Dual Mode Expander
The Arturia AudioFuse 8Pre is a dual-function interface and ADAT expander which boasts 8 channels of premium analog audio, rock-solid sync, USB-C, and optical connectivity. With our award-winning lineage of pristine analog quality, AudioFuse 8Pre is destined to become the expander of choice in studios and creative spaces around the world.
Our whole AudioFuse range uses our exclusive DiscretePRO© microphone preamps with fully independent Mic/Line circuits. AudioFuse 8Pre features 8 of these pristine preamps, and - on paper- their specs are outstanding. Almost 120dB of dynamic range, -131dB signal to noise ratio, a +/-0.02dB flat frequency response, but what does all this mean in practice
AudioFuse Creative Suite
AudioFuse 8Pre comes complete with the AudioFuse Creative Suite, an ever-evolving collection of software effects and instruments that will let you add your own unique signature to your music. Combining favorites from our award-winning "You'll Actually Use" series with Analog Lab Lite, AudioFuse 8Pre lets you also enjoy legendary signal processing effects and iconic synth sounds. Color the pristine inputs of AudioFuse 8Pre with stunning vintage effects!
Compatibility with all platforms
Professional and flexible, the AudioFuserange can work with any system, whether on PC, Mac, or Linux. When you need to record on-location and capture those moments of inspiration, connect to iOS and Android. No matter your device, AudioFuse brings your musical world together and keeps everything simple.
Plug & Play & No specific drivers
While you can go "under the hood" and get more out of our AudioFuse range with the AudioFuse Control Center, you can also use its basic functions straight out of the box. We made the decision to use generic drivers and universal USB2 to ensure you're always ready to record.
AudioFuse features exceptionally low latency as low as 3ms depending on your set-up, with a frequently measured value of 4.5ms on a wide range of computers. This lets you get right in the pocket of your groove when tracking, and makes for an immediate, tactile feel when performing.
Our AudioFuse range can be connected together in a variety of ways, cascading their inputs and outputs, and hugely expanding the scope and capability of your setup. Record more sources, send signals to more destinations, the creative possibilities are awesome.
AudioFuse Studio and AudioFuse 8Pre use the contemporary USB-C connection for its great latency, superb bandwidth, and backward USB2 compatibility. Now you can record anywhere, in any studio or creative space, safe in the knowledge your gear will simply work.

Works well, sounds fine
I bought this as an ADAT expander for my RME UFX II. It works well. I can't comment on the software or drivers as it's just plug and play for 8 more channels. The mic pre-amps sound reasonable enough. I am happy with the purchase.
