Together We Create

Antelope Audio is initiating a campaign called Together we create to support the audio community with activities aiding creativity and offers to ease the music-making journey while staying safe at home.

Stay Home and Mix With Doctor Mix

Clearly this is an unprecedented time in our collective history, one which will be long remembered. As Antelope Audio collectively continues to navigate its way through today’s troubled waters, it is here to help — hence working tirelessly to launch activities and offers to ease the music-making journey while encouraging people to stay home, be creative, and not lose faith in things getting back to normal, ultimately. Until then, stay safe and keep making music. After all, making music is something people do together. Music connects. Music overcomes distance. Music is capable of transcending social distancing, which we all respect during these trying times… Together we create.

Many musicians have already turned their home into a studio space while quarantined during the Coronavirus crisis. Creatively, though, these challenging times are an opportunity to produce something longer-lasting and more meaningful. Music has always managed to bring people together through good times and bad. “Boat of Souls” is a joint effort between songwriters, artists, and musicians to create a song that will inspire and bring people together. The theme of the song is: “We are all souls in one boat and together we can overcome this challenge.” Joining the LITTLE BIG BEAT STUDIOS project, Antelope Audio is on a quest to prove that social distancing does not necessitate losing the connection between individuals, and everyone is invited. As a starting point, original drum beat, guitar harmony, and rhythm samples created by LITTLE BIG BEAT STUDIOS will be uploaded to their website, where anyone can download them as a basis for creating their recordings. Samples and video contributions can be sent to boatofsouls@littlebigbeat.com. But not everyone has access to the tools needed to take part, and, as an acknowledgment, Antelope Audio has prepared a limited number of emergency recording kits, available on a first-come, first-served basis to those who are really in need of support. Stay tuned for more information on the project and how anyone can participate here.

Antelope Audio has also announced some supportive offers that are available during the Together we create campaign. Anyone purchasing a Discrete 4 Synergy Core, Discrete 8 Synergy Core, Orion Studio Synergy Core, Zen Studio Synergy Core, or Orion 32+ | Gen 3 audio interface between April 1 and May 31, 2020 will receive a Together we create voucher valued at $1,000.00 USD/€1,000.00 EUR. Valid until May 31, 2020, this can be redeemed against additional real-time effects purchases from the expandable library of the audio interface in question, kickstarting an Antelope Audio music-making journey as a truly experimental experience. Existing owners of those audio interfaces can benefit from a $200.00 USD/€200.00 EUR discount against additional real-time effects from the expandable library of the audio interface in question with a minimum combined purchase value of $300.00 USD/€300.00 EUR by applying the WECREATE code — active until April 30, 2020 — at checkout.

14X10 BUS-POWERED THUNDERBOLT 3 AUDIO INTERFACE WITH ONBOARD FX

Zen Go Synergy Core, introduced earlier this year to widespread critical acclaim as the high-end professional audio equipment manufacturer’s first bus-powered, truly portable (4 x 8 USB-C) audio interface, Antelope Audio is proud to announce the upcoming availability of its Zen Q Synergy Core bigger brother — effectively empowering small- to mid-sized studio setups with high-end technology to take the next step in their creative quest for high-definition audio as a 14 x 10 desktop bus-powered audio interface with ThunderboltTM 3 connectivity, combining Antelope Audio’s acclaimed AD/DA converters, Discrete ultra-linear mic pre-amps, and 64-bit AFCTM (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology with impressive I/O capabilities and an accomplished collection of real-time-processed analog-modeled effects.

Antelope Audio Zen Q Synergy Core 58

Realizing recording, mixing, and playback at up to 24-bit/192kHz, Zen Q Synergy Core clearly combines all the core performance qualities for which Antelope Audio’s acclaimed audio interfaces are known — class-leading AD/DA converter chips granting (up to) 127dB of headroom with undeniable definition; two ultra-linear pre-amps featuring true console-grade circuitry imparting warmth and capturing the natural details of any recorded instrument or voice; and proprietary 64-bit AFCTM and jitter management algorithm enabling efficient AD/DA conversion with increased sound width, separation, and detail — to achieve a sonically-precise studio sound while reaping the benefits of seamless workflow from any desktop-based setup.

ZQ Front Square
Antelope Audio Zen Q Synergy Core 59

Signature Auraverb (reverb) included, Zen Q Synergy Core comes complete with a virtual library of 37 free effects for its onboard Synergy Core proprietary platform, with real-time effects processing powered by dual DSP (Digital Signal Processing) chips and a single FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) chip to deliver direct hardware monitoring with imperceptible latency. An abundance of analog-modeled compressors, equalizers, and mic pre-amps, as well as guitar cabs and amps for dialing in the perfect guitar tone — everything needed to capture and process audibly rich and dynamic sound — are always available as a result. It is perfectly possible to expand that creative collection courtesy of 50 optional effects — encompassing emulations of classic gear and third-party specialist effects (including Antares’ Auto-Tune Synergy, Grove Hill’s Liverpool, Gyratec’s esteemed EQs, and Inertia Sound Systems’ Instinct Synergy) — from Antelope Audio’s well-stocked Software Store, starting from only $55.00 USD/€55.00 EUR. Above and beyond that, Zen Q Synergy Core’s modeling engine also allows for pairing with Antelope Audio’s Edge range of microphones for real-time use of vintage microphone emulations.

