Outstanding audio quality
The Antelope recipe for great-sounding audio
When it comes right down to it, all the flexibility in the world doesn't do you any good if audio quality is lacking; fortunately, Zen Studio's Acoustically Focused Clocking delivers the most analog-sounding audio conversion we've heard, with clean transients, stunning clarity, and detail that let you really hear the attack of instruments and vocals. Antelope's renowned clocking and conversion technology, together with the custom USB technology in the Zen Studio, are the same as in the acclaimed 32-channel Orion interface — a fixture in world-class studios and the playback rigs of top artists.

All the audio I/O is available simultaneously, for a total of 38 input and 32 output channels, plus 24 concurrent I/O channels via Zen Studio's 24-bit/192kHz custom USB.
