    The Orion 32+ | Gen 3 features a suite of essential effects from Antelope Audio’s vast library of FPGA FX models. Customers can purchase additional effects as they deem fit, as well as invest in the AFX2DAW software bridge which lets them use on-board processed, low-latency effects as inserts in their preferred digital audio workstation.

    64 channels of audio via thunderbolt

    Orion 32+ | Gen 3 provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, with low-latency, simultaneous streaming of 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via ThunderboltTM and 32 channels via USB. The analog I/O are handled by 8 DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for monitoring. Digital connectivity options are complemented by ADAT and S/PDIF.

    Extensive flexibility

    Orion 32+ | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity. A color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero latency monitoring is provided. The routing matrix, mixers, and control panel are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.

    High-end clocking & conversion

    Digital clarity meets analog musicality to form the signature Antelope Audio sound.

    Our proven clocking accuracy is ensured by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. A 10 MHz input enables connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX. That, and a pair of word clock outputs make the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 a great fit in any setup - not just as an interface, but as a premium master clock as well.

    Redesigned software panel

    Control all Orion 32+ | Gen 3 features and functionality from its intuitive desktop app. macOS and Windows compatible, it implements Antelope Audio’s networking control concept to let you access the interface from multiple computers in the same network. For added convenience and flexibility, the control panels are freely movable and resizable, facilitating multi-screen workflows.

    Real-time effects

    Orion32+ | Gen 3 includes a complimentary suite of superb real-time effects selected from a growing library of Antelope Audio FPGA FX. Additional effects can be purchased to expand your arsenal of FX.

    Ready? Set? Get rocking! Orion32+ | Gen 3 includes six premier essential audio effects from the Antelope library, which run in real-time on an ultra-fast FPGA platform. Covering a wide variety of tracking and mixing uses, each effect boasts mastering grade precision and clarity – from the Clear Q linear EQ to the spacious and advanced AuraVerb. These six tools alone cover all your essential mixing and mastering needs.

    I bought this to use in conjunction with my pro-tools pc and Soundcraft ghost desk which I am using for summing. It all works seamlessly and I can honestly say that the sound quality is the best I have ever produced In all my time making music. I would have no hesitation in recommending Antelope units to anyone producing audio

    This is unstable, the drivers were really annoying to install. When I tried to contact them no reply was made and they never answered their phone.
