I’ve been upgrading bits of studio equipment for years now trying to get the perfect setup but it’s amazing how I ignored the clock, the timing hub of my whole recording setup. On hearing the Antelope it was immediately apparent what I’d been missing; a wider stereo image, crisp transients and a 3D depth of field that let me “see” deep within my mix. Amazing. I also love the fact that I can have a separate high sample rate rig to put mixes down onto, clocked from the same source as my main rig which is running at a lower sample rate.
