Antelope Audio Discrete 4 Pro Synergy Core USB/Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface

True pro sound in a desktop interface! You get 4 transparent preamps, 14x20 I/O, upgraded converters, 37 Antelope AFX, and Synergy Core FGPA+DSP to run them.

The Antelope Discrete 4 Pro Synergy Core is designed for stellar recordings at home and in the studio. It features industry-leading sound quality made possible by Antelope Audio's latest generation AD/DA converters and transparent preamps. This desktop-format audio interface embodies Antelope's zero-compromise approach to hardware, and the intuitive software control panel helps you streamline your sessions.

- Professional sound quality:
The quality A-D/D-A converters and clocking are the mainstay of any professional-sounding audio recording. The Discrete 4 Pro has been upgraded with latest generation converters reaching up to 130dB of headroom on the monitor DAC. As with all of Antelope Audio's current generation interfaces, the proprietary 64-bit AFC clocking provides a high level of detail in your recordings and exceptional stereo image in audio playback.

- Transparent is always better:
Antelope Audio's discrete preamp technology is a product of an extensive study of the greatest console preamps in recording history. Designed with a unique 6-transistor topology, the Discrete preamps result in maximum noise reduction and, most importantly, precise sound capture for most transparent recordings.

- Advanced features for creative sessions:
The virtual routing patch-bay on the Discrete 4 Pro streamlines the routing process, allowing you to route any signal source to any output. Apart from the intuitive routing, the software control panel allows you to create presets, quickly read more configure mixes with 4 fully independent 32-channel virtual mixers, and more.

With the enhanced processing, you can now add effects on any input source. Create different versions of the same recording with unique effect chains, print them all simultaneously, and even send them to all performers via the four independent headphone outputs. You want to keep everyone in the band happy, right?

- Connectivity options of a rack-mount interface:
The Discrete 4 Pro SC packs rich connectivity in a small package. Four mic/line inputs, two instrument inputs, four DC-coupled line outputs, a pair of monitor outputs, four headphone outputs, ADAT and S/PDIF I/O are at your disposal. For your computer connection, you have USB 2.0 & Thunderbolt 3 ports. All I/O is available at any time and can be used simultaneously.

- Give spice to your recordings:
The 37 effects included with Discrete 4 Pro are modeled after iconic studio equipment and can be applied in real-time. The extremely low latency is guaranteed by the option to monitor directly through the interface during tracking and recording. All analog-modeled compressors, EQs and preamps, are processed entirely inside the interface, putting zero load on your host CPU. The onboard Synergy Core processing power enables you to load effects on up to 16 channel strips this is 4 times as many as the original Discrete 4 SC.

At any time, you can expand your collection by purchasing more analog-modeled effects such as Grove Hill's Liverpool, and 3rd party effects like Antares' Auto-Tune.


- Class-leading AD/DA conversion with up to 130dB of headroom.
- Recording, mixing and playback at up to 24-bit/192kHz.
- Proprietary 64-bit AFC (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology & Jitter Management algorithm delivering increased sound width, separation, and detail.
- 4 Discrete 6-transistor preamps with 65dB of gain for pristine recordings. All work as microphone/line and two are also Hi-Z inputs.
