Arturia has today (24 October) announced the launch of a brand new “flagship” interface – AudioFuse 16Rig – which the brand says will “challenge” the interface market.

The advanced audio and MIDI interface is designed for hardware users wanting to connect and synchronise their whole setup. Arturia says it features an “unmatched” variety of inputs, outputs, and creative features.

AudioFuse 16Rig is the latest in its Fuse line up which also features other products such as its Studio and 8Pre interfaces, but this offering appears to be the grandest one of the bunch so far.

Users can keep an entire setup connected via the rear I/O so that the front panel can be used for extra mics, instruments, or devices. It’s described as “perfect for a studio full of synths, dense band recordings, intricate monitoring, and more.”

The interface also gives recordings better shine and clarity with premium 24-bit AD/DA converters, and it can also be used for DAWless recording, live mixing, and computer-free audio configuration. AudioFuse 16Rig can process audio and MIDI signals without a computer connected due to dual internal MIDI-controllable mixers.

You can control settings via built-in controls or via included software, and configure your 16Rig for desktop use or rackmount operation. Users can save configurations and mix settings as presets, control modular gear with DC-coupled outputs, use the Reamp feature for versatile guitar tracking, and connect extra USB devices.

Back in September, MusicTech rounded up the best audio interfaces to buy in 2023 that retail for under $500. Included in our selection was the Arturia Minifuse 2 due to its elegant, compact casing and clean sound with plenty of headroom too.

A price point is yet to be unveiled for the AudioFuse 16Rig, but further details can be found via Arturia.
