Arturia to release audio interface

Arturia has announced that they will release an audio interface. Not a lot of info about it yet but judging from their press release it will be an all-purpose one.

Take the mind-boggling number of audio formats out there. Think microphone, line, phono, and instrument inputs, each with different levels requiring different impedance. How about effortlessly connecting to Mac and PC computers, an Apple iPad or an Android device? Then there are all the digital audio formats (ADAT, S/PDIF, et al) as well as word clock to cater for those wishing to synchronise with the professional audio world. USB and MIDI might be useful, too! You get the picture. One visionary presidential person present at Arturia’s 15th anniversary celebrations sees the bigger picture perfectly clearly. Asked an incredulous Frédéric Brun: “Do you know how many audio interfaces on the market offer that? Zero!”

The unveiling will be in 2015.
