Introducing Synergy Core - Antelope Audio's next generation signal processing platform. Using FPGA's massive parallel computation capabilities and industry-standard DSP power combined, Synergy Core frees up your CPU while processing your FX with extremely low latency.

2x DSP + 1x FPGA chips let the Discrete 8 Synergy Core handle up to 8 FX channel strips X 8 FX slots each for a maximum of 64 FX instances at any sample rate. That's eight times the processing power of the Discrete 8 Basic.

Analog & Digital Connectivity

8 x 14 Rackmount audio interface with Thunderbolt & USB connection for Mac/Windows;
Eight Discrete console-grade 6-transistor preamps on combo XLR jacks for professional recordings. All work as microphone/line inputs, and two of them are Hi-Z compatible;
Eight DC-coupled analog output channels over a D-Sub 25 connector;
Two preamp outputs on TRS ¼ jacks for further amp processing of guitar signal
Thunderbolt 2 (up to 32 channels) and USB 2.0 (up to 24 channels) ports for native DAW application with custom macOS & Windows drivers;
Digitally expandable over ADAT (up to 16 channels) and SPDIF (up to 2 channels);
Three-word clock outputs letting you distribute the interface’s highly stable clock signal across your studio and a word clock input allowing you to sync the Discrete 8 Synergy Core with other gear.
Footswitch input that can be used as a single footswitch (on 1/4” TS jack) to control the dim function and a dual footswitch to control both the talkback and dim functions;
Two headphone outputs;
A pair of monitor outputs;

Clocking & Conversion

Proprietary 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology for increased width, separation, and detail in musical performances;
Proprietary Jitter Management algorithm delivering truthful and expanded soundstage;
Ultra-accurate A/D and D/A conversion ensure lush, bold, & expansive recordings and reproduction of your instruments and vocals.

Onboard Real-Time Effects

Collection of 36 analog-modeled effects featuring classic as well as rare compressors, EQs, mic preamps, and guitar amps and cabs;
2xDSP, 1×FPGA Synergy Core proprietary onboard real-time platform for effects processing with imperceptible latency;
Up to 64 effects instances per session loaded simultaneously on 8 individual virtual racks.

Workflow-Enhancing Features
Simplified routing - switch audio sources per channel based on a drop-down menu sequence.
Easily adjust the monitor mixes for the monitor output and separate headphone mix that can be split into individual cue mixes and sub-mixes while applying pan, reverb, other effects, and stereo link.
Customizable presets complete with signal routing, level adjustments, mixer settings, and sub-mixes.
Direct hardware monitoring with effects, processed in real-time with imperceptible latency.
Easily accessible front-panel talkback with a built-in microphone.
Front panel with independent headphone and monitor volume knobs and buttons for frequency adjustment, and hands-on control of core parameters. Hardware relay-based gain knobs for each preamp, plus mode control (mic/line/Hi-Z) via push sequence.
Option to work without being connected to a computer (standalone operation).
Wireless control of software features from a separate computer connected to the same network.
