DESCRIPTION

FPGA POWERED

Reinvent your studio workflow with the growing Antelope FX library

Zen Studio+ comes with a growing arsenal of vintage FPGA-based effects, including accurately modeled EQs, compressors, guitar amps and cabinets. The key to the Zen Studio+ modeling engine is its custom FPGA chip. This proprietary technology makes the interface much faster and more powerful than competing devices. You can not only create and control multiple monitor mixes in realtime, but also employ the sound of legendary studio hardware classics ,while exclusively working in-the-box.

The exquisite collections of Vintage EQ’s include authentically models of Lang PEQ1, BAE 1073, 1084, 1023, UK69 and many other classic British and German vintage units. Vintage Compressors begin with the life-like model of the FET76 and many more are soon to be available, FREE to all new and registered users of Antelope’s growing line of world class interfaces.

…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.

ARTIST FRIENDLY!

Zen Studio+ perfectly suits every pro working on-the-go

The interface features аn integrated Talkback function, allowing easy and fast communication between recordings artists, the engineer and the producer. Zen Studio+ offers dedicated Re-amp outs, making it the perfect choice not only for mobile recordists and traveling artists, but for pro guitarists as well.

Users can create up to four independent, realtime mixes, which are assignable to any output, including the two independent headphone outputs or the Monitor or Line outputs with Antelope’s proprietary routing matrix.

ZEN MEANS YOU ARE IN CONTROL

Access all Zen Studio+ features via desktop & mobile apps

Zen Studio+ is fully controllable via an intuitive desktop application for PC and Mac, offering flexible signal routing and customizable presets. IOS/Android Apps offer remote control for adjusting Mic Pre gain levels from anywhere in the studio, perfect for checking mic levels right at the source instruments.

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

Michael “Fish” Herring. An accomplished musician, Fish toured the world with artists from the unknown to the legendary. He has also appeared on records for artists such as Mariah Carey, Tupac, Nas, LeAnn Rimes, Siedah Garrett, Celine Dion and other superstars, as his discography continues to grow.

CLOCKING LIKE WE LOVE IT

Perfect sound through flawless clocking

The unbeatable clocking accuracy of Zen Studio+ is provided by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. Transients will shine like never before, you’ll achieve a stereo image with incomparable depth and detail. And that sparse and crystal clear high-end… Yes, we’re talking sonic perfection just like in our game-changing OCX HD and Trinity master clocks.
