Antelope'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 32-channel Thunderbolt™ and USB AD/DA, it fits in 1U rack space and is a successor to the world's first 32-channel converter

Versatile Connectivity Options
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.

Antelope’s Conversion and Clocking Legacy
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 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.

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.
