Ferrofish A32 – AD/DA Converter with ADAT and MADI Interfaces (Single Mode)



SKU: A32 Single Categories: , Tags: , , Brand:


Using Cirrus Logic converters, the single-mode Ferrofish A32 is an AD/DA converter with ADAT and MADI interfaces featuring dedicated analog input and output switches for selecting between +4 dBu, +13 dBu, and +20 dBu on each channel. The levels between can be set by the unit’s SHARC DSP to accommodate a wide variety of professional and consumer equipment with optimized analog performance.

  • Single-mode configuration for broadcast applications
  • In single-mode, SC signals can be transmitted over distances up to 6.2 miles/10 km
  • 32 x balanced analog I/O via D-Sub25 connectors, 32 to 192 kHz
  • 64 x 64 MADI channels—optical and coaxial
  • 32 x 32 ADAT channels—Toslink connectors
  • ADAT connectors can alternately be used as an optical S/PDIF or AES/EBU interface
  • Redundant MADI for backup—connect to both MADI optical and coaxial and the input automatically switches to the other source, if sync is lost
  • Thermally stabilized oscillator with very low jitter and high stability
  • MIDI over MADI—unit can be remote-controlled using MIDI data embedded in the same MADI cable
  • Zero-latency audio transfer between MADI input and MADI output—daisy-chain multiple A32 without any added latency or delay compensation
  • Cirrus Logic converters
  • 400 MHz SHARC DSP processes all 258 audio channels
  • 4 x TFT screens show all analog input and output levels at the same time and allow visualization of all settings—peak and level display
  • Intuitive one-knob operation and integrated help system, for ease of use
  • Extensive routing/mixing—route internally between all I/O channels and create sub-mixes
