Premium clarity from an AD/DA stereo converter and master clock
MFR# Pure 2

Product Description

Creating Premium Audio Easily

Antelope Audio’s Pure2 is a mastering grade 2-channel converter and master clock that builds off the successful model of the Eclipse 384. Delivering simply stunning audio via an A/D converter, D/A converter and a master clock featuring Antelopes signature Acoustically Focused Clocking technology, the Pure2 makes the world of mastering a process that anyone can attain in their own studio.

 

The Make Up Of Mastering

The conversion and AFC technology in the Pure2 is highly impactful and gives it a pristine sound. Additionally, the system also features masterful analog circuitry driven by a multi-stage power supply. Packed with Antelope Audio’s dual-DAC technology, with different chips for both the right and left channels, the Pure2 is able to gain exceptional imaging and separation. The system’s relay-based attenuator provides first-class transparency, which offers an exceptional audio experience when listening back on all types of monitors.

 

Clocking In: The Right Way

Featuring several Word Clock outputs, the Pure2 instantly adds an impressive master clock to your studio setup. Additionally, the system can be run with Antelope’s 10M Atomic Clock to provide your space with an even more stable method of clocking. With zero jitter and 100% accuracy, this combination of clocking will ensure that your projects have all the dynamic separation and clarity that you’ve always wanted.

Testimonials

"Pure 2 + 10mx has improved the performance of all my digital gear in the room.  Feels like a sheet has been lifted off my speakers.  Can really hear the space in the delay and reverb decays.   Definitely been leading to betting mix decisions.  My analog gear is happy too, with an A/D that's truly worthy."
- Chris Godbey

The Pure2 should really be advertised as a revolutionary product. Its sound is stunning. It has Neve’s sound without Neve color and just a little of the SSL clean surgical sound. It’s a great sound, it’s "totally" 1970’s “Analog” and contains all that sweetness and punch. It’s modern, warm, and transparent. The Soft Clipping (Overload Protection) was another BIG selling point. I’m old school and my mixes can be Hot as hell. I drove the Pure2 Hard and it’s sweet. Not quite like pushing tape to the edge, the tape gives and stuff gets blobby. The Pure2 adds some really cool harmonics, overtones, and saturation before it hits hardcore Grit. With anything, you can go too far.

Its modern fidelity and can be compared to the best on the market. I pared the Pure2 with a pair of Audeze LCD-2, Mix Cubes, crappy nearfields, and Sonarworks 4 to correct my monitors. It's apparent with the quality that a lot of time, hard work and thought went into this little unit.

The integration of a Trinity Master Clock is worth its weight in gold. I tied everything I could to Pure’s master clock. The Pure2 feeds the USB audio from the DAW (PT) and is Monitor Out 1. When I record the USB feeds the DAW. My Allen and Health SQ5 feeds the Pure2 through AES at 96K. The analog inputs are in the Patchbay and are used to track vocals with the Antelope Edge Strip modeling mic, or any mic/signal. The Toslink (Optical) feeds a Tascam DA 3000 mastering recorder. The analog outs will be used to bounce to ¼ tape for effect or mastering for Vinyl. One unit did all this!.

I go between the Pure, SQ, and Focusrite 18i20. There are grand differences between the Focusrite and Pure. The SQ on the other hand is great, clean, and punchy. The SQ is British and has an SSL'e VHD kinda sound which is great with Pure2. The Focusrite is Monitor 2 but there is so much of a difference that it's being replaced with an Antelope Synergy 8 Core. The Pure2 is a Mastering DAC and its easy to “hear” why.

Another bonus is Customer service. I called for something basic and the company answered the phone. The second time I left a message and within 30 minutes I had a callback. It was a pleasant experience. Not the case with some companies.

I own a very small home-based / mobile studio that specializes in new Jazz, Neo Soul, Blues based rock, and anything acoustic. I EQ at the source and it needs to sound like that coming out of the system. I’m old and heard a lot of systems, but it’s all in what you want/hear as an individual. If you want some of the best sounding gear try Antelope. Its good stuff, and a grand solution for my little set-up.

This Converter is literally the best converter i use for mixing. When i did a mix with this unit recently me and my client couldn't believe how clear and full the sound quality was. We loved it so much we remix the whole record with this unit. This unit made my ITB mixes have more clarity in my mixes.

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.
