[AES] Antelope Audio introduces Orion 32+
Antelope Audio announces the introduction of its new Orion32+ flagship interface at this year's AES Convention [Booth 637].
Now featuring Thunderbolt compatibility, zero latency monitoring and unmatched sonic depth and clarity, the Orion32+ is said to deliver more flexibility and sonic integrity to a demanding new generation of recording engineers and musicians.
Orion32+ follows in the footsteps of the world's first 32 channel AD/DA converter, delivering 32 channels of I/O, complete connectivity options, zero latency monitoring and 32-simultaneous channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio. In addition to providing flexible connectivity options via Thunderbolt, MADI and USB, Orion32+ also incorporates ADAT and S/PDIF throughput, with I/O being handled by eight D-Sub 25 connectors and a pair of mastering grade monitor outputs — both capable of delivering up to 129 dB.
In addition to featuring Thunderbolt and USB compatibility, Orion32+ also includes Antelope's powerful DSP engine, which is optimized to run customized EQ, compressor and reverb settings. These include the recently announced AuraVerb and other forthcoming effects, which are included at no additional cost.
The accompanying software application for Orion32+ is announced as simple to operate, providing a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers and intelligent DSP effects integration. The software application, originally created for the highly successful Orion32 and further refined for Zen Studio, is available for both OS X and Windows operating systems. Orion32+ is also fully supported by Antelope's 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology.
Orion32+ is expected to ship in mid-November and is priced at $3,495 (U.S.). More information available at http://www.antelopeaudio.com.
