Product Description

Details

Goliath HD is a 64-Channel interface that can be used with Pro Tools HD or Native DAWs via second generation Thunderbolt, USB 3.0 or via two MADI connections, which are compatible with MADI to Dante Bridge products. Coming with extensive I/O options, featuring 16 Accusonic mic preamps with individual volume controls, 32 analogue ins with 124dB of Dynamic Range, 32 analogue outs with 129dB of Dynamic Range, plus mastering grade monitor outputs, featuring new technology that boosts dynamic range to a spectacular 132dB.

Developed in collaboration with Overloud, Antelope Audio bring precision and audio realism to a whole new level. This mixture means that artists can experiment with multiple speaker configurations, mic placement and EQ settings. Pioneering RealModel technology allows the Orion Goliath HD to vibrantly reconstruct the exact resonance and modality of classic analogue gear. The custom FPGA makes it the number one audio interface for professional guitarists because it is the perfect platform for integrated vintage and contemporary guitar amp and cab simulations.

The tremendously potent Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device is the Antelope Orion Goliath HD’s secret weapon. Its colossal parallel processing competencies are far ahead of DSP chips used in comparable devices. Through smart algorithms, oversampling and custom-tweaked models the FPGA provides the deepest latency possible, allowing you to create up to four independent, zero latency mixes.

Orion Goliath HD is compatible with any DAW on the market. The FPGA powered Thunderbolt and custom USB guarantee the lowest sound latency on the market. Massive parallel processing capabilities deliver rapid, synchronised streaming of multiple audio channels and immediate effects processing. The device is effortlessly connected to assorted outboard equipment, thanks to the variety of digital and analogue I/O, combined with the flexible routing matrix.
