Antelope - 'Discrete 8'
& Audeze 'LCD-X'

Antelope Discrete 8

scan pro audio presents...Carefully pieced together by our Studio experts here at Scan Pro Audio, this bundle comprised of Antelope’s ‘Discrete 8’ audio interface and Audeze’s multi-award winning ‘LCD-X’, will deliver an audio production experience unlike any you’ve had before. With Antelope's ‘Discrete 8’ audio interface, you can work with ‘Premier Synergy Core FX’ processing, enjoy 36 real-time audio effects, and track through 8 console grade Class A mic pres with discrete transistor design.

The LCD-X was Audeze’s first foray into designing headphones that were specifically designed for studio engineers in mind. Packing Audeze’s most neutral drivers, the LCD-X highlights even the smallest of nuances with stunning transparency to make sure your mix is as you intended it to be across any system.

A large number of the world’s most famous and well loved albums have been mixed/mastered with Audeze headphones. Albums from Ed Sheeran, Adele, John Mayer, Kanye West, Lorde, Imagine Dragons and a host of others. What’s more amazing is that the majority of these engineers who worked on the aforementioned albums didn’t use headphones whilst working before hearing the incredible performance of Audeze headphones.

Thunderbolt & USB Audio Interface
Antelope - 'Discrete 8'

Antelope Discrete 8

Console-grade discrete
microphone preamp interface
The Discrete 8 Synergy Core from Antelope is an audio interface with onboard DSP and FPGA to free up valuable CPU from your computer during mix sessions. It also includes a vast swath of FPGA-powered effects, many of which can be used with Antelope modeling microphones, giving you the sound of multiple vintage microphones at a fraction of the cost of real-world hardware.

The Discrete 8 offers eight Class-A preamps that provide console-grade sound. All of them utilize combination XLR-1/4" connections, but two of them are specifically designed to switch between mic level, line level, and Hi-Z sources. Monitor outputs and two pairs of line outputs can be found on the back of the unit, as can thunderbolt and USB ports for connecting to computers. You'll get 24 channels of I/O over USB, and 32 channels over thunderbolt. Should you want use of your amplifiers after DI'ing your guitars or basses, you can make use of the two ReAmp outputs.

S/PDIF and ADAT are both provided over optical I/O. The unit is expandable over ADAT, giving you extra channels. This is Antelope, so you'll find their top-notch 64-bit acoustically focused clocking on the unit, and you can sync the Discrete 8 over BNC connections, or distribute clocking to other units. Setting up monitor mixes is easy, and musicians can control their own mixes with a remote-control app over iOS or Android phones.

With all these features and more, the Antelope makes a suitable centerpiece for your home or pro-level studio.

Antelope Discrete 8

FPGA technologyAntelope Audio FPGA technology powers over 50 real-time effects. Use up to two channel strips with four FX instances each within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel. These not only sound but respond just like real hardware thanks to the unit's component-based modeling platform.

sculpt your tonePlug in your guitar directly into one of the two hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with guitar amps and cabinet models. Add compression, EQ, and AuraVerb while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet, and microphone combination.

integrated guitar effectsPerform and record either with effects or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects. The Discrete 8's two reamp outputs allow you to connect any of your effect pedals or outboard gear and record that sound back into your preferred DAW.

Unparalleled Connectivity

4K Recording

ANALOGue & DIGITAL I/OWith an abundance of analogue & digital connectivity, as well as both USB & Thunderbolt ports for computer connection, the Discrete 8 Synergy Core presents more options than any DSP-equipped interface out there. Eight mic/line inputs, two instrument inputs, eight DC-coupled line outputs on DB25, a pair of monitor outputs, two reamp outputs, two headphone outputs and S/PDIF are at your disposal. Digital expandability is possible via 2 × ADAT I/O chaining.

A Word Clock input allows for syncing the Discrete 8 Synergy Core with other gear, while three Word Clock outputs let you distribute the interface’s highly stable clock signal across your studio.

Introducing 'Discrete 8' | Antelope Audio

Antelope AudioDiscrete 8 comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 124 db dynamic range conversion and the Antelope Audio rock solid clocking.

Discrete 8 is a console-grade discrete microphone preamp interface which features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.

'Made to Mix, Made to Master'
Audeze - 'LCD-X'

Audeze

Music Creators Package Since it's release, the LCD-X has become THE headphone for Professional Audio users. Many of the world's biggest records have been mixed and/or mastered with Audeze headphones. These includes songs from Ed Sheeran, Adele, John Mayer, Kanye West, Lorde, Imagine Dragons and many others. Perhaps more amazing is the fact these engineers and producers never used headphones in their workflow until they heard Audeze!.

After consulting many producers and mix engineers using LCD range headphones, we realised that the majority kept them in the studio, where they were used with the single ended (quarter inch jack) cable. This isnt a downgrade of the LCD-X itself, which still comes with a premium braided quater inch cable, but the flightcase and balanced cable are now not included as standard, but of course can be bought separately if required.

If you do have a dedicated DAC / Amp (such as the excellent iFi 'Zen Dac', Lake People 'G109P' or RME 'ADI-2 DAC'), then you can unlock another level of detail and precision. The reference-level LCD-X is an exciting addition to the LCD planar magnetic headphone collection. The LCD-X features a newly-developed and processed transducer made of a thinner and lighter alternative material.

Exclusive LCD-X Planar Magnetic Technology

Planar

The Engineers Best Friend Audeze had one goal in mind when designing the LCD range of headphones "To recreate sound precisely as the artist intended". The LCD range produce incredibly accurate and detailed sound, which has won Audeze many awards in the Hi-Fi world and gained many professional studio users including Ken Andrews (Paramore, Nine Inch Nails), Rob Swire (Pendulum / Knife Party), Richie Hawtin, Andy C & Noisia, as well as many of the world's leading mastering engineers.

• Audeze Headphones utilise Planar Magnetic technology which overcome many of the limitations of cone-based drivers.

• Unlike conventional cones which are attached to a voice coil with a single magnet, Planar Magnetic drivers have two sets of magnets, with the diaphragm etched onto a wafer-thin film in between them with one set of magnets pushing as one set pulls. As the magnetic field is distributed across the entire diaphragm, it can move faster, reproducing the waves much more accurately and also reduces distortion. Other headphones and speakers often have square waves that look more like sawtooths, due to the cone not being able to move as fast as required.

• Planar magnetic drivers are also a lot more durable than dynamic drivers as only the diaphragm actually moves in the headphones, so the drivers wont degrade as they get older.

• Audeze made many changes to the basic planar magnetic design, with them being renowned for their extended low frequency response and exceptionally sharp transients.

Designed, Engineered in Audeze's California Factory

Design

Refined Aluminium Finish You'll be proud of how the LCD-X looks and sounds; it's imbued with sophisticated looks and beautiful anodized aluminium rings that are manufactured at Audeze's facility. The quality of the entire structure guarantees years of trouble-free listening. The cutting-edge designs and circuit technologies have created a breathtakingly beautiful sounding headphone.

These include the new "Fazor" waveguides in each earphone assembly. The Fazor elements improve clarity, focus and the already spectacular holographic imaging. The two Fazor elements are placed just outside the two magnet structures that surround the diaphragm in each capsule. They guide and manage the flow of sound around the magnets.
