64 SIMULTANEOUS HI-RES AUDIO CHANNELS VIA THUNDERBOLT
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.

HEAR THE PAST. EXPECT THE FUTURE. IN REAL TIME
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.

FEATURED FX
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.

EXEMPLARY CLOCKING & CONVERSION
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.

The Orion 32 + Gen 3 delivers pristine high quaility A/D conversion with an array of routing possibilities that allows the user to monitor, record, use Antelope FX and mix using the DAW of your preference. There can be a learning curve involved with the routing control panel aspect for those who aren't used to having those options on hand. That said, I'm enjoying the interface very much.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, woodwind pads, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year. Pricing for used electronic products is 4% of the original new selling price.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: $40 flat rate up to $2,000 of current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years.
  • BRASS and STRINGS: 2% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
  • WOODWINDS: 4% of the current new selling price above $2,000.
