Antelope Audio Announces Shipment of its Portable Audio Interface with 12 Studio Grade Mic Pres and 20 Analog Inputs

Zen Studio Brings Unprecedented Functionality and Quality in a Portable Design, Enabling Musicians, Engineers and Sound Designers to Capture Pristine Audio While ‘On the Go’

June 26, 2014 · Santa Monica, Calif. – Leading professional audio gear manufacturer Antelope Audio announced that its widely anticipated Zen Studio multi-channel recording interface is now shipping. Priced at $2,495, Zen Studio is a multi-faceted, portable audio interface with best-in-class analog and digital connectivity. Measuring just 16.8” / 418 mm wide and constructed in an attractive and durable housing, the Zen Studio delivers ‘world class’ capabilities to audio professionals who want to capture outstanding, studio-quality recordings in any location.

A fully featured recording interface complete with Antelope’s industry standard clocking technology and a built-in monitoring section, Zen Studio consists of 12 studio grade mic pres, on-board DSP effects and the company’s proprietary low-latency USB connectivity — all in a package that can easily fit inside a backpack. Zen Studio is perfectly suited for traveling musicians, location sound engineers, field recordists and producers seeking the ultimate in portability and sound quality.

Supreme sound

While the Zen is diminutive in size, it delivers stunning audio quality with 12 studio grade microphone preamplifiers, Antelope Audio’s Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management algorithm and A/D & D/A conversion technology. This combination makes it the most authentic analog-sounding interface on the market. The unit’s custom USB and conversion technologies are identical to that of the top-selling 32-channel Orion32 interface, which is a centerpiece in the playback rigs for artists such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake, and integral to the mixing and mastering studios of engineers like Eric Sarafin (aka Mixerman), Brian Vibberts, Howie Weinberg or electronic music producers like Robert Babicz and Dusty Kid.

Power and flexibility

In addition to world class, studio-grade audio quality, Zen Studio offers an extremely powerful DSP, based on a custom FPGA device with massive parallel processing capabilities. This allows fast and easy simultaneous processing of multiple effects, enhancing the workflow like no other device on the market.

Unrivaled versatility

All audio I/O is available simultaneously for a total of 38 possible input and 14 outputs (including headphone outs), plus 24 simultaneous I/O channels via custom USB, supporting 24-bit, 192 kHz audio. Users can create up to four independent zero-latency mixes assignable to any outputs, including the two independent headphone outputs and monitor outputs. The unit is fully controllable using an intuitive desktop application on both PC and Mac, offering flexible signal routing and DSP-based effects along with custom presets.

Zen Studio delivers unparalleled quality and portability for the modern recordists. Its feature set makes it flexible for almost any recording and playback application, and its size makes it suitable for just about any location. For more information, please visit the Antelope Audio site at
