This third-generation, improved interface sets new standards in the pro audio industry by virtue of Antelope Audio’s acclaimed AD/DA being boosted to reach an astonishing 136dB of dynamic range! Like its innovative predecessors, Orion 32HD | Gen 3is also an amazingly versatile audio interface. It works like a charm with any DAW on the market. Comprehensive connectivity makes streaming hi-res audio a digital delight, thanks to its back panel-positioned USB 3.0Type B connector (offering 64 channels of I/O at up to 192 kHz) and also two mini HDX connectors for direct Pro Tools connection (each offering 32 channels of I/O, totalling 64 channels). Further flexibility abounds as digital I/O is also available over fiber optic MADI(IN and OUT— up to 64 channels each), two ADAT (IN 1 and IN 2, and OUT 1 and OUT 2— both with up to 64 channels), and S/PDIF (IN and OUT) connections. Obligingly, Orion 32HD | Gen 3not only enables users to stream an astounding 64 channels of audio when tracking, but also allows for multiple monitor mixes. Moreover, the sound is detailed, natural, pleasing, and transparent when monitoring.
Jet-setting, top-tier audio professionals as well as those working closer to home — or even at home — will, no doubt, delight in the unbeatable clocking accuracy of Orion 32HD | Gen 3 provided by Antelope Audio’s acclaimed 64-bit AFC(Acoustically Focused Clocking) jitter management technology. That should, however, hardly be surprising since Antelope Audio clocking has decades-long reputation for excellence in both stability and sonic improvement, insofar as transients will surely shine like never before and achieving a stereo image with incomparable depth and detail duly comes naturally. Needless to say, sonic perfection is clearly a given, with a crystal-clear high-end literally like no other!
Orion 32HD | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity, providing a color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero-latency monitoring. All are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows. It is even possible to use that intuitive software control panel from multiple computers connected over the same network to amplify an already flexible workflow!
While the original Orion 32HD set a new price/performance standard for HDX-compatible I/O, industry-leading conversion and exceptional connectivity for the price ensure expectations are redefined once again with the Orion 32HD | Gen 3. It includes all the power of the original, now upgraded with Antelope Audio’s flagship-level AD/DA conversion. Combining all that with a refreshed design and a wide range of real- time, FPGA-powered effects ensure that the Orion 32HD | Gen 3 will make productions and live shows shine forth for all to truly hear!
