In A Snapshot: Ferrofish A32 32 Channel AD/DA Converter


The Ferrofish A32 is the powerful new 32 in, 32 out AD/DA converter from the company that brought us the extremely successful A16 MK-II. This time around Ferrofish have managed to go even further, cramming a hugely impressive amount of I/O into 1U of rack-space whilst keeping the price-point extremely competitive. Featuring both MADI and ADAT functionality, the Ferrofish A32 also boasts powerful routing capabilities plus detailed channel metering across its 4 eye-catching TFT displays.


The A32 is designed for MADI – the digital audio interface for professionals. Up to 64 channels can be transferred using a simple pair of glass fiber cables (or coaxial cable) spanning a distance of up to 1.2 miles. 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, so you can daisy chain multiple A32 without any added latency or delay compensation. This is what we call plug-and-play.
