Product Overview The Evolution Of The Ferrofish A32
Ferrofish set a very high standard with the A16 MkII. There had never before been a quality solution for MADI conversion at such an attractive price. And with an ever increasing demand for more channels to be converted, Ferrofish are setting a new standard with the A32.

In addition to a complete redesign of the A/D – D/A section, many other useful features have been added. The new A32 is again a quantum leap in converter technology, for the same price per channel!

Ferrofish A32-Made For Madi
Up to 64 channels can be transferred using a simple pair of glass fibre cables (or coaxial cable) spanning a distance of up to 2 kilometres (1.2 miles).

Thanks to the MIDI over MADI feature, the A32 is remote controllable using MIDI data embedded in the same MADI cable. The audio transfer between the MADI input and MADI output is done with zero latency, so you can daisy chain multiple A32 without any added latency or delay compensation. This is what we call plug-and-play!

Your Companion For Live And Studio Work
Besides MADI, the A32 also offers full ADAT integration. Four ADAT I/O ports allow use of all 64 analog channels, even without MADI. So the A32 is perfectly suited for the professional and ambitious home recording studio.

One of the ADAT connectors can alternately be used as an optical S/PDIF or AES/EBU interface. This port has a sample rate converter inside, so it's easy to use even when the connected unit is not able to sync to an external clock.

The analogue side of the A32 also has lot to offer: High quality converter chips with excellent audio performance are supported by a sophisticated analogue amplifier circuit.

The gain of each channel can be adjusted separately in 0.5dB steps. The standard levels (+4dBu,+13dBu and +20dBu) are switched in the analogue part, so performance of the analog converters is maintained.

Control Of All 64 Channel Levels And Settings
The new visual control concept of the A32 embarks on a new path: Besides the precise level meters of all 64 analog channels, the four TFT displays offer a very new, self explanatory method of operation – it's unlikely you will ever need the manual!

To the audio under control, we added a headphone output on the front side. This not only allows direct monitoring of any analogue or digital signal, but also works as submix bus.

The high quality analogue circuit is partnered on the digital side with a Sharc DSP. This processor takes great care of the digital audio with it's floating point arithmetic and 80 bit wide accumulator, so that on the digital side, not a bit gets lost!
