i love this thing

I had been eyeing the Antelope Orion convertor for many years and I finally pulled the trigger. I was really excited that they dropped a USB3 that allowed the full 32 in/out, that way I could fully utilize this with my console. I gotta say, when I first ran audio through it, it was pretty jaw dropping. Getting this converter was the missing piece to get my records sounding like records I fawn over. I have been using this very regularly since April and have had zero audio quality issues with this. The latency in relaxed is virtually unnoticeable when playing guitar through an amp sim in my DAW and when bumped up to extreme low, I feel no latency playing. A+++++ in sound quality.

I have tried out all the included plugins that came with it and am really impressed. I really like being able to patch them into my session like a hardware insert to utilize them. Very pleased. The one ding is the getting the control software to load all the time is hit and miss. I randomly lost my inputs during a recording session and after debugging, I had to reload my saved session settings. Since then, I have gotten in the habit to open the Antelope software, load my default setting then get my session started. Doing that has alleviated many headaches.

I love this unit.

the depth of sound and clarity is amazing. It is like hearing sound for the 1st time. Even my older songs after rendering have a better sound, and stereo image to them. The only thing I do not care for is that the software mixer cannot integrate with a DAW controller. I have used large format consoles for recording for years so this is a VERY big adjustment, and I do not care for it at all. I would love for there to be a couple of improvements in the mixer software to make it a more console like or even DAW like. Channel link that lets faders stay in the positions I choose. independent reverbs and delays would be very nice with additional mic sends for better headphone mixing, as well as the fore mentioned DAW controller integration. This is an incredible product and you will be NOTHING but happy with your purchase!

I bought this interface for analog summing through a 32 channel passive summing box that I've built. I use a pair of Neve 1073 preamps to re-establish the gain level of the sum, bouncing it back to a stereo track. As I'm able to increase the gain output of each stem being spread out through these 32 crystal clear converters, it beautifully adds all the depth, definition and dimension that it is just impossible to attain from ITB mix. I haven't got the time to go much deeper on the FXs, but they do sound great from what I've tried so far.
Designed to allow very complex configuration and routings possibilities, the control panel doesn't seem very friendly to the beginner. Neither does the driver integration with the DAW. But I like it. :-)
If it had a monitor level pot and headphones outputs it would be just too perfect to be true.
Worth every penny invested. SOUNDS AMAZING. I couldn't be happier.
Thanks Jeff Ehrenberg for the magnificent assistance!
