January 9th, 2016 — Antelope Audio [NAMM Hall A - Booth 6596], a leading interface company
specializing in world class clocking, conversion and FPGA-based vintage FX
modeling, has announced the latest addition to its acclaimed Orion series of
audio interfaces: Orion32 HD. Delivering 64 channels of stunning audio quality
via HDX or USB3, the Orion32 HD is compatible with any DAW on the market,
making it an excellent choice for users of both Pro Tools and Native systems.
Further, it also delivers Antelope Audio's superior clocking
technology and powerful Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) realtime effects
modeling capabilities that have made Antelope Audio interfaces stand apart from
“Antelope Audio is committed to raising possibilities and breaking
down boundaries with our interfaces," says Marcel James, Director of U.S.
Sales for Antelope Audio. "By bringing the potent combination of pristine
conversion and our versatile FPGA sound-shaping tools to both HDX and Native
systems, we are opening yet another chapter in our interface innovations.
Studios can now easily switch between Pro Tools HD Sessions and Natives DAW’s
to accommodate the modern laptop producer in a flash. We are very excited to
demonstrate these innovations first hand at this year's NAMM Show."
King of Connectivity
With HDX, USB3, MADI, and ADAT, and S/PDIF connectivity and
32-in/32-out analog input via DB25, the Orion32 HD has all the connectivity you
need for a wide variety of configurations in studios of all sizes. The Orion32
HD’s versatile routing and mixing software console for Mac and Windows further
increases the possibilities, now featuring both Antelope’s classic color-coded
routing matrix and an alternate matrix-style view to make routing easy and
intuitive. It also features movable and resizable panels to help make the best
use of your desktop real estate in multiscreen setups or when working on
scoring or other applications that require quickly jumping between applications
The Orion32 HD delivers incredibly clear, accurate conversion
thanks to Antelope’s best-in-class 64-BIT Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC)
jitter management technology. A long time innovator in the field, the Orion32
HD, like the OCX HD and Trinity master clock before it, achieves depth and
detail in stereo imaging and transient accuracy that ensures the most precise
audio capture and playback.
Two Word Clock or Loopsync Outs allow the Orion to serve as the
centerpiece of your recording setup, or take your sound even further by using
the Orion’s 10M/10MX Clock Inputs to connect Antelope Audio’s famous 10M or
10MX atomic clocks for unparalleled sonic perfection. The Orion32 HD also
features mastering-grade monitor output borrowed from Antelope’s popular Pure2
Mastering Converter to ensure signal integrity in the analog domain.
Antelope has been revolutionizing audio processing with its
comprehensive suite of FPGA effects, providing hardware models of some of the
most desirable vintage effects with near-zero latency. Antelope’s library of free
FPGA effects is constantly growing and already includes a deep collection of
equalizers, compressors, and guitar amplifier models based on analog gear used
on countless hit records. Antelope’s fast FPGA processing, which measures only
2 samples of audio latency, helps these effects feel and behave just like the
hardware they are based on, and also allows users to setup multiple near-zero
latency monitor mixes right within the Orion32 HD’s mixer. For a list of
available effects, please visit this link.
Designed for efficiency, the
Orion32 HD has no need for an internal fan, keeping your studio is free of
noise pollution without requiring expensive isolation racks or a standalone
machine room. The Orion32 HD also only requires a single rack space to deliver
its dizzying 64 channels of I/O, making it perfect for space-conscious home and
project studios as well as gear-saturated professional studios.
