Antelope Audio announced that its Zen Tour and Goliath multi-channel interfaces are both shipping and available through the company’s dealer networks around the world.
Zen Tour is a portable recording interface, with (8) analog inputs and (16) analog outputs in a compact tabletop form factor. Meanwhile, Goliath offers (36) analog inputs and (32) analog outputs, (16) Class-A microphone preamplifiers as well as supporting Thunderbolt, custom USB and MADI.
Both units feature Antelope’s proprietary FPGA effects engine and come pre-loaded with dozens of FX and amplifier simulations.
The unit’s versatility is achieved with (2) balanced monitor output pairs, (8) line outputs (on D-Sub), (2) independent stereo headphone outputs and (2) mono preamp outputs. The unit’s digital I/O is accessible via ADAT and S/PDIF connectivity, raising its total channel count to (32) via Thunderbolt and (24) via its custom USB protocol. Zen Tour, which is available now at $1,495 USD, ships with FPGA-based audio effects, including classic guitar amps and cabinets, reverbs, compressors and EQs.
In addition to its conversion and connectivity specifications, Goliath also features (4) instrument DIs and (2) transformer preamp outputs on the front. Its (24) line level outputs and (16) line inputs — all on DB25 connectors — makes it ideal for tasks requiring hardware inputs or summing.
Shipping now at $4,995 USD, Goliath also features Antelope’s FPGA engine so users can access a continually updated array of hardware-based vintage audio effects, guitar and amp simulations, EQs, compressors and Antelope’s very own AuraVerb reverb unit.
