16 x 16 AD/DA <> ADAT converter with DC-coupled Outputs
The Pulse 16 CV is a modified version of the standard Pulse 16 but with DC-coupled outputs, allowing for the sending of control voltages (CV) to other equipment such as analogue and modular synthesizers.
With DC-coupling on all 16 analogue outputs, control voltages can be used alongside popular hardware modules such as those used by Eurorack, Frac Rack and Modcan/Moog/Synthesizers.com modular setups.
With the Pulse 16, Ferrofish continues their successful tradition of designing high-quality and affordable AD/DA converters, expanding the existing range that consists of the A16 MK-II, A32 and A32 Dante. The new Pulse 16 offers 16 x 16 balanced analogue inputs and outputs, and can handle pro studio levels up to +20dBu. On the digital side, four ADAT I/O ports provide a full 16 x 16 channel operation even in 96 kHz SMUX mode.
Full control and easy operation
The headphones output on the front panel of the Pulse 16 allows you to monitor every mono or stereo signal on the fly, and two TFT displays provide detailed level information for all 32 signals at a glance. The innovative on-board contextual help, much loved by Ferrofish A32 and Ferrofish A32 Dante users, is also visible when navigating through menus and makes using the Pulse 16 a breeze.
Software Control with RemoteFish (Mac/PC)
Remote control your Ferrofish Pulse 16 via MIDI with the RemoteFish software, available as a free download for both Mac and PC. RemoteFish provides an extended user interface, for control over all input and output gains, channel routing, adjusting settings, and saving and loading presets.

Upgrade your Ferrofish Pulse 16 to a Ferrofish Pulse 16 MX
If you're the owner of the Ferrofish Pulse 16, you can upgrade your device with MADI Optical I/O simply by purchasing an official Ferrofish MADI SFP module and Upgrade Code. With this module equipped, all 16 x 16 channels can be used with sample rates up to 192kHz.
The Pulse 16 MADI Upgrade consists of two parts:
- The Ferrofish MADI SFP Module. Only genuine Ferrofish MADI SFP modules are supported.
- An unlock code, which you will receive via email from Synthax Audio UK after purchase.
The Ferrofish MADI SFP module and Upgrade Code are available to buy together as a bundle here.
(Both parts can also be purchased separately if required, although please note that both the SFP module and unlock code are needed to perform the upgrade.)
