Customers can purchase additional effects as they deem fit, as well as invest in the AFX2DAW software bridge which lets them use on-board processed, low-latency effects as inserts in their preferred digital audio workstation.64-CHANNELS OF AUDIO VIA THUNDERBOLT™Orion 32+ | Gen 3 provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, with low-latency, simultaneous streaming of 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio via ThunderboltTM and 32 channels via USB. The analog I/O are handled by 8 DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for monitoring. Digital connectivity options are complemented by ADAT and S/PDIF.EXTENSIVE FLEXIBILITYOrion 32+ | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity. A color-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero latency monitoring is provided. The routing matrix, mixers, and control panel are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.HIGH-END CLOCKING & CONVERSIONDigital clarity meets analog musicality to form the signature Antelope Audio sound.Our proven clocking accuracy is ensured by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology. A 10 MHz input enables connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX. That, and a pair of word clock outputs make the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 a great fit in any setup - not just as an interface, but as a premium master clock as well.REDESIGNED SOFTWARE PANELControl all Orion 32+ | Gen 3 features and functionality from its intuitive desktop app. macOS and Windows compatible, it implements Antelope Audio’s networking control concept to let you access the interface from multiple computers in the same network. For added convenience and flexibility, the control panels are freely movable and resizable, facilitating multi-screen workflows. Order today for state-of-the-art Thunderbolt conversion.
