Product Description

An ultra fast high-end preamp for your studio, the Discrete 4 features vintage gear emulation. The console-grade Discrete 4 microphone preamp was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine transforms its already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into several classic units. It’s all happening real-time and with as authentic responsiveness as possible.

Bringing All-Star Technology & Performance to a new audience:
Antelope Audio’s Discrete 4 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 4 console-grade, 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 4 features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.

The Antelope AFX platform is based on a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 4 includes Accusonic microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which are now accessible in the DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Discrete 4 is a 14 in and 20 out interface featuring 4 analog ins, 4 analog line outs, stereo monitor outs, 4 headphone outs and 2 ReAmps. Additional digital connectivity comes on S/PDIF and 2 ADAT’s.

An Entire Signal Path of Customizable Sonic Excellence:
Discrete 4 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. Its console-grade and fully discrete preamps were hand designed to offer world-class sound. The powerful Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into classic units via Tube, Transformer and FET based circuitry. It's all happening real-time.

Both the engineer and the performer can instantly hear the authentic blends of 10 different mic preamps without any latency or annoying comb filtering. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to experiment with different preamp models during mixing. The entire signal path was designed for optimal sound with any microphone and it really shines with Antelope’s new Edge and Verge microphones. These new microphones were specially designed for the Discrete 4 preamps and feature matching discrete electronics.

The real-time FPGA platform offers a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, Reverb and latency free Monitoring. All this backed up by Antelope's signature Clocking and combined into one unified system with instantly recallable Presets. You can even load AFX Presets from VIP Masters with their favorite combinations of FPGA FX that are used daily on their own award-winning mixes.

A Breakthrough Discrete Microphone Preamp Design:
Traditionally, interface preamps are comprised of only 2 transistors, which makes them a hybrid between transistors and IC chips. Antelope Audio incorporates a fully discrete design consisting of 6 accurately matched transistors, yet maintaining the advantages of digital control and repeatability of gain levels. Field effect transistors add an expensive-sounding touch of warmth and naturalness to the sound. Bipolar transistors keep THD and noise extremely low, which is quite uncommon in a discrete design.

Antelope’s console grade 6-transistor discrete preamp is exceptional and unique. The Discrete 4 mic preamps were the first step of the device design process. Unlike other units where mic preamps are added to the interface, the Discrete 4 preamps are actually what the device is centered around.

Premium FX Pack:
The Premium FX pack allows you to employ the full studio power of the Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. The collection features authentic models of iconic studio units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, LANG and Grove Hill.

The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack allows you to use 4 channel strips with 4 FX instances each and up to 16 channel strips using the new AFX2DAW plug-in. The Premium FX library features 60+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX, including Vintage EQs, Compressors, AuraVerb, Guitar Amps & Cabinet models.

Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin:
Plug in your guitar directly into one of the hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with some of the most iconic guitar amps and cabinets around. Then add vintage compression, EQ and AuraVerb to hear a finished studio quality result with real-time responsiveness while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet and microphone combination. Perform and record either with FX or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects.
