Antelope Audio Orion Studio - B-Stock

This B-stock Orion Studio Rev 2017 is in mint condition and provides you with a professional Thunderbolt/USB audio interface by Antelope Audio. This interface features 12 Class-A Mic Pres making it the only piece of gear you’ll need to record a full band at a professional level. Much like Antelope Audio’s Zen Tour and Goliath the Orion Studio features FPGA powered, hardware-based vintage FX allowing you to achieve the perfect tones for all your musicians needs. This beautiful interface also includes Antelope’s traditionally stunning AD/DA conversion, powered by their, world-renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology for jitter management.

With the Rev 2017 version of the Orion Studio you can now access not only legendary guitar amps and cabs, but a plethora of classic studio gear. Through a unique sampling technique for vintage gear modeling we have provided Orion Studio with the finest selection of hardware-quality audio effects, among which legendary EQ and compressor hardware plus our very own and extremely versatile AuraVerb reverb.

Orion Studio’s secret weapon is the extremely powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. Its massive parallel processing capabilities are far ahead of DSP chips used in similar devices. Through smart algorithms, oversampling and custom-tweaked models, the FPGA provides the lowest latency possible, allowing you to create up to four independent, zero latency mixes. This can be easily assigned to any output including the two separate headphone outs.

Antelope Audio’s custom FPGA makes Orion Studio the #1 audio interface for professional guitarists by being the perfect platform for Antelope's integrated vintage and contemporary guitar amp & cab simulations. Developed in collaboration with Overloud they bring precision and audio realism to a whole new level, allowing artists to experiment with multiple speaker configurations, mic placement and EQ settings. Antelope's innovative RealModel technology allows them to vividly rebuild the true sound and behaviour of classic analog gear.
