Orion32+ follows in the footsteps of the original Orion32, which was introduced in 2013, and was the world’s first 32 channel AD/DA converter. Orion32+ delivers 32 channels of I/O, a wide range of connectivity options, zero latency monitoring, and 32-simultaneous channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio performance. Along with connectivity options via Thunderbolt, MADI and USB, the Orion32+ also incorporates ADAT and S/PDIF throughput, with I/O being handled by eight D-Sub 25 connectors and a pair of mastering grade monitor outputs — both capable of delivering up to 129 dB.
Orion32+ also includes Antelope Audio’s DSP engine, which is optimized to run customized EQ, compressor and reverb settings. These include the recently announced AuraVerb and other forthcoming effects, which are included at no additional cost.
The accompanying software application for Orion32+ provides a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers and intelligent DSP effects integration. The software application, originally created for the original Orion32, and further refined for Zen Studio, is available for both OS X and Windows operating systems. Orion32+ is also fully supported by Antelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology.
Pricing and Availability
Orion32+ is expected to ship in mid-November 2015, and is priced at $3,495 (U.S.). For more information, please visit Antelope Audio.
