The Antelope Audio Zen Tour Portable Interface is a perfect fit for any studio professional, or band who loves recording on the road. This compact, powerful interface is equipped with four switchable Mic/Line preamps, four additional line inputs, and can record up to 192 kHz/32-bit audio. Up to 16 additional channels of I/O can be added through the optical ADAT connection.

Custom FPGA technology allows Zen to perform with near zero-latency, and is the same technology used in their leading interfaces. No need to add-on a bunch of third party plug-ins, Zen Tour comes stocked with 50+ plug-in emulations of the industry's top gear.

With the Zen Tour interface, there is no need for a re-amp box. Two re-amp outputs are available on the front panel, making it very easy to vibe up your track by sending signal back through an amp or effects unit. Also on the front panel is easy access to four Hi-Z line inputs, two separate headphone outputs, and an internal talkback microphone.

The rear panel has four Mic/Line inputs, two independent speaker outputs for multiple monitor selection, S/PDIF, eight channel line out through a DB25 connection, and USB and Thunderbolt connectivity.

The Antelope Zen Tour has to be the most definitive piece of kit I've purchased in awhile. As the conduit to my DAW the level of conversion/monitoring is the BEST! You hear about the need for quality AD/DA but until you hear you truly don't understand. The Zen Tour has allowed me to attain the level of recording and mixing I've been trying to get to by giving me the perspective of my sound I need to translate my creative ideas to reality. Plus the continued development of the FPGA technology is nothing short of amazing. It's the gift which keeps on giving. The built in EFX are just as good if not better than the other big names.
The built in preamps are really quite good. Not sterile or brittle, but more like what you'd expect from a decent board.
Nothing but good things to say about it and highly recommend!
