The ORION-STUDIO is without a doubt a star in Antelope Audio’s new line of Thunderbolt™ & USB audio interfaces. Its 12 Class-A Mic Pres make it the one and only piece of gear you’ll need to record a full band and do it like a pro. Just like Zen Tour and Goliath, Orion Studio features our FPGA powered, hardware-based vintage FX, making it the top choice for professional guitarists on the quest for crafting the perfect tone. This best-selling interface also includes Antelope’s traditionally stunning AD/DA conversion, powered by our very own, world-renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology for jitter management.


Orion Studio’s secret weapon is the extremely powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device. Its massive parallel processing capabilities are far ahead of DSP chips used in similar devices. Through smart algorithms, oversampling and custom-tweaked models, the FPGA provides the lowest latency possible, allowing you to create up to four independent, zero latency mixes. Those can be easily assigned to any output including the two separate headphone outs.
