  • Ultra-low latency Thunderbolt 3 connection.
  • Enhanced FX processing capabilities.
  • Latest generation A/D converters.


Antelope Discrete 8 Pro Synergy Core Features:

  • Conversion & Clocking
    • Class-leading AD/DA conversion with up to 130dB of headroom.
    • Recording, mixing and playback at up to 24-bit/192kHz.
    • Proprietary 64-bit AFC™ (Acoustically Focused Clocking) technology & Jitter Management algorithm delivering increased sound width, separation, and detail.
  • Connectivity
    • 8 × Discrete 6-transistor preamps with 65dB of gain for pristine recordings. All work as microphone/line and two are also Hi-Z inputs, on combo XLR jacks, and supply 48V of phantom power.
    • 8 × DC-coupled line outputs over D-Sub 25.
    • Two reamp outputs on TRS ¼ jacks for further amp processing of guitar signal. They can also be used as an additional stereo monitor output – this allows you to have two pairs of monitor speakers playing together simultaneously.
    • Thunderbolt™ 3 and USB 2.0 port with custom macOS & Windows drivers.
    • Digitally expandable over ADAT I/O, with 16 channels available.
    • Digitally expandable over S/PDIF I/O, with 2 channels available.
    • Three word clock outputs letting you distribute the interface’s highly stable clock signal across your studio and a word clock input allowing you to sync the Discrete 8 Pro Synergy Core with other gear.
    • Footswitch input that can be used as a single footswitch (on 1/4” TS jack) to control the dim function and a dual footswitch to control both the talkback and dim functions.
    • Two stereo headphone outputs with separate gain control.
    • Dedicated stereo monitor output over TRS.
  • Workflow-enhancing features
    • Direct monitoring with Synergy Core effects, processed in real-time with imperceptible latency.
    • Expanded routing capabilities – switch audio sources per channel based on a drop-down menu sequence or make use of a virtual routing matrix.
    • Customizable presets with signal routing, level adjustments, mixer and effects settings.
    • Customizable monitoring mixes with adjustable volume, pan and reverb.
    • Easily accessible front-panel talkback with built-in microphone.
    • Front panel with independent headphone and monitor volume knobs and buttons for sample rate configuration, and hands-on control of core parameters. Hardware relay-based gain knobs for each preamp, plus mode control (mic/line/Hi-Z) via push sequence.
    • Option to work without being connected to a computer (standalone operation).
    • Wireless control of software features from a separate computer connected to the same network.
  • Real-time effects processing
    • Collection of 37 Synergy Core effects modeled after classic and rare analog outboard gear.
    • Synergy Core proprietary onboard platform powered by 2 × DSP & 1 × FPGA chips for real-time effects processing with imperceptible latency.
    • Modeling Engine allowing pairing with the Edge line of microphones for real-time use of vintage microphone emulations
  • 37 effects included: More info here
