Antelope Audio Discrete 4 USB Interface

Antelope Audio's Discrete 4 Microphone Preamp comes with 4 console-grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock-solid clocking. Discrete 4 features the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX modeling iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and FET.

Discrete 4 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, now accessible in any DAW thanks to the Antelope AFX2DAW Plugin.

Discrete 4 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine transforms its already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into several classic units. It all happens in real-time and with authentic responsiveness. Discrete 4 was designed to work with any microphone. It really shines with Antelope Audio Edge and Verge mics. These were designed to exclusively match the discrete preamp architecture of the interface.

Works with Antelope's Verge and Edge Modeling Microphones

With the Discrete 4's FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine, you can transform both the Antelope Edge large-diaphragm condenser and the Antelope Verge large-diaphragm condenser into vintage microphone replicas, giving you complete control over proximity effect -- and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphone models, and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician's best possible performance.

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience -- Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 4 control panel or in your preferred DAW via the AFX2DAW Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 4 ReAmp outputs will allow you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Like all things Antelope Audio, Discrete 4 is a rock-solid clocking solution itself. It comes packed with the 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology you already know from Antelope classics like Trinity, OCX HD and Pure2. Three Word Clock outputs allow you to distribute clock signal to your other digital gear.

Monitoring and Talkback features in Discrete 4 are super flexible and a breeze to set up. Create up to 4 individual monitoring mixes. Send them to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without the FPGA FX you've stacked. Vintage EQ, Compression and authentic guitar amp emulations allow recording artists to experience convincing sound, which is as close to the final product as possible.

With Discrete 4 users can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with all Antelope Audio FPGA-equipped interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other devices and users.

The free to download Discrete 4 remote App allows you to adjust all microphone input levels. It grants you full control over the Talkback levels, Monitoring and Headphone volumes. Musicians can now control their own headphone volume through their smartphones.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
