Digital connectivity comes in the form of an optical MADI I/O and two sets of ADAT I/O, giving you a variety of interfacing options. Attach two Ferrofish A16 MK-II's to the RME HDSPe RayDAT over ADAT for 32 channels of analogue I/O, or four to the RME MADIface USB for 64 channels of analogue I/O. Or if you really want to push the boundaries, the RME HDSPe MADI FX card can connect to twelve A16 MK-II's for a staggering 192 analogue I/O!
On top of this, the A16 MK-II is equipped with two high-resolution TFT screens displaying level meters and clock status, as well as a straightforward front panel menu with input gain, output trim, routing and clock options. Comprehensive remote control software is also available that allows you to configure all these parameters over a MIDI or MIDI-over-MADI connection.
All these features open up a whole host of possibilities. MADI optical cables can be run for up to 2 km between devices and, using the MIDI-over-MADI technology, carry all the necessary control data to adjust the A16 MK-II's internal settings from a remote computer equipped with a MADI interface. You could have an A16 MK-II located in the roof of a theatre, on stage, or simply in your live room – connected with a light and inexpensive MADI fibre cable. Cut down on expensive copper cables and ensure that your converters are as close to the sound source as possible.
