The Pulse 16 DX is much more than a 16 x 16 channel AD / DA converter. In addition to studio-grade analog inputs and outputs up to 192kHz, the Pulse 16 DX offers an impressive number of digital interfaces, ready for any task. Analog, ADAT, and MADI audio is brought together into the device and can be distributed over a sophisticated routing matrix in groups of 8 channels. In addition, the Dante interface with 64 x 64 channels (also integrated into the routing matrix), redundantly implemented via two RJ45 sockets, connects the Pulse 16 DX to the network and opens up a new dimension of flexibility. No matter which analog or digital signals are to be connected, the Pulse 16 DX does the job.
Packed in a just 1RU, this highly integrated converter has 16 x 16 balanced analog TRS sockets using studio levels up to +20dBu individually adjustable in 1dB steps. The low latency Cirrus Logic converters, accompanied with a a temperature-compensated clock and jitter reduction PLL guarantee crystal clear sound.
Besides Dante, the 4 x 4 ADAT ports deliver enough bandwidth to convert all 16 x 16 analog signals at 96kHz, or even 32 x 32 channels at 48kHz. MADI adds another 64 x 64 channels, and is implemented using a modular SFP conection to offer different MADI standards (like Singlemode). Just replace the MADI module by a different model.
Two TFT screens make configuration simple with information displayed clearly on the screens. Remote control via MIDI and MADI is also possible.
The headphone can be connected to any analog or digital input or output: ideal for control or monitoring.
High Quality AD/DA
The Pulse DX uses the latest low latency AD/DA converters from Cirrus Logic with a maximum sample rate of up to 192kHz and sophisticated external circuitryvfor sound with neutral frequency response and lowest THD + N. Using TRS jacks, all channels handle +20dBu studio level maximum, while each channel is individually adjustable in 1dB steps.
Dante Plug & Play
Integrate the Pulse16 DX seamlessly into your Dante network. Just plug it in and the device is visible on the network and ready to be routed using the Dante Controller software. Together with the Dante Virtual Soundcard (sold separately), the Pulse16 DX turns into a universal audio interface.
The Pulse16 DX has a modular MADI interface. The MADI SFP slot is equipped with an optical LC multimode module, which can be replaced, for example, by a Singlemode module (sold separately). In addition to the 64 x 64 audio channels, a MIDI signal is also embedded, which can be used for device control and for routing to the MIDI interfaces.
Internal Routing Matrix
All 176 x 176 analog and digital channels of the Pulse16 DX are brought together in groups of 8 using the internal routing matrix. For easy monitoring, any channel, mono or stereo, can be selected for headphone output.
Dual TFT Screens
Keep track of all 32 analog channels at any time on two TFT screens with clear status and function information.
Flexible Remote Control
Comprehensive remote software for PC and MAC is available to control the Pulse16 DX. In addition to USB, the A32 Dante can also be connected via MIDI and MIDI over MADI. All Ferrofish devices are automatically detected and listed in the software.
