Externally, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is immediately distinguishable from its popular predecessor, courtesy of an eye-catching carbon grey-coloured faceplate. But behind the mask internal innovations abound as it continues its predecessor’s penchant for extensive connectivity and best-in-class performance, including 12 superb-sounding, adaptable Accusonic preamps (comfortably accommodating complex multi-microphone setups) and 16 analogue outputs (providing an abundance of signal distribution capacity for outboard gear integration or summing). Dual mastering-grade monitor outputs maintain signal integrity all the way to the monitoring stage (also allowing switching between two pairs of speakers), while those all-new A/D conversion chips translate to capturing every sonic nuance of a performance as faithfully as possible. Pooled with Antelope Audio’s acclaimed 64-bit ATC (Acoustically Focused Clocking) jitter-management technology, Orion Studio Rev. 2017 is poised to implement industry-leading fidelity in almost any application.

Controlled via a desktop application for Mac or PC, Antelope Audio’s advanced session preset and routing software serves up complete control of signal flow, permitting powerful effects chains, faithful monitor mixes, and easy integration of outboard hardware. Helpfully, the new Matrix View available to Orion Studio Rev. 2017 (and all of Antelope Audio’s Thunderbolt HDX-compatible audio interfaces) offers an accurate and alluring alternative to the company’s classic drag-and-drop interface alongside a new Session Presets application for full session saving functionality, allowing anyone already taking full advantage of their incredibly versatile routing, mixing, and hardware effects modelling capabilities to save, load, and share any routing, mixing, effects, mic pre gain levels, input and output trims, and even pan or resize settings.
