Building on the success of the Orion32, offering a whopping 32-channels of AD/DA conversion, and featuring Antelope's Renowned 64-bit Acoustically focused technology, this versatile unit will give you studio grade, crystal clear analogue tone you have been looking for in your studio. The major upgrade in the Orion32+ is the addition of Thunderbolt connectivity, so that a greater variety of interfaces can connect. Now you have the choice of USB, Thunderbolt or Madi to connect all your gear. The digital connectivity options are complimented also by ADAT and S/PDIF.
The Orion32's Thunderbolt and USB connections provide seamless connectivity to a wide variety of interfaces, computers or iPad. Using Antelope Audio's custom-built chips, they've managed to get latency levels to be extremely low, even when the Orion is firing on all cylinders. The latency performance varies between only 1 and 6.5 ms for different hardware and software configurations.
The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its Fiber Optic MADI I/O connections, which can be used to connect with any suitably equipped MADI device.
Orion32 also supports ADAT protocol by offering 16 I/O channels, for even greater compatibility with a large number of audio devices. The multi-channel converter inputs and outputs pass the analog signal through 8 D-SUB 25 I/O connectors.

Here's what Antelope Audio Say about the Orion32+
Enhanced Routing, Mixing and Monitoring
Orion32 + offers stunning flexibility and great productivity, providing a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers, built-in DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. The entire control is gathered in a desktop application available for both OS X and Windows. The control panel is based on the software created initially for Orion32 and further developed for another Antelope Audio leading product, Zen Studio. Orion32+ control panel is an extremely intuitive user-friendly interface, which incorporates both our know-how and customers’ feedback.
HIGH-END CLOCKING & CONVERSION
Digital clarity meets analog detail in Antelope Audio’s signature sound
The proven clocking accuracy is supported by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, the same as with the flagship Trinity Master Clock.
The clean, transparent and detailed conversion in Orion32+ is the same as with its predecessor, which has proved its sound quality in a great number of studios and live shows across the Globe.
The 10 MHz input, enabling connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX, makes Orion32+ crystal oscillator remarkably precise, emphasizing the signature Antelope sound. The two word clock outputs make Orion32+ a great fit in any setup, not only as an interface, but a master clock as well.
THE POWER OF THE ONBOARD DSP
We fitted the Orion32+ with our own proprietary DSP engine
It is optimized to run custom equalization, compression, and reverb plug-ins. This potent processing arsenal includes our new AuraVerb, as well as other effects to be released – all included at no additional cost.
AuraVerb creates various ambient colors, or “Auras”, using a unique algorithm to provide richness like no other reverb plugin on the market. Producers can easily design thickening effects, washing effects, bright halo type film score effects. There are also darkened mood effects and long, clear and rich decays – just a few of the many dimensions, which AuraVerb is able to add to the mix. AuraVerb comes with reverb presets, exclusively designed by the 5-time Grammy Award winning recording and mixing engineer Brian “Dr. Vibb” Vibberts.
