With 16 Class-A mic preamps, extensive analog and digital connectivity, and 69 included hardware-based FPGA effects, the Antelope Goliath HD | Gen 3 is a powerful 64-channel Thunderbolt 2 / USB 3.0 / HDX audio interface designed to function as the hub of your studio or live recording setup.

The Goliath HD | Gen 3 offers 24-bit / 192 kHz AD/DA conversion, Hi-Z inputs and reamp outputs for flexible guitar and bass recording, a mastering-grade monitor output with an impressive 136 dB of dynamic range, two independent headphone outputs, and digital I/O via MADI, ADAT, AES/EBU, and S/PDIF.

Precise clocking is provided by Antelope's 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology which ensures low jitter and enables a natural and detailed sound. The Goliath HD | Gen 3 is equipped with an FPGA chip, which allows for the creation of low-latency mixes, routing, and FX modeling. The unit comes with a library of classic hardware EQs, compressors, and the AuraVerb reverb. It opens a variety of creative options such as monitor mixing with reverb, tracking through EQ and compression, and routing to external gear in real time.

All functions on the unit can be accessed from a high-resolution touchscreen control display with multichannel metering and easy access to preferences, presets, and clocking modes. The interface is fully controllable via an intuitive desktop app or from an iOS/Android mobile device. For complex and large-scale setups, all features are also accessible from multiple computers in the same network.

Note:
Use of the Mini-DigiLink HDX ports on the Goliath HD | Gen 3 requires the purchase of Antelope's optional HDX activation.
