Antelope Audio Releases Orion 32HD | Gen 3 Interface

Features AD/DA conversion, comprehensive connectivity, low-latency monitoring, and 64-channel 24-bit/192 kHz audio streaming.

Antelope Audio follows up on last month’s Orion 32+ | Gen 3 availability announcement at the 2019 NAMM Show by shipping its Orion 32HD | Gen 3 sibling.

Compatible with any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) via HDX or USB 3.0, this new Pro Tools HD- and Native-ready audio interface features AD/DA conversion, comprehensive connectivity, low-latency monitoring, and 64-channel 24-bit/192 kHz audio streaming.

This third-generation interface offers Antelope Audio’s AD/DA, boosted to reach 136dB of dynamic range. The Orion 32HD | Gen 3 enables streaming hi-res audio though a rear panel-positioned USB 3.0 Type B connector (offering 64 channels of I/O at up to 192 kHz) and also two mini HDX connectors for direct Pro Tools connection (each offering 32 channels of I/O, totaling 64 channels).

Further flexibility abounds as digital I/O is also available over fiber optic MADI (IN and OUT — up to 64 channels each), two ADAT (IN 1 and IN 2, and OUT 1 and OUT 2 — both with up to 64 channels), and S/PDIF (IN and OUT) connections. Orion 32HD | Gen 3 not only enables users to stream 64 channels of audio when tracking, but also allows for multiple monitor mixes.

Orion 32HD | Gen 3 is equally well connected for analog audio, courtesy of four D-SUB 25 connectors catering to 32 channels of ANALOG IN and four D-SUB 25 connectors catering to 32 channels of ANALOG OUT, plus two MONITOR outputs on 1/4-inch TRS jacks.

Orion 32HD | Gen 3 comes complete with a collection of circuit-level gear emulations, running in real-time on an integrated FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) platform. Plucked from Antelope Audio’s fast-growing FPGA FX library, these include 20 classic equalizers; 13 vintage and modern compressors; and several useful utility effects, including the AuraVerb.

Orion 32HD | Gen 3 offers a color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and low-latency monitoring. All are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.

Orion 32HD | Gen 3 is now available for purchase — priced at an RRP of $3,995.00 USD — through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of authorized dealers.
