Connect a wide range of external analog and ADAT studio equipment to a mixer or a computer interface that complies with the SMPTE standard.

The Pulse 16 from Ferrofish is the high-quality solution to connect a wide range of external analog and ADAT studio equipment to a mixer or a computer interface. The high-density converter provides 16 x 16 balanced analog TRS-I/Os and can handle pro studio levels up to +20dBu, adjustable in 1 dB steps. Optional +24 dBU I/Os and/or CV outputs are available. 2 x 4 ADAT ports provide full 16 x 16 channel operation, even with up to 96 kHz. The optical ADAT ‘Lightpipe’ interface is still the most affordable way to transfer a variety of audio channels. Originally designed for the Alesis Digital Audio Tape machine, hence the name, in 1991 ADAT is reliable, standardized and still everywhere. The Pulse series is using the recent high-performance low-latency converter generation from Cirrus Logic. Combined with a temperature-compensated high-precision clock and an active jitter reduction hardware design, the fan-less, 98-channel Pulse 16 delivers an exceptional detailed sound. The Pulse 16 incorporates a Word Clock I/O and a MIDI I/O for embedding signals and remote control of the unit. Many popular features from the flagship A32 have been added as well, such as Preset Management, Panel Lock and the sophisticated routing matrix. This optional version raises the maximum input and output level of the 16 analog inputs and outputs from +20dBu to +24dBu, which then complies with the SMPTE standard.
