Based on next gen signal processing, Antelope Audio’s Synergy Core is an audio interface delivering seamless recording potential. The Synergy Core has the power to free up your PC CPU while running software modelling tone at a super low latency. Put Antelope Audio's pristine AD/DA conversion and massive effects processing power on your desktop, with dual DSP chips plus an FPGA processor running Antelope's expansive library of effects - 36 are included, free of charge!

Key Features

  • Premier Synergy Core FX processing
  • 36 included real-time audio effects + optional additions
  • 8 Console-grade Class A mic pres with discrete transistor design
  • Class-leading DA monitor outs with 130dB DNR
  • 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking
  • 8 Analog line outs over DB25 (DC Coupled)
  • Thunderbolt & USB connectivity
  • A pair of monitor outs on TRS
  • 2 Stereo headphone outs
  • 3 Word Clock outputs
  • Create & share custom presets
  • Intuitive software control panel

Preamps and AD/DA Conversion

Equipped with eight console-grade mic preamps and four headphone monitoring slots, the Synergy Core is perfect for a small to mid-sized studio home studio setup after best in class AD/DA conversion with the option of recording direct in.

Antelope have created a modern classic preamp circuit to complement their condenser microphones. The Synergy Core provides up to 121dB of dynamic range with sample rates to 192kHz. Add that to the Thunderbolt connection and your recording is guaranteed to sound fresh, bold and clean. You always have the potential to expand using ADAT chaining, making use of the acclaimed Antelope clocking technology.

Essential Recording, Mixing and Mastering Effects

Included in the Synergy Core pack are 36 real-time studio effects modelled precisely after hardware originals. Near zero latency allows you to record in confidence using an incredible selection of amps, cabs, EQs, compressors and reverb to sculpt your sound plugged direct in.

FPGA, DSP and World-Class Clocking

Antelope Audio's industry-leading FPGA audio processing platform gives you lower latency in effects chains. Combining FPGA & DSP chips in one interface, the Discrete 4 Synergy Core offers power that'll deliver a faster clock rate than anything else on the market. 

A reliable master clock lies at the heart of every pro studio, and the Discrete 4 Synergy Core wouldn't be an Antelope Audio interface if it didn't offer rock-solid clocking. With Antelope's 4th-Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management algorithm, you'll get 75-ohm BNC Word Clock outputs so you can expand and clock your digital gear without hassle.
