HOT NEWS

Orion32+ now allows 64 channels I/O simultaneous streaming via Thunderbolt™.
Its enhanced software panel features 14 vintage EQs, networking control, smart resizing & sharding.

Overview

64-CHANNELS OF AUDIO VIA THUNDERBOLT™

Connect Orion32 + to any DAW on the market

Orion32 + provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, allowing for low latency simultaneous I/O streaming of 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio signal via ThunderboltTM and 32 channels via USB. The analog I/O are handled by 8 DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for monitoring.

Orion32 + is a successor to the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA, now offering a greater variety of interfaces such as Thunderbolt, MADI and USB. The digital connectivity options are complimented also by ADAT and S/PDIF.

Thunderbolt™ meets Orion 32

DESCRIPTION

STUNNING FLEXIBILITY

Enhanced Routing, Mixing and Monitoring

Orion32 + offers stunning flexibility and great productivity, providing a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers, built-in DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. The entire control is gathered in a desktop application available for both OS X and Windows.

The control panel is based on the software created initially for Orion32 and further developed for another Antelope Audio leading product, Zen Studio. Orion32+ control panel is an extremely intuitive user-friendly interface, which incorporates both our know-how and customers’ feedback.

I want to show you today the Orion stack that we built […] As far as we know, we are the only ones that can do 160 channels up to 96k…”

Marcel James is the Director of Sales and Marketing at Antelope Audio.

Orion 32+ 32-channel Thunderbolt™ and USB AD/DA

HIGH-END CLOCKING & CONVERSION

Digital clarity meets analog detail in Antelope Audio’s signature sound

The proven clocking accuracy is supported by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, the same as with the flagship Trinity Master Clock.

The clean, transparent and detailed conversion in Orion32+ is the same as with its predecessor, which has proved its sound quality in a great number of studios and live shows across the Globe.

The 10 MHz input, enabling connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX, makes Orion32+ crystal oscillator remarkably precise, emphasizing the signature Antelope sound. The two word clock outputs make Orion32+ a great fit in any setup, not only as an interface, but a master clock as well.

So many channels in 1U, it is certainly a great asset…”

THE POWER OF THE PROPRIETARY FPGA

Orion32+ features Antelope Audio’s hardware-based effects

Antelope Audio’s proprietary FPGA is optimized to run custom equalization, compression, and reverb plug-ins. This potent modeling arsenal includes our vintage EQ models, AuraVerb, as well as other effects to be released – all coming at no additional cost.

Orion32+ features all four members of the Antelope EQ Legends bundle including VEQ-1A our emulation of a legendary tube EQ, which’s been an inseparable part of every pro studio in the world. VMEQ-5 will make your mid range shine as never before. VEQ-55A will enahnce all details your mix has been missing. Last but not least Orion32+ gives you the chance to explore the great analog sound of the BAE-1073 – a cult and versatile 70’s channel module easily found on all your favorite records.

AuraVerb creates various ambient colors, or “Auras”, using a unique algorithm to provide richness like no other reverb plugin on the market. Producers can easily design thickening effects, washing effects, bright halo type film score effects. AuraVerb comes with reverb presets, exclusively designed by the 5-time Grammy Award winning recording and mixing engineer Brian “Dr. Vibb” Vibberts.

REDESIGNED SOFTWARE PANEL

Enhanced Orion32+ desktop application for even smoother studio workflow

Control all Orion32+ features and functions from its freshly redesigned desktop app. OS X and Windows compatible, the control panel follows Antelope Audio’s networking control concept, meaning you can now access the interface from multiple computers in the same network. The Orion32+ software panel allows users to detach all its sections into freely movable and resizable panels for more convenient session arrangements, especially important for engineers and artists with multiple screen setups.

In Cubase the latency spec’ed out at 0.917 ms in and 0.646 ms out at a buffer setting of 32, and 1.250 ms in and 0.979 ms out at 64…
In plain english: it’s freakin’ fast!”
