Ferrofish Pulse 16 MX

The Ferrofish Pulse 16 MX is a high-quality solution to connect a wide range of Analog, MADI, and ADAT equipment to a mixer or a computer interface — with up to 192 kHz.

The high-density converter provides 16 x 16 balanced analoge TRS-I/Os and can handle pro studio levels up to +20dBu ? adjustable in 1 dB steps. Optional +24 dBU I/Os and/or CV outputs are available.

The PULSE 16 MX is using the recent high-performance low-latency converter generation from Cirrus Logic. Combined with a temperature-compensated high-precision clock and an active jitter reduction hardware design, the 226-channel MX delivers an exceptional detailed sound.

On the digital side, the multi-format device provides an optical MADI I/O with 64 I/Os. 2 x 4 ADAT ports can convert all 16 analog I/Os ? even with up to 96 kHz.

The Pulse16MX?incorporates a Word Clock I/O and a MIDI I/O for embedding signals and remote control of the unit. Many popular features from the flagship A32 have been added as well: Preset Management, Panel Lock and the sophisticated routing matrix.

All in all the fan-less, small footprint device is a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications.

Ferrofish Pulse 16 MX Features:

Optical MADI I/O

The PULSE16?MX provides a MADI SFP module with optical LC connector. The MADI I/O supports daisy-chain delay compensation and carries MIDI-over-MADI. The default Multimode module can be exchanged with a Singlemode module.

Dual TFT Display

Two high-resolution TFT displays provide detailed level information for all 2 x 16 analog signals ? allowing the overview of the signal flow in and out of the unit. The innovative on-board contextual help, much loved by Ferrofish users, allows it to use the high-tech device, without reaching for the manual.

Internal Routing Matrix

The PULSE16?MX?provides a sophisticated internal matrix for the free routing and splitting of all 112 Ins to all 112 Outs in blocks of 8 channels. The? headphone output on the front allows it to monitor every mono or stereo I/O directly on the unit.

+24dBu I/O Option

This optional version raises the maximum input and output level of the 16 analog inputs and outputs from +20dBu to +24dBu, which then complies with the SMPTE standard.

CV Out Option

The CV version allows the output of DC voltage at the analog outputs of the Pulse16. This allows control voltages (CV) to be generated via a CV plugin in a DAW, allowing to control modular systems.


-8 to +20 dBU (Gain in 1 dB steps). Optional +24 dBU and/or CV.


SFP MADI module with optical LC connector (Multimode).


Each port transfers eight channels at a sample rate of 48 kHz (= 32 In + 32 Out).


BNC with 75 Ohm internal termination. On/Off via display.


For Remote Control and MIDI-over-MADI (with installed MADI module).


Monitoring of every PULSE stereo/mono I/O via an additional stereo DAC.
