This rich, yet precise sound is achieved courtesy of Antelope's renowned Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management algorithm and Oven-Controlled crystal oscillator, along with advanced analog and digital circuit board design that's powered by a proprietary power supply. The MP8d is superbly designed, profoundly useful, and sounds incredible. But then, at AudioBuy.com.au Australia, that's exactly what we expect from Antelope Audio!

The analog versatility you need
The Antelope Audio MP8d is set up to handle whatever you throw at it. The mic pre inputs are on XLR/TRS combo connectors, and they accept both mic and line-level signals. Channels 1 and 2 are fitted with hi-Z inputs, accessible via dedicated front-panel TRS connectors. Want to connect your favorite outboard gear? Inserts are available on the rear panel. The MP8d also offers you the convenience of integrated monitoring with an audiophile-grade headphone amp on the front panel. A D-Sub 25 connector gives you analog connectivity, directly outputting your mic signals at line level. This setup makes the MP8d an ideal rackmate for Antelope's Orion32 and Zen Studio audio interfaces.
The efficiency of digital connectivity
Antelope Audio equipped the MP8d with a myriad of digital connectors that give you a broad variety of options for big-time flexibility and increased productivity. The MP8d's S/PDIF, AES/EBU, TOSLINK, ADAT, and MADI connections expand compatibility with your other studio gear, allowing for both easy connection your DAW or other outboard equipment, as well as expanding your channel count by cascading multiple MP8d units.
Easy-to-use software control
You control the MP8d with the ultra-sophisticated, yet remarkable easy-to-use software control Antelope Audio developed for their Orion32 and Zen Studio. A fast, intuitive user interface with color-coded drag-and-drop signal routing, multiple mixers, and a powerful DSP engine with onboard effects makes the MP8d extremely flexible, and well suited to a variety of recording applications. Programmable presets give you quick and easy recall of go-to configurations, while the unit's ergonomic physical front-panel knobs deliver precise real-time mic gain tweakability.
