The Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX Dante converter is now shipping!
First announced at Musikmesse back in April, the new Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX adds a Dante option to the range of AD/DA and format converters produced by German manufacturers Ferrofish.
What’s more, Ferrofish have also released the beta of their control software RemoteFish, which brings full remote control of the Ferrofish A32 and A32 Dante converters to Windows PCs.

Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX: Analogue <> ADAT <> MADI <> Dante
The Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX is equipped with 16 analogue inputs and 16 analogue outputs, plus Dante, MADI and ADAT connectivity. Through its two RJ45 connectors, the Pulse 16 DX expands any Dante audio network via its 16 AD/DA Cirrus Logic converters. Whether working in 48 kHz, 96 kHz or 192 kHz at 24 bits, the Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX will always deliver a full complement of the highest quality 16 analogue I/O channels.
MADI and ADAT integrated
In addition to Dante connectivity, the Pulse 16 DX also offers full ADAT and MADI functionality. There are eight ADAT TOSLINK connectors, and MADI users are given the choice to operate in multimode or singlemode with easy-to-switch SFP modules that allow reconfiguration without the need of a factory modification. The Ferrofish Pulse 16 DX can even function as a format converter. For example, you are able to convert MADI to Dante or maybe add 16 analogue channels to an incoming MADI stream and route them onto your Dante network.
Easy level management and great sound
Thanks to the two TFT displays, you have full visibility over all 32 channels at a glance. You also have exceptional control with each channel adjustable in 1 dB increments. Most importantly, the Pulse 16 DX continues the Ferrofish reputation of delivering a superb sound, thanks in part to its active jitter reduction, ensuring accurate results and perfect conversion.
Ferrofish on tour
And if you need even more channels, the Ferrofish range also includes the A32 and A32 Dante, which feature a whopping 32 analogue inputs and 32 analogue outputs in a 1U format, along with the many useful features listed above.
Ferrofish has also just announced the beta release of RemoteFish, a new control software GUI for control over your Ferrofish converter. Levels, gains and channel routing can now all be controlled remotely from a computer, via USB, MIDI or MIDI over MADI.
Ferrofish RemoteFish is currently Windows only and is available for the A32 and A32 Dante, with support for the Pulse 16 range coming soon.
RemoteFish also requires that you upgrade your device to the latest firmware. Both are available to download from the Ferrofish website.
