2013 Summer NAMM: Antelope Audio Showcases Orion32 Interface

Antelope_Audio_Orion32-2Antelope Audio will be showing its new Orion32 interface this week at the Summer NAMM show.

With 32 channels at the output stage in a single rack space, the Orion32 is suited for use with summing mixers (such as the Rupert Neve Designs 5059, which is being used for this week’s NAMM demos). The combination of Orion32 interface + summing mixer can result in increased fidelity, for detailed mixes that feature “greater dimension.”

The Orion32 is appealing for use in both commercial and project studios given its flexible I/O capabilities, high channel count and built in master clocking capabilities. Its custom-built USB chip supports 32 channels of 192 kHz I/O and works with any USB-enabled DAW or computer. The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its fiber optic MADI I/O connections for use in live sound environments, or for use in remote recording applications.

The Orion 32, which generates very little heat and consumes just 20 watts of power, is housed in a single 1U rack space and requires no internal fan. Its flexible routing capabilities support simultaneous signals over both USB and MADI, and are all managed through a simple-to-use desktop application included with the device.

Pricing and Availability. The Orion32 audio interface is available now at a suggested retail price of $2,995 US. More information about the Orion32 is available from the Antelope Audio website.
