Antelope Audio has announced the third generation of the Orion 32+ AD/DA converter. It is capable of achieving up to 129 dB dynamic range alongside Antelope’s next-generation 64-bit AFC (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology and jitter management algorithm.
Antelope said it comes with a collection of circuit-level gear emulations running in real-time on an integrated FPGA FX platform.
Offering low-latency recording and playback of up to 64 simultaneous 24-bit/192kHz audio channels via Thunderbolt and up to 32 audio channels over USB, Antelope’s latest addition to its expanding range of interfaces connects with any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) on a Mac or PC.
The unit has a color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining and zero-latency monitoring capabilities all residing within an application for macOS and Windows. All selections are viewable in the center of the routing matrix when hovering over a connection.
Orion 32+|Gen 3 comes complete with a complimentary suite of effects essentials, each running in real-time on a FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) platform. Each effect brings mastering-grade precision and clarity to the production table. It offers all essential mixing and mastering needs, from the Clear Q linear EQ to the advanced AuraVerb.
