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.
Packing 124dB Dynamic range
NOW WITH ULTRA-FAST WINDOWS THUNDERBOLT™ DRIVER FOR SUB-MILLISECOND
Zen Tour offers an array of FPGA FX: Edge + Verge mic emulations, tape machine, preamps, eqs & compressors.
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.
4 Mic/Line & 4 Line/Hi-Z ins
4 mic pres & 4 line/hi-z ins with phantom power, 8 analog outs, 2 headphone and 2 reamp outs, plus an array of digital I/O
Guitar amp modeling and effects processing with virtually 0 latency
Advanced Remote Apps
Control Zen Tour from multiple computers or via mobile and desktop apps
THUNDERBOLT™ & USB
32 channels via Thunderbolt™ and 24 on USB for zero-latency audio streaming
VINTAGE GUITAR FX
FPGA based hardware models of vintage gear and equalizers, at no cost
24-bit, 192 kHz audio and Antelope’s signature flawless conversion
Unbeatable amount of I/O
for a device of that size.
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.
Taking advantage of high-speed Thunderbolt™, the afx2daw plug-in lets you use your real-time effects inside most popular DAWs, providing native workflow while keeping all the processing inside the interface.
afx2daw is available as a separate purchase from our software store, for macOS and Windows.
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.”
Have tons of gear hooked in – Zen Tour has quite a few options
Some portable interfaces have to go for either a decent amount of I/O channels or high-end DSP effects.
Zen Tour gives you all:
4 switchable Mic/Line
4 HiZ/Line ins
8 analog outs
digital I/O on ADAT & S/PDIF
two independent headphone amps
two separate pairs of monitor outs.
Plus, the FPGA powered Thunderbolt™ & the custom USB make the Zen Tour lightning fast and compatible with any DAW.
Rediscover your studio workflow
With the advanced Zen Tour control options
All of Zen Tour’s features are controllable via its high-resolution touch screen.
The portable audio interface can be also managed via the Antelope Audio’s Software Control Panel for OS X and Windows and via Android and iOS mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. So both the producer and the recording artists can control Zen Tour.
Thanks to our innovative networking control concept you can now access all Zen Tour features from multiple computers in the same network.
