The All-In-One Production Suite is a smart and speedy way of plunging headlong into pro audio, fuelling creative fires for a guaranteed sizzling summer — and all without breaking the bank. Better still, since it has been assembled to compliment the unique features of Antelope Audio’s acclaimed Synergy Core audio interfaces, it is a surefire winner when it comes to helping produce album-quality recordings at home, in the studio, or on the go.
Berlin-based Bitwig’s truly cross-platform — Linux-, macOS-, and Windows-compatible — Bitwig Studio surely plays its part in The All-In-One Production Suite’s creativity-charged proceedings as an innovative music production and performance software title that takes musical ideas through each stage of production. Put it this way: when paired up with one of Antelope Audio’s Synergy Core audio interfaces, it can capably send and receive CV (control voltage) signals using the audio interface in question’s DC-coupled line outputs to create a (suitably-equipped) synthesizer-friendly experience. Enjoying intuitive sequencing and streamlined workflows with an array of advanced editing options for the studio world and beyond by tapping into Bitwig Studio’s nonlinear clip launcher and arranger alongside 90-plus included virtual instruments, audio effects, and sound design tools takes on a whole new musical meaning when also accessing Synergy Core effects for crafting signals into sound, thanks to The All-In-One Production Suite’s complimentary quartet of summer sizzlers on offer.
Digging deeper, the perfectly portable, perfectly formed Zen Tour Synergy Core is aimed at musicians and producers, both when working in a desk-bound capacity or, obviously, on the go. Its impressive specification highlights palpably belie its diminutive — 255 mm / 10.0” (w) x 62 mm / 2.4” (h) x 168 mm / 6.6” (d) — dimensions: ThunderboltTM 3 and USB 2.0 (Mac and Windows) connectivity; 8 | 14 channels of analog I/O; 4x Combo + 4x TRS (Discrete Ultra-Linear) preamps; 124dB A/D and 130dB D/A (monitors) conversion; 4x DSP (Digital Signal Processing) + 2x FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) Synergy Core effects processing; 36 included effects; 32 effects channel strips, each with four slots for up to 128 effects; flexible signal routing options — works like a digital patch bay (with dedicated routing for DAW, effects, and mixers); re-amp outputs; and touchscreen. Equally as at home on a desk top as it is on the go — albeit a little easier on the wallet without compromising on quality, Discrete 4 Synergy Core comparatively offers ThunderboltTM 2 and USB 2.0 (Mac and Windows) connectivity; 4 | 10 channels of analog I/O; 4x Combo (Discrete 6-transistor) preamps; 121dB A/D and 121dB D/A (monitors) conversion; 2x DSP + 1x FPGA Synergy Core effects processing; 36 included effects; and four effects channel strips, each with eight slots for up to 32 effects. Aimed at being the heart of production and commercial studio workflow, the rack-mountable Discrete 8 Synergy Core expands upon its Discrete 4 Synergy Core ‘little brother’ — both size- and specification-wise — with ThunderboltTM 2 and USB 2.0 (Mac and Windows) connectivity; 8 | 14 channels of analog I/O; 8x Combo (Discrete 6-transistor) preamps; 121dB A/D and 130dB D/A (monitors) conversion; 2x DSP + 1x FPGA Synergy Core effects processing; 36 included effects; and eight effects channel strips, each with eight slots for up to 64 effects. Ending on a high-spec high note, the rack-mountable Orion Studio Synergy Core capably lives up to its name with ThunderboltTM 3 and USB 2.0 (Mac and Windows) connectivity; 14 | 24 channels of analog I/O; 12x Combo (Discrete Ultra-Linear) preamps; 128dB A/D and 130dB D/A (monitors) conversion; 6x DSP + 2x FPGA Synergy Core effects processing; 50 included effects; 32 effects channel strips, each with eight slots for up to 256 effects; flexible signal routing options; re-amp outputs; and hardware inserts.
Innovation knows no bounds as Antelope Audio’s advanced Synergy Core platform that lends its name to The All-In-One Production Suite’s quality quartet of audio interfaces is in a league of its own, thanks to the built-in acceleration for emulations of studio gear — providing a creative balance between popular designs and rarer European designs — and allowing for monitoring and recording without latency, as well as mixing and mastering without adding CPU (Central Processing Unit) load to a DAW host computer. Controlling and recalling effects settings is perfectly possible using Antelope Audio’s AFX2DAW native plug-in for Mac/ThunderboltTM, while users can easily expand the effects library supplied with their chosen audio interface, starting at $55.00 USD per effect from here: https://en.antelopeaudio.com/software-store/
Sealing the deal when it comes to The All-In-One Production Suite-induced sizzling summer is Edge Solo, Antelope Audio’s high-quality single-capsule large- diaphragm condenser microphone — presently priced at $499.00 USD/€499.00 EUR individually — included for free. Flexibility abounds as it not only delivers superlative sound straight out of the box, with a fixed cardioid pickup pattern feeding a single mono XLR input channel on the Synergy Core audio interface in question, but also adds creative tools for the whole production process. Thanks to Antelope Audio’s cutting-edge modeling technology, users can currently emulate over 20 of the world’s most iconic vintage microphones with uncanny accuracy. As such, vocal recording really is as simple as choosing a classic mic emulation and starting to track in real-time. Recording clean alternatively allows freedom to choose later from the modeling options during the mixing stage.
Saying all that, then, anyone taking advantage of The All-In-One Production Suite is literally buying in to an all-in-one production suite set to take their recording journey to the next level with a full package of quality products, priced like never before. Banish buyer’s remorse by plunging headlong into pro audio, fuelling creative fires for a guaranteed sizzling summer — and all without breaking the bank.
