Product Description

Here's what Antelope Audio have to say about the Discrete 8 Pro audio interface:

The Discrete 8 Pro is the new generation of a modern classic. The 1U rack audio interface packs industry-leading sound quality, transparent preamps, extensive connectivity and the powerful Synergy Core effects platform. This versatile interface embodies a zero-compromise approach to hardware – made readily accessible via its redesigned software control panel.

Remove complexity, add creativity

The Discrete 8 Pro allows connection between any signal source and any destination for turning any session scenario into reality. Yes, seriously: every analog or digital output, effect strip or DAW track can receive any of the analog or digital inputs, effect returns, computer source channels or the four stereo mixes. All this flexibility is accessible via the full virtual patch-bay or the simplified routing view of the original Discrete interfaces – the choice is yours.

Explore all avenues with 26 inputs & 32 outputs

The generous number of preamps, analog and digital I/O support a wealth of applications: voice work, multi-synth setups, live recordings of small ensembles and even close-miked drum kits. And with both USB and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the interface achieves cutting-edge performance and easy integration with any setup.

Record and monitor with uncompromising sound detail

The A-D/D-A converters and clocking are at the heart of every studio. The Discrete 8 Pro has been upgraded with latest generation converters (up to 130dB of headroom), while keeping the 64-bit AFC™ clocking technology established by our industry-standard master clocks. With the interface in your rack, you can experience a new level of detail in your recordings and enjoy wider soundstage for an exceptional stereo image in audio playback.

Console-grade, times eight

The Discrete 8 Pro packs eight discrete Class-A microphone preamps, formed of six transistors each and based on circuits found in classic recording consoles. The proof is in the clarity, depth and ultra-low noise floor, with up to 65 dB of gain to satisfy even the hungriest mics.

All eight inputs accept XLR as well as line-level TS/TRS jacks, and the two front panel inputs can even be switched to Hi-Z instrument inputs.

Stack up your processing chain and send to any output

Our unique Synergy Core platform gives you access to hardware-based analog-modeled outboard recreations. Running on a hybrid system of one FPGA and two DSP chips, you can monitor, record and mix using an ever-expanding library of low-latency processors. Even at the highest sample rate, the Discrete 8 Pro supports the full number of effects, simultaneously.
