Adding further value to your investment, the Оrion Studio Synergy Core includes a compelling library of 50 real-time studio effects, meticulously modelled after their hardware originals. It’s all happening inside your audio interface with the lowest latency possible thanks to FPGA’s massive parallel computing capabilities, DSP processing, and fast Thunderbolt™ connectivity. The library can be expanded to include any effects you choose from then Antelope Audio web store.
Thunderbolt 3 Certified & USB Compatible
Thunderbolt 3 is the fastest, most versatile data connection available now. Orion Studio Synergy Core underwent a rigorous certification process to ensure operating system compatibility and stability. Not up to speed with Thunderbolt 3? Worry not, the interface is backwards-compatible with Thunderbolt 2, and Antelope has also left the USB 2.0 port intact – it’s right where you’d expect it to be. This way, the Orion Studio Synergy Core works with any DAW, on any modern Windows or macOS computer.
Record and monitor with maxed-out effects chains at high sample rates and low buffer sizes without taxing your CPU! You can enjoy Latency-Free Direct Monitoring over 4 independent internal mixers with 32 assignable inputs and stereo outputs.
12 Discrete Preamps
The outcome of a long, hard look into iconic microphone preamp circuitry, Antelope's discrete transistor preamps honor the finest audio engineering practices while sounding absolutely exceptional. They also bring out the best in Antelope's Edge & Verge modeling condenser microphones, for vocal and instrument recording that truly keeps up with the times.
All Orion Studio Synergy Core analog inputs have the Direct-In feature to let you bypass preamp controls and record line-in signals directly into the converters. Get ready to hear the truth!
Immense Analog & Digital Flexibility
There’s no task too big or too small for the Orion Studio Synergy Core. Record high-impedance instruments, such as the electric guitar, through four Hi-Z inputs and reamp DI tracks through the special purpose ReAmp outputs. Take advantage of all 16 line outputs (on DB25 connectors). Handle digital audio via S/PDIF and ADAT. Freely route all incoming and outgoing audio from an intuitive software Routing Matrix. Then hear the result from two pairs of headphones or studio monitors – simultaneously, if you need to.
Any Audio Anywhere
The Software Control Panel is the “mediator” between the Orion Studio Synergy Core and your DAW. Handle gain adjustments, signal routing, effects processing, mixing and metering from a single window. Route the resulting audio into your DAW for recording in formats of your choice, such as multi-track, stem, and two-channel stereo. Gone DAW-less? Route any audio to any output and take it to the recording medium of your choice.
- Immediate access to any parameter
- Color-Coded Routing Matrix with User Labels and Undo/Redo functions
- Four 32-Channel, low-latency Software Mixers
- Save and Load custom presets
- Single-window workflow
130 DB Dynamic Range
With an array of 12 audiophile-grade DACs, capable of up to 192kHz sample rates and 130dB dynamic range conversion* each, Orion Studio Synergy Core is an AD/DA powerhouse! Capture your voice, instruments or mixing desk outputs exactly as they sound, with immaculate precision that’s as flawless as it’s unforgiving.
* Measured at the monitor outputs.
Mic Modeling Ready
The Orion Studio Synergy Core’s Accusonic 3D modeling engine lets you transform the Antelope Audio Edge and Verge modeling microphones into expensive-sounding vintage replicas. Shape the final sound with complete control over proximity effect and change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and rare microphones as you monitor and record live, bringing out the musician’s finest performance.
*Available with Antelope Audio Edge & Verge modeling microphones
