    Live Saver. Problem Solver.
    Flexibility Champ.

    The A32pro is a worldwide unique solution to convert and route all-important PRO-Audio formats with the highest possible I/O density in a single HU rack device: Analog, MADI and ADAT – all with up to 192 kHz.

    The incredible flexible converter provides 32 balanced analog I/Os in D-Sub25 format with pro studio levels up to +20dBu – adjustable in 1 dB steps.

    High-Quality analog conversion: with the latest high-performance low-latency converter generation from ESS, the device sets a new milestone for multi-channel conversion. Combined with a temperature-compensated high-precision clock and an active jitter reduction hardware design, the 388-channel behemoth delivers an exceptionally detailed sound.

    A total of four multitouch TFT screens show the levels of all 64 channels. A sophisticated help system provides context-sensitive help for the selected function at all times.

    Remote Control by the RemoteFish App (PC and Mac) is also possible via USB (USB-over-MIDI), MIDI, MIDI-over-MADI.

    MADI: The A32pro comes with two redundant MADI SFP ports (64 fully routable channels). Any combination of optical and/or BNC SFP modules can be used. The device ships with a single optical Multimode I/O module, supporting 64 channels at 48 kHz.

     

    ADAT: 2 x 4 TOSLINK ports – port 4 switchable to SPDIF – can convert all 32 analog I/Os.

    The A32pro provides a Word Clock I/O and a classic MIDI I/O for embedding signals and remote control of the unit. On top of it: GPIO, intuitive one-knob control, Preset Management, Panel Lock and a powerful cross-format routing matrix (see below). The A32pro series can also operate as a highly flexible digital audio signal router.

    Additionally, two headphone outputs on the front and an analog stereo output on the back can be used to monitor any channel, sending it to several destinations.

    All in all the fan-less, small footprint Smart Converter & Routing system is a huge problem solver for studio and live sound applications. The efficiency puzzle for live, studio and broadcast is solved – finally.
