Zen Tour offers an array of FPGA FX: Edge + Verge mic emulations, tape machine, preamps, eqs and compressors.

Thanks to our love for both analog detail and digital perfection, Zen Tour users can now access not only legendary guitar amps and cabs, but a plethora of classic studio gear as well — including the Reel to Reel tape machine developed by Igor Levin himself; an array of equalizers and compressors; but also a slew of cutting edge microphone emulations to be used by owners of the Antelope Audio Edge and/or Verge modeling mics.

Fits the whole band

Portable – covering the needs of the whole band

Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. So producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry.
Unlike the solitude that writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. And a creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough.

With Zen Tour we have pushed the envelope once again.
Antelope is offering not just a portable Thunderbolt™ & USB audio interface, but a pro piece, easily covering the needs of a small band.
Zen Tour comes with 4 switchable Mic/Line inputs and 4 more HiZ/Line ins.
Two reamp outs and a Talkback button on the front panel put it in the spotlight of portable interfaces.

“Compressor world is mad fun. Antelope Audio recently put out a new batch of compressors and the vintage models look luxurious and the sound is sticky and gooey in the best possible way. It’s like Christmas every time Antelope announces a pack of goodies.”

FORGET ABOUT LATENCY

Custom FPGA will allow you to create and stream multiple complex mixes and process audio with zero latency.

Zen Tour borrows the powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Antelope Audio’s top-selling pro studio devices.
This game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities, thus the lowest latency levels on the market.

Guitarists are very much in Antelope Audio’s target: the built-in DSP effects include guitar amp and cab emulations, as well as an EQ and reverb.”
