Forget About Latency
Custom FPGA will allow you to create and stream multiple complex mixes and process audio with zero latency. Zen Tour borrows the powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Antelope Audio’s top-selling pro studio devices.This game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities, thus the lowest latency levels on the market.
Synergy Core Technology
Antelope Audio Synergy Core interfaces employ ARM DSP + FPGA chips in custom configurations to process tens of input/output audio streams and hundreds of low-latency studio effects without burdening your computer. With 4x DSP + 2x FPGA processors, Zen Tour Synergy Core achieves a new standard for real-time audio effects in its category.
36 Synergy Core FX Included
Zen Tour Synergy Core comes with 36 Synergy Core FX included: 2 Preamps • 4 Equalizers • 5 Compressors • 22 Guitar Amps & Cabs • 2 Utility FX • 1 Reverb
Giving your projects a flying start, Zen Tour Synergy Core includes a compelling library of 36 meticulously modeled real-time studio effects. It’s all happening inside your audio interface with the lowest possible latency – thanks to FPGA’s massive parallel computing capabilities, DSP processing, and fast Thunderbolt™ connectivity. The included library can be expanded to include any effects you choose from our web store.
Lots of Connections
Small footprint, big connectivity! Zen Tour Synergy Core offers a choice of 4 Instrument/Line inputs, 4 Mic/Line Ins, 8 Line Outs, 2 Monitor Outs, 2 Headphone Outs and 2 Re-Amp Outs, totalling 8 analog inputs and 14 outputs. The unit is digitally expandable over ADAT & SPDIF for an additional 10 digital input and 10 output channels. Additionally, all line outputs are DC-Coupled and ready for control voltage (CV) applications such as control of modular synthesizers. As a final touch, an integrated Talkback microphone lets you demo vocals and propel your voice to the live room.
4 Discrete Microphone Preamps
A proprietary design that honors the best of audio engineering practices, our fully discrete, ultra-linear microphone preamps have sound quality comparable to that of a great mixing desk. Musical and transparent, they perfectly complement the Antelope Audio Edge & Verge modeling microphones’ sonic characteristics to deliver the power of our Accusonic 3D mic modeling technology right on your desktop.
The pioneer of atomic clocking in pro audio, Antelope Audio incorporates 20+ years of expertise in its audio interfaces. Our proprietary 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology & Jitter Management algorithm helps deliver the kind of artifact-free audio once accessible only to the most prestigious studios.
Mic Modeling Ready
The Zen Tour Synergy Core’s purpose-built preamps and Accusonic 3D modeling engine lets you transform the Antelope Audio Edge and Verge modeling microphones into expensive-sounding vintage replicas. Shape the final sound with complete control over proximity effect and change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and rare microphones as you monitor and record live, bringing out the musician’s finest performance.
Featuring pristine conversion, 4 Mic Preamps, and built in Synergy Core FX Processing, Antelope Audio Zen Tour Synergy Core delivers great recordings in your project studio, rehearsal space, or on the road! Call or Chat RSPE Audio for more information.
