NEU: Antelope Discrete 8 Pro SC

28.2.2022 | Audio Interface

Mit dem Discrete 8 Pro Synergy Core stellt Antelope Audio die neuesten Softwarefunktionen vor und ermöglicht es Studiobesitzern, Bands und Toningenieuren, mit legendärer Soundqualität zu arbeiten. Mit dem Industriestandard Thunderbolt 3 und USB 2.0, ultraniedriger Latenzleistung und noch besseren Effektverarbeitungsfähigkeiten trägt das Audio-Interface den Namen des Modells zu Recht, bei der erstmals die Synergy Core-Technologie vorgestellt wurde


 Conversion & Clocking 

  • Class-leading AD/DA conversion with up to 130dB of headroom. 
  • Recording, mixing and playback at up to 24-bit/192kHz. 
  • Proprietary 64-bit AFC™ (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology & Jitter Management algorithm delivering increased sound width, separation, and detail.  


  • 8 × Discrete 6-transistor preamps with 65dB of gain for pristine recordings. All work as microphone/line and two are also Hi-Z inputs, on combo XLR jacks, and supply 48V of phantom power. 
  • 8 × DC-coupled line outputs over D-Sub 25. 
  • Two reamp outputs on TRS ¼ jacks for further amp processing of guitar signal. They can also be used as an additional stereo monitor output – this allows you to have two pairs of monitor speakers playing together simultaneously.
  • Thunderbolt™ 3 and USB 2.0 port with custom macOS & Windows drivers. 
  • Digitally expandable over ADAT I/O, with 16 channels available. 
  • Digitally expandable over S/PDIF I/O, with 2 channels available. 
  • Three word clock outputs letting you distribute the interface’s highly stable clock signal across your studio and a word clock input allowing you to sync the Discrete 8 Pro Synergy Core with other gear.
  • Footswitch input that can be used as a single footswitch (on 1/4” TS jack) to control the dim function and a dual footswitch to control both the talkback and dim functions.
  • Two stereo headphone outputs with separate gain control. 
  • Dedicated stereo monitor output over TRS. 


Workflow-enhancing features 

  • Direct monitoring with Synergy Core effects, processed in real-time with imperceptible latency. 
  • Expanded routing capabilities – switch audio sources per channel based on a drop-down menu sequence or make use of a virtual routing matrix.
  • Customizable presets with signal routing, level adjustments, mixer and effects settings. 
  • Customizable monitoring mixes with adjustable volume, pan and reverb. 
  • Easily accessible front-panel talkback with built-in microphone.
  • Front panel with independent headphone and monitor volume knobs and buttons for sample rate configuration, and hands-on control of core parameters. Hardware relay-based gain knobs for each preamp, plus mode control (mic/line/Hi-Z) via push sequence.
  • Option to work without being connected to a computer (standalone operation).
  • Wireless control of software features from a separate computer connected to the same network. 


Real-time effects processing 

  • Collection of 37 Synergy Core effects modeled after classic and rare analog outboard gear.  
  • Synergy Core proprietary onboard platform powered by 2 × DSP & 1 × FPGA chips for real-time effects processing with imperceptible latency. 
  • Modeling Engine allowing pairing with the Edge line of microphones for real-time use of vintage microphone emulations
