register my instrument
  • All analog inputs are routed to USB input channels 1-8.

  • All ADAT inputs are routed to USB input channels 9-16.

  • USB output channels 1-8 are routed to analog outputs 1-8.

  • USB output channels 9-16 are routed to ADAT outputs 1-8. Note: The AFCC allows you to alter the routing of the output channels.

  • USB input channels 17 and 18 can be used as a virtual loopback input for the Main 1-2 or Cue mix

  • The speaker/headphone outputs can be set either to USB output 1-2 or set to internal Cue mixer


ADAT Expander mode

In ADAT mode, the AudioFuse 8Pre becomes a bidirectional ADAT expander with 8 preamps and 10 analog outputs, rooted as described below:

  • All analog inputs are routed to ADAT outputs.

  • All ADAT inputs are routed to analog outputs.

  • The speaker/headphone outputs can be set either to ADAT inputs 1-2 or set to internal Cue mixer

  • The AudioFuse 8Pre will not be shown in your computer's audio device lists. It is only shown when the unit is in USB mode.
  • You can still use the AFCC when the AudioFuse 8Pre is in ADAT mode; simply connect the USB cable.

Virtual Loopback channels 17-18

In USB mode, extra inputs (17 - 18) are available.

These virtual channels are connected to a dedicated USB record stream, letting you record the output of other applications directly in your DAW.

This is very convenient if you don't want to use audio rooting applications like Soundflower or Virtual Audio Cable.

Channels 1 and 2 are equipped with an auto-switching circuitry.
With this system, when plugging plug a cable into one of the front connectors, AudioFuse 8Pre will switch the connection automatically from back to front. Likewise, when the front cable is unplugged, the connection will switch automatically from front to back.
