"Orion Studio Synergy Core Game Changer!"
Going On my 3rd Orion Studio- This new Orion Studio Synergy Core is a game changer imho... between 50 free EPIC sounding plugins that comes with this interface, including all the EPIC Vintage plugins and now the AFX2DAW which yes you do have to buy this separately and yes I had one problem that Antelope Audio tech support quickly fixed. Using a Mac in case anyone is wondering. You breakdown all the specs this Synergy Core comes with compared to whomever UAD, Apogee etc... and all the FREE EPIC plugins! Antelope Audio hands down is the best bang for your money. Don't forget unless you already know. Antelope Audio is renown for the best clocking in the world hands down. Crucial in todays digital recording world. I’m writing this review to whom ever is on the fence because of hearing about Antelopes poor tech support, and of course really want to know how good is this interface compared to all the choice out there on the market. Yes When I got their 1st Orion Studio, which I loved because it allowed me 16 channels for summing capabilities over the UAD I had with only 8 channels, and costs about the same in price!! Yes from the start with Antelope they were definitely lacking, with limited tech support that at times was very frustrating plus the company is out of Bulgaria. But Antelope listened to its buyers and now offers outstanding tech support! Twenty hours a day M-F!! Whether you need phone, chatline, or email, or remote control assistance, Antelope Audio stepped up their read more game and provides all of this tech support now. If you’re looking for an interface that’s truly a professional sounding interface with way more bang for your bucks like I said above. Take the time to compare all specs and free plugins and you will hear for yourself Antelope Audio is the only choice.Ok whatever you end up choosing go make the greatest new music! It’s time don’t you all think?!Peace
