OVERVIEW

Console-grade discrete microphone preamp interface.

The Discreet 8 interface features 8 console-grade, fully-discrete microphone preamps, exceptional converters, clocking and monitoring and FPGA powered effects. Discrete 8 is a compact interface that is packed with robust connectivity options including 8 analog TRS/XLR inputs; 8 analog line outputs; a mastering grade stereo output; 2 headphone outputs; 2 guitar reamp outputs; 2 word clock I/O; and powerful digital I/O expansion options using S/PDIF and ADAT connectivity.

Unique to Antelope’s Discrete series is its microphone modeling and emulation capabilities. With the arrival of Antelope’s highly-anticipated Accusonic microphone modeling system, you’re able to record transparent audio through the Discreet 8 interface and emulate the sound of classic microphones and preamps digitally. This emulation can be done either while recording or after the tracking process, later in the mixing stages.

Discrete 8 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into a plethora of classic units in real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.

Discrete 8 includes drivers for Thunderbolt and USB for both Mac and PC; iOS and Android remote control apps; and the all-new easy panel software including easy monitor mixes, easy to use effects and streamlined routing.

The Basic FX Collection
Enter the world of authentic vintage gear modeling with the Basic FX pack that comes with Discrete 8. Explore the true sound of iconic and expensive units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, Lang and FET. The Basic FX pack allows you to use 2 instances of each EQ, compressor and AuraVerb; plus 1 instance of each guitar amp and cabinet models available. This Basic FX collection features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Antelope Audio also includes 7 new Edge mic emulations (Berlin M103, Berlin 49T, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Vienna 414, Sacramento 121R, Oxford 4038) and 5 new preamps (VPA76, Gyraf Gyratec G9, BAE 1073, RD-47, BA-31) in the latest firmware update.

Antelope Reel To Reel combines the best tape formulas, the best tape heads and the finest electronics. With it you can experiment with bias settings, tape hiss amounts, switch between four types of tape and adjust wow & flutter amounts. Mastering these parameters will allow you to achieve the warmth and color you crave in the desired amounts. Antelope Reel To Reel is an FPGA-powered effect, meaning it functions with no latency. The Antelope Audio tape machine will finally allow producers and recording artists to monitor the effect of our FPGA tape machine in real time, and not only during post-production.

The Bass SuperTube VR comes to your studio straight from the 1970s to bring back the edge in modern rock and heavy metal music. Bass SuperTube VR is freshly recreated in the FPGA domain and sounding as real and loud as it gets. The tone shaping controls are just like you remember them and will allow you to endlessly experiment to achieve and craft the perfect bass tone. Any rock'n'roll track needs a meaty and massive bass, and Bass SuperTube VR surely does provide exactly that.
