"Orion 32+ Gen 3... Just do it."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
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 :)

"Antelope Audio Orion32+ Gen 3 Interface"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I’ve had my eye on the Orion pretty much from the first inception of the interface. The amount of I/O it housed was simply staggering. Fast forward several years later and ultimately once they developed TB drivers for windows machines. I knew it was finally time to dive in.I built a PC specifically for use with this box. After doing my research, (yes people, please do your research on what is compatible) The motherboard I went with was Gigabytes Z390 Designare. For the helluva of it, I dropped in a i9-9900k too. Might as well have some major horse power behind it as well. With the motherboard’s TB drivers and Antelope’s TB drivers along with a startech TB2 to TB3 converter. Installation was absolutely flawless! Fully plug and play. Just make certain to grant your thunderbolt port/device the required permissions to use the Antelope. After several weeks of owning the interface. I ‘m pretty much convinced the heartburn people have had with Antelope’s windows drivers is 98.9% operator error. The Orion 32+ gen 3 has been rock solid on a windows build. The flexibility of the I/O routing is in a class of its own. Any configuration you need is right at your fingertips Coupled with world glass conversion and the absolute lowest of latency. This interface actually inspires creativity.

"Orion Studio 32 +"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I am enjoying the Antelope Orion 32+, the sonic quality, clarity and head room are second to none. First I ordered the duo mic and MP package, then the Orion 32+. After wanting more of the Antelope goodness I just ordered the Discrete 8 to add to my studio. After being into music production for four decades, I think Antelope offers some of the best bang for the buck in the industry. Also some of the best Plug-in emulation which uses the DSP chip in there units not your CPU. All I can say is Happy, Happy Happy. Regards,Aaron Brown

"Fantastic Converter"
This converter is the center of my home studio and mobile recording rig. I can easily transfer it between my desk and road case. 32 analog in/out in a 1 rack unit footprint is a dream. This is the kind of converter that a studio can grow into. The audio quality is amazing I personally love it and my clients dig it too. The FPGA effects sound great (the new synergy core stuff is awesome too!) Antelope as a company is fantastic too, pushing boundaries, providing excellent support when you need it and delivering the absolute best bang for your buck!

"Current Favorite"
I’ve been using this interface for several weeks now, having previously owned a Orion HD 32. These interfaces are world class. I’ve done blind shootouts against current Avid hardware, apogee, and UA Apollo. Simply, Antelope holds its own and wins the shootout often. The top end clarity and wide soundstage are often noted.At any price, this in my favorite interface on the market. At THIS price for 32 io plus a dedicated monitor output? At THIS price with deep routing options previously unheard of? Buy.
