全明星技术及性能

Antelope Audio的Discrete 8 话放接口可为家庭录音棚和移动录音师提供新一级的卓越音质和强大势力。
Discrete 8配备了8个控制台级别6个晶体管离散式的前置放大器,121db动态范围转换器和坚固的时钟。

” Discrete 8和Edge是一对梦幻组合。Antelope Audio 通过挑战证明:麦克风建模并非高不可攀。Discrete 8 是一款极好的音频接口,它凭借自身实力,带有令人称赞的效果器、音色迷人的前置放大器、精准的时钟……。而搭配Edge之后,更是踏上更高的台阶。更重要的是,这两个产品捆绑销售的价格,也同样令人心动。”

Matt Vanacoro, 是纽约最杰出的音乐家之一。无论是在录音棚里或者在舞台上,他作为键盘手同许多艺术家合作过,比如Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater)、Mark Wood (Trans-Siberian Orchestra)、Mark Rivera (Billy Joel Band)、Aaron Carter等。

Discrete 8's features:

可定制声波卓越性

控制台级别及完全离散式前置放大器,打造世界顶级的音质。

Discrete 8是对传奇的麦克风前置放大器线路进行广泛研究之后而开发的。Antelope Audio FPGA芯片驱动效果器可以将那些价格昂贵的音频Accusonic(阿克索尼)前置放大器实时转换成大量的经典设备。可使用或不使用Accusonic建模功能来录音麦克风声源,这允许录音师在制作混音期间在各种前置放大器型号之间进行选择。

ENJOY THE SOUND OF LEGENDARY FX GEAR IN YOUR DAW

Discrete 8配备了所有Antelope Audio的顶级实时FPGA FX功能

其中包括来自BAE、Lang、Gyraf Audio等品牌的正品型号。
Antelope AFX平台是一个快速扩展的硬件建模引擎。Discrete 8包括Accusonic 3D麦克风和前置放大器型号、吉他放大器、变压器和管道FX、以及众多经典复古的装置,现可通过新的AFX2DAW(单独售卖)插件进入DAW。

Giving you complete control

Transform Edge & Verge
into vintage replicas

Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

ANTELOPE-STYLE CLOCKING

Proprietary clocking
& secret jitter management technologies

Discrete 8 is designed as a professional clocking solution in its own right. It features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from highly acclaimed clock units like Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock and Pure2. Discrete 8 comes with a Word Clock (WC) Input that can de-jitter and distribute an external clock signal. Three WC outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF. Discrete 8 will make sure all your gear is perfectly synced.

EXPERT LEVEL MONITORING

Maintain multiple mixes and exchange presets

Monitoring and Talkback sections in Discrete 8 are easy to set. Up to 4 individual monitoring mixes can be sent to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without FPGA FX. Custom headphone mixes might be tailored for each performer. Vintage EQ, Compression and guitar amps allow the artists to hear a sound as close to the final product as possible.

Discrete 8 can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with the entire Antelope line of FPGA equipped pro audio interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other Antelope users or see how the pros are setting up their sessions.

ADVANCED REMOTE CONTROL

Control Discrete 8 with the EasyPanel
or free iOS and Android mobile apps

The Discrete 8 downloadable remote App allows you to adjust all microphone input levels, Talkback levels, as well as Monitoring and Headphone volumes. Musicians can now control their own headphone volume through their phones. The engineer can check input levels from the tracking room. The device can be accessed from different computers connected to the same network.
