Antelope presents Orion Studio Synergy Core , a professional, efficient and modern Thunderbolt 3 & USB AD/DA interface including 12 discrete microphone preamps, six built-in DSP and two FPGA chips and a massive effects library with 50 Antelope plug-ins for editing your recordings. As the heart of your studio, the Orion Studio Synergy Core not only delivers great sound, but also takes the load off your computer with external processors. Simply put, you can run larger productions, add more plug-ins and VSTs, minimize latency, increase buffer size and keep the system stable.

Synergy-Core: FPGA + DSP = Future-proof effects processing

With 6 DSP + 2 FPGA chips under the hood that allow you to incorporate a huge effects library from Antelope Audio and platform partners, the Orion Studio Synergy Core takes the load off your host Mac or PC so you can create larger mixes and compositions without bringing the system to its knees. Thanks to Antelope's state-of-the-art Synergy Core FX processors, you'll have enormous processing power for any kind of project - now and in the future!

50 Antilope FX

Antelope's Orion Studio Synergy Core brings you 50 of the best real-time effects plug-ins - impressive microphone preamp emulations, compressors, EQs, reverb, guitar amps and cabinet models, everything you need to bring your tracks to life and edit them. And thanks to the Synergy Core architecture, you can run all the processing plug-ins you need for your session simultaneously.

Thunderbolt 3 + USB connectivity

The system provides a cross-platform audio interface for Windows and Mac and offers both USB and Thunderbolt 3 connections to your DAW host computer. You can even charge your MacBook using the Orion Studio Synergy Core.

130 dB dynamic range D/A for critical ears

Why should you edit your projects with less than the best D/A converters? The Antelope Orion Studio Synergy Core delivers 130 dB dynamic range on both monitor outputs - which can run simultaneously or in A/B mode.

12 discrete microphone preamps + direct inputs

The Orion Studio Synergy Core gives you 12 microphone preamps based on Antelope's ultra-linear Discrete MP standalone preamplifier, delivering 75 dB of pristine gain. Need to process line-level signals? No problem - Orion Studio Synergy Core's Direct In bypasses the microphone preamps and goes directly into the A/D converters (124 dB dynamic range)

Digital Patchbay for Pro Studios

Thanks to the integrated software control panel, audio signals can be sent anywhere - digital, flexible routing and monitoring just like an analog patchbay.

Antelope's 4th Generation Clocking

Antelope Audio is known for building solid digital audio clocks that can be found in world-class recording studios and broadcast stations around the world. The Orion Studio Synergy Core would not be an Antelope interface if it didn't deliver world-class clocking. With Word Clock I/O, the Orion Studio Synergy Core synchronizes your studio with Antelope's 4th generation clocking and uses 64-bit DDS to keep your audio in lockstep at up to 192 kHz.
