Antelope Audio Orion32+ Gen 3 Interface

The Orion 32+'s proven flexibility and exemplary sound quality have been expanded even further with upgraded, industry-leading conversion and a major facelift. Like its predecessor, the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 stands ready to take over studios and live shows across the globe once again.

Explore Vintage Studio Equipment

The Orion 32+ | Gen 3 includes a complimentary suite of superb real-time effects selected from a growing library of Antelope Audio FPGA FX. Additional effects can be purchased to expand your arsenal of FX. Customers can invest in the AFX2DAW software bridge which lets them use on-board processed, low-latency effects as inserts in their preferred digital audio workstation.

64-Channels of Audio Via Thunderbolt

Orion 32+ | Gen 3 provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, with low-latency, simultaneous streaming of 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via Thunderbolt and 32 channels via USB. The analog I/O are handled by 8 DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for monitoring. Digital connectivity options are complemented by ADAT and S/PDIF.

Extensive Flexibility

Orion 32+ | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity. A color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero latency monitoring is provided. The routing matrix, mixers, and control panel are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.

High-End Clocking & Conversion

Digital clarity meets analog musicality to form the signature Antelope Audio sound. Antelope's proven clocking accuracy is ensured by their renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. A 10 MHz input enables connectivity to Antelope's legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX. That, and a pair of word clock outputs make the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 a great fit in any setup - not just as an interface, but as a premium master clock as well.

Redesigned Software Panel

Control all Orion 32+ | Gen 3 features and functionality from its intuitive desktop app. macOS and Windows compatible, it implements Antelope Audio's networking control concept to let you access the interface from multiple computers in the same network. For added convenience and flexibility, the control panels are freely movable and resizable, facilitating multi-screen workflows.

zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Overall: I bought this a few weeks back on zZounds' great 12 pay deal.This is a great interface. It sounds terrific, and is very very flexible. I'm running it madi to/from the daw, with two extra adat interfaces plugged into for 48 I/O to my console. I also have the 2 buss from the console A/D running Spdif into the Orion, and 2 more channels setup from the computer sounds out to the monitor outs on the Orion. I monitor my mix direct from my console, and can quickly switch to the output from the daw mix buss if I prefer.The metering flexibility is a real time saver. You can pull any input or outputs up on the two banks of meters in the app, and you can assign the first choice to the meters on the device. The metering really helps you troubleshoot your wiring :)

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.
