  1. This is an audio interface for people who don’t know better.

    Who in their right mind will trust Arturia with the most crucial part of his studio?
    You need to have a very short memory if you don’t remember all the problem they have with drivers and the slow support with all of there hardware (minilab / beatstep update petition rings a bell?)

    No wonder the second feature is as stand alone converter, But it’s not special, most 8 preamps interface with ADAT can act as a stand alone converter. its a smart adverting move… I can understand why Arturia will want to emphasis that.
    Now tell me how much you love and satisfied of your Arturia products, Just remember, a midi keyboard is not the same as an audio interface.

    Good luck for the suckers who will buy it, I’m for one will never buy into this money grubbing machine.

    1. Don’t be so quick to dismiss. I scaled down to the small AudioFuse after 20 years of using various flavors of Motu gear. I’m mostly synth focused and it’s been a treat with the features it has. I’ve recorded and gigged with it. With this 8pre, they’re hoping to capitalize on folks like me who wouldn’t mind some extra inputs coming in via ADAT. The price point is pretty spot on for a solid input expansion device and there’s not much competition for this kind of device.

      I would’ve probably bought this if I hadn’t just been gifted a 14 input, 4 bus mixer that I’m using before the AudioFuse.

      Fwiw, I’ve had zero issues with drivers, connectivity, latency or dropouts. They took forever to release it so I think they spent time getting it right.
