Manufacturer's Description from Antelope

For what it brought to the pro audio trade back in 2016, the original Zen Tour is still in a league of its own. Never before had the pro audio community enjoyed this kind of connectivity, sound quality and touchscreen control on a desktop unit. Hard to surpass it may be, but the all-new Zen Tour Synergy Core more than lives up to its ancestor's impressiveness.


Antelope's consummate Synergy Core FX processing is an obvious highlight of the new Zen Tour, but the 4x ARM DSP cores and 2x FPGA processors handling system I/O and as many as 256 instances of lifelike, low-latency audio effects merely scratch the surface! Familiar on the outside, the Zen Tour Synergy Core has been reimagined internally to establish new standards in audio quality and performance in its category.


With up to 130dB dynamic range on the monitor outputs and Antelope's signature Acoustically Focused Clocking technology, the AD/DA conversion bar is raised high. And then comes the connectivity. It's 8 preamp/combo inputs and 14 outputs (monitor, headphone, line, reamp) for the analog part, with ADAT & S/PDIF expandability adding a further 10 digital I/O channels.


For computer connection, both USB Type-B and Thunderbolt 3™ are found on the same unit and users of multiple computers/operating systems can switch connections on the fly. The touchscreen control borrowed from our flagship Goliath interfaces and the 36 Synergy Core FX included to get you started (incl. 11 guitar amps and cabs) make for a complete all-around solution for bands and producers both for desktop and on the go.


Put simply, the Zen Tour Synergy Core punches above any competing product with its unbeatable value and vast studio potential.
