Product Description for the Antelope Audio Orion Studio

12 Mic Pres, AD/DA, Thunderbolt and USB Interface with AFC TM cliocking technology

Orion Studio is the second addition to Antelope’s family of Thunderbolt audio interfaces, employing 12 pristine, class-A mic pres, stunning AD/DA conversion as well as extended usability and functionality. Orion Studio’s conversion is empowered by Antelope’s acclaimed 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. The multiple zero-latency mixers with onboard DSP effects turn Orion Studio into a centerpiece for any studio or live show environment.

Extensive Flexibility and Productivity

With 32 channels via Thunderbolt and 24 on USB, Orion Studio allows for fast and ultra-low latency connection either with Mac or PC, and therefore with any DAW in your home or commercial studio. The variety of digital and analog I/O together with the flexible routing matrix provide amazing functionality and easy interconnection among various outboard gear. Orion Studio offers two pairs of monitoring outputs, 16 analog outs, 2 reamp outputs, as well as 16 channels I/O via ADAT and 2 channels I/O via S/PDIF.

Custom DSP Effects and Zero Latency Monitoring

Orion Studio uses Antelope’s battle-tested DSP, based on a custom FPGA with massive parallel processing capabilities. Orion Studio’s DSP chip is eight times more powerful than the ones in similar devices due to the proprietary FPGA. This allows fast and easy simultaneous processing of multiple effects such as EQ, compressor and reverb, enhancing the workflow like no other device on the market. The instant application of the effects to the various mixers provides zero-latency monitoring of the processed signal both to the producer and the artists.

Convenient Software Control

Orion Studio is fully controllable using a user-friendly desktop application with color-coded signal routing. The applet is compatible with both Windows and OS X. Utilizing the control panel, the engineer can create up to four independent, zero-latency mixes assignable to any outputs, including the two independent headphone outputs and the two pairs of monitor outputs. In addition to the extreme flexibility the control panel provides the handy option of storing up to 5 presets for fast recall of the most common recording or mixing scenarios.
