Product Description

Antelope Audio Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp and Thunderbolt/USB Interface

26-in/32-out Thunderbolt/USB Audio Interface, 24-bit/192kHz, with 8 Discrete Microphone Preamps, Mic/Preamp Modeling, and 2 Channels of Built-in FX - Mac/PC
 

Built-in FX and Mic/Preamp Modeling

Putting Antelope Audio's Discrete 8 at the center of your studio is a sure way to invigorate your projects. Experience an expensive-sounding warmth, by virtue of eight console-grade mic pres, while Accusonic modeling arms you with an array of classic microphone and preamp emulations. Beyond that, Discrete 8's built-in FPGA FX supply you with a sizable collection of spot-on vintage processor models. This audio interface offers incredible sound quality, thanks to Antelope's legendary clocking and conversion. Discrete 8 includes an ample amount of I/O, and its comprehensive monitoring section includes a built-in talkback mic and up to four individual headphone mixes. Discrete 8 belongs in your studio.

Console-grade preamps with Accusonic modeling

Discrete 8's eight console-grade preamps feature a fully discrete design consisting of six accurately matched transistors. These pres sound amazing on their own, but Discrete 8 takes things further with built-in Accusonic modeling that emulates classic microphones and preamps in real-time. Experience an authentic blend of 10 different mic preamps, along with tube, transformer, and FET-based microphones, with no artifacts or latency. You can capture sources with and without Accusonic modeling, enabling you to choose between mic and preamp models while mixing. While these preamps work with any microphone, they really shine with Antelope's Edge and Verge mics.

Comprehensive monitoring section with 4 headphone mixes

Discrete 8 has a comprehensive monitoring section complete with a built-in talkback mic. You can create up to four individual headphone mixes for band members, complete with FPGA FX. Set up various tracking scenarios and save them as presets for easy recall. Discrete 8's front panel features an assignable volume knob to control the level of your main monitors and the individual headphone outputs. Keeping an eye on your levels is easy, thanks to Discrete 8's front-panel metering.

Hardware-based emulations of classic processors

Antelope Audio's Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology not only allows Discrete 8 near-zero latency performance, but it also powers its built-in FPGA FX, which are authentic digital re-creations of classic hardware processors. FPGA FX respond more like hardware compared to many other plug-ins, thanks to this powerful processing platform. Discrete 4's included effects deliver spot-on emulations of vintage processors, but they're just the beginning. Antelope's engineers are continuously working on creating new models, and you'll be able to add them for free as they become available.

Basic AFX Collection

Enter the world of authentic vintage gear modeling with the Basic AFX Collection. Explore the true sound of iconic and expensive units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, Lang, and FET. The Basic AFX collection allows you to use two instances of each EQ, compressor, and AuraVerb, plus one instance of each guitar amp/cabinet model. This Basic AFX collection features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX.
