2017 NAMM Show TEC Awards Nomination in the "Computer Audio Hardware" category!Breaking News August 2016! Orion32+ Now Features Antelope Audio's New Hardware-Based Vintage EffectsAntelope's exclusive set of vintage EQs models now available in one of the manufacturer's most classic products.
Antelope Audio's game-changing 32-channels ThunderboltTM & USB AD/DA Orion32+ got a significant update. The device now features Antelope Audio's brand new line of hardware-based vintage effects. Powered by Antelope's proprietary Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) they offer unbeatable authenticity while maintaining practically zero performance latency.
Standard buffered DSP plug-in effects would require complex programming codes to operate. That significantly increases the required CPU resources. Moreover, such plug-ins often add processing delay or noise to the sound and tend to negatively affect the stereo image. The FPGA-based audio FX technology, currently pioneered by Antelope Audio, allows engineers, artists or recordists to maintain audio realism and hi-end sound quality, but with tools who feel and behave like real hardware gear.
Antelope Audio's latest update will breathe a new life to Orion32+, a device, still unbeatable on the market. Once updated, your device will not only give you access to a growing and exclusive set of hardware-quality effects, but will extend your device functionality. The Orion32+ is now controllable from several computers in the same network. This gives great freedom when working in multiple-room studios and during complex sessions. The Orion32+ software is now also fully resizable and with detachable panels - something all our users have been excited about.

Orion32 + is a successor to the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA, now offering a greater variety of interfaces such as Thunderbolt, MADI and USB. The digital connectivity options are complimented also by ADAT and S/PDIF.
Orion32 + provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, allowing for low latency simultaneous I/O streaming of 32 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio signal. The analog I/O are handled by 8 D-Sub 25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for the monitoring.Enhanced Routing, Mixing and Monitoring
Orion32 + offers stunning flexibility and great productivity, providing a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers, built-in DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. The entire control is gathered in a desktop application available for both OS X and Windows.
The control panel is based on the software created initially for Orion32 and further developed for another Antelope Audio leading product, Zen Studio. Orion32+ control panel is an extremely intuitive user-friendly interface, which incorporates both our know-how and customers’ feedback.Digital clarity meets analog detail in Antelope Audio’s signature sound
The proven clocking accuracy is supported by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, the same as with the flagship Trinity Master Clock.
The clean, transparent and detailed conversion in Orion32+ is the same as with its predecessor, which has proved its sound quality in a great number of studios and live shows across the Globe.
The 10 MHz input, enabling connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX, makes Orion32+ crystal oscillator remarkably precise, emphasizing the signature Antelope sound. The two word clock outputs make Orion32+ a great fit in any setup, not only as an interface, but a master clock as well.We fitted the Orion32+ with our own proprietary DSP engine
It is optimized to run custom equalization, compression, and reverb plug-ins. This potent processing arsenal includes our new AuraVerb, as well as other effects to be released – all included at no additional cost.
AuraVerb creates various ambient colors, or “Auras”, using a unique algorithm to provide richness like no other reverb plugin on the market. Producers can easily design thickening effects, washing effects, bright halo type film score effects. There are also darkened mood effects and long, clear and rich decays – just a few of the many dimensions, which AuraVerb is able to add to the mix. AuraVerb comes with reverb presets, exclusively designed by the 5-time Grammy Award winning recording and mixing engineer Brian “Dr. Vibb” Vibberts.MP32 32-Channel Mic Pres - Perfect Match For Orion32 Audio Interface
MP32 is a 32-channel console-grade microphone preamp with integrated software remote control and Antelope Audio's exciting new approach to analog circuit design.
The rave reviews shared by several top audio engineers regarding the quality of the 12 mic preamps in our portable audio interface Zen Studio urged us to expand further and create a 32-channel mic preamp housed in only two rack spaces. We designed MP32 to be a perfect match for our top-selling audio interface Orion32, this way ensuring a full transparency of the sound and complete integrity of the signal via the whole chain, from the mic pres through the conversion, recording and playback, all of them characterized by the signature Antelope sound. The combination of the Orion32 and MP32 — totaling just 3U in rack space — make it a perfectly suited solution for studios and live recording where rack space can be a precious commodity.
• Exceptional clarity, transparency and dynamics.
• MP32 features 32 class-A mic pres with phantom power, 32 line inputs, of which 4 can operate as Hi-Z instrument inputs. All inputs are XLR combos on the front panel of the MP32.
• MP32's mic preamps are open and transparent, yet designed to maintain both signal clarity and sonic realism consistently throughout the recording process. The MP32 offers excellent headroom and up to 68 dB of gain in 1 dB steps, more than enough to power even the most demanding ribbon mics, while maintaining ultra-low THD+N (-110.5 dB).
• Digital remote control.
• A user-friendly control panel for Mac or Windows allows for easy remote management of the device’s input types and mic gain levels. The intuitive software control panel provides fast set up and easy fine-tuning of individual mic preamp gain, as well as the independent assignment of phantom power and mic/line/hi-z switching. Complex gain structure and preamp settings are made incredibly simple by the user-defined presets, just a mouse click away. In addition, individual V/U style metering allows for instant signal confirmation at a glance of the software.
