The Orion 32 from Antelope Audio is a groundbreaking AD/DA converter and audio maser clock combination, housed inside of a 1U rackmount design. It supports both MADI and USB interfaces, clocked by Antelope's renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology and oven controlled crystal oscillator.
Orion 32 allows 192 kHz I/O streaming of 32-channel digital audio through its custom-built USB chip, which provides simple connectivity to any USB-enabled DAW or computer. The converter also provides 32 channels of 96 kHz audio through its Fiber Optic MADI I/O connections, which can be used to connect with any suitably equipped MADI device.
Orion 32 also supports ADAT protocol by offering 16 I/O channels, for even greater compatibility with a large number of audio devices. The multi-channel converter inputs and outputs pass the analog signal through 8 D-SUB 25 I/O connectors
1U eco-friendly design
Orion 32 is packaged in a 1U enclosure with an eco-friendly power consumption of only 20 Watts. In addition to saving rack space and having very low heating levels, Orion 32 comes with an extremely reasonable pricing even for small home studio.
Antelope clocking for increased sonic accuracyOrion 32 is ideally suited to a sound engineer's needs for high quality, clean and transparent conversion, combining the efficiency of MADI and USB interfaces with the perfection of Antelope clocking.
In addition to being an extremely high quality audio converter, Orion 32 is also an audio master clock. The Orion 32 employs Antelope's proprietary 4th generation of AFC and oven controlled oscillator, both technologies that made Antelope Audio clocks an industry leader for accuracy and reliability in recording, mastering and post-production facilities around the world. The four word clock outs, together with the 10 MHz input, make Orion 32 ideally suited to be in the center of any project or high-end studio.
Exceptional routing flexibility
With its seamless digital routing options, the Orion 32 offers extended flexibility. The routing feature allows sound engineers to, for example, use the AD conversion and output the signal simultaneously both through the MADI and USB interfaces. The device is managed through a user-friendly desktop application available for both Windows and OS X. Moreover it is equipped with five preset buttons for fast and easy recall of favorite settings.
