Antelope Audio just announced availability of the new DISCRETE 4, a Thunderbolt & USB Interface with 4 Discrete Mic Preamps — perfect for solo musicians as well as smaller project studios and bedroom-based home recordists/producers alike.
A Studio Experience
Although DISCRETE 4 was designed to work with any microphone, it really shines when working with Antelope Audio’s new EDGE and VERGE modelling microphones that were recently announced alongside its bigger brother, the DISCRETE 8 ThunderboltTM & USB Interface with 8 Discrete Mic Preamps — hardly surprising since those modelling microphones were designed to exclusively match the discrete preamp architecture of the audio interfaces in question.
Antelope Audio’s acclaimed real-time FPGA platform puts an authentic vintage sound into discerning DISCRETE 4 users’ hands; however, this has now been extended to create a complete professional studio experience like no other.
Microphones, preamps, conversion, compressors, EQ, and reverb are all accessible with ease, either from within DISCRETE 4’s EasyPanel software or via any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with workflow that just… well, works — thanks to Antelope Audio’s all-new AFX2DAW plug-in. Perform and record either with effects already applied or add processing in post-production.
Like all things Antelope Audio, DISCRETE 4 is a rock-solid clocking solution in itself. It comes complete with cutting-edge, fourth- generation 64-bit AFC technology that is already familiar from several celebrated classics of Antelope Audio’s own making, such as ISOCHRONE TRINITY.
When working with DISCRETE 4, monitoring and talkback features are both super-flexible and a breeze to set up. Ultimately, users can create up to four individual monitoring mixes and send them to headphones or MONITOR outputs with (or without) whatever FPGA FX they might have stacked, so any artist being recorded can experience the convincing sounds of vintage EQ, compression, and authentic guitar amp emulations that are as close to the final product as possible.
