Description

The Antelope Audio Discrete 4 is a an audio interface featuring four console grade, six transistor, fully discrete microphone preamps with high quality conversion. The internal preamps can handle up to 121 dB of dynamic range, and with the use of FPGA FX, can be turned into authentic models of the industries top Tube, Transformer and discrete preamps.

The Antelope AFX platform is an ever expanding hardware modeling engine. Included with the Discrete 4 are a variety of preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of vintage EQ’s and compressors. All accessible within your DAW via the ConnectAFX plug-in.

Discrete 4 offers a total of 14 inputs and 20 outputs through its two ADAT connections and onboard S/PDIF connection. Right out of the box comes with four analog inputs that can accept mic or line level, four analog line outputs for monitoring and cue system setups, and two re-amp outputs to send any line level signal back through an amp or loudspeaker.

An Entire Signal Path of Customizable Sonic Excellence

With the internal DSP and FPGA FX system, both the engineer and performer can monitor classic microphone preamps, EQs, compressors and FX in real time. You can choose to print these settings in the recording process, or have the ability to record dry and add all the FXs back in during the mixing process. The entire signal path was designed for optimal level with any microphone. Take full advantage of these amazing features by adding the new Antelope Audio Verge and Edge microphones, which were specially designed for the Discrete series preamps.

Monitor FX During Tracking – ConnectAFX Plugin For The Mix

Right out of the box, you will have access to 50+ FPGA plug-ins. These plug-ins can be recorded and monitored in real time through the use of internal DSP, offering no latency to the engineer or artist. Use them with Discrete 4 through EasyPanel or in a DAW via the new ConnectAFX plug-in. Due to the component-based modeling platform, they sound and respond just like the real hardware.

Transform your guitar rig into some of the most iconic vintage amps and cabinets on the market through the front panel hi-Z input. You can then add vintage compression, EQ, or studio effects which can all be monitored in real time with zero latency. You can choose to only monitor these effects and just record the direct input, allowing unlimited flexibility later in the mix.

Remote Control

Most all of the features of the Discrete 4 can be controlled through a downloadable remote app. Including input levels, talkback levels, and monitoring and headphone levels. Musicians can control the sound of their headphone mix through their phone, allowing the engineer to keep a proper eye on the recording levels.

Free FX Library Included

Including exclusives from BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf and Lang
