The Swiss-Army knife of audio. Dantified.
The PULSE16DX is the high-quality solution to connect and route a wide range of Analog, MADI, ADAT, and Dante equipment – with up to 192 kHz.
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.
Combined with a temperature-compensated high-precision clock and an active jitter reduction hardware design, the 354-channel DX delivers an exceptionally detailed sound.
On the digital side, the multi-format device provides an optical MADI I/O with 64 I/Os. 2 x 4 ADAT ports can convert all 16 analog I/Os – even with up to 96 kHz.
On top of it, the DX adds 64 x 64 channels of Dante/AES67 to an already impressive array of various I/Os – unique in this size and price range.
The Pulse16DX 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: Preset Management, Panel Lock, and the sophisticated routing matrix.
All in all the fan-less, small footprint device is a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications.
The PULSE16 DX uses the most recent low-latency AD&DA generation from Cirrus Logic. The high-performance converters capture and restore audio signals with all details, a highly neutral frequency response, and low distortion. All analog inputs and output are using balanced TRS jacks, and can be set independently to levels between -8dBu and +20dBu in steps of 1 dB.
Dante Plug & Play Eco System
The PULSE16 DX 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 PULSE16 DX turns into a powerful audio interface.
Optical MADI I/O
The PULSE16 DX provides a MADI SFP module with optical LC connector. The MADI I/O supports daisy-chain delay compensation and carries MIDI-over-MADI. The default Multimode module can be exchanged with a Singlemode module (ordered separately).
Internal Routing Matrix
The PULSE16 DX provides a sophisticated internal matrix for the free routing and splitting of all 176 Ins to all 176 Outs in blocks of 8 channels. The headphone output on the front allows it to monitor every mono or stereo I/O directly on the unit.
Dual TFT Display
Two high-resolution TFT displays provide detailed level information for all 2 x 16 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.
Flexible Remote Control
The PULSE16 DX can be remotely controlled via MIDI, MIDI-over-MADI, and the Dante Network. Dante and MADI audio streams can be used to send and receive embedded MIDI messages.
