The MP32 from Antelope Audio is a 32-channel console-grade microphone preamp with integrated software remote control and Antelope Audio’s exciting new approach to analog circuit design! The rave reviews shared by several top audio engineers regarding the quality of the 12 mic preamps in the portable audio interface Zen Studio urged Antelope Audio to expand further and create a 32-channel mic preamp housed in only two rack spaces.
They designed MP32 to be a perfect match for the top-selling audio interface Orion32 or its Thunderbolt successor Orion32+. This ensures a full transparency of the sound and complete integrity of the signal via the whole chain, from the mic pres through the conversion, recording and playback, all of them characterized by the signature Antelope sound.
Antelope Audio MP32 32 Channel Microphone Preamp Features
- 32 MIC PRES: MP32 features 32 Class-A mic preamps; Hi-Z, line, mic compatible
- DIGITAL REMOTE CONTROL: Control the MP32’s input types, gain levels, routing and presets via a user-friendly app
- 32-CHANNEL OUTS: 32-channel outputs handled by four D-Sub 25 connectors
- PHANTOM POWER: Independently assignable phantom power
- FULL SPEED: USB Full Speed interface for software control panel
- FULL CONTROL: Intuitive Control Panel for Windows and OS X
The combination of the Orion32 and MP32 — totaling just 3U in rack space — make it a perfectly suited solution for studios and live recording where rack space can be a precious commodity.
MP32 features 32 class-A mic pres with phantom power, 32 line inputs, of which 4 can operate as Hi-Z instrument inputs. All inputs are XLR combos on the front panel of the MP32.
MP32’s mic preamps are open and transparent, yet designed to maintain both signal clarity and sonic realism consistently throughout the recording process. The MP32 offers excellent headroom and up to 68 dB of gain in 1 dB steps, more than enough to power even the most demanding ribbon mics, while maintaining ultra-low THD+N (-110.5 dB).
A user-friendly control panel for OS X or Windows allows for easy remote management of the device’s input types and mic gain levels. The intuitive software control panel provides fast set up and easy fine-tuning of individual mic preamp gain, as well as the independent assignment of phantom power and mic/line/hi-z switching.
Complex gain structure and preamp settings are made incredibly simple by the user-defined presets, just a mouse click away. In addition, individual V/U style metering allows for instant signal confirmation at a glance of the software.
