Description

The Antelope Audio Goliath is the most powerful audio interface on the market. Offering the biggest number of I/O’s available on the market, Goliath is the result of Antelope’s 20+ years of experience in digital audio, innovative clocking technologies and analog circuit design.

Connectable via blazing-fast Thunderbolt™, USB & 2 x MADI, Goliath houses a total of 36 analog ins and 32 analog outs, providing digital clarity and analog realism like no other audio interface out there.Antelope’s most powerful audio interface comes with an array of hardware-based audio effects, among which vintage guitar amps & cabs, AuraVerb reverb, legendary EQ and compressor emulations, plus our world-renowned Acoustically Focused Clocking technology.

Flawless clocking and unique analog circuitry brings pro sound to a new level. At Antelope Audio we love to say that best clock = best sound.So, no surprise that our 4th generation of Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management algorithms (AFC) is in charge of Goliath’s flawless clocking. The audio interface features the oven-controlled crystal oscillator you know from Antelope’s signature crystal-based master clocks.For optimum detail and sound stage, Goliath can be additionally synced to the extremely accurate Rubidium Atomic Clock – 10MX, and it can also be used as a master clock for two other devices via Word Clock Outs on BNC.

Realistic vintage FX. Process multiple zero latency mixes and get crazy creative with Goliath’s custom hardware-based effects.Goliath employs Antelope’s powerful FPGA-based DSP engine, a massive platform allowing you to process four zero latency mixers with custom effects.These include the stunning AuraVerb reverb and several modern and vintage hardware EQ and compressor models.Antelope’s new RealModel technology recreate not only the true sound of classic analog gear but its behavior and feel as well. Stacks of effects can be combined in custom FX Chains and saved as Presets.All our guitar amp and cabs simulations were developed in a partnership with leaders in guitar software Overloud Audio Tools, so we know guitar players will just love Goliath.

64 channels via Thunderbolt™. Goliath offers 36 Analog Inputs and 32 Analog Outputs with pristine AD/DA converters. These include 4 superb Instrument DI’s, 2 transformer Reamp Outs, 2 Headphone Outs with integrated Talkback on the front, 16-Channels of Class-A Mic Preamps, 2 sets of Stereo Inserts and a pair of mastering grade Monitor Outs on the back.The DB25 connectors feature 24 Outputs (1-8 can be level controlled for Surround Sound Mixing) and 16 additional Line Inputs, making Goliath an attractive solution for Hardware Inserts and Summing.Even more Analog I/O Channels can be added by connecting Antelope’s Orion32 or Orion32+ via MADI for a total of 64 Channels of Analog I/O simultaneously.

Touch and control. Reinvent your studio experience with Goliath’s advanced control options.All Goliath functions are accessible via its intuitive, high-resolution touch screen. All features of the audio interface can be also accessed via the OS X and Windows compatible Software Control Panel. Just like all new breed Antelope Audio devices. the Goliath follows our networking control concept. This means you can now access all Goliath features from multiple computers in the same network.

Reviews
Well done, Antelope!

This has been the biggest improvement to my studio since my first outboard channel strip. Right away I noticed my mixes were fuller and punchier, I think due to the outstanding clocking inside all Antelope’s products. But having the ability to use the 16 internal preamps with all their modeling software as well as hook all my outboard gear through the DSUB connections I am finally able to use my studio to it’s full potential. I’ve also been able to reuse some of my older ADAT hardware that’s been sitting unhooked in a rack for years. Tracking through the Goliath has been a total game changer, I am finding that the tones are fuller and louder with less signal level coming into my DAW than my previous interface. The DSP plug-ins that are included are really helping shape the sound while tracking and leave more time to be creative in the mixing process rather than fixing poorly tracked audio. The design and the metering just look great in my studio as well, since installing the Goliath, each one of my clients have noticed it and brought it up during a session.
