Connect Orion32+ to any DAW on the market. Orion32+ provides seamless connectivity to any DAW, allowing for low latency simultaneous I/O streaming of 64 channels of 24-bit, 192 kHz audio signal via Thunderbolt and 32 channels via USB. The analog I/O are handled by 8 DB25 connectors and a pair of TRS connectors for monitoring. Orion32+ is a successor to the world's first 32-channel AD/DA, now offering a greater variety of interfaces such as Thunderbolt, MADI and USB. The digital connectivity options are complimented also by ADAT and S/PDIF.

Enhanced routing, mixing and monitoring. Orion32+ offers stunning flexibility and great productivity, providing a colour-coded routing matrix with four separate mixers, built-in DSP effects and zero latency monitoring. The entire control is gathered in a desktop application available for both OS X and Windows.

The control panel is based on the software created initially for Orion32 and further developed for another Antelope Audio leading product, Zen Studio. Orion32+'s control panel is an extremely intuitive user-friendly interface, which incorporates both Antelope Audio's know-how and customers' feedback.

Digital clarity meets analog detail in Antelope Audios signature sound. The proven clocking accuracy is supported by Antelope's renowned 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) jitter management technology, the same as with the flagship Trinity Master Clock. The clean, transparent and detailed conversion in Orion32+ is the same as with its predecessor, which has proved its sound quality in a great number of studios and live shows across the Globe.

The 10 MHz input, enabling connectivity to Antelope's legendary 10M Atomic Clock and its successor 10MX, makes Orion32+ crystal oscillator remarkably precise, emphasizing the signature Antelope sound. The two word clock outputs make Orion32+ a great fit in any setup, not only as an interface, but a master clock as well.

Enhanced Orion32+ desktop application for even smoother studio workflow. Control all Orion32+ features and functions from its freshly redesigned desktop app. OS X and Windows compatible, the control panel follows Antelope Audio's networking control concept, meaning you can now access the interface from multiple computers in the same network. The Orion32+'s software panel allows users to detach all its sections into freely movable and re-sizable panels for more convenient session arrangements, especially important for engineers and artists with multiple screen setups.
