The Orion Studio HD offers perfect integration for digital sources into Pro Tools HD, thanks to Antelope's proprietary HDX Delay Compensation. This amazing technology ensures that every analog or digital signal that enters the Orion Studio HD is captured by Pro Tools with sample-accurate precision.
Antelope's 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter-management technology, used in top mastering facilities worldwide, delivers some of the most analog-sounding audio conversion we've heard here at Sweetwater. Expect vast stereo imaging, wide and balanced frequency response, and an uncanny sense of depth and dimension.
Everything You Need for an Efficient Workflow
Seamless integration with your studio
Orion Studio HD features two monitor outs with front-panel A/B switching for reference. Digital expansion and synchronization are offered by ADAT, S/PDIF, and Word Clock I/O.
Realistic vintage processing effects
Emulations of vintage Pultec EQs, the classic 1073 EQ model created with BAE, the VEQ-55A EQ, and the AuraVerb reverb are just some of the effects that come standard in Antelope's included FPGA suite. Apply them to any inputs or outputs you like, perfect for sweetening tracks on the way in and for providing artists stellar headphone mixes. You can even use these effects to process tracks in your DAW.
Advanced remote apps
Apps for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android control Antelope Audio interfaces remotely from any device on your network. You'll have full control over Orion Studio HD's audio routing, built-in FPGA processing, input/output metering, and more. Plus, you can run the app simultaneously on multiple devices/operating systems (PC, Mac, iOS, Android) and have them all control one interface at the same time.
Ready for Guitars, Drums, and Practically Any Other Application
Capture epic guitar tones, direct
Orion Studio HD's clean front end with zero-latency monitoring and Overloud amp modeling give guitar and bass players access to great recorded tones without requiring an amp and mic. If you decide later that you want to mic up a real amplifier, Orion Studio HD's two transformer-based Reamp outputs make it easy to run direct tracks from your DAW to a guitar amp without requiring additional reamping devices.
Enough preamps to track a full band
A console's worth of mic preamps and inputs equip Orion Studio HD for real-world recording applications. It's an ideal interface for tracking high channel counts without requiring multiple racks full of preamps and processors.
Impressively rugged build quality
As with all Antelope gear, the company's usual tour-grade build quality is evident throughout Orion Studio HD's rackmount chassis.
Pro Guitar Interface A clean front end with zero-latency monitoring and Overloud amp modeling give guitar and bass players access to great recorded tones without the amp and the mic.
Most Mic/Line Channels Multiple mic preamps and line/DI inputs equip the Orion Studio HD for many real-world recording applications: drums, full bands/orchestras, etc.
Lowest Latency USB 3.0's round-trip speed reduces latency to imperceptible amounts. The result is a near-analog recording experience for both the producer and the artist.
Advanced Remote Apps Apps for Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android control Antelope Audio interfaces remotely from any device on your network.
World-class Clocking Any product worthy of the Antelope Audio name must have exceptional clocking. Extremely low jitter gives this unit Antelope's vivid depth and three-dimensionality.
