Antelope Audio Orion Studio
Packed in only 1U rackspace, Orion Studio delivers a heavyweight feature set: the fastest AD/DA chip set on the market, in combination with Thunderbolt(TM) and USB compatibility, incredible routing flexibility and Antelope Audio's renowned sonic depth and clarity.
Hear what the pros are saying about the Orion Studio in this video from Antelope:
Despite its diminutive size, Orion Studio is a professional tool designed and built without compromise. Throughout the Thunderbolt and USB connectivity, Orion Studio is able to simultaneously process 32 I/O of 192 kHz audio at dizzying speeds of 100uS round trip delay, making it the fastest AD/DA converter in its class. Further, Orion Studio features 12 extremely transparent microphone preamplifiers with phantom power, 16 analog outputs and a pair of mastering-grade monitor outputs, two hardware inserts, two re-amps and a talkback mic.
"Orion Studio brings the ultimate in flexibility and sonic integrity to a demanding new generation of recording engineers and musicians," commented Igor Levin, CEO and Founder of Antelope Audio. "With its blazing speed, flexible signal routing and sonic purity, Orion Studio levels the playing field for musicians and engineers who want to achieve uncompromising results while taking up a relatively compact physical footprint."
In addition to featuring Thunderbolt(TM) and USB compatibility, Orion Studio also includes Antelope's powerful FPGA-based DSP engine, which is optimized to run custom EQ, compressor and reverb effects. Over 25 FPGA effects, as well as other forthcoming effects on which the company is currently working are included at no additional cost.
Orion Studio's lightning fast conversion capability enables users to take advantage of realtime effects during the recording and mixing process. For example, Orion Studio's re-amping feature -- which routes signals through a pair of real transformers -- is ideal for musicians, who can access and manipulate a host of authentic sound effects while monitoring in real time.
Flexible Signal Routing and Mixing Capabilities
Orion Studio is totally controllable via a user-friendly desktop applet available for both OS X and Windows operating systems. The control panel builds on the logic and flexibility of Zen Studio's panel, allowing for easy color-coded routing and creation of four separate mixers with custom DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. Five user-configurable presets enhance engineers' productivity, providing fast and easy recall of favorite settings. Orion Studio's clocking accuracy is provided by Antelope's superior 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, which is present in all Antelope's flagship clocks and converters.
Antelope Audio's FPGA Platform: The New Breed of Hardware-Based Audio EffectsMassive hardware modeling capabilities
Already leaders in the field of digital audio clocking Antelope Audio is now on a mission to revolutionize the world of digital audio interfaces. Antelope's custom Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) platform not only guarantees the lowest sound latency on the market when creating and streaming multiple mixes, but provides our devices with massive hardware modeling capabilities.
Forget about expensive effects
They often sound flat and soulless and can be quite a pain to your computer. Antelope's FPGA effects bring audio realism to a new level. They sound, behave and feel just like real hardware gear, because they ARE real hardware gear.
Antelope Audio interfaces feature this new breed of powerful hardware-based audio effects. These include Antelope’s very own enhanced versions of legendary studio gear, vintage and contemporary guitar amps & cabs simulations developed in collaboration with Overloud.
