Antelope Audio Orion Studio rev. 2017

Powerfully advanced, multi-function USB/Thunderbolt studio interface with updated converters, DSP processing and carbon-gray finish free suite of over 50 proprietary plug-ins
MFR# Orion Studio, rev. 2017

Product Description


The Antelope Audio Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is a full recording studio that fits into one rack space. For 2017, Orion Studio got brand new AD converters, raising its dynamic range to an industry best 124 dB and features superior low latency performance.

It is equipped with 12 Class-A studio grade preamps, and one of the only interfaces can stand-alone record a full band right out of the box. Additional I/O can be added through its two ADAT connections, allowing up to 32 channels via Thunderbolt and 24 channels on the USB connection. Orion Studio Rev. 2017 can record up to 192 kHz/24-bit audio for the highest quality recording possible.

Front panel offers easy access to four microphone preamps, also with ¼” inputs. No need for a re-amp box with Orion Studio Rev. 2017, the front panel has two transformer re-amp outputs, making it easy to send signal back through a different amp for extra character. This is a great way to add more depth to a guitar track, bass, vocals, or drums.

The rear panel is loaded with two, eight channel DB25 line out connections, making it very easy to install to a patchbay or directly to your console. Two optical connections for connecting external ADAT devices. Two separate master grade speaker outs independent from the audio channel line outs, speaker source is selectable by a button on the front panel. S/PDIF and word clock connections make seamless integration with other digital signals or external clocks. Lastly, there are two insert points for external dynamic processing.

Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is designed with FPGA technology, and is the key to having nearly zero latency, and the ability to monitor plug-ins while tracking. Also included, is over 50 Real-Time FX models of legendary EQs, compressors, guitar amps & cabs. Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is powered by the acclaimed 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, offering incomparable stability, sonic accuracy and audio detail.

Short learning curve up front, but now that I'm more familiar with the software, the Orion Studio sounds fantastic and is wonderful to use. Quite flexible too, I've still barely scratched the surface!

By Thomas E on April 1, 2019

This interface is incredibly flexible and sounds fantastic. Two reamp outputs are a huge plus.

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.

I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
