The updated Arturia AudioFuse brings the 3ms latency of its Mac performance to Windows systems, offers greater CPU efficiency, and a new “sleep mode”.
Showing improvement across the board, the lower buffer sizes in the latest AudioFuse driver give a latency speed improvement of between 30% and 45%, bringing to total round-trip latency down as low as 3ms. A buffer size of just 8 samples can now be used without reducing CPU performance.
This enhancement goes hand in hand with general stability improvements. Windows users will find they are able to make even more out of their CPU, with the extra efficiency letting them use more tracks, more effects, and more virtual instruments in their DAWs.
The enhanced Windows drivers will be included within the AudioFuse Control Center, the companion software that unlocks many of the features inside Arturia’s interface.
The update also delivers a new “sleep mode” which can be enabled by holding down the Arturia button, letting users power down their units when not in use.
Users will also be able to access the technical measurements of their specific unit in the MyArturia section of the Arturia website.
In conjunction with the update, Arturia released a video featuring Jean-Michel Jarre sharing his thoughts on the AudioFuse, embedded above.
The AudioFuse update is available now, via the Arturia site.
