Discrete 4 Synergy Core and Discrete 8 Synergy Core include a library of 36 real-time FPGA FX

Antelope Audio has announced the release of its signal processing platform, Synergy Core, via ‘hot-rodded revamps’ of its Discrete 4 and Discrete 8 audio interfaces. Using FPGA capabilities combined with industry-standard DSP, the platform is said to free up a computer’s CPU while processing FX with low latency. Discrete 4 Synergy Core offers four console-grade, discreet mic preamps, plus a total of 14 inputs and 16 outputs. Discrete 8 Synergy Core also features dual DSP chips and an FPGA processor along with eight console-grade, discreet mic preamps. Its connectivity count totals 26 inputs and 30 outputs. The AD/DA conversion delivers 130dB of dynamic range. It also features a user-friendly footswitch jack which is said to speed up workflow. Both audio interfaces include a library of 36 real-time FPGA FX.

Three new effects have been added to coincide with the release of Discrete 4 and Discrete 8 Synergy Core. The Opto-2A is said to capture all the nuances of an electro-optical compressor from the 1960s; Space Flanger produces phases, sweeps and swooshes; and Vari-Speed Tremolo reportedly provides a fresh and modern take on vintage tremolos with a five-position wave selector and the addition of a Vari-Speed Rate knob.

Orion Studio Synergy Core, meanwhile, offers both Thunderbolt 3 and USB 2.0 connections to the DAW host computer and low-latency drivers for both Mac and Windows. Included are six ARM-based DSP processors and two proprietary FPGA chips. The 32 channel strips are each able to host up to eight effects slots, potentially allowing for 256 effects in a given session.

The manufacturer has also released the Goliath HD | Gen 3 audio interface which works with any DAW, connecting to Mac and Windows computers with 192kHz audio over Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, HDX and MADI. The interface includes Antelope’s HDX Compensation Delay technology that is said to ensure any analogue or digital input entering Pro Tools arrives as a fully sample-accurate signal source. The Thunderbolt driver delivers 64 channels of simultaneous playback and recording at up to sub-millisecond latency. I/O includes 16 Accusonic mic preamps, two analogue inserts and four instrument inputs. There are 16 analogue inputs via two D-Sub 25 connectors (with 124dB DNR) and 32 analogue outputs over four D-Sub 25 connectors (with 129dB DNR).
