Antelope Audio Zen Q Synergy Core

Portable and yet potent enough to power your home studio sessions, Antelope Audio's Zen Q Synergy Core is a Thunderbolt 3 audio interface that brings professional audio quality to the table and offers you room to grow. This compact interface supports 14 x 10 audio channels, while housing Antelope's highly regarded converter technology, precision 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC), and Synergy Core DSP platform.

Physically speaking, the Zen Q offers plenty of capability on its own. Loaded with two of Antelope Audio's Discrete microphone preamps, their internal circuity provides the character of authentic recording consoles, and when you add in the Synergy Core functionality, a wealth of recording and processing capabilities await. There are also two additional TRS inputs on the front for instrument or line level sources, while a set of DC-coupled line outputs alongside the main monitor outs offers the potential for everything from additional monitoring paths, external send and return processing, or even voltage control of analog gear through the use of a platform like Bitwig, Max/MSP or Ableton's CV Tools. Need even more? Zen Q also offers S/PDIF in and out, as well as up to eight additional input channels over optical ADAT

One of the defining features of the Zen Q is its integration of Antelope Audio's Synergy Core technology, offering the ability to host plugins and signal processing tools within the interface itself, allowing your computer to remain focused on more critical tasks. Antelope Audio kindly bundles 37 different effects with the Zen Q to get you started, providing everything from compressors to guitar amps and even reverbs, with more available for purchase directly from Antelope. Combining this with the inherent speed of Thunderbolt 3, the Zen Q fits into any studio as a tiny powerhouse recording solution. Whether you're consistently on the go and need studio-quality at any point in your travels, or you're looking for a dependable yet expandable interface to hinge a home studio upon, the Zen Q Syntergy Core from Antelope Audio is up to any recording task.
