The term ‘audio interface’ might not sound particularly rock ‘n’ roll, but what you can do with one most certainly is. Whether you want to make house or rock, record an instrument or vocals, it’s your gateway into the world of computer music-making.
If you’re at all interested in music production, it won’t take long for you to figure this out, but what isn’t so obvious is which audio interface you should buy.
Luckily, Arturia has now made the decision easy for you. Its new MiniFuse range contains three products that give you everything you need to start creating, so whether you want to record your guitar, make beats in Ableton Live, start sampling or play a collection of great-sounding software instruments, you’re good to go.
Designed to be easy and fun to use, the MiniFuses also offer great quality. We don’t want to bore you with specs, but we can assure you that the 110db dynamic range and -129dB equivalent input noise means that your recordings will sound crystal clear.
We think you’ll agree that the MiniFuses look pretty great, too and they’re compact enough to take anywhere. Backlit controls add a touch of class and make them easier to use in low-light conditions, while the rear-mounted USB hub is another smart addition, particularly if you’re running out of ports on your laptop.
What’s more, these are rugged interfaces, and come from a company that prides itself on the quality and reliability of its products. The MiniFuses are made of robust materials and carefully-chosen components, and have been put through more than 200 durability tests.
In fact, so confident is Arturia in the MiniFuse range that each model comes with a 5-year warranty as standard.
MiniFuse isn’t just a hardware product, though - each model also ships with a comprehensive software suite that gives you everything you need to start making music. The DAW is covered off by Ableton Live Lite, while the Analog Lab Intro plugin gives you plenty of classic synth sounds. More sound content can be downloaded via Splice, and you can also sample the delights of AutoTune Unlimited.
Whichever MiniFuse you choose (1, 2, or 4 - each one offers a different number of inputs and outputs) you’ll quickly discover that it’s a cut above the competition, giving you everything that rival interfaces offer and plenty more besides.
