Antelope Audio Zen Tour Synergy Core Thunderbolt 3/USB Audio Interface

More powerful version of the Zen Tour desktop Thunderbolt/USB audio recording interface with 4x DSP plus 2x FPGA Synergy Core low-latency effects and audio engine processors and improved AD/DA conversion
MFR# Zen Tour Synergy Core

Product Description

The Antelope's Audio Zen Tour Synergy Core is a state-of-the-art professional desktop recording interface. Equipped with multiple ARM DSP and FPGA chips in custom configurations, the Zen Tour Synergy offers twice as much processing power as previous generations. Combined with studio-quality preamps, world-class AD/DA converters and support for new Synergy Core-exclusive effects, the Zen Tour Synergy sets a new standard for desktop recording. Zen Tour Synergy Core Audio Interface brings the following upgrades from the original Zen Tour:

  • 4x DSP + 2x FPGA Synergy Core low-latency effects and audio engine processors
  • Improved AD/DA conversion – up to 130 dB DNR, on par with Orion Studio Synergy Core
  • 2x increase in effects instances (32 channels with 8 FX each at sample rates up to 192 kHz)
  • Thunderbolt 3 & USB 2.0 cross-platform connectivity for Mac/Windows
  • Support for new Synergy Core-exclusive effects like Auto-Tune Synergy, Opto-2A, MES-432C, Comp-4K-Bus and others
  • 8 DC-coupled analog outputs for CV applications like controlling modular synthesizers
  • Discrete microphone preamps with up to 75 dB of gain
  • Enhanced thermal performance

UNPARALLELED PROCESSING POWER

The Zen Tour Synergy Core is equipped with four ARM DSP and two FPGA chips for low-latency effects processing. Now with double the processing power, Zen Tour Synergy Core supports up to 32 channels at sample rates up to 192 kHz.

Zen Tour Synergy Core comes bundled with 36 Synergy Core FX to help you give your mixes that professional studio polish. Choose from 2 preamps, 4 EQs, 5 compressors, 22 guitar amps and cabs and more. Best of all, Zen Tour Synergy Core also supports new Synergy Core-exclusive effects like Auto-Tune Synergy, Opto-2A, MES-432C and Comp-4K-Bus.

STUNNING SOUND QUALITY

With four fully discrete, ultra-linear microphone preamps, the Zen Tour Synergy Core packs the sound of an analog recording console into a highly portable package. Improved AD/DA converters offer up to 130 dB of headroom—the same as Antelope’s flagship Orion Studio Synergy Core. Combined with Antelope’s industry-leading clocking, Zen Tour Synergy Core offers pristine AD/DA conversion for artifact-free recording and critical listening. Best of all, with Thunderbolt™ 3 and USB 2.0 cross-platform connectivity for Mac and Windows, Zen Tour Synergy Core easily integrates with other systems for super-simple collaboration.

VERSATILE CONNECTIVITY

When inspiration strikes, you need to capture it quickly. That’s why Zen Tour Synergy Core is equipped with a wide range of versatile inputs and outputs to help you adapt to any situation. With four switchable mic/line inputs, four instrument inputs and two dedicated reamp outputs, Zen Tour Synergy Core makes it easy to capture the perfect take. Quickly dial in artist and engineer mixes using one monitor output and two headphone outputs.

Eight DC-coupled analog outputs are perfect for CV applications like controlling modular synthesizers. Expand your I/O even further with ADAT and SPDIF connections for an additional 10 inputs and 10 outputs.

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.
