Studio full of synths?
Ensemble recording?

Explore a handful of scenarios where AudioFuse 16Rig won’t simply excel at getting the job done - it’ll make your creative life easier.

Hooking up a synth rig
Mono and stereo, analog and digital, keyboard and desktop - united.

For the synth lovers, analog enthusiasts, hands-on beat makers and beyond, AudioFuse 16Rig is purpose-built to handle hardware - and lots of it. Connect up to 16 mono inputs out of the box, configure stereo channels for maximum polysynth width, hook it up to ADAT-compatible expanders, And even send CV signals to your modular setup from its DC-coupled outputs.

Different monitor mixes
Not everyone wants to hear the same thing during a session or performance.

AudioFuse 16Rig’s Cue Mixer lets you create an entirely separate mix, with different channels, levels, and panning, that can be sent to a separate headphone or speaker output. Great for recording drums with guide tracks, keeping lead & backing vocals in harmony, or creating sub-mixes for on-the-fly processing.

Connections ready for any session
The perfect balance between your always-connected gear and unexpected additions.

Some things never change, but every session can bring something different so it helps to be ready. Keep your staple instruments and devices connected to AudioFuse 16Rig’s rear I/Os, while still having plenty of options at the front for when someone brings a different guitar, their own mic, a tape recorder, or a new sample recorded on their phone.

Multiple effects chains
Customize every intersection between your inputs and your effects.

Map out multiple send-return chains in visual detail and create custom effects chains with the help of AudioFuse Control Center’s matrix. You might want reverb and compression on your vocals, distortion and chorus on your synths, and a dubby sprinkling of Delay TAPE-201 on your drum bus - no sweat.

A smarter

Enjoy an easier recording and production workflow with an interface that opens up new creative pathways; AudioFuse 16Rig is designed to proactively overcome any hurdles before you’ve even encountered them.

Save configurations for instant recall

Different song, different mix, same connections? Save your settings as a preset so you can quickly recall or switch between them; great for saving time in sessions or giving you instant flexibility for live performance.

Control your modular

Create a bridge between the flexibility of your DAW and the tactility of your synth hardware with CV control. Using the right software, you can send control voltages from AudioFuse 16Rig’s DC-coupled outputs to compatible gear like Eurorack modules or CV-ready desktop synths for sequencing, modulating, and composing.

Reamping & high-impedance headphones

Send your dry guitar stems straight to external effects or amps without needing a DI box thanks to front panel outputs with true analog zero-latency passthrough. Not only can these outputs (3-4) send line or instrument level signals; you can also configure them to connect high-impedance headphones for that extra boost when needed.

All the USB connections you’ll need

Computer connections can come at a premium; AudioFuse 16Rig’s 3 USB hub slots are primed for connecting bus-powered MIDI controllers, external drives or USB sticks, and USB MIDI devices using class-compliant connectivity - so you’ll never have to worry.

internal mixers

Go DAWless and operate AudioFuse 16Rig’s two internal mixers totally standalone, no computer connection needed.


See how your mix is behaving in real-time with AudioFuse 16Rig’s full-color display, showing levels, channels, vital settings, and more.

Quick-access controls

Essential info, settings, and visual feedback on your project is only ever a click away with accessible buttons next to the display.

MIDI controllable

Tweak and automate certain settings in your mix and play AudioFuse 16Rig like an instrument with CC assignments that can be controlled by MIDI gear.

Let’s talk about

Make MIDI play an even bigger role in your setup.

From familiar synchronization to applications you might not expect. AudioFuse 16Rig pushes MIDI to its limits in the name of enhancing your audio experience.

MIDI 5-pin DIN

Send and receive MIDI information in connection with your DAW, your hardware synths, and more, and utilize two MIDI Thru connections to split incoming signals.

Standalone operation

Enjoy seamless MIDI communication with all of your compatible devices without needing a computer connection thanks to AudioFuse 16Rig’s standalone operation.

USB class-compliant

When 5-pin DIN isn’t available, hook up your MIDI devices via AudioFuse 16Rig’s dedicated USB MIDI port to continue sending & receiving information.

MIDI CC mixer controls

MIDI CC assignments for AudioFuse 16Rig’s main internal mixer controls let you adjust, sequence, and even modulate elements of your mix with your DAW or MIDI hardware.

A perfect
control center (AFCC)

Beneath the intuitive, hands-on control on the surface of AudioFuse lies the power and versatility of a pro studio.

AudioFuse allows you to keep on top of your projects, so you can feel confident no matter what musical scenario comes your way.

As the next-generation audio interface, AudioFuse lets you access a large number of fundamental features directly from its top panel. Once it's connected to a computer, AudioFuse transforms into a full-featured mixing console.

AudioFuse Control Center controls the mixer, selection of inputs, routing, monitoring, and additional functions such as sampling rate, Clock Source, Pad, Cue, and more. Another useful touch is that AudioFuse will remember the latest AFCC settings for standalone use until the next time you connect and change them.


No matter what spec you look at, you'll find uncompromising quality at every point.

We present actual real-world performance measurements (in compliance with AES17 standards) rather than the misleading chipset performance that companies sometimes publish. Measurements were performed on a high-end Audio Precision APX555 testing instrument. Measurements are of analog input path, taken at insert point.
