Product Overview All-Star Technology & Performance
Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 8 features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.

The Antelope AFX platform is a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which are now accessible in the DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Console-grade and fully Discrete Preamps offer world-class sound.
Discrete 8 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into a plethora of classic units real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 8 ReAmp outputs will allow you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Transform Edge & Verge Into Vintage Replicas
Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

Proprietary Clocking & Secret Jitter Management Technologies
Discrete 8 is designed as a professional clocking solution in its own right. It features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from highly acclaimed clock units like Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock and Pure2. Discrete 8 comes with a Word Clock (WC) Input that can de-jitter and distribute an external clock signal. Three WC outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF. Discrete 8 will make sure all your gear is perfectly synced.

Maintain multiple mixes and exchange presets
Monitoring and Talkback sections in Discrete 8 are easy to set. Up to 4 individual monitoring mixes can be sent to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without FPGA FX. Custom headphone mixes might be tailored for each performer. Vintage EQ, Compression and guitar amps allow the artists to hear a sound as close to the final product as possible.

Discrete 8 can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with the entire Antelope line of FPGA equipped pro audio interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other Antelope users or see how the pros are setting up their sessions.

Control Discrete 8 with the EasyPanel or free iOS and Android mobile apps
The Discrete 8 downloadable remote App allows you to adjust all microphone input levels, Talkback levels, as well as Monitoring and Headphone volumes. Musicians can now control their own headphone volume through their phones. The engineer can check input levels from the tracking room. The device can be accessed from different computers connected to the same network.

Basic FX pack
Enter the world of authentic vintage gear modeling with the Basic FX pack that comes with Discrete 8. Explore the true sound of iconic and expensive units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, Lang and FET. The Basic FX pack allows you to use 2 instances of each EQ, compressor and AuraVerb; plus 1 instance of each guitar amp & cabinet models available. This Basic FX collection features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Plug in your guitar directly into one of the hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with some of the most iconic guitar amps and cabinets around. Then add vintage compression, EQ and AuraVerb to hear a finished studio quality result with real-time responsiveness while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet and microphone combination. Perform and record either with FX or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects. The Discrete 8 ReAmp outputs will allow you to connect any of your effect pedals or outboard gear and record that sound back in your preferred DAW.
