Leading professional audio gear manufacturer Antelope Audio [Booth 257] announced that it will be exhibiting at Summer NAMM, showcasing Zen Studio: its revolutionary new portable audio interface that features a total of 38 simultaneous inputs — including 12 studio grade mic pres — and 32 outputs. The Zen Studio, which also includes Antelope's best in class clocking functionality and unprecedented channel routing, began shipping last month and is priced at just $2,495.
Antelope will conduct demonstrations between Thursday, July 17th and Saturday, July 19th, focusing on the various features and functionality of the Zen — including its powerful control panel, which makes it the perfect tool whether you are on the road or in the studio. Similar to other Antelope Audio products, Zen Studio has already attracted a high profile user base, including multiple GRAMMY Award® winning engineer Brian Vibberts [Aerosmith, Garth Brooks] and Ryan Shanahan [Lady Gaga, Orianthi].
In addition to Zen Studio, Antelope Audio will also demonstrate its Orion32 multi-channel interface, which features 32 channels of 192 kHz I/O through USB in a single 1U rack space unit. The Orion32 is a centerpiece in the playback rigs for artists such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake, and routinely used within the mixing and mastering studios of engineers like Eric Sarafin (aka Mixerman), Howie Weinberg and many others.
Going Mobile: Zen Studio and You
Zen is a world-class quality interface that easily fits inside a backpack or gear bag and is perfectly suited for traveling musicians, location sound engineers, field recordists and many other end users seeking the ultimate in portability and sound quality. Equally useful as a stand alone device or as the perfect companion to an Orion32, Zen was born out of the need for a studio-quality portable recording solution that can go anywhere.
