When you’re putting your heart and soul into your music and
productions, you need to know your audio is in safe hands.
AudioFuse 8Pre offers unrivalled quality at its price point. The 8
Discrete Pro© preamps and analog signal path will let you truly
“hear” your audio for the first time. The super-low Equivalent Input
Noise (EIN) lets you capture every subtle detail, while the huge
input gain will drive even the most demanding low-output mics. All
this with a totally flat frequency response for total transparency.
The superb quality doesn’t stop there, AudioFuse 8Pre also features
the best A/D converters available.
Even if this unit was just 8 world-class preamps, it would be worth
the money, but AudioFuse 8Pre gives you so much more.
The best of both
If you’re a recording professional you know that no two days are the
same. You need gear that gives you the versatility you need to be
prepared for the unexpected.
AudioFuse 8Pre can fulfill any studio role. You already have a
powerful interface, but need more inputs? AudioFuse 8Pre is the
perfect ADAT preamp expander. Want to record multiple channels, but
don’t own an ADAT-expandable interface? AudioFuse 8Pre can connect
directly with your computer so you can record multi-tracked
instruments all at once. It’s a high-performance audio interface
with USB connectivity, speaker outputs and independent headphone
Use on its own; expand your existing interface; cascade 2 AudioFuse
8Pre together via ADAT for 16 superb preamps. AudioFuse 8Pre does it
Sometimes it’s the little things that matter most. You need your
gear to complement and enhance the way you work, and that’s the
driving force behind AudioFuse 8Pre.
AudioFuse 8Pre is easy to use, with one-button, one-function design,
and features backward-compatible USB-C connectivity for super
compatibility. It’s housed in a robust metal chassis, and the
included rack ears can be mounted to either face forward or down,
letting it stand freely or be integrated into your 19” racks
depending on your setup. It also features ADAT in, so you could send
your musicians cue mixes using its headphone output.
We’ve spent years working together with studios, producers, and
musicians at all levels to minimize the “pain points” other
interfaces give you on a daily basis. AudioFuse 8Pre is the result.
