Could've been great
stej, 09.03.2021
Handling: 2/5
1 volume control for 3 different outs is about as practical as you'd expect.

Features: 4/5
Ticks a lot of boxes, but really buggy software. If they fix it eventually it could be great.

Sound: 2/5
Line out sound quality is good, but ground loop noise is passed to the monitors. You can hear your mouse moving when connected to a pc. Headphone outs are underpowered and low quality.

Quality: 3/5
Solid construction, looks pretty. High quality usb cable included is a nice touch as well. But with all the other problems I mention, I can't give it more than 3 stars. Not filtering ground noise is ridiculous.

Overall: 2/5

This is advertised as a 4x8 interface, yet there's only 6 discretely routable outs. 8 of the 16 available asio out channels are not mapped to anything and can't be utilized in any way, indicating they probably cut an ADAT out at the last minute.

The advertised 65dB mic gain turned out to be around 46dB. I hope this was down to receiving a bad unit.

Software controls are clunky. The mixer needs around 30sec to load, sometimes more, on a top of the line computer. Many features are buggy and work only partially or not at all. FX randomly stop working without any indication. The internal server running the fx engine crashes often, launcher loses access to the interface, restarts required, it's all very unstable.

The interface I received was nowhere near ready for launch. Could've been great if they worked on it a little longer. As it stands, I can't recommend it to anyone.

Amazing Product for the price
Aman1994, 08.04.2021
Best device I ever had for my home studio.

Pro's:

- Studio quality Pre-amps
Even a weak piezo pickup will sound big.

- Both Headphone outputs are top-notch (even at lower volume level)
Individual control is a bonus at this price.

- Synergy Core is very easy to learn and they are constantly improving it.

- Extra plugins are way cheaper as compared to UAD.

- Aura reVerb quality is superb

- Compatible with Apple M1 chips (software and hardware).

- Led Screen is a good add-on.

Con's:
- Default Plugins are good but very limited.

- Can't use plugins in DAW directly.

Simply fantastic, professional converters, quality preamps and easy to use software. The only flaw is not being able to use plugins directly in the daw ... but we already knew. Thanks Thomann.

Antelope Zen Go Synergy Core - bought 1 week ago
Balkana, 29.03.2021
The interface was bought with intent to use in home studio, for recording and mixing, and I think it fits well the purpose.

Handling: Overall nice appearance; would love to have its own case or bag to keep the device safe when moving between various locations.
Features: Seems quite enough for many tasks; Main insufficiency seems to be the unavailability of the AFX2DAW functionality. The control is a bit heavy using the dedicated control panel, but it is maybe I just need to get more familiar with it.
Sound: Sounds pretty normal. Comparing to other interfaces I cannot see noticeable difference.
Quality: Both the device and cable seems to be very good quality.

Overall - I like it. Hope to see additional features added by Antelope Audio in the near future.

I received it with broken factory seals, and sealed again by Thomann. Obviously opened by somebody before, but no visible traces of use. Anyway, I expected to receive a unit in factory condition, as I did not order B-Stock.
