Antelope Zen Q USB Synergy Core Audio Interface

The Antelope Zen Q USB Synergy Core Audio Interface is designed to help you grow to a bigger setup without losing the desktop size format, AND now with USB! The ultra-linear preamps and pristine AD/DA conversion give you professional quality in the studio or on the go – all in a compact package.

With its pairs of headphone outputs, preamps, and instrument inputs, the Zen Q interface was built with collaboration in mind. Flexible routing and switchable inputs unlock a wealth of possible setups. Four simultaneous Hi-Z instruments and two pairs of monitors? No problem. Four balanced analog outboard inserts? You got it. If you need even more inputs, hook up any ADAT-compatible preamp with up to eight additional channels, and you’re ready to record a full band live. The stereo input and output over S/PDIF can be used to add an outboard effect, record a digital hardware synth, or send a high-quality clocking signal to the rest of your studio.

Rise Above the Sound You Know
The Zen Q Synergy Core shrinks the gap in sound quality between artists, with access to premium studios and home creators. The pristine sound is due to a combination of professional-grade AD/DA converters and Antelope Discrete ultralinear preamps that share circuits with legendary American and British consoles. The standout sonic quality of the device would not be possible without the main pillar of the Antelope Audio sound—the 64-bit AFC clocking technology from the company's high-end master clocks. It is employed in prestigious studios around the world and has been trusted with the scoring of Hollywood blockbusters.

Full Production Pack, from the Get-Go
Zen Q Synergy Core comes with 37 premium analog-modeled effects that will help you create stunning, sonically rich productions. Aside from the exclusive compressors, EQs, and preamps, the interface comes with 22 guitar amps and cabs, a guitar tuner, and a signature reverb that are all ready to be applied in real time to your tracking and mixing session. The Synergy Core effects processing allows you to stack up your chain with many effect instances while monitoring through the interface without fear of overloading. At any time, you can expand your effects collection by purchasing more classic go-to units, true rarities never before recreated in digital form, and 3rd party effects like Antares Auto-Tune Synergy.

Create from Anywhere, Anytime
The Zen Q interface is optimized for ultralow-latency recording, high-resolution playback, creative beatmaking, and podcasting from virtually anywhere. With just the included USB cable, you can power the Zen Q Synergy Core from your computer and use it to its full potential without having to carry a dedicated power supply with you.

Better Recording and Producing Workflow
Every feature available to you in the interface's control panel has been added to improve the important aspects of your workflow. Since DAW monitoring inevitably adds latency, you can monitor directly through the interface to reduce delay to the absolute minimum. With the routing options, you can easily set up a near-zero latency mix and stack it with your favorite Synergy Core effects without fear of overloading the onboard platform. Dedicated signal metering is available for both input and output levels on the front-panel display and in the software control panel.

Smart Connectivity in a Small Package
The two XLR-1/4" combo input jacks give you the flexibility to choose between Antelope's Discrete mic preamps and line / Hi-Z inputs; they are easily configurable via the control panel. The front panel offers two 1/4" inputs, which can be used to record line-level sources or Hi-Z instruments. The four 1/4" TRS DC-coupled balanced outputs (two monitor and two line) allow you to send the signal from the professional-grade D/A converter to separate destinations. Use one set for your main monitors and the other for a feed to analog outboard gear. Plus, there are two separate 1/4" headphone outputs.
