EXEMPLARY CLOCKING & CONVERSION
Antelope Audio is known over the world as the premier audio clocking experts. This legend lives on thanks to our next-generation 64- bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology & jitter management algorithm. A pair of Word Clock outputs turn the Orion32+ | Gen 3 into a world-class Master Clock for your entire studio, while a 10MHz input allows for use with the best possible stability using Antelope’s legendary 10M & 10MX Atomic Clocks.
With it’s brand-new AD/DA converters achieving up to 129dB dynamic range (Monitor Outs), Orion32+ | Gen 3 continues our reputation for pristine conversion quality. Hear the true sound of your music with both digital clarity and analog warmth.
SUB-MILLISECOND ROUNDTRIP LATENCY. A FACT.
Orion32+ | Gen3 delivers true sub-millisecond round-trip latency for both AD and DA conversion. We proudly present the following stellar measurements, using our proprietary Windows Thunderbolt™ driver ver. 18.104.22.168 tested using the Oblique Audio RTL Utility.
Stable playback & recording were achieved at these measured settings, in PreSonus Studio One 4, on an Intel Core i7-8700K CPU. But, let the figures speak for themselves.
* Considering AD/DA conversion’s inherent latency and the technical state-of-the-art in the pro audio industry, it is currently impossible to achieve sub-millisecond latency under each and every recording & playback scenario. Fortunately, the latency achieved in the measurements provided is low enough to be practically imperceptible.
** To achieve stable playback on macOS we used bigger buffers (e.g. 96 samples at 192kHz), resulting in slightly higher latency – around 0.5ms more than on Windows at 192kHz.
