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:


Console-grade 6-transistor discrete microphone preamps


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


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


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


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


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

Discrete 8 features all of Antelope Audio's 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.

Hardware-based Audio Effects

Massive Hardware Modeling Capabilities

Already leaders in the field of digital audio clocking Antelope Audio is now on a mission to revolutionize the world of digital audio interfaces. Our custom Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) not only guarantees the lowest sound latency on the market when creating and streaming multiple mixes, but provides our devices with massive hardware modeling capabilities.

Forget About Expensive Effects

They often sound flat and soulless and can be quite a pain to your computer.
Our FPGA effects bring audio realism to a new level. They sound, behave and feel just like real hardware gear, because they ARE real hardware gear.
