Antelope Audio to Demonstrate Zen Studio, Satori Monitor Controller, Pure2 Mastering Converter, MP32 Preamplifier During 2015 NAMM Show

During the 2015 NAMM Show this week, leading digital audio manufacturer Antelope Audio [Hall A - Booth 6274] will demonstrate the detail, purity and flexibility of the newest products in its lineup of professional audio products: the Pure2 mastering converter, the MP32 microphone preamplifier, the Satori monitoring controller, and of course the Zen Studio — which has received industry accolades and a TEC Award nomination during 2014.

The new products, which are all shipping as of this month, bring unprecedented detail, depth, clarity and transparency to professional users' audio signal chain, while extending usability with an array of product features and multiple I/Os. Antelope Audio will also showcase new accessories for Zen Studio including its new Z-rack mounting system and a Zen Studio embroidered protective carrying case, an elegant solution designed for ease of use and portability.

Zen Studio: A Fully Featured Recording System 'To Go'
Zen Studio, which is nominated for the 30th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the 'Computer Audio Hardware" category, is a full-featured audio interface, clock, preamp, and monitor controller in an ergonomic and robust road-ready chassis.

Featuring 20 analog inputs, 12 world-class mic preamps, Antelope's acclaimed conversion and clocking, onboard DSP effects, multiple monitor mixers, custom high-bandwidth low-latency USB, and Mac/PC control software, Zen Studio is a powerful core to any professional mobile recording studio.

Pure2, Satori and MP32: The Enlightened Audio Chain
The combination of the Pure2 mastering converter, the Satori monitor controller and the MP32 preamplifier, which will each be demonstrated at the Antelope booth, brings a new level of detail and purity to any signal chain.

Pure2 is a mastering-grade 24/192 kHz AD/DA 2-channel converter and master clock, enabling users to realize unsurpassed digital clarity and analog realism, while offering a flexible set of connectivity options and extremely efficient and ergonomic software remote control. With best-in-class Burr-Brown converters and the same Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology present in Antelope's ultra high-end Trinity master clock, Pure2 helps musicians and engineers achieve new levels of mastering excellence.

MP32, a 32-channel, console-grade microphone preamplifier with integrated software control, is designed to compliment Antelope's Orion32 and provide the greatest possible transparency during the recording process. Occupying just 3U rack spaces make the MP32 the ultimate solution for both studios and live recording — where rack space can be a precious commodity.

Satori, meanwhile, is a true analog monitoring and summing system designed to deliver an 'epiphany' experience to the sound engineer. Antelope's renowned relay-controlled stepped attenuator, the extremely versatile connectivity options and great selection of stereo effects and comprehensive monitoring options, place the Satori among the most advanced monitoring controllers in the world, and make it equally suited to both commercial and project studios.

I'm hoping and crossing finger that Antelope will bring new DSP plugins for the Zen Studio Soundcard especially the Reverb that they said was supposed to be released a month or so after Zen was out (if I remember correctly in the Zen Thread). Really crossing my fingers ;-)

Where is it? What is the hold up? I feel like my life is on hold right now. I've been waiting forever. I have a new SSL 500 G Comp with high pass filter that I am dying to hear through the Pure2. Trying to decide between 2 Electrodyne 511's or a Bettermaker 502. The transparency of the Pure2 will be the deciding factor in my decision. I really don't want to have to grab a Lynx Hilo. I personally didn't have good luck with the last antelope unit I bought (Orion 32) granted it was a demo deal, but hearing it at a friends studio it sounds amazing and I can only imagine how good the Pure 2 sounds.

Are the throughs on the Satori so that you can still access the outputs of your DA even when they are hardwired to the satori's summing inputs?

When is the MP32 finally releasing? And I heard that there would be a rebate/discount for existing Orion32 owners; is this true?

Also do we know if the software for the Mic Pre's will be MIDI controllable? In a live situation, my only worry is not having the physical control to quickly trim a hot channel if needed. Other than that Im looking forward to replacing my 4 Octopre racks
