Overview

…this is one beast you aren’t going to want to set free once you have it in captivity.”

A TECHNOLOGICAL FUSION

Antelope Audio’s Eclipse 384 is not only an AD/DA Converter, but a master clock and monitoring controller as well

Eclipse 384 is an advanced 384 kHz A/D & D/A converter clocked by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit technology and a flexible monitoring system that creates a technological synergy by combining the most prominent Antelope’s innovations. It provides mastering and mixing engineers an unprecedented level of productivity, sound quality and ease of use.

DESCRIPTION

RECOGNITION

First introduced during the AES summit in New York in 2011, the Eclipse was selected as “Best of Show” by ProSound Network. Later in 2011 the Eclipse was awarded “Gear of the Year” by Audio Media.

Thanks to your feedback and opinions, in 2012 the Eclipse 384 was nominated for PAR Excellence award.

2x 64-bit DSP Trinity-quality Master Clocks

Eclipse brings a more natural-sounding sample rate conversion

This unique dual-domain clocking system enables analog-based sample rate conversion. The integrated patching/routing capabilities make monitoring of either analog or digital sources extremely simple, avoiding jitter, distortion and cabling noise.

By eliminating the many input and output stages and the various power supplies, that would be present in separate devices, the noise floor can be substantially reduced and the audio quality significantly improved.

easy Monitor Controlling

Suited for every environment

The fully integrated monitor controller employs 0.05 dB accurate gold-plated relay attenuators and provides speaker switching, bass management and cue mix functions with integrated talkback.

STUDIO AND LIVE

Eclipse can reinvent not only your studio sound, but your live rig as well

Master clocks are becoming more and more popular for use with digital consoles and recording equipment at concerts and live events.

By using the Eclipse 384, a live sound engineer is able to provide sync reference for up to four different devices, while using the main D/A for backing material, the A/D with multiple digital outs feeding redundant recording systems, and monitor DAC to check the recording post A/D conversion.

eclipse changes everything

All you need in a device taking up just 2U space

The Eclipse also includes two dedicated headphone amplifiers and a custom USB interface, as well as two large peak meters on the front panel. The advanced software control panel compatible with both Mac & PC, allows five nameable presets for easy recall of favorite setups.
