Antelope Audio Edge Go modelling USB mic, Orion 32+ / HD Gen 3

Posted on: Sunday 10th of February 2019

Antelope Audio has introduced three new products: Edge Go, the world’s first modelling USB microphone; and new Orion 32+ and HD Gen-3 flagship AD/DA converters.

With Edge Go, Antelope aims to bring the fidelity and quality of its Edge Duo large-diaphragm modelling condenser mic and effects library in a format suitable for today’s mobile media makers. Powered over USB-C (though still Type-A compatible) – unfortunately the power demand is too much for use with iPad and iPhone, though. Edge Go uses the same capsule as the Duo, and utilises other Antelope technology, such as a discrete mic preamp, high-quality AD converters, and Antelope’s FPGA FX platform for low-latency microphone and effects modelling. Edge Go comes with a selection of ready-made presets that contain effects chains built out of vintage EQ and compressor models, de-essing, gating, tape saturation, and reverb. The objective is obtain professional-sounding results quickly, not at the expense of CPU power, and not necessarily utilising a pro-grade DAW. Edge Go is scheduled for shipment in Q1, priced at $1595 . The package includes the modeling microphone, a desktop mic stand, professional pop filter, custom shockmount, USB-C cable, and hard shell carrying case.

 

 

The Orion32+ | Gen 3 brings the same connectivity, flexibility, and channel counts to the production table that the original Orion32+ made its notable name with. But there’s even more now — elevated operating levels (+24dBu max), upgraded AD/DA conversion, ultra-fast and stable custom ThunderboltTM driver for Windows, and a major facelift. It will be available at an even more accessible starting price with a selection of real-time, FPGA-powered effects from the extensive Antelope Audio collection.

 

 

 

 

The original Orion32 HD set a new price/performance standard for HDX-compatible I/O. Industry-leading conversion and exceptional connectivity for the price ensure expectations are redefined once again with the Orion32 HD | Gen 3. It includes all the power of the original, now upgraded with Antelope Audio’s flagship- level AD/DA conversion. Its MONITOR output pair has been measured at 136dB dynamic range, according to Antelope. Features include:

• Pro Tools HD- and Native-compatible 64×64 AD/DA converter
• Industry-leading AD/DA conversion with up to 136dB dynamic range
• 38 FPGA-powered real-time FX models of iconic studio gear
• Streaming of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via HDX or USB 3.0
• Next-generation 64-bit clocking and jitter management
• 10 MHz input enables connection to 10M and 10MX atomic clocks
• Word Clock outputs for use as master clock
• Additional connectivity on MADI, ADAT, S/PDIF, 8x DB25
• Mastering-grade monitor outputs
• Housed in efficient ‘green design’ fan-less chassis
