Fits the whole band
Portable – covering the needs of the whole band
Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. So producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry.
Unlike the solitude that writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. And a creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough.
UNBEATABLE AMOUNT OF I/O for a device of that size.
With Zen Tour we have pushed the envelope once again.
Antelope is offering not just a portable Thunderbolt™ & USB audio interface, but a pro piece, easily covering the needs of a small band.
Zen Tour comes with 4 switchable Mic/Line inputs and 4 more HiZ/Line ins.
Two reamp outs and a Talkback button on the front panel put it in the spotlight of portable interfaces.
FORGET ABOUT LATENCY
Custom FPGA will allow you to create and stream multiple complex mixes and process audio with zero latency.
Zen Tour borrows the powerful Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Antelope Audio’s top-selling pro studio devices.
This game-changing technology provides the interface with massive parallel processing capabilities, thus the lowest latency levels on the market.
Have tons of gear hooked in – Zen Tour has quite a few options
Some portable interfaces have to go for either a decent amount of I/O channels or high-end DSP effects.
Zen Tour gives you all:
4 switchable Mic/Line
4 HiZ/Line ins
8 analog outs
digital I/O on ADAT & S/PDIF
two independent headphone amps
two separate pairs of monitor outs.
Plus, the FPGA powered Thunderbolt™ & the custom USB make the Zen Tour lightning fast and compatible with any DAW.
TOUCH & CONTROL
Rediscover your studio workflow with the advanced Zen Tour control options
All of Zen Tour’s features are controllable via its high-resolution touch screen.
The portable audio interface can be also managed via the Antelope Audio’s Software Control Panel for OS X and Windows and via Android and iOS mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. So both the producer and the recording artists can control Zen Tour.
Thanks to our innovative networking control concept you can now access all Zen Tour features from multiple computers.
