The Discrete 4 Synergy Core from Antelope is a four-channel audio interface with onboard DSP and FPGA to free up valuable CPU from your computer during mix sessions. It also includes 36 FPGA-powered effects, some of which can be used with Antelope modeling microphones, giving you the sound of multiple vintage microphones at a fraction of the cost of real-world hardware.

The Discrete 4 offers four Class-A preamps that provide console-grade sound. All of them utilize combination XLR-1/4" connections, but two of them are specifically designed to switch between mic level, line level, and Hi-Z sources. Monitor outputs and two pairs of line outputs can be found on the back of the unit, as can thunderbolt and USB ports for connecting to computers.

S/PDIF and ADAT are both provided over optical I/O. The unit is expandable over ADAT, giving you up to eight extra channels. This is Antelope, so you'll find their top-notch 64-bit acoustically focused clocking on the unit, and you can sync the Discrete 4 over BNC connections, or distribute clocking to other units.

36 Synergy Core FX Included

 

The Discrete 4 Synergy Core includes a compelling library of 36 real-time studio effects, meticulously modeled after real-world hardware. Latency is painlessly low thanks to FPGA's parallel computing capabilities, DSP processing, and fast Thunderbolt connectivity. The library can be expanded to include any effects you choose from the web store.

Mic-Modeling Ready

The Discrete 4 Synergy Core's Accusonic 3D modeling engine lets you transform the—separately available—Antelope Audio Edge and Verge modeling microphones into expensive-sounding vintage replicas. Change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and rare microphones as you monitor and record live, bringing out the musician's finest performance.

Sturdy and Portable

Housed in a machined aluminum chassis, each unit is hand-built in a European facility to strict standards, using component choices and extensive quality control.

Multiple Avenues of Connectivity

With an abundance of analog and digital connectivity, as well as both USB and Thunderbolt ports for computer connection, the Discrete 4 Synergy Core presents many options for routing signals. Four microphone inputs, four line outputs, a pair of monitor outputs, four headphone outputs, and S/PDIF are at your disposal. Digital expandability is possible via ADAT chaining. Furthermore, a pair of Word Clock outputs let you distribute the interface's highly stable clock signal across your studio.
