Discrete 8
Console-grade discrete microphone preamp interface

ALL-STAR TECHNOLOGY & PERFORMANCE
Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 8 features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.
The Antelope AFX platform is a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which are now accessible in the DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Discrete 8's features:

8 DISCRETE MIC PREAMPS
Console-grade Class A mic pres with discrete transistor design and precise digital gain controls.

MIC PREAMP MODELING
Turn the expensive sounding Discrete 8 mic pres into classic units via Tube, Transformer and FET based circuitry in real-time

REAL-TIME FPGA FX
Premier real-time FX including BAE, Grove Hill, Gyraf Audio and Lang classics to use in the Easy Panel or in a DAW

ROCK-SOLID CLOCKING
Discrete 8 features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology

EXPERT MONITORING
Create up to 4 custom monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included and send them to Headphone or Monitor outs; Talkback feature also included

REMOTE CONTROL
Control all Discrete 8 features via its intuitive Easy Panel or download the free iOS and Android mobile apps

CUSTOMIZABLE SONIC EXCELLENCE
Console-grade and fully Discrete Preamps
offer world-class sound.
Discrete 8 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into a plethora of classic units real-time. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing.

Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 8 ReAmp outputs will allow you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Giving you complete control
Transform Edge & Verge
into vintage replicas
Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

ANTELOPE-STYLE CLOCKING
Proprietary clocking
& secret jitter management technologies
Discrete 8 is designed as a professional clocking solution in its own right. It features Antelope’s 4th Generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from highly acclaimed clock units like Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock and Pure2. Discrete 8 comes with a Word Clock (WC) Input that can de-jitter and distribute an external clock signal. Three WC outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF. Discrete 8 will make sure all your gear is perfectly synced.

EXPERT LEVEL MONITORING
Maintain multiple mixes and exchange presets
Monitoring and Talkback sections in Discrete 8 are easy to set. Up to 4 individual monitoring mixes can be sent to Headphones or Monitor Outputs with or without FPGA FX. Custom headphone mixes might be tailored for each performer. Vintage EQ, Compression and guitar amps allow the artists to hear a sound as close to the final product as possible.
Discrete 8 can save and load AFX presets and exchange settings with the entire Antelope line of FPGA equipped pro audio interfaces. Share your own FX settings with other Antelope users or see how the pros are setting up their sessions.

ADVANCED REMOTE CONTROL
Control Discrete 8 with the EasyPanel
or free iOS and Android mobile apps
The Discrete 8 downloadable remote App allows you to adjust all microphone input levels, Talkback levels, as well as Monitoring and Headphone volumes. Musicians can now control their own headphone volume through their phones. The engineer can check input levels from the tracking room. The device can be accessed from different computers connected to the same network.
