Microphone Preamp Interface With Premium FX Pack
Antelope - Discrete 8

Antelope Discrete 8

PREMIUM TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCEAntelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface adds a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It features 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 8 includes all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, such as authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and much more.

The Antelope AFX platform is a quickly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 comes with Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge range of classic vintage gear, which are accessible in any DAW via the afx2daw.

Amazing Features • Console-grade Class A mic pres with discrete transistor design and precise digital gain controls
• Premier real-time FX including BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio and Lang classics to use in the Easy Panel or in a DAW
• Turn the expensive sounding Discrete 8 mic pres into classic units via Tube, Transformer and FET based circuitry in real-time
• Control all Discrete 8 features via its intuitive Easy Panel or download the free iOS and Android mobile apps
• Create up to 4 custom monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included and send them to Headphone or Monitor outs
• Discrete 8 features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology

Legendary FX Gear In Your DAW

Antelope Discrete 8

premier real-time FPGA FX The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb – along with authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via afx2daw. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 8 ReAmp outputs will enable you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Giving You Complete Control

Antelope Discrete 8

Transform Edge & Verge Into vintage replicasInside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas providing complete control over proximity effect and allowing you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Select from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

ANTELOPE-STYLE CLOCKINGDiscrete 8 is designed as a professional clocking solution in its own right. It includes 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.

EXPERT LEVEL MONITORINGMonitoring 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 let the artists 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.

Advanced Remote ControlThe Discrete 8 downloadable remote app allows you to adjust all microphone input levels, Talkback levels, along with 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.

'Made to Mix, Made to Master'
Audeze - 'LCD-X'
(Leather)

Audeze

Music Creators PackageThe Audeze LCD-X creator pack has been improved with the addition of a lightweight travel case. This is more practical for many travellers than the larger waterproof travel case. It is compact and enables you to put it inside a suitcase or cabin bag more easily, rather than it having to be a piece of luggage on it's own.

Since it's release, the LCD-X has become THE headphone for Professional Audio users. Many of the world's biggest records have been mixed and/or mastered with Audeze headphones. These includes songs from Ed Sheeran, Adele, John Mayer, Kanye West, Lorde, Imagine Dragons and many others. Perhaps more amazing is the fact these engineers and producers never used headphones in their workflow until they heard Audeze!.

After consulting many producers and mix engineers using LCD range headphones, we realised that the majority kept them in the studio, where they were used with the single ended (quarter inch jack) cable. This isnt a downgrade of the LCD-X itself, which still comes with a premium braided quater inch cable, but the flightcase and balanced cable are now not included as standard, but of course can be bought separately if required.

If you do have a dedicated DAC / Amp (such as the excellent iFi 'Zen Dac', Lake People 'G109P' or RME 'ADI-2 DAC'), then you can unlock another level of detail and precision. The reference-level LCD-X is an exciting addition to the LCD planar magnetic headphone collection. The LCD-X features a newly-developed and processed transducer made of a thinner and lighter alternative material.

Exclusive LCD-X Planar Magnetic Technology

Planar

The Engineers Best Friend Audeze had one goal in mind when designing the LCD range of headphones "To recreate sound precisely as the artist intended". The LCD range produce incredibly accurate and detailed sound, which has won Audeze many awards in the Hi-Fi world and gained many professional studio users including Ken Andrews (Paramore, Nine Inch Nails), Rob Swire (Pendulum / Knife Party), Richie Hawtin, Andy C & Noisia, as well as many of the world's leading mastering engineers.

• Audeze Headphones utilise Planar Magnetic technology which overcome many of the limitations of cone-based drivers.

• Unlike conventional cones which are attached to a voice coil with a single magnet, Planar Magnetic drivers have two sets of magnets, with the diaphragm etched onto a wafer-thin film in between them with one set of magnets pushing as one set pulls. As the magnetic field is distributed across the entire diaphragm, it can move faster, reproducing the waves much more accurately and also reduces distortion. Other headphones and speakers often have square waves that look more like sawtooths, due to the cone not being able to move as fast as required.

• Planar magnetic drivers are also a lot more durable than dynamic drivers as only the diaphragm actually moves in the headphones, so the drivers wont degrade as they get older.

• Audeze made many changes to the basic planar magnetic design, with them being renowned for their extended low frequency response and exceptionally sharp transients.

Designed, Engineered in Audeze's California Factory

Design

Refined Aluminium Finish You'll be proud of how the LCD-X looks and sounds; it's imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful anodized aluminium rings that are manufactured at Audeze's facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. The cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

These include the new "Fazor" waveguides in each earphone assembly. The Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. The two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm in each capsule. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets.
