With 16 Class-A mic pres, extensive analog & digital connectivity and an array of integrated hardware-based FPGA effects, the Goliath Thunderbolt, USB & MADI Audio Interface from Antelope is designed to function as the hub of your studio or live recording setup.
Antelope's Thunderbolt custom circuit allows for 64 channels of conversion or 32 channels via high-speed USB 2.0 (for Windows users who do not have Thunderbolt capabilities), with zero latency in either configuration. Channels can be routed to a large selection of I/O options, including MADI, AES/EBU, ADAT, and S/PDIF. The signature Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) fourth-generation algorithm delivers precise clocking for low jitter, resulting in a natural and detailed sound. BNC connectors provide word clock I/Os.
The FPGA-based DSP engine enables you to process four zero-latency mixers with custom effects, opening up a variety of creative options such as monitor-mixing with reverb, tracking through modeled EQ & compression and routing to external gear, in near real-time. Using the four front-panel DI's, guitar players can take advantage of Overloud Audio Tools' suite of pre-loaded vintage amps and cabinet simulations and, with Antelope's RealModel technology that allows for stacks of effects to be chained, play live through the chain without feeling any lag. Musicians will also appreciate the ability to route recorded guitars and other audio through the two re-amp outputs to external pedals and instrument processors.
All functions on the unit can be accessed from an intuitive high-resolution touchscreen control display, or from a smartphone or tablet via the iOS and Android apps. All features are also accessible from multiple computers in the same network. Conveniently located on the front panel are two headphone outs, a mute button, a mono button and a talkback button.
