Portable. The Antelope Zen Tour covers the needs of the whole band. Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. So producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry. Unlike the solitude that writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. And a creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough.

Unbeatable amount of I/O. With Zen Tour we have pushed 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 and a Talkback button on the front panel put it in the spotlight of portable interfaces.

Forget about latency. Custom FPGA will allow you to create and stream multiple complex mixes and process audio with zero latency. 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, thus the lowest latency levels on the market.

Portable guitar interface. Enjoy the true sound of classic guitar amps with Zen Tour’s hardware-based Vintage FX. Forget about buying expensive DSP plugins. Zen Tour offers something better. Get creative with Antelope’s brand new hardware-based FPGA effects. These include guitar amp & cab simulations, lengedary EQ and compressor emulations, plus the extremely versatile AuraVerb reverb. The FPGA effects offer unbeatable authenticity and realism. They not only sound truly analog, but also feel and behave like real hardware gear.

Enhanced connectivity. Have tons of gear hooked in – Zen Tour has quite a few options Some portable interfaces have to go for either a decent amount of I/O channels or high-end DSP effects. Zen Tour gives you all: 4 switchable Mic/Line 4 HiZ/Line ins 8 analog outs digital I/O on ADAT & S/PDIF two independent headphone amps two separate pairs of monitor outs. Plus, the FPGA powered Thunderbolt™ & the custom USB make the Zen Tour lightning fast and compatible with any DAW.

The Zen Tour ROCKS!!!
The Antelope Zen Tour has to be the most definitive piece of kit I've purchased in awhile. As the conduit to my DAW the level of conversion/monitoring is the BEST! You hear about the need for quality AD/DA but until you hear you truly don't understand. The Zen Tour has allowed me to attain the level of recording and mixing I've been trying to get to by giving me the perspective of my sound I need to translate my creative ideas to reality. Plus the continued development of the FPGA technology is nothing short of amazing. It's the gift which keeps on giving. The built in EFX are just as good if not better than the other big names.
The built in preamps are really quite good. Not sterile or brittle, but more like what you'd expect from a decent board.
Nothing but good things to say about it and highly recommend!
