ANTELOPE AUDIO ZEN STUDIO+
Antelope Audio has released the Zen Studio+ which will make its debut at Pro Light + Sound in Guangzhou later this month. The interface includes 12 built-in mic preamps, Thunderbolt connectivity, and a range of hardware-based FPGA effects in a single 1U rack unit. Further expandability comes by way of ADAT and S/PDIF inputs. Dedicated re-amp outputs can be found on the front of the unit, as well as headphone outputs and high dynamic range monitor outputs. Zen Studio+ also features built-in talkback capability and a customisable routing matrix. As always, Antelope totes its second-to-none 64-bit clocking as a major asset to the Zen Studio+. The interface can be controlled via a desktop app for OS X or Windows, allowing access to a full customisable signal routing matrix and up to four independent mixes for monitoring and full control of the FPGA effects. An iOS/Android app gives you the option to turn your smartphone’s microphone into the talkback device.
