Thank you for purchasing the M-32 AD Pro.
The M-32 AD Pro is a versatile multichannel format converter with exceptional audio quality across each of its channels. State-of-the art components from audiophile grade converters have been carefully aligned to fit into a compact, 1 HU 19" rack device.
The device was designed to use the entire front for visual feedback on its state and configuration. A display with encoder allows to perform all configurations directly at the device. Thirty-two custom-inscribable labeling fields with backlight in shades of green, yellow, and red indicate the current signal level.
Each analog channel can be individually adjusted to three different sensitivities that are perfectly matched to the converter’s range. While this is usually implemented with digital 'trims', the M-32 AD Pro does the adjustment in the analog domain, ensuring that the converter’s signal to noise ratio is not reduced when adapting to common line levels.
Digital audio can be received, routed, and sent over MADI and AVB. While MADI remains the de-facto standard of point-to-point audio transmission, AVB has been chosen as a robust network solution based on open standards. It allows simultaneous transmission of all 32 analog channels at 192 kHz sampling frequency over a single network cable.
Various remote control protocols allow the device to be configured seamlessly via MIDI over MADI, MIDI, IEEE 1722.1 AVDECC, JSON OSC, and a web interface accessible by network or USB connection with a browser.
