Antelope Zen Tour Synergy Core

Thunderbolt & USB Portable Audio Interface integrated hardware-based FPGA and DSP effects

What’s New

Our professional desktop audio interface grows even more powerful. Without getting much bigger. Zen Tour Synergy Core brings the following upgrades from the original Zen Tour:

  • 4x DSP + 2x FPGA Synergy Core low-latency effects and audio engine processors
  • Improved AD/DA conversion – up to 130dB DNR, on par with Orion Studio Synergy Core
  • 2x increase in channel count (32 channels at sample rates up to 192kHz)
  • Thunderbolt™ 3 & USB 2.0 cross-platform connectivity for Mac / Windows
  • Support for new Synergy Core-exclusive effects like Auto-Tune Synergy, Opto-2A, MES-432C, Comp-4K-Bus and others
  • 8 DC-coupled line outputs for CV applications like controlling modular synthesizers
  • Discrete ultra – linear microphone preamps

Antelope Audio Synergy Core interfaces employ ARM DSP + FPGA chips in custom configurations to process tens of input/output audio streams and hundreds of low-latency studio effects without burdening your computer. With 4x DSP + 2x FPGA processors, Zen Tour Synergy Core achieves a new standard for real-time audio effects in its category.

Lead benefits

  • Offload the bulk of your signal processing to the audio interface with hundreds of FX instances (at sample rates up to 192kHz)
  • Record, monitor, mix and master without perceived latency
  • Free up CPU for large sessions and resource-intensive virtual instruments
  • Explore a growing library of vintage gear emulations and creative effects
  • Avoid latency stacking in complex effects chains
  • Improve system stability by lightening CPU load and optimising audio I/O

36 Synergy Core FX Included

Zen Tour Synergy Core comes with 36 Synergy Core FX included:

  • 2 Preamps
  • 4 Equalizers
  • 5 Compressors
  • 22 Guitar Amps & Cabs
  • 2 Utility FX • 1 Reverb

Giving your projects a flying start, Zen Tour Synergy Core includes a compelling library of 36 meticulously modeled real-time studio effects. It’s all happening inside your audio interface with the lowest possible latency – thanks to FPGA’s massive parallel computing capabilities, DSP processing, and fast Thunderbolt™ connectivity. The included library can be expanded to include any effects you choose from our web store.

Auto-Tune Synergy

Built from the ground-up for the Synergy Core platform, Auto-Tune Synergy adds live pitch correction to the Antelope Audio experience.

  • Industry-leading pitch correction anytime you need it – live, during recording, and at mixdown
  • Fully adjustable Retune Speed, Flex-Tune, and Humanize parameters with Auto-Key automatic key and scale detection
  • Real-time, low latency performance with the Edge Go modeling microphone and any Antelope Audio Synergy Core interface
  • ‘Classic’ mode pays homage to the legendary “Auto-Tune 5 sound” heard on countless hit records

Make Connections

Small footprint, big connectivity! Zen Tour Synergy Core offers a choice of 4 Instrument/Line inputs, 4 Mic/Line Ins, 8 Line Outs, 2 Monitor Outs, 2 Headphone Outs and 2 Re-Amp Outs, totalling 8 analog inputs and 14 outputs. The unit is digitally expandable over ADAT & SPDIF for an additional 10 digital input and 10 output channels. Additionally, all line outputs are DC-Coupled and ready for control voltage (CV) applications such as control of modular synthesizers. As a final touch, an integrated Talkback microphone lets you demo vocals and propel your voice to the live room.

4 Discrete Microphone Preamps

A proprietary design that honors the best of audio engineering practices, our fully discrete, ultra-linear microphone preamps have sound quality comparable to that of a great mixing desk. Musical and transparent, they perfectly complement the Antelope Audio Edge & Verge modeling microphones’ sonic characteristics to deliver the power of our Accusonic 3D mic modeling technology right on your desktop.

Industry-leading Clocking

The pioneer of atomic clocking in pro audio, Antelope Audio incorporates 20+ years of expertise in its audio interfaces. Our proprietary 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking technology & Jitter Management algorithm helps deliver the kind of artifact-free audio once accessible only to the most prestigious studios.

  • Increased width, separation, and detail in musical performances
  • Signature Antelope clocking

Full Speed Ahead

Record and monitor with maxed-out effects chains at high sample rates and low buffer sizes without taxing your CPU! You can enjoy Latency-Free Direct Monitoring over 4 independent internal mixers with 32 assignable inputs and stereo outputs.

Center Command

Zen Tour Synergy Core has modern touchscreen controls giving immediate access to metering, level controls, presets and settings. The intuitive interface and precise tactile control facilitate fast, efficient work at all times, without staring at a monitor.

Pack Light

Zen Tour Synergy Core is our desktop-sized answer to professional rackmount equipment. With it, all you need to make great recordings in your project studio, rehearsal space, or on the road is power, a decent laptop, and reliable headphones. The Synergy Core architecture lets you run processing-heavy projects without carrying external equipment like DSP accelerators, FX processors, and authorization dongles.

Route Any Audio

Built inside the software Control Panel, a comprehensive Routing Matrix houses a full-fledged digital patch bay to freely route audio between the interface’s analog and digital inputs and outputs. Run DAW playback through Synergy Core FX, re-amp guitar DIs through the Shred Guitar Amps & Cabs, and integrate external equipment. With all ‘training wheels’ removed, your workflow can be as esoteric as you want it to be.

  • IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO ANY PARAMETER
  • COLOR-CODED ROUTING MATRIX WITH USER LABELS AND UNDO/REDO
  • FOUR 32-CHANNEL, LOW-LATENCY SOFTWARE MIXERS
  • SAVE AND LOAD CUSTOM PRESETS
  • SINGLE-WINDOW WORKFLOW

True Cross-Platform

This time, it’s not the manufacturer who’s making decisions – you are. Whether your weapon of choice is PC or Mac, Zen Tour Synergy Core carries both Thunderbolt 3 (Type-C) and USB 2.0 (Type-B) ports for cross-platform compatibility with Mac and Windows machines.

Depend On It

Hand-assembled in Europe from high quality materials (steel and anodized aluminum), Zen Tour Synergy Core withstands the demands of your studio desktop, road rig and practice space. Furthermore, our rock-solid drivers and 20-hour customer support (phone, chat, ticket system) will ensure you get consistent, smooth performance out of the interface in all conditions.

Hear The Truth

With updated converters and Antelope’s signature 4th-generation clocking, Zen Tour Synergy Core offers pristine AD/DA conversion for artifact-free recording and critical listening with a best-in-class dynamic range of up to 130dB (measured at the monitor outputs). The sound quality rivals that of professional rackmount studio interfaces, which occupy additional space and may cost times as much.

Mic Modeling Ready

The Zen Tour Synergy Core’s purpose-built preamps and Accusonic 3D modeling engine lets you transform the Antelope Audio Edge and Verge modeling microphones into expensive-sounding vintage replicas. Shape the final sound with complete control over proximity effect and change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and rare microphones as you monitor and record live, bringing out the musician’s finest performance.
