Antelope Audio Orion 32+ Thunderbolt Recording Interface  From Antelope

Taking Antelope's incredibly successful 32 channel Orion AD/DA interface and making it even BETTER, the Orion 32+ offers incredibly fast Thunderbolt connection for less latency and more stability! Still offers USB connectivity as well. *Includes a Free Copy of Presonus Studio One Artist*

What We Think

The original Orion lead the pack with it’s very impressive 32 In 32 Out. Now, the Orion 32+ takes the industry-leading interface to the next level by offering Thunderbolt connectivity for incredibly low latency, faster transfer speeds, and even more interfacing stability. I actually love the fact that they still included USB connectivity, as if you’re like me and have an older laptop without USB for portable recording and a more modern Thunderbolt equipped desktop in my studio, I’m now able to use the same world-class interface in every recording environment I’d find myself in. 
While the Orion32+ packs tons of great features for an all-in-one interface (onboard DSP engine, mastering-grade monitor outputs, Antelope’s advanced jitter-management tech), the real game-changing update is the addition of Thunderbolt and the significantly reduced latency it provides.

Manufacturer's Description from Antelope

Versatile Connectivity Options

Orion32 + is a successor to the world’s first 32-channel AD/DA, now offering a greater variety of interfaces such as ThunderboltTM, MADI and USB. The digital connectivity options are complimented also by ADAT and S/PDIF.

Orion32 + provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, allowing for low latency simultaneous I/O streaming of 32 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio signal. The analog I/O are handled by 8 D-Sub 25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for the monitoring.

Enhanced Routing, Mixing and Monitoring

Orion32 + offers stunning flexibility and great productivity, providing a color-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers, built-in DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. The entire control is gathered in a desktop application available for both OS X and Windows.

The control panel is based on the software created initially for Orion32 and further developed for another Antelope Audio leading product, Zen Studio. Orion32+ control panel is an extremely intuitive user-friendly interface, which incorporates both our know-how and customers’ feedback.

Antelope’s Conversion and Clocking Legacy

The proven clocking accuracy is supported by Antelope’s renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, the same as with the flagship Trinity Master Clock.

The 10 MHz input, enabling connectivity to Antelope’s legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX, makes Orion32+ crystal oscillator remarkably precise, emphasizing the signature Antelope sound. The two word clock outputs make Orion32+ a great fit in any setup, not only as an interface, but a master clock as well.

The clean, transparent and detailed conversion in Orion32+ is the same as with its predecessor, which has proved its sound quality in a great number of studios and live shows across the Globe.
