Antelope Audio announces availability of Orion Studio Rev. 2017 and accepts Goliath HD preorders

Having blown musical minds with their asynchronous April announcement at Musikmesse 2017 in Frankfurt, Germany, high-end professional audio equipment manufacturer Antelope Audio is proud to announce availability of Orion Studio Rev. 2017 — a timely revision of its innovative and popular professional audio interface, boasting brand-new A/D (analogue-to-digital) convertors to deliver an unparalleled 124dB dynamic range, while working with the company’s growing library of freely downloadable hardware-based FPGA (Field Programmable Array) effects to access hardware models of many desirable vintage units with real-time performance without relying on DSP or native processing — as well as accepting preorders on its industry-shaking Goliath HD flagship.

Externally, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is immediately distinguishable from its popular predecessor, courtesy of an eye-catching carbon grey-coloured faceplate. But behind the mask internal innovations abound as it continues its predecessor’s penchant for extensive connectivity and best-in-class performance, including 12 superb-sounding, adaptable Accusonic preamps (comfortably accommodating complex multi-microphone setups) and 16 analogue outputs (providing an abundance of signal distribution capacity for outboard gear integration or summing). Dual mastering-grade monitor outputs maintain signal integrity all the way to the monitoring stage (also allowing switching between two pairs of speakers), while those all-new A/D conversion chips translate to capturing every sonic nuance of a performance as faithfully as possible. Pooled with Antelope Audio’s acclaimed 64-bit ATC (Acoustically Focused Clocking) jitter-management technology, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is poised to implement industry-leading fidelity in almost any application.

As a direct result of Antelope Audio adding several new compressors to its growing library of freely downloadable hardware- based FPGA effects, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 allows for simultaneous usage of up to 32 compressors — and all without sacrificing the 40 EQ instances on offer. These ultra-realistic effects are handled within the interface itself — ideal for tracking or mixing, so do not tax the host DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) system, but instead inflate sonic palettes somewhat considerably compared to the competition.

Controlled via a desktop application for Mac or PC, Antelope Audio’s advanced session preset and routing software serves up complete control of signal flow, permitting powerful effects chains, faithful monitor mixes, and easy integration of outboard hardware. Helpfully, the new Matrix View available to Orion Studio Rev. 2017 (and all of Antelope Audio’s Thunderbolt HDX- compatible audio interfaces) offers an accurate and alluring alternative to the company’s classic drag-and-drop interface alongside a new Session Presets application for full session saving functionality, allowing anyone already taking full advantage of their incredibly versatile routing, mixing, and hardware effects modelling capabilities to save, load, and share any routing, mixing, effects, mic pre gain levels, input and output trims, and even pan or resize settings.

Shipping now, and available to purchase through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of dealers with an MSRP of €2,595.00 EUR, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 punches well above its asking price.

Pushing ever onwards and upwards, Antelope Audio is also accepting preorders on Orion Studio Rev. 2017’s bigger brother, Goliath HD. Weighing in at €6,995.00 EUR, this heavyweight professional audio interface is the culmination of years of research and development, and will soon serve as a powerhouse centrepiece for the modern recording studio with 64 channels of highest- quality audio I/O and an abundance of powerful upgrades, including new adaptable Accusonic preamps alongside a full suite of hardware-based FPGA effects and much more besides… best start saving to make some studio space for some seriously high- end professional audio equipment!

 

Shipping now, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is available to purchase through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of dealers with an MSRP of €2,595.00 EUR.
