Ferrofish A32 ready for Dante

The A32 Dante Version has an additional interface with 64 digital inputs and 64 digital outputs, which can be easily integrated into existing DANTE networks.

Alternatively, with an interconnection of two A32 DANTEs, a live recording on the computer of up to 64 channels is possible at any time. In this case, a separate sound card (such as, for example, when using the ADAT or MADI ports) is not necessary.

The intuitive operating concept and the redundancy options, as well as the multiple submix and routing possibilities, make the A32 DANTE an ideal component of every DANTE interconnected system.

Extensive Routing Possibilities

The A32 is designed for MADI. Up to 64 channels can be transferred using a simple pair of glass fiber cables (or coaxial cable) spanning a distance of up to 2 kilometers (1.2 miles).

Besides MADI, the A32 also offers full ADAT integration. Four full-fledged ADAT I/O ports allow use of all 64 analog channels, even without MADI.

Thanks to the MIDI over MADI feature, the A32 can be remote controlled using MIDI data embedded in the same MADI cable. The audio transfer between the MADI input and MADI output is done with zero latency!

Stability First

We know you need a reliable system. Thats why we have two power inputs. If one power supply fails, you see a warning on the TFT screens, and you can search for the failure while the A32 still works with the other supply.

MADI is also laid out redundant: If you connect both, optical and coax, the input automatically switches to the other source, if sync is lost.

Advanced Converter Chip

High quality converter chips with excellent audio performance are supported by a sophisticated analog amplifier circuit.

The high quality analog 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!

Giving Control back to You

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!

You don’t need to install a program to have the ability to see the levels and adjust everything. Just take a look on the A32, and you see what’s happening, all channels are clearly visible on high resolution level meters.

Direct Monitoring Analog or Digital Signals

If you ever wondered what happens on a analog or digital channel you will find the headphone connector very useful. With one touch of the encoder you see the headphone screen.

There you can set the volume, and select the source for the headphone output. You can also store up to seven mixes, and just select one to hear it on the headphones.
