—Demonstrations to Highlight Hybrid Multi-Channel Setup With the Orion³² —
— Purple Audio and Rupert Neve Designs to Feature Orion³² in 500 Series Product Set-Ups —
New York, October 9, 2013 — During the AES convention exhibit in New York this month, leading digital audio manufacturer Antelope Audio [Booth 3139] will demonstrate the power and flexibility of its newest multi-channel interface: the Orion³². Antelope’s U.S. Director of Sales and Marketing, Marcel James, will be on hand to walk attendees through the unit’s capabilities when used with hardware summing and equipment inserts, while explaining how to make full use of Orion’s powerful Control Panel and Mixer.
GRAMMY-Award winning engineer Brian Vibberts (Michael Jackson, Chick Corea) has prepared a Pro Tools mix session for this special presentation and will discuss how the Orion³² fits into a broader hybrid audio setup consisting of 3rd party equipment from Purple Audio and Rupert Neve Designs.
“Hanging Out” with Antelope at the AES Exhibit
Antelope will also host two live episodes of its new “Hanging Out” Series with multi GRAMMY-Award winning mix engineers Jimmy Douglas [Justin Timberlake, Jay Z] and Michael Brauer [My Morning Jacket, Coldplay]. These sessions — which will feature a meet and greet — will occur at the Antelope booth on Friday, October 18th at 3:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 19th at 1:00 p.m. respectively. Both episodes will stream live on the Antelope Audio YouTube Channel along with live show demos and reports.
Additionally, the Orion³² will be featured within Purple Audio and Rupert Neve Designs’ AES exhibits. These companies, which will be demonstrating new 500 series modules and other equipment, will be using the Orion³² as the primary playback device to simulate mixing scenarios using hardware summing and other techniques.
Purple Audio will be debuting it’s new mixer, dubbed MF Twenty 5 that integrates with a 500 rack, effectively making it a sidecar. The unit is targeted at home users doing hardware summing — but also prefer working with faders. The new MF Twenty 5 will be taking its input signal from the Orion³². “I will be running the Orion³² because I want all the I/O, and because we have lots of video people coming in from time to time,” he says. “The Orion³² is a very affordable converter with a full-bodied character and a sound I would describe as ‘realistic.’”
Distribution Companies Fingerprint Audio and Rupert Neve Designs have been using the Orion³² for their demonstrations of Rupert Neve Designs popular summing and processing products and the sE Mic line. Jonathan Pines, director of strategic operations for Fingerprint Audio and Rupert Neve Designs, says the Orion³² is a “game-changer” which he uses regularly in the studio for his own projects. “I use the Orion³² in conjunction with Antelope’s 10M Atomic Clock, which creates an audible improvement to the already great sound of the Orion,” he says. “Also, the Orion is incredibly easy to use and works flawlessly for me both on the studio and on the road.”
