Antelope Audio's Zen Go Synergy Core is an affordable 4x8 bus-powered USB-C audio interface featuring a suite of integrated real-time effects. Thanks to a highly portable design, you'll be able to create music quickly and easily wherever you are - harnessing the same industry standard tech used by professional producers. 

Thanks to highly regarded 64-bit AFC clocking architecture and the integrated effects-laden Synergy Core system, you're guaranteed premium audio, low-latency recording and enhanced processing right out of the box. 

Zen Go Synergy Core | USB-C Bus-Powered Audio Interface | Product Overview

Portable Potential 

This is Antelopes very first interface to feature bus power. For the uninitiated, this means you'll be able to connect to your laptop or computer to power the unit - all without the need for an external power supply. So whether you're a producer, podcaster, beat maker or content creator, you'll be able to create on the move, anywhere, anytime. 

Industry Standard Sound 

With the Zen Go Synergy Core you'll capture superior sound that matches the same standard that's usually reserved for professional engineers and artists. 

This is made possible by the 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology - that's used in high-end studios and during Hollywood scoring sessions across the world - and industry standard AD/DA converters paired with discrete ultra-linear preamps. The latter are commonly found in iconic British and American mixing consoles and ensure an astounding level of clarity.  

By adopting Antelope Audio gear, you'll be joining the ranks of award-winning producers and engineers like Adrian Bushby - who was awarded a Grammy for his work on Foo Fighters' 'Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace' and other hit records.  He says "I first used Antelope Audio units whilst recording the Grammy Award winning album 'The Resistance' by Muse. They were f***ing amazing then! And they still are!" If that isn't a ringing endorsement, we really don't know what is.  

Quality Analog-Modelled Effects

Alongside your Zen Go Synergy Core, you'll receive 37 analog-modelled effects. These are based on highly sought after pieces of vintage gear.

From preamps and EQs, to compressors, reverbs, guitar amps and cabs, harness them to add variety and quality to your music. As a result of the improved onboard Synergy Core processing, you can comfortably layer these effects without having to worry about putting stress on the interface. Slowdown and latency are a thing of the past.  

With regards to the guitar cab and amp emulations (22 in all), you'll be able to craft a serious amount of contrasting tones from this interface; there really are no limits here. Whether you're recreating classic studio sounds or producing new ones entirely, the creative possibilities are almost endless. 

Flexible Connectivity 

A selection of different connectivity makes the Zen Go Synergy Core a versatile device that'll slot seamlessly into your production setup. The full range of connections are outlined below, and it's safe to say you won't be scrabbling round for options - no matter how you like to make music.  

Bitwig Studio 16-Track

Included with the Zen Go Synergy Core you will receive a free copy of Bitwig Studio 16-Track - a Software for composing, intuitive producing and live mixes. Containing over 70 instruments, effects, containers and modulators.
