Thank you for purchasing Discrete 4 from Antelope Audio.
Discrete 4 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. While they sound great on their own, the Antelope Audio FPGA engine is able to transform them into several classic units. It all happens in real time and with as authentic responsiveness as possible!
Discrete 4 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amp sims, transformer & tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear — now accessible in any DAW, thanks to the freshly introduced Antelope AFX2DAW Plugin.
Although Discrete 4 was designed to work with any microphone, it really shines with the Antelope Audio Edge and Verge modeling mics. They are designed to exclusively match the discrete preamp architecture of the interface, though they perform very well with other products.
Furthermore, the Antelope Audio real time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience, boasting a selection of classic Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, Guitar Amps & Cabinets, and our AuraVerb reverb. Use them within the Discrete 4 Control Panel, or in your favorite DAW with the new AFX2DAW Plug-in. Perform and record in real time with the FX, or apply them during production. The Discrete 4 ReAmp outputs let you re-amp recordings, or process your audio with outboard gear and route the resulting sound back to the computer.
Like most Antelope products, Discrete 4 is a rock-solid clocking solution itself. It borrows our 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology you may know from Antelope classics like the Trinity & OCX HD master clocks, or the Pure2 mastering converter. With two Word Clock outputs, the Discrete 4 is an exemplary master clock in itself, letting you distribute its clock signal across your studio.
The Monitoring features in Discrete 4 are very flexible and a breeze to set up. Create up to 4 individual monitoring mixes and send them to Headphones or Monitor Outputs, with or without FPGA FX. Our Vintage EQ, Compression, and authentic Guitar Amp emulations let recording artists experience fully convincing sound that comes as close to the real thing as possible.
With Discrete 4, users can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with all Antelope Audio FPGA-equipped interfaces. Sharing your own FX settings with other devices and users is quick and easy.
What’s more, the free-to-download Discrete 4 Remote App (Android & iOS) lets you adjust all microphone input levels and grants full control over Monitoring, and Headphone volumes. For the first time, musicians can control their own headphone volumes through their smartphones, too.
We hope you enjoy working with the Discrete 4 and take full advantage of all the possibilities it has to offer!
