Overview

The most powerful audio interface on the market

Offering the biggest number of I/O’s available on the market, Goliath is the result of Antelope’s 20+ years of experience in digital audio, innovative clocking technologies and analog circuit design.

Connectable via blazing-fast Thunderbolt™, USB & 2 x MADI, Goliath houses a total of 36 analog ins and 32 analog outs, providing digital clarity and analog realism like no other audio interface out there.

Antelope’s most powerful audio interface comes with an array of hardware-based audio effects, among which vintage guitar amps & cabs, AuraVerb reverb, legendary EQ and compressor emulations, plus our world-renowned Acoustically Focused Clocking technology.

DESCRIPTION

THE SOUND YOU HAVE ALWAYS DREAMED OF

Flawless clocking and unique analog circuitry brings pro sound to a new level.

At Antelope Audio we love to say that best clock = best sound.
So, no surprise that our 4th generation of Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management algorithms (AFC) is in charge of Goliath’s flawless clocking. The audio interface features the oven-controlled crystal oscillator you know from Antelope’s signature crystal-based master clocks.
For optimum detail and sound stage, Goliath can be additionally synced to the extremely accurate Rubidium Atomic Clock – 10MX, and it can also be used as a master clock for two other devices via Word Clock Outs on BNC.

REALISTIC VINTAGE FX

Process multiple zero latency mixes and get crazy creative with Goliath’s custom hardware-based effects.

Goliath employs Antelope’s powerful FPGA-based DSP engine, a massive platform allowing you to process four zero latency mixers with custom effects.
These include the stunning AuraVerb reverb and several modern and vintage hardware EQ and compressor models.

Antelope’s new RealModel technology recreate not only the true sound of classic analog gear but its behavior and feel as well. Stacks of effects can be combined in custom FX Chains and saved as Presets.

All our guitar amp and cabs simulations were developed in a partnership with leaders in guitar software Overloud Audio Tools, so we know guitar players will just love Goliath.

64 channels via Thunderbolt™

can be routed to a vast selection of digital and Analog I/O options, including MADI, AES, ADAT, and S/PDIF.

Goliath offers 36 Analog Inputs and 32 Analog Outputs with pristine AD/DA converters. These include 4 superb Instrument DI’s, 2 transformer Reamp Outs, 2 Headphone Outs with integrated Talkback on the front, 16-Channels of Class-A Mic Preamps, 2 sets of Stereo Inserts and a pair of mastering grade Monitor Outs on the back.

The DB25 connectors feature 24 Outputs (1-8 can be level controlled for Surround Sound Mixing) and 16 additional Line Inputs, making Goliath an attractive solution for Hardware Inserts and Summing.

Even more Analog I/O Channels can be added by connecting Antelope’s Orion32 or Orion32+ via MADI for a total of 64 Channels of Analog I/O simultaneously.
