Description

The Antelope Audio Orion32 HD is the newest addition to the Orion family. Compatible with any DAW on the market via HDX port or USB3, this new Pro Tools HD and Native interface offers everything Antelope Audio stands for. Zero latency Monitoring, I/O streaming of 64 channels 192 kHz audio, Antelope’s industry-leading clocking, and pristine AD/DA conversion. Orion32 HD’s analog I/O is handled by 8 DB25 connectors, accompanied by MADI, ADAT and S/PDIF connectivity. Orion32 HD features a fine selection of vintage FX powered by Antelope Audio’s innovative Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology bringing modeling of legendary vintage gear to a whole new level.

FAST AND FURIOUS

Like its predecessors, Orion32 HD is a versatile audio interface, which works like a charm with any DAW on the market. It enables you not only to stream an astounding 64 channels of audio when tracking, but also allows for multiple monitor mixes. When monitoring, the sound is pleasing, combining transparent detail in a very natural way, like all things Antelope. Independent software mixers, integrated hardware-based FPGA vintage effects, it’s all there, with more connectivity options than ever.

Perfect sound through flawless clocking

The unbeatable clocking accuracy of Orion32 HD is provided by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. Antelope’s clocking is known the world over with a 20 year reputation for excellence in both stability and sonic improvement. Transients will shine like never before, you’ll achieve a stereo image with incomparable depth and detail. And that sparse and crystal clear high-end… Yes, we’re talking sonic perfection just like in our game-changing OCX HD and Trinity master clocks.

FPGA POWERED

The proprietary FPGA is the heart and soul of all Antelope Audio interfaces and is included inside Orion 32 HD. Allowing you to use Antelope’s integrated and ever-growing library of hardware-based vintage EQs, compressors and of course AuraVerb. The exquisite collections of Vintage EQ’s include authentically models of Lang PEQ1, BAE 1073, 1084, 1023, Helios69 and many other classic British and German vintage units. Vintage Compressors begin with the life-like model of the FET76 and many more are soon to be available, FREE to all new and registered users of Antelope’s growing line of world class interfaces.

Reviews
Perfect fit for my hybrid rig

My studio recently made the switch to a hybrid rig with a console. We do a lot of live band recording, so most of the time we aren't using too many inputs but we'll have a lot of outboard gear hooked up. 32 channels seemed ideal for the console and outboard I/O, every time we went searching for a new interface the quality and price range led us back to the Orion 32 HD. We were using a Digidesign 192 I/O before switching to the Orion. I've always been happy with the sound of the 192, but we needed to expand the I/O and the 192 is outdated with newer versions of pro tools, it made sense to make the switch rather than adding on. The Orion also gave us double the I/O at half the price of a new HD I/O from Avid. The first session we recorded on the new rig was the best we'd done to date. The Orion was so much tighter and cleaner sounding than the 192s. I haven't heard them in comparison to the HD I/O, but I'm really happy with the sound of the Orion. The onboard DSP made it a smooth transition from our old HD rig. Pro Tools 12 HD native with the Orion is running and sounding better than our HD3 System and Pro Tools 8HD.
