    CV Out Option is Built to Order in the Factory and is Special Order Only 

    The CV Option provides 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, controlling modular systems. 


    The most affordable, high-quality
    MADI converter. Period.

    The PULSE16MX is the 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. The PULSE16 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.
