ANTELOPE AUDIO GOLIATH GROWS
Antelope Audio’s Goliath HD is bigger than ever. Featuring 64 channels of high-quality audio I/O and upgrades including the adaptable new Accusonic preamps, follows the launch of Antelope’s Orion32 HD.
“With the launch of Goliath HD, even the most sophisticated studios can access the market leading features and innovations that only Antelope Audio interfaces can provide,” says Igor Levin, CEO of Antelope Audio. “Goliath HD — which works seamlessly in Pro Tools environments — is an uncompromising studio tool that improves overall sound quality while vastly expanding overall functionality.”
Goliath HD talks to your computer via Thunderbolt or USB 3.0. It has dual MADI connections onboard. The 16 Accusonic mic preamps each get their own volume control on the front panel for quick dial-ins. Analogue inputs boast an impressive dynamic range of 124dB with state analogue output dynamic range of 129dB. Other specialised I/O include four guitar DI inputs, two transformer-based re-amp outputs, a built-in talkback mic, two headphones output, and a pair of analogue inserts.
Antelope Audio says the Goliath HD sports the lowest THD available in a multi-channel interface across all 64 of its channels of input and output. Powered by advanced ESS chips and Antelope’s 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter-management technology, it also sets a new standard in digital conversion clarity. To further refine the recording experience for Pro Tools HD users, Antelope’s HDX Delay Compensation makes sure any analogue or digital input arrives in Pro Tools HD sample accurately in the timeline. Apps for iOS and Android let you adjust a number of Goliath HD’s parameters via your smartphone.
