Sonically Accurate USB Condenser Microphone

Axino Synergy Core is a large-diaphragm microphone designed to record the natural character and resonance of instruments and vocalists in great detail. The large gold-sputtered membrane offers low self-noise, while the cardioid pickup pattern minimizes background noise, enabling the microphone to capture any sound effortlessly. A hybrid amp design featuring Antelope Audio's renowned Discrete preamp technology has been implemented to achieve a transparent, uncolored sound.

Your Own Virtual Mic Locker

The Axino Synergy Core uses Antelope Audio's microphone Modeling Engine, which allows you to record with virtual recreations of classic microphones. It comes with 18 emulations of dynamic, tube, and FET condenser microphones to record and monitor in real-time. This system grants flexible workflow and the opportunity to read more experiment with different mic emulations to find the perfect sound. Antelope mic emulations may also be used as native DAW plugins, with iLok 2 or 3 required.

Fully Optimized Audio Interface for Professional Results

The same cutting-edge technology from Antelope Audio's top audio interfaces also powers the Axino Synergy Core. The combination of precise 64-bit AFC clocking and leading AD/DA conversion yields pristine audio quality at resolutions up to 24-bit / 192 kHz. To ensure high-fidelity audio reproduction, the headphone output has been equipped with a DAC chip delivering 124dB of headroom.
