Antelope Audio is a manufacturer of audio signal processing hardware. The company was founded in 2005 by Igor Levin. Antelope Audio is best known for adopting atomic clock generators in audio master clocks.
The company designs and markets audio interfaces, modeling microphones, mastering converters, master clocks and analog processors for professional and home studios. Apart from manufacturing hardware devices, Antelope Audio develops software audio effects on the Field-programmable gate array|FPGA and Digital signal processing|DSP-based processing platform Synergy Core.
The company CEO Igor Levin entered the audio industry with his first company, Aardvark in 1990. Originally founded with the idea to market Analog-to-digital converter and Digital-to-analog converter, the company specialized in designing and manufacturing master clocks that applied Direct digital synthesis method. For its achievements in engineering, the company’s Aardsync II device received a TEC Award nomination in 1997.
During the first four years of the company, the Isochrone line of master clocks was the primary focus. The company’s first analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converter, the Eclipse 384, was first introduced during the AES summit in New York in 2011. In 2013, the Antelope Audio’s Orion 32 became the first audio interface to fit 32 channels of analog audio in one rack unit.
In 2015, the company released their first software audio effects based on FPGA modeling of vintage outboard processors. The software became available to all owners of their Orion Studio device. All audio interfaces manufactured by the company from that point on were released to the market with included effects. In 2016, the Zen Tour became Antelope Audio’s first desktop-sized audio interface. In 2017, the Orion32 HD became the company’s first HDX audio interface. Later that year, Antelope Audio began making modeling microphones which featured software emulations of vintage microphones.
In 2019, the Synergy Core product line of audio interfaces was introduced with the release of the Discrete 4 Synergy Core. The Synergy Core technology based on FPGA and DSP processing chips allowed the company to expand their library of software effects with new compressors, equalizers, microphone preamps, guitar amps and cabs.
