Discrete 4 is a 14 in and 20 out interface featuring 4 analog ins, 4 analog line outs, stereo monitor outs, 4 headphone outs and 2 ReAmps. Additional digital connectivity comes on S/PDIF and 2 ADAT’s.

Discrete 4, meet Edge

Edge was designed to match the unit’s discrete preamp architecture.

Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, these new modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.

Edge is a modeling microphone by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, this new modeling microphone will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.

Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Antelope founder Igor Levin designed groundbreaking fully discrete electronics. Hand selected capsules encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape for optimal sonic performance. Edge is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.

Premium FX pack

The Premium FX pack that comes with this bundle allows you to employ the full studio power of the Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. The collection features authentic models of iconic studio units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, LANG and FET.

The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack allows you to use 4 channel strips with 4 FX instances  each and up to 16 channel strips using the new AFX2DAW plug-in. The Premium FX library features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX, including Vintage EQs, Compressors, AuraVerb, Guitar Amps & Cabinet models.

The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack will be distributed on a license basis through activation code. The code for Premium activation should be printed and included it in the packaging of the purchased device or sent via e-mail by your preferred Dealer.

Please be aware that after being activated once the code can't be de-activated and activated on another Discrete device.

AFX2DAW Plug-In

As of November 2018, Discrete 8 and Discrete 4 Premium AFX pack users can download the AFX2DAW plug-in from Antelope Audio. AFX2DAW  is a useful plug-in for bridging the gap between the Antelope Audio FPGA FX platform and your modern digital audio workstation (DAW).

AFX2DAW streamlines your workflow by combining the Antelope Audio FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) modelling engine with the speed and intuitiveness of a DAW. Since the plug-in still uses the interfaces' FGPA chip you won't have to worry about any CPU burden.

You can add an instance of AFX2DAW to each track and use your FPGA FX within your DAW with nearly no latency.

Inside the Discrete 4 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording.  Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

More about the Discrete 4

Expensive-sounding discrete mic preamps and vintage gear emulation

Antelope Audio’s Discrete 4 Microphone Preamp comes with 4 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 4 features the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX modeling iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and FET.
Discrete 4 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, now accessible in any DAW thanks to the freshly introduced Antelope AFX2DAW Plugin.

Console-grade and fully discrete preamps for best-in-class sound.

Discrete 4 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine transforms its already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into several classic units. It’s all happening real-time and with as authentic responsiveness as possible.

Enjoy the sound of legendary FX gear in your DAW

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the new AFX2DAW Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production.

Transform Edge & Verge into vintage replicas

Inside the Discrete 4 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

Proprietary jitter management technologies

Like all things Antelope Audio, Discrete 4 is a rock-solid clocking solution itself. It comes packed with the 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology you already know from Antelope classics like Trinity, OCX HD and Pure2. Two Word Clock outputs allow you to distribute clock signal to your other digital gear.

Maintain multiple mixes and exchange presets

Monitoring and Talkback features in Discrete 4 are super flexible and a breeze to set up. Create up to 4 individual monitoring mixes. Send them to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without the FPGA FX you’ve stacked. Vintage EQ, Compression and authentic guitar amp emulations will allow the recording artists to experience convincing sound, which is as close to the final product as possible.

With Discrete 4 users can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with all Antelope Audio FPGA-equipped interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other devices and users.

Control Discrete 4 with free desktop and mobile apps

The free to download Discrete 4 remote App allows you to adjust all microphone input levels. It grants you full control over the Talkback levels, Monitoring and Headphone volumes. Musicians can now control their own headphone volume through their smartphones.
