Antelope Audio Discrete 8 and Basic FX Pack

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.

Enjoy the sound of legendary FX gear in your DAW
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 will soon be accessible in any DAW via the upcoming AFX2DAW Plugin.

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the upcoming AFX2DAW 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.
