Until December 9, the Ferrofish Pulse 16 AD/DA converter is available at a special price. So could be a good opportunity to cash in on the offer and upgrade the conversion of your studio setup.
The Pulse 16 is a 16 in / 16 out 24-Bit 96 kHz single rack-u converter with precise variable gain on all channels. If you’re looking to expand your ADAT desktop interface to add analogue mixdown or summing capabilities, this is an affordable way to do it.
Working with the Ferrofish Pulse 16
The dual TFT screens on the front panel allow you to navigate the device settings and make adjustments to levels. There is also a headphones output on the front panel, which is digitally controlled, and it has the option of monitoring in mono or stereo.
On the rear panel, the ports you’ll use most often are the two rows of 16 TRS inputs and outputs that allow easy routing to your mixer or patch bay. You also have 32 ADAT ins and outs via the eight TOSLINK ports.
In addition to this, there is the option of adding MADI connectivity, which allows sample rates of up to 192 kHz. MIDI over MADI is also supported, and Ferrofish offers great compatibility with RME devices.
Overall, the Pulse 16 is a useful and upgradable expansion unit that gives you plenty of ins and outs at a decent price per channel. If you are thinking of taking your workflow into the hybrid domain where you’re doing more analogue routing and processing it’s a worthwhile option.
