Orion Studio Rev. 2017
Since its release in 2015 Orion Studio has become one of the biggest stars in the Antelope Audio line of ThunderboltTM & USB audio interfaces. And now we made it even better. With 12 Class-A Mic Pres make it's one and only piece of gear you'll need to record a full band and do it like a pro. For 2017 Orion Studio got brand new AD converters, raising its dynamic range to an industry best 124 dB and features superior low latency performance. Now coming in a gorgeous carbon grey faceplate, Orion Studio has a ton of new features inside its powerful Control panel and FPGA engine.
Just like Zen Tour and Goliath, Orion Studio features the full array of real-time FPGA powered vintage FX. This best-selling interface also includes Antelope's traditionally stunning AD/DA conversion, powered by our very own, world-renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology for jitter management.
Edge Duo The ultimate microphone to complete your mic locker
his high-quality dual-membrane large-diaphragm condenser microphone captures vocals and instruments with pristine clarity, depth and detail, making it the perfect starting point for emulating a plethora of timeless studio microphones.
A legendary library
Edge Duo is able to call on an extensive and ever-expanding collection of classic mic emulations, with 11 legendary microphone models already available and 7 more soon to be released. All have been meticulously measured from carefully selected original examples in one of the most respected facilities in Germany. Find the full list of Edge Duo emulations below.
Housed in a specially designed low-resonance body with a sleek matte black finish, Edge Duo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered dual-membrane capsule. It provides an incredibly smooth, rich and organic response that the powerful Antelope Audio modeling engine can shape into the true sound of some of the most expensive and sought-after microphones in the history of audio recording.
Multi-dimensional mic modeling
Edge Duo's dual-membrane capsule design feeds two separate XLR output channels via the included Y-cable. The signal from each membrane is then individually processed and recombined, delivering the most precise mic modeling on the market. This approach not only means that users can vary the polar pattern from within the plug-in, even after recording. It also allows the Edge Duo to accurately emulate the characteristic on- and off-axis response of each mic for true multi-dimensional mic modeling.
The Edge emulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope's own precision mic preamps and converters. For maximum accuracy, Edge Duo can be used with any of Antelope Audio's mic preamp-equipped interfaces, whose built-in FPGA processing capabilities allow real-time vintage mic emulation.
However, Edge Duo also includes Antelope's native mic emulation plug-ins, meaning you can use any third-party audio interface and even change modeling settings after recording. Available in VST, AU and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope's native AFX plug-ins* provide everything we've come to expect from their industry-leading FPGA FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations.
