Twice the number of I/O channels of our Pulse16 converter and a lot of new professional features – the A32 has everything it takes to become the new centerpiece of a studio, live-rig or OB van.
32×32 analog inputs and outputs are completed with 32×32 ADAT I/O channels (ADAT4 can be switched to S/PDIF), a headphone output, optical and coaxial MADI I/O, redundant power inputs and four high res TFT color displays.
MADI & ADAT – always the best connection.
Perfect Connections: MADI and ADAT
The MADI connection enables a transfer of up to 64×64 audio channels over coaxial or optical fibre cable over a distance of up to 2000 m.
Thanks to MIDI-over-MADI the device can be remote controlled over that huge distance without the need for a separate remote connection.
Adding the ADAT I/Os to the 32 analog I/O, you get the full channel count of 64 inputs and 64 outputs over a single MADI cable connection.
Easy Control and Routing
Also the A32 offers a sophisticated routing matrix of all inputs and outputs. A powerful SHARC® DSP from Analog Devices offers enough processing power for all 258 audio channels.
The headphone output can monitor every single mono, stereo or even a submix signal; switching between them in no time at all.
Last but not least the four hi-res TFT color screens offer a full overview at any time.

Redundant power inputs
SONTRONICS Orpheus [EX_DEMO]
Since ORPHEUS was introduced (it formed part of Sontronics' initial range of mics for our launch back in 2005), it has become a favourite with live sound engineers for drum overheads (when used in pairs) and has also becomeextremely popular in the voiceover community, thanks to the fact that it delivers crisp, classy results on male and female spoken word.
The three polar patterns also mean thatORPHEUS is fantastically versatilewhen it comes to recording groups and ensembles (in omni mode), for use in mid-side and other experimental applications (in figure-of-eight mode) or even for foley and sound effects work
SONTRONICS - Aria [EX-DEMO]
Housed inside the chromed grille is a large, 1.07-inch, edge-terminated capsule that captures all the detail and subtleties of any male or female vocal (sung or spoken) while the hand-selected European 12AX7/ECC83 tube lends a character that you'd expect to find in a classic vintage valve mic.
For that extra level of control, the accompanying SPS-2 power supply unit boastspad (0, -10dB) and filter (linear, 75Hz) switches as well as a tube-ready LED, letting you know when the mic is warmed up and at its best to record. Inside the unit is a pro-quality, medical-grade electricity filter to ensure that the power supply is pure and interference-free.
SONTONICS - Mercury [EX-DEMO]
Designed by Sontronics' founder Trevor Coley, anddeveloped alongside top artists and producers as well as with the input of engineers at Abbey Road Studios, the MERCURY is hand-built here in the UK Sontronics HQ.
The MERCURY gives you aninfinite choice of polar patterns from omnidirectional to figure-of-eight and everything in between, controlled via the sweepable control knob on the front of the power supply.
The mic also has pad (0, -10dB) and low-cut filter (linear, 75Hz) controls and a professional power supply with medical-grade interference filter, and it boasts incredibly low self-noise for a valve microphone (less than 12dB, A-weighted), making this amust-have microphone for any studio serious about achieving the best quality results
RME MADIface XT [USED]
RME's MADIface XT is the world's first USB3 audio interface - and the world's smallest portable interface that provides access to hundreds of audio channels in such a small package.
The RME MADIface XT is capable of transferring digital audio data directly into a computer, from any device equipped with a MADI interface. Analog sources can be connected to a stereo analog input, and 2 stereo analog outputs add full monitoring connectivity. Installation is simple, even for the inexperienced user, thanks to the latest Plug and Play technology. The numerous unique features and well thought-out configuration dialogs put the MADIface XT at the very top of the range of digital audio interfaces.
The front of the MADIface XT has 2 XLR/TRS line and microphone inputs, a stereo line/headphone output, two rotary encoders with push functionality, four menu keys, a graphical colour display, and six status LEDs.
The Neutrik combo sockets of the two Mic/Line inputs provide XLR and 6.3 mm / 1/4" TRS connection. They have LEDs for Signal (SIG), Overload (Clip) and phantom power (48V).
Channels 3/4 feed the headphone output, which also operates as high-quality unbalanced line output.
The display main screen (Global Level Meters) shows the current state of interface mode (PCIe orange, USB 2 yellow, USB 3 blue), the sync state of MADI and AES inputs, and incoming and outgoing MIDI data.
