DESCRIPTION

THE POWER OF THE FPGA FX

Explore a growing library of legendary studio gear when tracking, mixing and mastering

FPGA offers a whole new level of real time performance and sonic excellence. The platform is taking advantage of real hardware circuitry and component modeling, allowing engineers to track a vocalist with a zero latency headphone mix, including reverb; record a guitar part with proper feel & tone, using onboard amp and cabinet FX. Capturing a full drum kit is also brought to another level with up to 16 mics using the industry’s best new Microphone and Mic Preamp technology, all in realtime.

…it looks great, sounds fantastic, feels reliable and solid — everything a high end piece of studio gear should be”

Matt Vanacoro, one of New York’s premier musicians, he has collaborated as a keyboardist in studio and on stage with artists such as Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater), Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra), Mark Rivera (Billy Joel Band), Aaron Carter and many more.

LEAVE LATENCY BEHIND

Revolutionize your Pro Tools HD workflow

With Antelope’s proprietary HDX Delay Compensation, any analog or digital input can arrive in Pro Tools HD sample accurately in the timeline. No other interface on the market offer this level of perfect integration for digital sources to Pro Tools HD software.

The Antelope Audio Real-time FX, zero latency independent software mixers and routing matrix with two alternative views are the perfect compliment to Pro Tools HD studios, which have come to expect maximum power at their disposal. Goliath HD, however, is compatible with any DAW on the market making the device the heart and soul of the highest tier audio facilities around the world. Our newly introduced full Session Presets are the perfect match for the complex and large-scale setups and projects Goliath HD was designed to handle.

HD STUDIO CENTERPIECE

Work on complex projects and multiple DAWs with Goliath HD

By offering both HD and USB 3.0 modes, engineers can now accommodate producers and their laptop projects and integrate them into their existing HD setups by easily switching between HD and our low latency Thunderbolt™ Gen2 and new USB 3.0 modes.

Goliath HD guarantees quiet operation even in the most demanding control rooms. Don’t be surprised if soon expensive machine rooms become a thing of the past.

CLOCK IT LIKE IT’S HOT

The key to top sound is the Antelope Audio clocking

Another reason why Goliath HD sounds like no other interface on the market is because of the world-renowned Antelope Audio Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technologies it features. With over 20 years of history in digital clocking behind us, we backed the Goliath HD up with all OCX HD and Trinity sounding audio clocking.

This unbeatable sonic detail and precision, combined with analog authenticity will bring your sound to the realms of hi-end audio. Now you can also spread this perfection across your whole studio as BNC connectors are available for use as Loop Sync, standard Word Clock I/O and the Antelope Audio 10M atomic input.

… it reacts right away, it shows exactly what you’re doing at the moment, there’s zero latency. And it’s a beautiful thing.”

ALL THE CONTROL YOU NEED

Goliath HD comes with a revised Touchscreen display and enhanced front panel

Goliath HD features a redesigned front panel. With enhanced monitor and level indicators, the responsive Touchscreen offers multichannel metering, easy access to preferences, presets, and clocking modes for HD or Native interfacing.
