Connecting seamlessly to any DAW, Orion 32+ | Gen 3 offers low-latency streaming of up to 64 simultaneous 24/192 audio channels via Thunderbolt(TM), and up to 32 channels over USB. Analog I/O is handled by 8x DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS monitoring outputs. Digital connectivity is ensured by 1x MADI, 2x ADAT, and 1x S/PDIF.

Orion 32+ | Gen 3 comes with a generous suite of real-time effects taken from the vast Antelope Audio FPGA FX library. You may purchase additional effects as you deem fit and invest in the AFX2DAW software bridge to use FPGA-processed, low-latency effects as inserts in your preferred DAW.

Orion 32+ | Gen 3 comes with six absolutely essential audio effects from the Antelope library, running in real-time on a fast FPGA platform. Good for multiple applications, each effect boasts remarkable precision and sound quality from Clear Q's linearity all the way to AuraVerb's advanced algorithms. These six tools alone can cover all your mixing and mastering needs.

Master De-Esser - The long-anticipated debut de-esser plugin from Antelope Audio is here. The Master De Esser will help you clean your audio from any unwanted sibilant consonants which might have occurred due to a variety of reasons among which over compression, improper mic'ing or individual voice specifics. Unlike similar plugins the Antelope Audio Master De Esser is extremely easy to use and effective against any artifacts. The unit control set is reduced to an absolute minimum, allowing you to pick the desired frequency, set a filtering type and adjust the Attack, Ratio, Knee and Release of the de-esser. The unit also allows you to switch between four modes of signal monitoring.
Power EX expander features a comprehensive set of controls, including Threshold, Range, Ratio, Attack and Decay knobs with additional Gain knob allowing you some extra control over the volume.
PowerGate, Antelope Audio's first noise gate tool, allows you to track audio from sources with unwanted background or ground noise.
PowerFFC - FeedForward Compressor comes with all the necessary controls Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, and Knee.
Clear Q integrated EQ offers 5 fully parametric bands - two of those can work in filter or shelving mode, while the three in the middle can cut or boost selected frequency ranges.
Aura Verb - a software-based reverb leveraging Antelope Audio's powerful 64-bit FPGA chip. Features eight different controls including: a "Colour" parameter to create everything between darkened textures to a brighter presence; and the "Richness" parameter that controls the reverb density compared with the source audio.

Flawless clocking is Antelope Audio's signature in the world of pro audio. And it's going strong, thanks to their next-generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology & jitter management algorithm. A pair of Word Clock outputs turns the Orion 32+ | Gen 3 into a premium Master Clock for your entire studio, while a 10MHz input enables connectivity to Antelope's legendary 10M & 10MX Atomic Clocks.

With its brand-new AD/DA converters achieving an outstanding 129dB dynamic range (measured at the Monitor Outputs), Orion 32+ | Gen 3 carries forth Antelope's reputation for pristine conversion quality. Hear the true sound of music with both digital clarity and analog warmth.

Orion 32+ | Gen 3 offers extensive flexibility for excellent productivity. A colour-coded software routing matrix with four separate mixers, effects chaining, and zero latency monitoring is provided. The routing matrix, mixers, and control panel are found within an intuitive desktop application for macOS and Windows.
