Antelope Audio announces the latest addition to the Zen Studio family of recording interfaces: Zen Studio+.
The new interface will make its debut at the Antelope Audio booth at the Pro Light + Sound Guangzhou convention [Booth A66, hall 5.2], which takes place between February 22nd and 25th.
Incorporating 12 studio quality built-in microphone preamps and extensive I/O, Zen Studio+ adds Thunderbolt connectivity and a range of hardware-based Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) effects.
“When Antelope released the original Zen Studio, the company redefined what was possible with a portable interface in terms of both audio quality and I/O count,” says Igor Levin, C.E.O. of Antelope Audio. “Zen Studio+ takes things into a new realm by adding Thunderbolt and incorporating Antelope’s amazing FPGA hardware effects modeling. These things make Zen Studio+ the ultimate next-generation tool for recording anywhere the sound carries you. Antelope debuts this exciting new product at Pro Light + Sound Guangzhou this month.”
Zen Studio+ includes features like a pair each of dedicated re-amp outputs, headphone outputs, and mastering quality monitor outputs. With its 12 preamps, including hi-Z and line inputs, and an additional eight inputs and outputs on DB25, the unit is further extensible via ADAT or S/PDIF. Therefore Zen Studio+ is well equipped for multi-mic recording setups anywhere at any time, and allowing set up of extra room mics to capture sound in just about any environment.
A customizable routing matrix helps establish the right signal flow for the way that you work and makes incorporating outboard hardware and FPGA FX easy. A built in talkback capability enables full control room capability at home or in the studio.
Zen Studio+ packs vintage outboard gear into its travel-friendly chassis, thanks to Antelope Audio’s Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology. These hardware-based effects allow near-zero latency processing of audio using detailed emulations of classic EQs, compressors, guitar amplifiers and more: all without taxing your laptop’s system resources.
Antelope Audio continues to expand its hardware downloads, and now boasts a library of over 30 unique effects — each carefully modeled from the most coveted pieces of studio gear in recording history.
