Antelope Discrete 4 overview

  • 1Description

The Antelope Discrete 4 and Edge Bundle is an audio interface and microphone bundle offering flexible modeling and sonic customization, comprehensive I/O, and multiple real-time effects for bands, individual performers, and audio engineers in studios and mobile setups. The Discrete 4 Thunderbolt/USB 14x20 audio interface offers four discrete Accusonic microphone preamps, over 50 real-time effects, mic and preamp models, and support for sample rates up to 192 kHz.

The Edge large-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone utilizes dual edge-terminated capsules and multiple polar patterns, which can be adjusted during or after your recording. Select models of classic microphones and adjust mic characteristics to shape the sound to suit your preferences.

The real-time effects include guitar amps, vintage compressors, EQs, and reverb and can be used during tracking or mixing. The Premium FX Pack enables use of up to four FX instances on four channel strips and up to 16 channel strips in your DAW via the AFX2DAW plug-in.

  • Discrete 4 Thunderbolt/USB 14x20 Audio Interface with Premium FX Pack

    The Antelope Discrete 4 with Premium FX Pack is a Thunderbolt/USB 14x20 audio interface designed to provide high-end tracking and monitoring functions, real-time effects, and remote control capabilities for musicians and engineers in personal, project, and commercial recording studios and rehearsal spaces. It features 14 inputs, 20 outputs, a host of real-time effects and models, support for sample rates up to 192 kHz, and host connectivity via Thunderbolt and USB 2.0.

    Four XLR-1/4” combo jack inputs give you access to the four discrete Accusonic microphone preamps. There are also ADAT optical and S/PDIF coaxial digital inputs for accepting signal from devices such as digital mixers and A/D converters. Multiple 1/4" outputs include four independent front-panel headphone jacks, four rear-panel line outs, and two balanced monitor outputs. Additionally, there is one ADAT optical output and a S/PDIF coaxial 2-channel output.

    Over 50 real-time effects from guitar amps to vintage compressors can be used during tracking and mixing. The Premium FX Pack enables use of four channel strips, each with four FX instances. Use up to 16 channel strips in your DAW via the AFX2DAW plug-in. During tracking sessions, control recording and monitoring levels via a downloadable app for iOS and Android smartphones or tablets.

    Use Effects During Tracking and Mixing
    • Antelope Audio FPGA technology powers over 50 real-time effects. Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the AFX2DAW plug-in. These not only sound but respond just like real hardware thanks to the unit's component-based modeling platform.
    • Plug your guitar directly into one of the two the hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with guitar amps and cabinet models. Add compression, EQ, and AuraVerb while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet, and microphone combination.
    • Perform and record either with effects or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects.
    Over 50 Effects Included
    • Guitar Amps: Burnsphere (DE), Marcus II (US), Overange 120 (UK), Tweed Deluxe, Top30, Darkface, Modern, Plexi 59, Rock 75, Rock 22.10
    • EQ Legends: VEQ-55b, VEQ-STU 089, VEQ-STU 169, VEQ-STU 900, VEQ HA32C, BAE 1023, BAE 1084, NEU-W492, NEU-W495, NEU-PEV, VEQ-4K Black, VEQ-4K Brown, VEQ-4K Pink, VEQ-4K Orange, BAE 1073, VEQ-HLF, VEQ-1A, VMEQ-5, VEQ-55A, Lang PEQ2, UK-69, Parametric EQ
    • Vintage Compressors: X903, VCA160, Gyraf Gyratec X, Tube176, Grove Hill Liverpool, FET-A76, FET-A78, ALT-436C, BA-6A, SMT-100A, Stay-Levin, Tubechild670, PowerGate, FeedForward Compressor
    • Reverb: AuraVerb
    Customizable Signal Path
    • The Discrete 4's console-grade and fully discrete preamps were designed to offer high-end, customizable sound. The powerful Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these Accusonic preamps into several classic-sounding units via models of circuitry based on tubes, transformers, and FETs.
    • Both the engineer and the performer can instantly hear the blends of ten different mic preamps without any latency or comb filtering. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing. You can even load AFX presets from other users.
    Discrete Microphone Preamplifiers
    • Traditionally, interface preamps are comprised of two transistors, which makes them a hybrid between transistors and IC chips. Antelope Audio incorporates a fully discrete design consisting of six accurately matched transistors. Field effect transistors add a touch of warmth to the sound and bipolar transistors keep THD and noise extremely low.
    Accurate Clocking
    • The Discrete 4 features Antelope’s 4th generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from the acclaimed Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock, Pure2, Goliath, Orion, and Zen products. Two word clock outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF.
    Versatile Monitoring
    • Discrete 4 has a comprehensive and easy-to-configure monitoring and talkback section. A band can have up to four individual monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included sent to headphones or monitor outputs. The engineer can make custom headphone mixes for each performer. Effects can be included to allow artists to hear sound closer to what will be on the record.
    • Users can create custom presets to easily set up various tracking scenarios in a snap. The front panel features a monitor volume knob and dedicated knobs for each headphone output. Metering is viewable on the front panel display, inside the EasyPanel, and via the remote app.
    Remote Control
    • Use the Discrete 4 downloadable remote app to adjust all microphone input levels, talkback levels, and monitoring and headphone volumes remotely. Musicians can control their own headphone volume with their phones and the engineer can check input levels from the tracking room.
    Cross-Platform Compatibility
    • The Discrete 4 can be connected via Thunderbolt or USB 2.0 and is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems
  • Edge Large-Diaphragm Condenser Modeling Microphone

    The Antelope Edge is a microphone designed to be paired with Antelope’s FPGA hardware modeling to give you a digital, tonal emulation of acclaimed vintage microphones. This system relies on the company’s FPGA technology, which provides low latencies whilst recording, as well as an extremely light touch on the CPU side. The resulting behavior and timbre of these digital processes is similar to analog gear.

    The microphone itself features two edge-terminated capsules that provide a natural and smooth timbre, as well as fully discrete electronics. This is a large-diaphragm condenser microphone with gold-sputtered membranes employed on the capsules. It offers a full frequency response of 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The edge microphone, combined with Antelope's FPGA-based preamp modeling, compressors, and EQs, aims to give you the expressiveness, feel, and tone of famous vintage microphones.

    Accusonic 3D Modeling Engine
    With the included FPGA engine, you can emulate the sound of vintage microphones and exert control over proximity effect, off-axis response, polar pattern—during or after recording. You can choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live.
