Antelope Audio [NAMM Hall A - Booth 6596] has announced the latest addition to its Orion series of audio interfaces: Orion32 HD.
Delivering 64 channels via HDX or USB3, the Orion32 HD is compatible with any DAW on the market, making it an option for users of both Pro Tools and Native systems.
Further, it also delivers Antelope Audio’s clocking technology and Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) realtime effects modeling capabilities.
Marcel James, director of U.S. sales for Antelope Audio says, “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 Native’s 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.”
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 routing and mixing software console for Mac and Windows further increases the possibilities, now featuring both Antelope’s color-coded routing matrix and an alternate matrix-style view to make routing easy and intuitive.
It 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 and windows. The Orion32 HD also offers 64-BIT Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology.
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 10M or 10MX atomic clocks. The Orion32 HD also features mastering-grade monitor output borrowed from Antelope’s Pure2 Mastering Converter.
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.
The Orion32 HD has no need for an internal fan and only requires a single rack space for space-conscious home and project studios as well as gear-saturated professional studios.
