Goliath Thunderbolt ™, USB and MADI Audio Interface: Extremely flexible hybrid interface, featuring Antelope Audio's most iconic clocking and AD/DA technologies.
Goliath is Antelope's most powerful audio interface with 16 Mic Pres, extended analog and digital connectivity, and an array of integrated hardware-based FPGA effects.

Thunderbolt , USB and MADI Audio Interface with 16 Mic Pres
Antelope Audio has packed more than 20 years’ experience in digital audio, clocking and analog circuit development into an impressive, amazing-sounding and versatile, professional audio interface – Goliath. The blazing-fast Thunderbolttm , USB, and MADI I/O houses a total of 36 analog ins and 32 analog outs, including 16-Channels of Class-A Mic Preamps with pristine and transparent AD/DA, all powered by Antelope’s renowned clocking technology.

Expansive Connectivity
64 channels via Thunderbolttm can be routed to a vast selection of digital and Analog I/O options, including MADI, AES, ADAT, and S/PDIF for digital signals. There are 36 Analog Inputs and 32 Analog Outputs with stunning pristine AD/DA converters. These include 4 superb Instrument DI’s, 2 transformer Reamp Outs, 2 Headphone Outs with integrated Talkback on the front, and 16-Channels of Class-A Mic Preamps, 2 sets of Stereo Inserts and a pair of mastering grade Monitor Outs on the back. The DB25 connectors feature 24 Outputs (1-8 can be level controlled for Surround Sound Mixing) and 16 additional Line Inputs, making Goliath an attractive solution for Hardware Inserts and Summing. Even more Analog I/O Channels can be added by connecting Antelope’s own Orion32 or Orion32+ using MADI, for a full 64 Channels of Analog I/O simultaneously.

Custom DSP & Guitar FX
Goliath employs Antelope’s powerfully fast FPGA-based DSP engine, able to process four zero latency mixers with custom effects, like the stunning new AuraVerb reverb and several new modern and vintage hardware EQ and compressor models. Antelope’s new RealModel technology create the most accurate modeling yet of the actual components to vividly create the true sound of classic analog gear. Stacks of FX can then be combined to build custom FX Chains and saved as Presets inside the AFX engine. Guitar Players will love this new FX approach when combined with Antelope’s new partnership with Overloud Audio Tools’ amp modeling, which also comes preloaded with Goliath.

Great Clocking = Great Sound
Goliath’s precise clocking is run by antelope’s proprietary 4th generation of acoustically focused clocking (afc) jitter management algorithm and oven-controlled crystal oscillator, as featured in antelope’s best crystal-based master clocks. For optimum detail and sound stage, Goliath can be additionally synced to the extremely accurate Rubidium Atomic Clock – 10MX. It can be used as a master clock for two other products via the two Word Clock Outs on BNC.

Speed Changes Everything
Antelope’s record setting Thunderbolttm speeds, combined with real-time FPGA mixers and FX mark an end to the need for offline DSP to enhance the power of a modern DAW on today’s computers. Antelope interfaces make use of real-time DSP for specific tasks, such as monitor mixing with reverb, tracking through accurately modeled EQ and Compression, as well as exceptional guitar amp models from highly regarded Overloud Audio Tools. Antelope’s custom Thunderbolttm circuit enables users to route to external hardware gear in near real-time or route recorded guitars or other audio out of antelope reamp outputs to external pedals or other instrument processors. Monitoring the results is so fast, a guitar player could even play live through the chain without feeling any lag from the excessive latency of standard buffering, usually associated with external DSP solutions.
