Antelope Audio Zen Tour Portable Audio Interface (Demo Deal) – No Longer Available

Thunderbolt and USB portable audio interface with a suite of proprietary plug-ins
MFR# Zen Tour

Product Description

Producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry. Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. However, unlike the solitude writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough. A cool, creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. Everything your band needs with the Antelope Audio Zen Tour, they are pushing the envelope once again. Antelope is offering not just a portable Thunderbolt & USB audio interface, but a pro piece, easily covering the needs of a small band. Zen Tour comes with 4 switchable Mic/Line inputs and 4 more HiZ/Line ins. Two reamp outs and a Talkback button on the Front Panel put it in the spotlight of portable interfaces.

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.

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.
