Antelope Orion 32 HD | Gen 3 AD/DA Converter
The Antelope Orion 32 HD | Gen 3 AD/DA Converter offers low-latency streaming of up to 64 simultaneous 24/192 audio channels via Thunderbolt and up to 32 channels over USB.
The Analog I/O is handled by 8x DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS monitoring outputs. Digital connectivity is ensured by 1x MADI, 2x ADAT, and 1x S/PDIF.
HEAR THE PAST. EXPECT THE FUTURE. IN REAL TIME
Orion 32+ | Gen 3 comes with a generous suite of real-time effects taken from the vast Antelope Audio FPGA FX library. You may purchase additional effects as you deem fit and invest in the AFX2DAW software bridge to use FPGA-processed, low-latency effects as inserts in your preferred DAW.
Ready? Set? Get rocking! Orion 32+ | Gen 3 comes with six absolutely essential audio effects from the Antelope library, running in real-time on a fast FPGA platform. Good for multiple applications, each effect boasts remarkable precision and sound quality – from Clear Q’ linearity all the way to AuraVerb’s advanced algorithms. These six tools alone can cover all your mixing and mastering needs.
EXEMPLARY CLOCKING & CONVERSION
Flawless clocking is our signature in the world of pro audio. And it’s going strong, thanks to our next-generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology & jitter management algorithm. A pair of Word Clock outputs turns the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 into a premium Master Clock for your entire studio, while a 10MHz input enables connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M & 10MX Atomic Clocks. With its brand-new AD/DA converters achieving an outstanding 129dB dynamic range (measured at the Monitor Outputs), Orion 32+ | Gen 3 carries forth our reputation for pristine conversion quality. Hear the true sound of music with both digital clarity and analog warmth.
SUB-MILLISECOND ROUNDTRIP LATENCY. A FACT.
For the Orion32+ | Gen3, Antelope Audio proudly claims sub-millisecond round-trip latency, with AD/DA conversion. We are happy to present the following measurements, made using our proprietary Windows Thunderbolt driver ver. 126.96.36.199 and the Oblique Audio RTL Utility. Stable playback and recording were achieved at the measured settings, in PreSonus Studio One 4, on an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU. Let the figures speak for themselves.
Orion 32+ | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity. A color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero latency monitoring is provided. The routing matrix, mixers, and control panel are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.
