Virtual Loopback channels 17-18

register my instrument

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 routing applications like Soundflower or Virtual Audio Cable.

It is most of the time not possible to play a standard line-level signal into an amplifier since amplifiers expect to receive high-impedance (Hi-Z) instrument level signals.

Playing a regular line-level signal will generate sub-optimal results due to the impedance and level mismatch between what is played and what is expected at the amp.

Reamping lets you playback an already recorded stem at the correct impedance.
This way, you can process it through several different amplifiers and capture the amplified sounds with different microphones anytime later after recording.

AudioFuse Studio Aux outputs are DC Coupled. This means these outputs are designed to deliver DC signals properly and ARE able to output offset currents.

Using the Aux DC coupled outputs and specific DAW plugins such as Live CV Tools, you can easily output CV signals from your DAW to control your modular and semi-modular synthesizers, such as Arturia's MiniBrute 2, MatrixBrute, etc...

No configuration is needed in the AFCC, but you may need to adjust the output level and use specific mono cable to connect to your synth CV input.

The AudioFuse Studio is equipped with a receiver enabling a best in class Bluetooth audio experience but it is not equipped with an transmitter.

It lets you connect smartphones, tablets and computers with AudioFuse Studio and stream music through the studio's speakers or to simply record the Bluetooth signal into your music software.

On the other hand, you cannot use the AudioFuse Studio to stream music from your computer to a Bluetooth speaker.
