Antelope Orion32 HD 64 Channel HDX & USB3 Audio Interface
64 Channel HDX & USB 3.0 Audio Interface
Orion32 HD Includes a Fine Selection of Free Hardware-Based Vintage AFX
Bulgaria seems to be a bit of a busy place for Pro Audio at the moment with Antelope pushing out some absolutely fantastic gear and progressing on the software side of things at a staggering pace. The Balkan Mountains truly are alive with the sound of music…courtesy of Antelope's pristine AD/DA conversion and supreme clocking!
Enter the new addition to the family - the stunning looking ORION32 HD was announced at NAMM and I imagine Pro Tools HD users are pretty happy. It's compatible with any DAW on the market via a HDX port or USB 3.0. This means no matter what you choose to use in the studio you can benefit from 64 channel 192kHz audio I/O, Zero Latency Monitoring, industry-leading AFC clocking and as you'd expect, flawless conversion. Throw in the usual plethora of connectivity such as ADAT, MADI, S/PDIF, Wordclock and mastering-grade Monitor outs and you have a beast of an interface. Now if you have a Pro Tools HD setup and a customer comes in with a laptop project made on Cubase, Logic or Presonus etc then you can simply use the USB port to integrate their project directly into your existing setup - no extra interfaces needed!
The proprietary FPGA is the heart and soul of all Antelope Audio interfaces and is included inside Orion 32 HD. Allowing you to use Antelope's integrated and ever-growing library of hardware-based vintage EQs, compressors and of course AuraVerb.
