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;
ConversionProprietary 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
Collection of 36 analog-modeled effects featuring
classic as well as rare compressors, EQs, mic preamps, and guitar amps and
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.
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
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
Wireless control of software features from a separate
computer connected to the same network.
