Antelope ZEN TOUR Overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit includes the Antelope Zen Tour portable Thunderbolt/USB audio interface and an Antelope Edge Solo large-diaphragm cardioid condenser modeling microphone. With four mic/line inputs, resolution up to 24-bit / 192 kHz, a slew of effects, and separate outputs for multiple monitors and headphones, the kit is well suited for vocalists, musicians, and producers in home, project, or commercial recording studios. Guitarists and bassists also will appreciate its four Hi-Z inputs, two reamp outputs, and versatile guitar amp/cab simulations.

  • Antelope Zen Tour Portable Thunderbolt/USB Audio Interface

    The Zen Tour Portable Thunderbolt from Antelope is an eight-channel table-top interface designed to allow multiple instruments and sound-sources to be recorded simultaneously in virtually any place with power. As such, it suits the needs of small bands, combos, or anyone else looking to record a group of instrumentalists on the go.

    The unit sports four combination mic/line inputs, four line/Hi-Z inputs, two outputs specifically geared toward reamping instrument-level signals, two headphone outputs for private monitoring, and a host of digital connection options; whether you utilize USB, Thunderbolt, S/PDIF, or ADAT, the Zen Tour has you covered on the digital side. Other features abound, such as a touchscreen control display and a talkback button for communicating with those using the headphone outputs whilst recording. Furthermore, the unit can be controlled from various connection points, such as multiple computers, or mobile devices utilizing the appropriate apps.

    Antelope Clocking
    The Zen Tour features the same 64-bit DDS acoustically-focused clocking found on other Antelope models, as well as wordclock I/Os.
    Low Latency
    The Zen Tour utilizes a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) to instantiate hefty parallel processing, allowing for low-latency operation.
    Included Vintage FX
    The Zen Tour offers Antelope's hardware-based guitar amp and cabinet simulations, as well as a Pultec-style EQ and the AuraVerb reverb module.
    Remote Connections
    An OS X- and Windows-compatible software control panel allows you to manage all Zen Tour features from multiple computers in the same network. This feature extends to tablets and smartphones as well.

  • Antelope Edge Solo Large-Diaphragm Cardioid Modeling Microphone

    The Antelope Edge Solo is a large-diaphragm condenser primarily designed to be used with Antelope's microphone modeling technology. This technology emulates the characteristics of various vintage and classic microphones.

    The Solo sports a cardioid polar pattern, and as such, models the characteristic of classic cardioid mics. The mic itself sports a 1.3" gold-sputtered membrane and captures frequencies between 20 Hz to 20 kHz. It does this transparently thanks to its low-resonance construction.

    The mic is designed to work with Antelope's interfaces, and as such, comes with the commensurate FPGA-based emulations. However, the mic also works with third-party interfaces, and that's why Antelope has included native plug-ins that work with Mac and Windows systems, so long as you have an iLok 2 or iLok 3. The Edge Solo includes a hard mount and a standard case.

    Single Capsule, Single-Membrane Construction
    Housed in a specially designed low-resonance body with a sleek matte black finish, the Edge Solo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered capsule.
    Included FPGA and Native Emulations
    The Edge emulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope's own precision mic preamps and converters. The Edge Solo can be used with any of Antelope Audio's mic preamp-equipped interfaces, whose built-in FPGA processing capabilities allow real-time vintage mic emulation.

    However, the mic also includes Antelope's native mic emulation plug-ins, meaning you can use any third-party audio interface, and even change modeling settings after recording. Available in VST, AU, and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope's native AFX plug-ins provide minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling, and precise floating-point calculations. An iLok 2 or iLok 3 is required for these emulations, and it is available separately.
