Antelope Audio Zen os the first professional portable solution with 12 mic pres, 20 analog ins and 14 outs, DSP effects and 24 channel low-latency with both PC & Mac connectivity via USB.
Zen Studio is the professional, portable audio interface with the most competitive analog and digital connectivity. The 12 world-class mic pres, Antelope's signature clocking, the on-board DSP effects with multiple monitor mixers and the proprietary low-latency USB connectivity make Zen a world-class mobile recording system, that can easily fit inside a backpack or gear bag. Zen Studio is designed to meet the needs of the modern day producer or engineer on-the-go, as well as location sound engineers, sound designers, independent bands and musicians in search of greater sound quality and flexibility.
Antelope Audio Acoustically Focused Clocking provides the most authentic analog sounding A/D & D/A conversion on the market. Antelope's clocking and conversion along with the custom USB technology implemented in Zen are identical to the ones in the top-selling 32-channel Orion interface which is a centerpiece in the playback rigs for artists such as Rihanna, Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake, and inside the mixing and mastering studios of engineers like Eric Sarafin (aka Mixerman), Brian Vibberts, Howie Wienberg or electronic music producers like Robert Babicz and Dusty Kid.
Zen Studio is fully controllable using an intuitive desktop application on both PC and Mac, offering flexible signal routing and DSP-based effects alongside custom presets. Users can create up to four independent, zero-latency mixes assignable to any outputs, including the two independent headphone outputs and monitor outputs. All audio I/O is available simultaneously for a total of 38 possible input and 32 output channels, plus 24 simultaneous I/O channels via custom USB, supporting 24-bit, 192 kHz audio resolution.
Building on the circuitry of the SmallDI, the Avenson Iso DI adds two optional isolation stages.
The main signal path is still a clean, wide bandwidth transformerless FET amplifier, but the power is generated with an isolated DC to DC converter so that you can have true ground isolation and still run the IsoDI on phantom power.
The IsoOut jack can be a buffered, transformer isolated output to feed amplifiers or other inputs that can compromise the performance of the main signal path if connected in parallel. Now there is a way to get a clean DI signal even when there is bad stage power that causes the amp to buzz from light dimmer hash!
The switchable IsoOut / Parallel jack give you the flexibility to configure the jack as a summed input, a parallel connected output, or a transformer isolated output.
All of this in a rugged palm sized aluminum extrusion that makes it easy to toss into your gig bag or pack into a road case.
The Drawmer MC2.1 is a high quality monitoring controller designed to provide absolute transparency so that what you record is exactly what you hear - this is the philosophy that is at the heart of the design of the MC2.1 Monitor Controller.
With the Drawmer MC2.1 Monitor Controller incorporated into your system you combine the clarity, fidelity and transparency of the highest quality monitoring circuit with the complexity of a host of mix checking features. It is versatile and intuitive, but above everything else, where the Drawmer MC2.1 excels is in it’s accuracy and ability to faithfully reproduce what has been recorded.
The Drawmer MC2.1 incorporates four inputs with three stereo balanced speaker outputs, plus a dedicated mono speaker/sub-woofer output each with individual left/right trims under the unit to provide complete control over level matching. The active circuit has been designed to faithfully produce the audio signal whilst removing many of the problems that a passive circuit will bring. In addition, it has a host of mix checking features not often found on other controllers, such as individual left/right cut, as well as two seperate headphone amplifiers and a talkback facility, making the MC2.1 a true engineers tool.
Whether you’re mastering a cd/dvd, recording, checking a mix for balance and e.q, doing A/B comparisons, plus a mutlitude of other tasks, you’ll have spent weeks designing the perfect studio environment and a fortune on active speakers, dynamics processors, various microphone and preamplifier combinations as well as a whole room full other gear, one thing is for sure - a monitor controller is central to every recording setup and probably the most important element of the entire signal chain - providing the ‘reference’ listening signal that enables the user to achieve the optimal mic placements, the perfect balance and EQ etc. There is one thing that should always be absolutely guaranteed - that you can rely on the accuracy of your monitor controller.

The Focal Alpha 80 active studio monitors are the flagship model of the Alpha Series range of studio monitors from Focal. The Alpha 80 is the ideal choice for producing music which is rich in bass or which requires high power reserves.
Thanks to Focal’s exclusive technologies, its expertise in terms of speaker drivers and to the mechanical design of Alpha studio monitors, optimum integration is guaranteed. The environments for music production are very diverse, they are not optimised acoustically, or have only been done so insufficiently, and the listening distances vary greatly. Whether for confined spaces, rooms with poor acoustic qualities or for styles of music, which require neutrality, dynamics and high SPL, Alpha studio monitors are the solution for you.
Right from the first stages of R&D, the Alpha line was designed as a solution to these problems whilst focusing on one objective in particular: improving the quality of music production by giving the user better control over the audio spectrum.
The Focal Apha 80 is composed of a 8” (21cm) woofer/ midrange speaker with a Polyglass cone loaded in a large laminar port and of a 1" (25mm) aluminum inverted dome tweeter. It features a 40W amplifier for the tweeter and a 100W amplifier for the woofer, and has a frequency response of 35Hz to 22kHz (+/- 3dB).
Each of Focal's Alpha studio monitors is equipped with two class AB amplifiers. The high‑current amplifiers enable complete control of the dynamics of the audio signal. This also allows for listening at high volumes without distortion.
The Vintech Audio 609CA is a transformer balanced stereo compressor / limiter with with class A, all discrete output amplifiers. The compression and limiting circuitry is based on the classic Neve 33609 compressor, while the output amplifiers are more similar to the Neve 2254 compressor.
Please Note: The Vintech External PSU is required to power the 609CA Compressor.
The SE Electronics RNR1 is an innovative HF Active Ribbon Microphone that has been designed by SE Electronics in partnership with Mr Ruper Neve.
For many decades ribbon mics have been used by engineers for their extremely natural sounding reproduction of source material. The nature of their performance differs greatly from condenser mics, which by comparison sound very 'up front' and lack the harmonic depth of a good ribbon.
Even at the high end of the market, the customary roll-off of almost all the top end frequencies has always been a major drawback. The frustration with all ribbons is - depending on the model - little or no performance past 7-10KHz, which is why condenser mics dominate the recording market.
The traditional appeal of the condenser then has been the assumption of consistent frequency response from 20Hz to 20KHz. Traditionally engineers using ribbons, however expensive, have had to accept their significant limitations or have had to augment the recording with a condenser mic to capture the high frequency absent from the ribbon output. The sE RNR1 is the world's first ribbon microphone that offers the same consistency of frequency response; from 20Hz right up to 25kHz whilst retaining the fullness and warmth you've come to love about ribbon mics.
