With 64 channels of Thunderbolt connectivity, a vast array of routing options and sophisticated software and DSP capabilities, users are able to exert more creative control over their recordings than ever before. In addition to its pristine, commercial-grade AD/DA converters, Goliath also features 4 superb instrument DIs and 2 transformer Reamp outputs on the front. The unit also features 24 line level outputs and 16 line inputs, all on DB25 connectors — making it ideal for tasks requiring hardware inputs or summing. Combined with this impressive feature set, the addition of 16 channels of Class-A microphone preamplifiers makes Goliath more flexible, capable and expressive than any other interface on the market.
First Rate Hardware-Based FX and Clocking Engines
All Antelope interfaces including Goliath feature Antelope’s unique and powerful hardware-based audio effects platform. This custom FPGA -based (Field Programmable Gate Array) platform not only guarantees the lowest sound latency on the market when creating and streaming multiple mixes, but provides Antelope’s devices with massive hardware modeling capabilities.
It includes a constantly growing library of over 35 effects: vintage and contemporary guitar amp & cab simulations developed in collaboration with Overloud, plus Antelope’s very own enhanced versions of legendary studio gear.
These effects include the stunning new AuraVerb reverb, along with several other modern and vintage hardware, EQ and compressor models. Antelope's RealModel technology helps create the most accurate modeling of components, creating an authentic sound experience of classic analog gear.
To ensure clocking stability and crystal clear performance, Goliath utilizes Antelope's proprietary Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management algorithm and oven-controlled crystal oscillator — the same clocking technology used in top mastering studios around the world.
Intelligent, Hands-On Creative Control
With intelligent, tactile controls and a supremely intuitive software user interface, Goliath places full creative control and easy operation in the hands of the user. The physical unit includes dedicated knobs for mic pre gain and instrument inputs, as well as large, assignable knobs for stereo, surround, or headphone monitor outputs. There are also dedicated buttons for talkback, mono and mute, as well as a flexible 'Antelope' button.
Goliath's included control software enables users to easily route any input to any output using a color-coded routing matrix, which also allows users to save up to five presets. Using the system's iOS and Android compatible applications, users can easily go wireless — making it easy to stay in command of Goliath's robust feature set at all times.
Massive hardware modeling capabilities
Already leaders in the field of digital audio clocking Antelope Audio is now on a mission to revolutionize the world of digital audio interfaces. Our custom Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) not only guarantees the lowest sound latency on the market when creating and streaming multiple mixes, but provides our devices with massive hardware modeling capabilities.
Forget about expensive effects
They often sound flat and soulless and can be quite a pain to your computer. Antelope Audio's FPGA effects bring audio realism to a new level. They sound, behave and feel just like real hardware gear, because they ARE real hardware gear.
