    All Antelope interfaces 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 Antelope’s very own enhanced versions of legendary studio gear.

    Zen Studio is powered by Antelope Audio Acoustically Focused Clocking, providing the most analog-sounding A/D & D/A conversion on the market. Zen is enhanced by Antelope's battle-tested USB technology, as in the top-selling 32-channel Orion interface which is the centerpiece of the live playback rigs for artists such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.

    Zen Studio DSP is based on a custom FPGA device with massive parallel processing capabilities – eight times more powerful than DSP chips used in similar devices. The unit is fully controllable using an intuitive desktop application on both PC and Mac, offering flexible signal routing and DSP-based Effects along side custom presets.

    All audio I/O is available simultaneously for a total of 38 possible input and 32 output channels, plus 24 simultaneous I/O channels via USB. Users can create up to four independent zero-latency mixes assignable to any outputs, including the two independent headphone outputs and monitor outputs.
