Product Description for the Antelope Audio Discrete 8

All-Star Technology & Performance

Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and obile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking.

Discrete 8 features all of Antelope Audio's premier real-time FPGA FX

Including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more. The Antelope AFX platform is a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which are now accessible in the DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Hardware-based Audio Effects

Massive 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. Our custom Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) 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. Our 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.

Orion Studio, Orion 32+, Zen Tour, Zen Studio, Goliath and Orion32 HD – all our audio interfaces – feature this new breed of powerful hardware-based audio effects. These include vintage and contemporary guitar amp & cab simulations developed in collaboration with Overloud, plus Antelope’s very own enhanced versions of legendary studio gear.

Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

Console-grade and fully Discrete Preamps offer world-class sound.

Discrete 8 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into a plethora of classic units real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.
