The front-panel 1/4" headphone output features digitally controlled volume and an assignable mono or stereo source.

BNC jacks provide wordclock I/O for proper synchronization with other digital equipment such as master-clock generators, additional converters, and digital consoles. Remote control of the Pulse16 MX is possible through the MIDI 5-pin ports, which also support MIDI-over-MADI embedding and extracting. Display and modification of device settings, meters, and routing are achieved via the dual color TFT screens and three front-panel controls. The Pulse16 MX includes an external power supply and a MADI cable.
