Antelope Zen Tour Audio Interface
The Antelope Zen Tour Audio Interface is a king among portable tabletop interfaces with its astounding number of analog and digital I/O and integrated hardware-based FPGA effects.
Producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry. Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. However, unlike the solitude writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough. A cool, creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. This hi-end Thunderbolt & USB audio interface now offers an expanded FPGA FX library, designed exclusively for the Zen Tour and not available for any other desktop interface. Zen Tour gives you access to the largest selection of authentic real-time FX models of iconic gear from manufacturers like BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio and Lang.
For the first time ever, the Antelope Audio FPGA line of FX can be used via any DAW thanks to the new AFX2DAW plugin, which is among the top enhancements for Zen Tour in 2017. The interface can easily track a full band with its 4 studio class Mic/Line inputs, 4 extra Hi-Z,Line ins, 2 transformer reamps and built-in Talkback. Featuring both Antelopes legendary clocking and conversion, Zen Tour brings the top studio sound in its class and beyond. With Zen Tour Antelope are pushing the envelope once again. Antelope is offering not just a portable Thunderbolt & USB audio interface, but a pro piece, easily covering the needs of a small band. Zen Tour comes with 4 switchable Mic/Line inputs and 4 more HiZ/Line ins. Two reamp outs. Zen Tour borrows the powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Antelope Audio's top-selling pro studio devices. This game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities and the lowest latency levels on the market. In Zen Tour portability meets studio power like in no other device. No longer will portable interface stand for a starting point for your career, Antelope turned Zen Tour in a powerful tool for growing huge in the crazy music business!
The custom FPGA is a rock-solid platform for creating multiple, zero latency mixes and applying an exciting stack of effects. Forget about buying expensive plugins - Zen Tour offers something better. Get creative with Antelope's brand new hardware-based guitar amp & cab simulations, the classic Pultec EQ emulation and the extremely versatile AuraVerb reverb. The FPGA effects offer unbeatable authenticity and audio realism, comparable only to the sound and behavior of legendary hardware gear.
Zen Tour control is literally at your fingertips via the intuitive touch screen. The OS X and Windows compatible software control panel follows Antelope's innovative concept for networking. You can now manage all Zen Tour features from multiple computers in the same network. You can also utilize the iOS and Android mobile apps that will allow you to manage all Zen Tour features from your smartphone or tablet? While other portable interfaces have to go for either a decent amount of I/O channels or high-end DSP effects Zen Tour gives you both! With the 4 switchable Mic/Line and 4 HiZ/Line ins now come 8 analog outs, digital I/O on ADAT & S/PDIF, two independent headphone amps and two separate pairs of monitor outs. The FPGA powered ThunderboltTM and custom USB make the device not only lightning fast but compatible with any DAW as well.
