8 DISCRETE MIC PREAMPS Console-grade Class A mic pres with discrete transistor design and precise digital gain controls.

MIC PREAMP MODELING Turn the expensive sounding Discrete 8 mic pres into classic units via Tube, Transformer and FET based circuitry in real-time

REAL-TIME FPGA FX Premier real-time FX including BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio and Lang classics to use in the Easy Panel or in a DAW

ROCK-SOLID CLOCKING Discrete 8 features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology

EXPERT MONITORING Create up to 4 custom monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included and send them to Headphone or Monitor outs; Talkback feature also included

REMOTE CONTROL Control all Discrete 8 features via its intuitive Easy Panel or download the free iOS and Android mobile apps

Console-grade and fully Discrete Preamps offer world-class sound.

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 real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the new AFX2DAW Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 8 ReAmp outputs will allow you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Proprietary clocking & secret jitter management technologies

Discrete 8 is designed as a professional clocking solution in its own right. It features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from highly acclaimed clock units like Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock and Pure2. Discrete 8 comes with a Word Clock (WC) Input that can de-jitter and distribute an external clock signal. Three WC outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF. Discrete 8 will make sure all your gear is perfectly synced.

Maintain multiple mixes and exchange presets

Monitoring and Talkback sections in Discrete 8 are easy to set. Up to 4 individual monitoring mixes can be sent to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without FPGA FX. Custom headphone mixes might be tailored for each performer. Vintage EQ, Compression and guitar amps allow the artists to hear a sound as close to the final product as possible.

Discrete 8 can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with the entire Antelope line of FPGA equipped pro audio interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other Antelope users or see how the pros are setting up their sessions.
