Lifesaver, problem solver, flexibility champion. The A32 Dante is a worldwide unique solution to convert and route all-important PRO-Audio formats with the highest possible I/O density in a single HU rack device: Analog, MADI, ADAT, and Dante/AES67 – all with up to 192 kHz.
The incredible flexible converter provides 32 x 32 balanced analog I/Os in D-Sub25 format with pro studio levels up to +20dBu – adjustable in 1 dB steps.
The A32 Dante 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 386-channel behemoth delivers an exceptionally detailed sound.
On the digital side, the multi-format device provides a MADI I/O with 64 channels – as redundant BNC and optical fiber ports. The additional 2 x 4 ADAT ports – port 4 switchable to SPDIF – can convert all 32 analog I/Os.
The A32 Dante incorporates a Word Clock I/O and a classic MIDI I/O for embedding signals and remote control of the unit. On top of it: intuitive one-knob control, Preset Management, Panel Lock, and a powerful cross-format routing matrix (see below).
All in all the fan-less, small footprint Smart Converter & Routing system is a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications. The efficiency puzzle is solved – finally.
Dante Plug & Play Eco System
The A32 Dante fits directly into scalable network infrastructures of the Dante Eco-System – with Plug & Play. The powerful Dante control software allows the routing of all channels freely within the network. Combined with the Virtual Dante soundcard, the A32 Dante turns into a powerful audio interface.
4 x TFT Display with Smart Control
Four high-resolution TFT displays provide detailed level information for all 2 x 32 analog signals – allowing the overview of the signal flow in and out of the unit. The innovative onboard contextual help, much loved by Ferrofish users, allows it to use the high-tech device, without reaching for the manual.
Internal Routing Matrix
The A32 Dante provides a sophisticated internal matrix for the free routing and splitting of all 192 Ins to all 192 Outs in blocks of 8 channels. The headphone output allows it to monitor every mono or stereo I/O plus one of 7 submixes directly from the front of the unit.
The high-quality analog circuit is accompanied by two powerful DSPs. A high-performance Sharc-DSP with floating-point calculation and 80-bit wide accumulator processes the audio data with unmatched accuracy.
Redundant Power Supply
The A32 Dante provides two automatically switch-over power supplies for worldwide operation. Both external power supplies can be replaced in seconds and even switched during operation without interruption. This way the A32 Dante does not need to be sent in for repair if a power supply fails.
Flexible Remote Control
The A32 Dante can be remotely controlled via MIDI, MIDI-over-MADI, USB, and the Dante Network. Dante and MADI audio streams can be used to send and receive embedded MIDI messages.
