Antelope Orion 32 AD/DA Converter

The Antelope Orion 32 AD/DA Converter is a versatile multi-channel AD/DA converter and USB interface offering low latency USB on Mac and PC, exceptional routing & mixing flexibility, and Antelope clocking for increased sonic accuracy, all in a 1 RU frame.

Antelope Orion32 is a 32-channel A/D & D/A converter and audio master clock, supporting both MADI and USB interfaces, clocked by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology.

Orion32 allows 192 kHz I/O streaming of 32-channel digital audio via USB, providing seamless connectivity to any USB-enabled DAW, computer or iPad. The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its Fiber Optic MADI I/O connections, which can be used to connect with any suitably equipped MADI device.

Orion32 also supports ADAT protocol by offering 16 I/O channels, for even greater compatibility with a large number of audio devices. The multi-channel converter inputs and outputs pass the analog signal through 8 D-SUB 25 I/O connectors.

Low latency USB on Mac and PC
Using Antelope Audio custom-built USB chip, Orion32 achieves extremely low latency levels even when streaming simultaneously 32 channels in and 32 out. The latency performance varies between only 1 and 6.5 ms for different hardware and software configurations.

Exceptional routing & mixing flexibility
With its seamless digital routing and mixing options, the Orion32 offers extended flexibility. The routing feature allows sound engineers, for example, to send the AD signal to both MADI and USB interfaces, for live mixing and monitoring. The device is managed through a user-friendly desktop application available for both Windows and OS X. Moreover it is equipped with a zero-latency mixer and five preset buttons for fast and easy recall of favorite settings

Antelope clocking for increased sonic accuracy
Orion32 perfectly addresses a sound engineer’s need for high quality, clean and transparent conversion, combining the efficiency of MADI and USB interfaces with the perfection of Antelope clocking.

In addition to being an extremely high quality audio converter, Orion32 is also an audio master clock. The Orion 32 employs Antelope’s proprietary 4th generation of AFC and oven controlled oscillator - both technologies that made Antelope Audio clocks an industry leader for accuracy and sound quality in recording, mastering and post-production facilities around the world. The four word clock outs, together with the 10 MHz input, make Orion 32 ideally suited to be in the center of any project or high-end studio.

1U eco-friendly design
Orion32 is packaged in a 1U enclosure with an eco-friendly power consumption of only 20 Watts. In addition to saving rack space and having very low heating levels, Orion32 comes with an extremely reasonable pricing affordable even for a small home studio.

What We Think

Antelope Audio has built their empire on two things - their impeccable digital clocks, and the Orion32. This piece breaks all of the rules in digital interfacing and conversion, offering an unparalleled 64 channels of conversion (32-in, 32-out) in a very compact 1RU footprint. Antelope's already great clocking is onboard, but like all Antelope converters and interfaces, they can connect and control the mighty Isochrone 10M Atomic Clock for otherworldly performance of an already stellar machine. Where Antelope really hit the ball out of the park is the capability of low latency performance via USB 2.0 connectivity. Their proprietary driver allows for performance once thought impossible. And if you want to go with even lower latency, you have the ability to connect through MADI to another interface (PCIe or Ethernet). Things to be aware of with the unit are the sample rate / track count / latency balances for both the MADI and USB 2.0 connections. Higher sample rates produce lower latencies, but also lower track counts. But, if you're limited to 32 overall channels (88.2k/96k via both MADI and USB 2.0), you can still record 30 and monitor via 2.

The new Antelope MP32 mic preamp and Satori Monitor Controller / Summing Amp work seamlessly with the Orion32 to make a complete studio system from bow to stern.

You'll need to plan out your setup with the Orion32, but that's what we're here for! Give one of our sales staff a call at 888-228-4530 to get special bundle pricing for your new Antelope Orion32 based studio. You'll be glad that you did.

Amazing converter at a steal February 6, 2016
Reviewer: Andrew S from Dumont, NJ United States  
The studio I freelance out of had gotten this in order to use more of the Amek console that it has and you could immediately hear a huge difference in quality for the better. This thing is great and the latency that it has is pretty much non-existent even though it's through USB.
