Antelope Audio Discrete 8

ALL-STAR TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE

6-in/32-out Thunderbolt/USB Audio Interface, 24-bit/192kHz, with 8 Discrete Microphone Preamps, Mic/Preamp Modeling, and 2 Channels of Built-in FX – Mac/PC

This version of Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 includes the Basic AFX Collection, which allows you to use 2 channels of FPGA FX processing

Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking.

8 DISCRETE MIC PREAMPS

Console-grade 6-transistor discrete microphone preamps

MIC PREAMP MODELING

Turn the expensive sounding Discrete 8 mic pres into classic units via Tube, Transformer and FET based circuitry in real-time

REAL-TIME FPGA FX

Premier real-time FX including BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio and Lang classics to use in the Easy Panel or in a DAW

ROCK-SOLID CLOCKING

Discrete 8 features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology

EXPERT MONITORING

Create up to 4 custom monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included and send them to Headphone or Monitor outs; Talkback feature also included

REMOTE CONTROL

Control all Discrete 8 features via its intuitive Easy Panel or download the free iOS and Android mobile apps

Console-grade and fully Discrete Preamps offer world-class sound.

Discrete 8 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into a plethora of classic units real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modelling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.
