HDX and USB 3.0 pro audio interface

Antelope Orion Studio HD features Pro Tools HDX and USB 3.0 connectivity, 12 class-leading preamps, massive Real-Time FPGA FX library, and Antelope’s renowned clocking and conversion

The Antelope Orion Studio HD is built for seamless operation and stability with high-end Pro Tools | HD studios, and so much more. Along with an HDX mini-connector for 32-channel, bidirectional audio transmission with Pro Tools, the Antelope Orion Studio HD also has high-speed USB 3.0, MADI to Dante Bridge I/O, ADAT and S/PDIF, plus word clock, making the Orion Studio HD one of the most versatile interfaces available, for both Pro Tools HD and Native systems. But it doesn’t end there. The Orion Studio HD also comes equipped with 12 of Antelope’s class-leading, transparent preamps, two transformer-balanced outputs for instrument reamping, and a complete library of Antelope’s stellar FPGA effects for real-time tracking and mixing through the authentic sounds of classic analog studio outboard. Of course, it’s Antelope’s world-renowned clocking and conversion that ties it all together, giving you the sound that great records and soundtracks are made of.

Antelope Orion Studio HD in one take:

  • Simultaneous streaming of 24-bit/192kHz audio via HDX or USB 3.0 and MADI (to Dante Bridge), ADAT, S/PDIF and DB-25
  • 40+ FPGA effects, including BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio, and Lang classics
  • Antelope’s signature conversion
  • Antelope’s world-renowned, 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clock jitter management algorithm
  • 12 Class A preamps with mic/line and Hi-Z input with individual phantom power
  • Control Orion Studio HD via user-friendly desktop and mobile apps

40+ FPGA effects

They key to authentic FX modeling and zero-latency audio processing is Antelope Audio’s FPGA technology, which acts like hardware-based processors. FPGA, or Field Programmable Gate Array break the 500MHz performance barrier, and unlike application-specific integrated circuits, which only have one path from input to output, the Antelope designed their FPGA to have several parallel paths for ultra-high performance. The FPGA is what enables the Orion Studio HD to track in real-time with over 40 included Real-Time FX models of legendary preamps, EQs, compressors, guitar amps, and cabs. The Orion Studio HD comes with Antelopes complete library of classic studio hardware models, including the incredible-sounding AuraVerb—all available in your studio for free. Antelope’s unique vintage gear modeling includes classics from BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio, and Lang.

Antelope’s renowned clocking and conversion

Orion Studio HD is equipped with AD converters from Orion Studio Rev. 2017, which feature an increased dynamic range of 124dB. However, dynamic range is only part of the key to excellent sound quality. An essential component is clocking, and there’s nothing in the industry like Antelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter-management technology. AFC is the foundation of the Antelope conversion’s incomparable stability, sonic accuracy, and detail. Since the Orion Studio HD is designed for high-end studio, OCX HD and Trinity-style-clocking is the order of the day.

 Enough I/O to record and produce a full band

 Along with the Pro Tools-compatible HDX port, Orion Studio HD offers super-speed USB 3.0 connectivity, which enables it to be used with any USB 3-equipped Native DAW. The interface comes with comprehensive analog and digital I/O, including 12 high-end mic pres, a pair of mastering grade monitor outs, 16 analog outs, 2 transformer-balanced reamp outputs, plus 8 channels I/O via ADAT and 2 channels I/O on S/PDIF.

 Access all Orion Studio HD features via mobile and desktop apps

 The Orion Studio HD can be controlled by multiple computers via OSX and Windows-compatible desktop app. Control software enables switching between two routing matrix view modes and full Session Saving functionality. Orion Studio HD allows you to save, load, and share any routing, monitoring, and FX settings. These presets can be ported to other Antelope-equipped studios around the globe.

If you have multiple devices connected to your PC/ MAC computer (or different computers wired in the same Local Area Network) you can select which one to control. Control and use as many Orion Studio HD devices as you want via the S/N (serial number) selector in the software control panel, or, you can open multiple panels on the same computer. Orion Studio HD is suitable for large studio facilities and offers flexible device management from various access points.

Want even greater freedom? An iOS / Android mobile app gives you full mic pres control from a smartphone or tablet.

 The Antelope Orion Studio HD, just like the name implies, gives you a complete, high-level Pro Tools or native studio in a single rack space. For more information, call or chat online with your Westlake Pro sales consultant today.
