Introducing the Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3 audio interface
Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3 is a new USB3 32 IO audio interface with internal DSP-effects and Pro-Tools HDX compatibility.
Antelope Audio introduces the latest addition to their range of high-end audio interfaces, the new Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3. It’s a full 32 inputs and 32 output audio interface designed for the more demanding studio and recording applications.
The new Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3 offer a staggeringly high 136dB of dynamic range and features the AD/DA quality that Antelope Audio is known for.
The Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3 is powered by an integrated FPGA chip powerful enough to handle all the internal configuration and settings alongside 16 slots of built-in DSP effects.
The chip is powerful enough to handle circuit-level emulations of some classic studio gear such as Pultec, Neve (1173), API, SSL, Urei (1176), Sta-Level, Fairchild (670), dbx (160) – 37 effects to choose from in total.
The Orion 32HD Gen 3 is designed around a completely modular routing system, allowing you to run any input to any output. It has several internal mixing consoles for different applications, which can all be recalled at the touch of a front-panel button.
Just about the most affordable way of interfacing 32 IO with a ProTools HDX System…
Apart from the analog I/O over DSUB, the Antelope Orion 32HD Gen 3 has two HDX Ports, allowing you to connect it up to a ProTools HD, HDX or HD Native system.
It’s not cheap by any stretch of the imagination, however when weighing up the options this is just about the most affordable solution for 32 IO into a high-end ProTools system.
The Orion 32HD Gen 3 is designed for the more demanding recording and studio applications, it will excel in situations with outboard analog consoles due to its clean AD/DA and channel count, however it may not be the perfect solution for a home studio, as there is only a single pair of Jack outputs for monitors and no headphone amplifier. It’s set to retail at USD $3995 (Around R57k Excl. duties).
