Antelope Audio has unveiled a new studio set that includes its Goliath HD | Gen 3 audio interface and Edge Duo microphone with switchable polar patterns and realtime mic modelling.
Goliath HD | Gen 3 is designed to work with any DAW connecting to Mac and Windows with 192 kHz audio over Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, HDX (available as a separately-purchasable, optional upgrade), and MADI (to Dante Bridge).
Its proprietary HDX Compensation Delay technology ensures that any analogue or digital input entering Pro Tools arrives as a fully-sample-accurate signal source, while the company’s custom-created, ultra-fast Thunderbolt driver delivers 64 channels of simultaneous playback and recording at up to sub-millisecond latency. Goliath’s digital and networking connectivity is established by AES, MADI, ADAT, S/PDIF, Thunderbolt, USB, and HDX connections combining to total 346 digital I/O channels.
On the analogue side, I/O includes 16 Accusonic mic preamps (M/L 1 through to M/L 16) with mic modelling support for the included Edge Duo microphone’s 11 emulations — namely, Berlin 47, Berlin 49T, Berlin 57, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Berlin M103, Tokyo 800T, Vienna 12, Vienna 414, Oxford 4038, and Sacramento 121R; two analogue INSERTS; and four instrument inputs (G1 through to G4) alongside an additional 16 analogue inputs (ANALOG IN) via two D-SUB 25 connectors (with 124dB DNR), while 32 analogue outputs (ANALOG OUT) over four D-SUB 25 connectors (with 129dB DNR), two transformer re- amp outputs (R1 and R2), and two independently-assignable headphone outputs (HP 1 and HP 2) bring the total to 38 analogue outputs.
Goliath also includes 36 realtime FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) hardware-based effects valued at over $3,000 USD taken from Antelope Audio’s AFX library, as well as Antelope Audio’s latest 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management system and AD/DA converters achieving 136dB DNR on its mastering-grade monitor outputs.
Goliath HD | Gen 3 is available for purchase at an RRP of $5,995 USD, including an Edge Duo modelling microphone.
