The Discrete 4 Pro Synergy Core is designed for stellar recordings at home and in the studio. It features industry-leading sound quality made possible by our latest generation AD/DA converters and transparent preamps. This desktop-format audio interface embodies our zero-compromise approach to hardware and the intuitive software control panel helps you streamline your sessions.
The Discrete 4 Pro allows connection between any signal source and any destination for turning any session scenario into reality. Yes, seriously: every analog or digital output, effect strip or DAW track can receive any of the analog or digital inputs, effect returns, computer source channels or the four stereo mixes. All this flexibility is easily accessible via a drop-down menu on every channel or from the virtual patchbay screen – the choice is yours.
The Discrete 4 Pro packs rich connectivity in a small package. This can make it your go-to for a wide variety of applications both in a home studio, and in a larger facility – voice overs, small band recordings, multi-synth setups and more. And with both USB and Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity, the interface achieves cutting-edge performance and easy integration with any setup.
What is expansive connectivity if you don’t rock the best sound? The Discrete 4 Pro boasts industry-leading AD/DA converters, offering up to 130dB of dynamic range. The new converters are backed up by our 64-bit AFC™ clocking technology – for even better transients, crystal-clear highs, and a stereo image with incomparable depth and detail.
Designed with a unique 6-transistor topology, our Discrete preamps are now synonymous with precise sound capture for most transparent recordings. This design is a product of an extensive study of the greatest console preamps in history and is a main in the Antelope Audio sound. The four Discrete preamps work wonders for any microphoneand perfectly complement the Edge line of modeling microphones and their frequency response.
Synergy Core transforms the Discrete 4 Pro into a studio with racks full of vintage effects, adding some distinctive flavor to your sound, in real-time. Running on a hybrid system of one FPGA and two DSP chips, you can monitor, record and mix using an ever-expanding library of low-latency processors, without strain on your computer.
Taking advantage of high-speed Thunderbolt™, the afx2daw plug-in lets you use Synergy Core effects inside most popular DAWs, providing native workflow while keeping all the processing inside the interface. afx2daw is coming to Discrete 4 Pro Synergy Core soon, for macOS and Windows.
These 32 channel input mixers allow direct ultra-low latency monitoring of any signal source. Adjust levels and panning, input the 16 effects processing channels and create mixes for any of the interface’s outputs, or even use them for loopback during streaming.
The four independent headphone outputs allow you to send different mixes to every band member you are recording. This provides flexibility in every session and is a guarantee to make the artist happy.
Don’t want to lose your progress? For every individual recording scenario, you can easily save session files and create exact snapshots of all your settings.
