Most Mic/Line Channels
Orion Studio is the latest addition to Antelope Audio's new breed of ThunderboltTM & USB audio interfaces. Its 12 Class-A Mic Pres make it the one and only piece of gear you need to record a full band like a pro. Orion Studio features our traditionally stunning AD/DA conversion, powered by our acclaimed 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology.

Lowest Sound Latency
Orion Studio's secret weapon is the extremely powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. Its massive parallel processing capabilities are far ahead of DSP chips used in similar devices. Through smart algorithms, oversampling and custom-tweeked models, the FPGA provides the lowest latency possible, giving the Antelope audio effects a real hardware-like behavior and feel.

Pro Guitar Interface
Antelope Audio and Overloud made Orion Studio the #1 audio interface for professional guitarists by creating the integrated vintage and contemporary guitar amp & cab simulations. The hardware-based FPGA effects bring precision and audio realism to a whole new level, allowing artists to experiment with multiple speaker configurations, mic placement and EQ settings.

Advanced Remote Apps
Orion Studio features an exciting new approach to control, allowing convenient device management from various access points. The interface is fully controllable via user-friendly desktop and mobile applications. You can now manage all functions of the device from multiple computers. An intuitive iOS / Android mobile app gives you even greater freedom by granting full mic pres control from a smartphone or tablet.

Realistic Vintage FX
With Orion Studio's extremely low latency, playing and recording guitars has never felt so real. Thanks to our love for both analog detail and digital perfection you can now capture the true sound of legendary guitar amps through a unique sampling technique for vintage gear modeling. Orion Studio offers an array of hardware-quality audio effects, among which the legendary Pultec EQ emulation and the extremely versatile AuraVerb reverb.

Monitoring Revolutionized
With Orion Studio you can create up to four independent, zero latency mixes. Those can be easily assigned to any output including the two separate headphone outs. Now the musicians and the engineer can monitor the session in their preferred manner. Thanks to the convenient Orion Studio software you can quickly switch between two pairs of monitors and easily control the two independent headphone outputs.

FPGA Thunderbolt & Custom USB
Orion Studio's FPGA powered ThunderboltTM and custom USB are Antelope's guarantee for the lowest sound latency on the market. The massive parallel processing capabilities of the interface allow fast, simultaneous streaming of multiple audio channels and instant effects processing.

Connectivity Gone Wild
Orion Studio works with any Windows or OS X DAW on the market. The variety of digital and analog I/O combined with the flexible routing matrix make the device easily interconnectable to various outboard gear. Orion Studio offers two pairs of monitoring outputs, 16 analog outs, 2 reamp outputs, plus 16 channels I/O via ADAT and 2 channels I/O on S/PDIF.
