Antelope Zen Go USB-C Interface

Antelope Audio puts its clock, powered plugins, converters and preamps into a bus-powered portable interface.

By

January 18, 2021

Antelope Audio is set to shake up the studio landscape with a high quality portable desktop interface package. The Zen Go Synergy Core features Antelope’s world-class 64-bit AFC proprietary clocking, combined with two discrete ‘ultra linear’ preamps, along with a professional conversion stage. All for well under A$1000 (A$699 / US$499 / 499 Euros).

‘Synergy Core’ is all about powering your plugins, and the Zen Go offers a generous 37 analogue modelled Antelope effects in the package, all DSP-powered by the Zen Go. 

Zen Go Synergy Core is a USB-C interface and Antelope’s first to be bus powered, if so desired.
