Zen Go Synergy Core is our first ever bus-powered desktop interface packed with tech featured only in high-end professional studios, giving you instant access to premium sound quality even at home. Its vast library of Synergy Core analog-modeled effects lets you shape your sound with precision and character – all while monitoring directly with imperceptible latency.

HIGH-RESOLUTION AUDIO Professional Studio Sound at Your Fingertips

Whether you have access to a high-end studio or are working from home, the Zen Go Synergy Core shrinks the sound-quality gap between artists, engineers, and producers. The core technologies that landed our premium devices in some of the most respected recording studios are now in a much smaller format.

Class-Leading AD/DA conversion

The converters offer up to 127dB of headroom and provide extended detail in the low-end, and sonic bliss found only in the most sophisticated studios.

Discrete console-grade preamps

The ultra-linear console-grade transistor topology allows for recording with the highest fidelity and resolution, whilst sounding warm and musical on every source.

64-bit AFC™ technology

The 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking™ technology is taken straight from our master clocks that have scored Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and power some of the most prestigious studios around the globe.

SYNERGY CORE COLLECTION Record with the sound of legends

We carefully picked a fine selection of 37 of the most useful and sought-after effects and included them with every Zen Go Synergy Core. This free library of analog-modeled compressors, EQs, mic preamps, guitar amps & cabs, along with our signature AuraVerb, gives you all the tools you’ll need to create stunning, sonically rich productions without spending any extra money. Beyond the 37 free effects, the ever-expanding Synergy Core library offers over 50 more as optional expansions – including emulations of classics such as Grove Hill’s Liverpool and Gyratec’s legendary EQs, as well as third-party effects such as Antares’ Auto-Tune and Inertia’s Instinct. Want to apply the Synergy Core processing while working in your DAW? Watch our dedicated tutorial video to learn how to load the real-time effects as hardware inserts.


Connectivity is key, that is why you only need a USB cable and a computer to start the show. The multipurpose inputs and the digital ports allow you to change things on the fly and expand your setup easily.

User-friendly controls

Prepare for a session quick and easy with the software Control Panel. Set up your routing from a simple drop-down menu and customize your monitoring mixes with adjustable volume, pan, and reverb.

Switchable inputs

The two combo XLR jacks give you the flexibility to choose between our Discrete console-grade mic preamps, line level and Hi-Z instrument inputs which are easily switchable from the front panel.

Loopback function for streaming

Send your monitoring mixes containing any signal source from the audio interface’s inputs and OS/DAW playback, back into your computer’s virtual inputs for easy setup of online broadcasting.

Session recall

For every individual recording scenario, you can save session files and create exact snapshots of all your settings so you can load them later without losing your progress.

FLEXIBILITY AND SIMPLICITY Your studio is everywhere

Compact, but powerful, Zen Go Synergy Core fits perfectly on any home studio desk, whether used for recording, mixing, or streaming. The extended outputs allow it to simultaneously connect its playback to different systems whilst drawing power from your laptop or any standard phone charging port. The portable design also means you can easily carry it on tours and on-location recording sessions, without sacrificing speed and efficiency.