Equally impressive is Zen Q Synergy Core’s comprehensive connectivity belying its diminutive desktop-friendly footprint. The two Discrete ultra-linear pre- amps with 65dB of gain for studio-quality recordings both work as microphone/line/Hi-Z inputs on rear panel-positioned combo XLR jacks (marked MIC- XLR and LINE / HiZ 1/4” JACK), and supply 48V of phantom power — perfect for those Edge microphones. Moreover, there are two DC-coupled line outputs over TRS (labelled LINE OUT 1 and LINE OUT 2), also allowing the audio interface to transmit CV (Control Voltage) to an analog synthesizer should adventurous users wish to do so. Stereo monitoring comes courtesy of another two TRS outputs (marked MONITOR 1 and MONITOR 2). It is possible to take advantage of (up to) eight additional channels, digitally, thanks to the ADAT IN connection, with further digital connectivity provided by the two- channel S/PDIF IN and OUT connections. Ultimately, ultra-low latency and utmost stability comes courtesy of a bus-powered ThunderboltTM 3 port providing up to 16 input and 16 output channels for any popular DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with custom macOS and Windows drivers duly installed. Readily record from any location with no need for a dedicated power source since the audio interface itself is powered by that ThunderboltTM 3 connection — and all without the user ever having to question Zen Q Synergy Core’s rock-solid reliability. And as if that was not enough to be getting on with, there are also two (front panel-positioned) line/Hi-Z inputs, ideally suited for recording (lower than line level) guitars — hence being labelled G1 and G2 (with an associated guitar icon), alongside two stereo headphone outputs (HP1 and HP1) with independent gain control over TRS.

An advanced software control panel for macOS and Windows facilitates further enhancing workflow — with features including I/O routing that is simplified with pre-configured settings to allow for immediate recording and playback; customizable presets with signal routing, level adjustments, mixer, and effects settings; customizable monitoring mixes with adjustable volume, pan, and reverb; loopback capabilities to stream and record playback and interface inputs simultaneously for a convenient online broadcasting setup — while Zen Q Synergy Core’s front panel provides easily accessible controls over input and output levels, plus other settings, bolstered by a multifunctional IPS (In-Plane Switching) display.

Squeezing such an awe-inspiring array of connectivity and operational flexibility out of such a compact-sized audio interface is an appreciable achievement, allowing Zen Q Synergy Core to be easily integrated into any setup or style of workflow. Indeed, its portability effectively enables users to take their studio wherever they need to go, whether recording on location or performing an onstage live set… stream or record and mix with low latency — and no power supply required!

By being able to choose from 80-plus analogue-modelled real-time effects, transforming tracks with sought-after sounds is the order of the day — during live tracking or post-production, adding a distinctive analogue flavour to the mix. While working ITB (in-the-box), 37 emulations of some of the world’s most coveted and hard-to-find analogue studio gear are accessible for free.

With Zen Go Synergy Core’s collection far from lacking in variety by spanning from a rare Austrian EQ through to legendary British solid-state processing with much in-between. Indeed, Impressor (stereo knee compressor/limiter), Opto-2A (tube optical compressor/limiter), as well as modern-day pitch correction courtesy of Synergy Core platform partner Antares’ Auto-Tune Synergy, represent but a small selection of creative choices available to Zen Go Synergy Core owners as a growing library of expansions from Antelope Audio’s Software Store, starting from only $55.00 USD/€55.00 EUR.

But better still, since those real-time effects are hosted by Synergy Core as a proprietary processing platform uniting the power of DSP (Digital Signal Processing) and FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) processors, this means that owners of Zen Go Synergy Core can immerse into this experience with imperceptible latency, allowing for direct monitoring of the processed signal in real-time for the most enjoyable recording experience, while also offloading all processing to the audio interface itself — no need, necessarily, to rely entirely on a host computer’s CPU (Central Processing Unit) and memory capacity or any external DSP accelerators, in other words.

Far from having to rely on the average-grade preamps found in comparatively-priced competing audio interfaces, Zen Go Synergy Core features the same ultra-linear preamp circuit found in the reputable British and American recording and mixing consoles of the past. Planted firmly in the present, this design’s high-gain structure and transparency make it a perfect match for any type of microphone. Musically vintage sound experiences, of course, can easily be achieved by loading a legendary preamp emulation as a real-time Synergy Core effect, enhanced still further when working in perfect harmony with one of Antelope Audio’s Edge series modelling microphones with real-time use.

Zen Go Synergy Core duly delivers one of the highest AD/DA specifications with a mastering-grade monitor output boasting a 127 dB DNR (dynamic range) bringing width, separation, and detail to not only new recordings but to all tracks. Being bolstered by Synergy Core readily ranks it as the most powerful onboard effects processing-capable audio interface in its class. It is perfectly positioned, therefore, to bring studio-quality recording to the home — or, indeed, any remote recording location made more easily accessible by the truly portable nature of its implementation — with critically-acclaimed conversion and preamp design plus an array of professional features on hand, helping next-generation producers to take their sound to the next level. Location recording engineers; home-/bedroom-based producers; beat-makers; self-recording artists; traveling musicians; recording engineers needing a second, smaller audio interface; and modern-day ITB mixing and mastering engineers all could conceivably consider Zen Go Synergy Core as a recording match made in heaven. Someone sang the words a heaven is a place on earth as part of a worldwide hit recorded over three decades ago at the world’s most awarded studio complex in Hollywood, CA, USA; ultimately, recording (almost) anywhere on earth is now perfectly possible with Zen Go Synergy Core!
