The AudioFuse 16Rig is the new flagship of Arturia’s successful AudioFuse line. Building on the experience gained during the development of the smaller interfaces, the 16Rig is an impressive rack-mount or desktop interface designed to serve as the creative hub of your studio. Got lots of synths or external effects? With a plethora of ins and outs, the AudioFuse 16Rig allows you to leave everything connected and route any signal to where you want it to go.

Leave everything connected: AudioFuse 16Rig

With 16 analog line inputs, the Arturia AudioFuse 16Rig seems a perfect match for studios with a lot of gear such as synths, grooveboxes, or external effects. You also get two XLR-1/4” combo jacks on the front, so there’s a place to connect your mics, as well. Inputs 3 and 4 are mirrored on the front on a minijack connector, which is great for plugging in a media player or other portable gear.

On the output side, the AudioFuse 16Rig features no less than eight analog line outputs. These are DC-coupled, so they can run your modular. In addition, there’s a pair of outputs for your monitors.

But that’s not all. The AudioFuse 16Rig also features dual ADAT I/Os for up to 16 additional channels, so you won’t run out of channels anytime soon. You also get Word Clock I/O and MIDI (1x In, 2x Out/Thru). The interface connects to the computer via USB-C. In addition, there are three USB-A ports for connecting additional gear (2 on the front, 1 on the back).

Comprehensive Routing

This impressive array of I/O is complemented by equally powerful internal mixing and routing capabilities. The AudioFuse 16Rig offers two low-latency internal mixers, which let you route signals any way you want. According to Arturia, things like multiple effect send/returns, quick A/B speaker monitoring, and more are easy to set up via the AudioFuse Control Center software. You can even use the interface standalone for DAWless sessions. A nice color display provides real-time feedback on levels, settings, and more.

Is the Arturia AudioFuse 16Rig the interface electronic studios have been waiting for? With a huge amount of flexible connectivity, I think it’s got a lot going for it.
