Antelope Audio Orion Studio Thunderbolt & USB Audio Interface with 12 Microphone Preamps

Thunderbolt and USB AD/DA Audio Interface with 12 Microphone Preamps
Part No: ANTELOPE-ORIONSTUDIO

Orion Studio is without a doubt a star in Antelope Audio’s new line of Thunderbolt & USB audio interfaces. Its 12 Class-A Mic Pres make it the one and only piece of gear you’ll need to record a full band and do it like a pro. Just like Zen Tour and Goliath, Orion Studio features our FPGA powered, hardware-based vintage FX, making it the top choice for professional guitarists on the quest for crafting the perfect tone. This best-selling interface also includes Antelope’s traditionally stunning AD/DA conversion, powered by our very own, world-renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology for jitter management.

Product Description

Details

Among Antelope Audio’s new line of Thunderbolt & USB audio interfaces the Orion Studio is without a doubt the shining star. Its 12 Class-A Mic Pres make it the solitary piece of gear a user needs to record a full band as if they were in any professional studio. The Antelope Orion Studio features an FPGA powered, hardware-based vintage FX, making it the first choice for professional guitarists on a mission to sculpt the perfect tone. The best-selling interface also incorporates Antelope’s conventionally striking AD/DA conversion, powered by its very own, world-renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology for jitter management.

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 Studio 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 Studio’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 Studio 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.
