Ferrofish A32pro Dante Multimode

32×32 AD/DA, MADI, ADAT, Dante Converter

The A32pro Dante is our flagship connecting digital and analog audio to the world of Dante: All interfaces, whether analog, MADI or ADAT, are brought using the integrated routing matrix into the Dante network. Of course, all features of the A32pro are still available.

The A32pro Dante is not just a converter – it’s also the ultimate problem solver thanks to its incredible flexibility, thanks to its modular hardware platform. Overall, the A32pro Dante processes 386 channels, all highly integrated into a 1 slim rack unit. Enumerating all the configurations of the A32pro Dante is almost impossible: in addition to the 32 x 32 studio-grade balanced analog inputs and outputs up to 192kHz, there are a stereo main out, four ADAT I/O, two MADI I/O ports (SFP slots) and of course Dante, brought out redundant on two RJ45 jacks. Everything is routable in groups of 8 channels each.

Clarity and operational reliability has first priority: Both Dante and MADI are laid out redundant, an essential feature for live operation! Of course, a second power supply can be connected, and thanks to the four multitouch TFT screens, the user always has full control.

Packed into a compact 1RU, the highly integrated converter is equipped with 32 x 32 balanced analog channels, brought out on eight D-SUB connectors. They deliver studio levels up to +20dBu, individually adjustable in 1dB steps. The sophisticated design, using latest generation ESS converters, accompanied with a temperature-compensated clock and jitter reduction PLL guarantees best crystal clear sound up to 192kHz.

Even operation of the A32pro Dante is done without any compromise, almost self explaining, as with all our products: A total of four multitouch TFT screens show the levels of all 64 channels, it can’t be done better. Controlling the unit also benefits from the screens: a sophisticated help system built into the device provides context-sensitive help for the selected function at all times. Control by the RemoteFish App (PC and Mac) is also possible via USB (USB-over-MIDI), MIDI, MIDI-over-MADI and Dante.

The two headphone outputs can monitor any analog or digital input or output: ideal for control or monitoring. As a monitoring format mono, stereo and even M/S is possible. In addition to the dual stereo operation a fully balanced mode using both outputs for even more output power is available.
