Orion32: Unmatched I/O Flexibility, Audio Quality and Clocking Accuracy
Antelope Audio’s Orion32 is the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA converter, supporting both MADI and USB interfaces, clocked by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology. The device features 192 kHz I/O streaming of 32-channel digital audio through its custom-built USB chip, which provides simple connectivity to any USB-enabled DAW or computer. The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its fiber optic MADI I/O connections, which can be used to connect with any suitably equipped, MADI-compatible device.
In addition to being an extremely high quality audio converter, Orion32 is also an audio master clock. The device employs Antelope’s proprietary 4th generation of AFC and oven controlled oscillator, technologies that make Antelope Audio clocks an industry leader for accuracy and reliability in recording, mastering and post-production facilities around the world. The 4 word clock outs, together with the 10 MHz input, make Orion 32 the ideal centerpiece to any project studio, high-end studio or live performance environment.
