Antelope Audio premieres world’s first bus-powered modelling mic and Gen 3 interfaces

Antelope Audio premieres world’s first bus-powered modelling mic and Gen 3 interfaces

2019 sees trailblazing pro audio manufacturer Antelope Audio firing on all cylinders with the worldwide premiere of three one-of-a-kind, industry-leading products — Edge Go, the world’s first bus-powered modeling microphone (enabling a complete studio experience with circuit-level mic and gear emulations onboard Antelope Audio’s real-time FPGA FX platform), alongside the cutting-edge Orion32+ | Gen 3 and Orion32 HD | Gen 3 flagship audio interfaces (offering unparalleled connectivity and unmatched conversion quality at expectations-defying prices).

Professional engineers tend to dismiss USB microphones as cheap, unimpressive products for beginners — and in many cases, they have a point. But what if it was possible to have the full, non-compromised fidelity of the Edge Duo multi-pattern large-diaphragm condenser mic (powered by a console-grade mic preamp, high- end AD converter, and signature Antelope Audio FPGA FX processing) packed into a premium bus-powered mic?

Meet the Edge Family of modelling microphones’s newest member! Edge Go is so much more than just another USB microphone —- it’s a complete recording studio experience housed in a mic! Connected via USB-C and equipped with a 3.5mm headphone jack for real-time monitoring, Edge Go achieves an entire processed vocal chain at the hardware level — and all in real-time. With a variety of high-end condenser mic models and a special selection of lifelike vintage compressor and EQ effects, plus built-in de-essing, gating/expansion, tape saturation, and reverb all controlled by an intuitive PC/Mac app, getting fully-finished recordings on the go has never been simpler. Saying that, a collection of channel strip presets, crafted by industry pros, makes it even easier to quickly achieve a sound that’s ready for radio, podcast, Twitch stream, or album. And it all comes straight off the Edge Go, with practically imperceptible latency.

Edge Go Features: Studio-grade large-diaphragm condenser microphone• Bus-powered over USB-C (USB Type-A compatible)• Accurately models the world’s finest studio condenser microphones• Switchable polar patterns (cardioid, figure 8, omni, and everything in between)• Latency-free monitoring and recording with onboard effects processing• High-end A/D conversion (24-bit / 192kHz)• Full frequency response: 20Hz – 20kHz• 3.5mm headphone jack for monitoring• Easy and intuitive software control panel• Presets by top studio professionals

The Orion32+ | Gen 3 brings the same incredible connectivity, flexibility, and channel counts to the production table that the original Orion32+ made its notable name with. But there’s even more to it now — elevated operating levels (+24dBu max), upgraded AD/DA conversion, ultra-fast and stable custom ThunderboltTM driver for Windows, and a major facelift. Just like its predecessor, the Orion32+ | Gen 3 stands ready to take over studios and live shows internationally. It will be available at an even more accessible starting price with a selection of real-time, FPGA-powered effects from the astronomical Antelope Audio collection. 

Orion32+ | Gen 3 Features:Cutting-edge AD/DA converters with up to 129dB dynamic range• FPGA-powered real-time FX models of iconic studio gear• Compatible with AFX2DAW software bridge• Ultra-fast and stable proprietary ThunderboltTM driver for Windows• Sub-millisecond latency at 96-192kHz / 32-64 samples• 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via ThunderboltTM• 32 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via USB• MADI, ADAT, S/PDIF, 8x DB25 analog connectivity• Next-generation 64-bit clocking and jitter management• 10 MHz input enables connection to 10M and 10MX atomic clocks• Word Clock outputs for use as master clock• Networking control from multiple computers• Flexible routing, mixing, and effects chaining via macOS and Windows app• Freely movable and resizable control panels for multi-screen workflows• Facelift for 2019 — gorgeous Carbon Grey faceplate

The original Orion32 HD set a new price/performance standard for HDX-compatible I/O. Industry-leading conversion and exceptional connectivity for the price ensure expectations are redefined once again with the Orion32 HD | Gen 3. Indeed, it includes all the power of the original, now upgraded with Antelope Audio’s flagship- level AD/DA conversion. In fact, its MONITOR output pair has been measured at a phenomenal 136dB dynamic range — an industry-leading specification! With cutting-edge conversion, a refreshed design, and a wide range of real-time, FPGA-powered effects, the Orion32 HD | Gen 3 will make productions and live shows shine like nothing else on the market when it starts shipping. 

Orion32 HD | Gen 3 Features:Pro Tools HD- and Native-compatible 64×64 AD/DA converter• Industry-leading AD/DA conversion with up to 136dB dynamic range• 38 FPGA-powered real-time FX models of iconic studio gear• Streaming of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via HDX or USB 3.0• Next-generation 64-bit clocking and jitter management• 10 MHz input enables connection to 10M and 10MX atomic clocks• Word Clock outputs for use as master clock• Additional connectivity on MADI, ADAT, S/PDIF, 8x DB25• Mastering-grade monitor outputs• Housed in efficient ‘green design’ fan-less chassis• Networking control from multiple computers• Flexible routing, mixing, and effects chaining via macOS and Windows app• Freely movable and resizable control panels for multi-screen workflows• Facelift for 2019 — beautiful Black faceplate

Edge Go, Orion32+ | Gen 3, and Orion32 HD | Gen 3 are all expected to start shipping in Q1 2019 with estimated retail prices of $1,595.00 USD, $2,595.00 USD, and $3,995.00 USD, respectively. Note that the Edge Go package includes the modeling microphone itself, a rock-solid desktop mic stand, a pro-grade pop filter, an amazing custom shock mount, a USB-C cable, and a hard shell carrying case — everything needed to begin recording anywhere, immediately.
