STANDARD-SETTING CONVERSION AND CLOCKING
Antelope Audio interfaces are globally renowned for their industry-leading conversion and clocking and Orion 32+ Gen4 gives you the latest Antelope technology. Its AD/DA converters are capable of achieving up to 130dB dynamic range, ensuring Gen4 its leading position among 1U studio centerpieces. Antelope Audio’s signature 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology powers the high-performing conversion and the unit’s two Word Clock outputs are there to keep your whole studio in line. Additionally, the available 10MHz input is compatible with the cream of the crop of clocking – the unrivaled 10M & 10MX Atomic Clocks by Antelope Audio.
128-CHANNELS OF AUDIO VIA THUNDERBOLT AND MADI
Orion 32+ Gen4 can stream twice as many channels over Thunderbolt as its predecessor and has twice as much MADI connectivity, now at 128 channels for both. These significant upgrades allow for up to four units to be daisy-chained for 128 channels of AD/DA via a single computer connection. This makes the unit a top choice for large recordings, live sound applications, complex post-production setups and broadcast facilities. It’s a preferred companion to large mixing consoles, hardware effects processing chains, analog summing boxes, reel-to-reel setups, hardware synthesizers and pretty much anything else you can throw at it.
