Amazing products
Deesak, 02.06.2020
I switched from AVID HD I/O to Antelope Orion Studio Synergy Core.

AVID HD I/O is also a very good product, but I was surprised by the audio interface of Antelope Orion Studio Synergy Core.
It is an excellent product in terms of both quality and cost performance.

You can select the input method for microphone, line and direct input. Direct In is an input method for direct A/D conversion, I thought it would be very good to capture analog summing sound and hardware effects by direct In.

With the advent of DAW, you have more things to do, such as composing, recording, mixing, and mastering, and it answers all those needs. You won't need to replace it for at least 5 years from now.

Also worth noting is that it comes with FPGA FX. To be honest, I didn't expect much compared to waves and UAD.
But I soon realized that it was a big mistake. The quality of FPGA FX is very high, and I mainly used FPGA FX now.

Note that FPGA FX differs from ordinary plug-ins in that effects are processed in hardware, which requires cumbersome routing to make the effects work on the DAW. However, if you purchase the AFX2DAW plugin provided by Antelope separately, you will be able to use FPGA FX easily on the DAW without troublesome routing, so you should purchase the AFX2DAW.
However, since FPGA FX is only processed in hardware,offline bounce is not supported. This is a little inconvenient because it requires real-time export.

It seems that there will be more FPGA FX from third parties in the future, so I'm looking forward to it.

Great sound! really top notch audio quality from antelope. Amazing dynamics from the audio outputs!
At start I had a little bit of trouble with the drivers (windows user here), but after installing the latest version of the drivers, it's been running smooth.
The internal routing in this thing massive. Which means it has a routing matrix that's more complex than the average audio interface. But it gives you many more options for integrating onboard AFX (dsp effects), mic emulations, and outboard gear, and routing these however you want.
One major plus for me, as a PC user, it is USB and thunderbolt compatible!

Brilliant sound
Thomas O. 713, 01.02.2021
Great audio interface , easy enough to get use to, hardware plugs on edge duo and the rest are very good, latency is non existent, very good on usb and thunderbolt , very stable , very flexible compared to the competition, you can even bypass the preamp stage if you want and go straight to the converter. What more could a guitar ask for . Sound is pristine and quiet and you can color to your hearts content with all the eq's and preamps etc. and at the same time have a straight thru raw sound on another channel. I'm on win 10 pro , gigabyte z490vision d board.

Great audio interface!
Venca, 08.02.2021
I bought this beauty for my home recording studio. It was a great choise. I use it with R.M.E Octamic 2 via ADAT. Routing, FPGA effects, reamp, 2 stereo headphones outputs with separate settings and adding reverb for better feel if you want.
This interface have all you need :)
