The Antelope Orion32+ | Gen 3 is a Thunderbolt/USB audio interface offering 32 channels of AD/DA conversion and upgraded performance for audio engineers in recording studios and live stage applications. With a redesigned look, expanded dynamic range, and lower THD+N values, the Orion32+ | Gen 3 is designed to visually and aurally enhance your setup. It supports 64 channels of 24-bit / 192 kHz high-resolution audio via Thunderbolt, or 32 channels over USB. In addition to 32 channels of analog I/O via DB25 connectors, this interface features powerful digital I/O including fiber-optic MADI, ADAT, and S/PDIF. The dedicated 1/4″ monitor outputs are ideal for hooking up a pair of active monitors or a monitor controller.
The Orion32+ | Gen 3 also functions as a master clock, providing the same clarity and precision synonymous with Antelope, along with 64-bit AFC (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology to handle jitter. Two wordclock outputs, a wordclock input, and a 10 MHz atomic clock input allow proper synchronization with a variety of digital equipment.
Configure the interface via the front-panel display and buttons; five presets are provided for easy store/recall operations. Alternatively, use the macOS- and Windows-compatible desktop app for access to comprehensive routing, mixing, effects chaining, and more. The Orion 32+ | Gen 3 includes a bundle of Antelope’s FPGA-based FX, which model heralded audio hardware.
