SANTA MONICA, CA, USA: trailblazing pro audio manufacturer Antelope Audio is proud to announce availability of Goliath HD | Gen 3 — advancing its formidable flagship offering as the world’s most powerful audio interface with brand-new, state-of-the-art AD/DA converters to achieve a stunning 136dB DNR (dynamic range) on its mastering-grade monitor outputs, offering the most comprehensive connectivity available anywhere, and also including a complimentary Edge Duo microphone with switchable polar patterns and realtime mic modelling via its impressive studio partner’s onboard FPGA-powered emulations and Accusonic mic preamps.
Of course, no studio production project is complete without audio effects; again, as implied by the ZERø-latency FPGA Engine and AFC Clocking Technology wording also boldly blazoned across its control feature-laden front panel, Goliath HD | Gen 3 does not disappoint. Indeed, it includes 36 realtime FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) hardware-based effects valued at over $3,000.00 USD, taken from Antelope Audio’s acclaimed AFX library — namely, AuraVerb (reverb); BA-31 (mic preamp model); ClearQ (linear EQ); FET-A76 (FET-based compressor); Gyraf Gyratec X (true tube stereo compressor); PowerEx (in-house expander); PowerFFC (feedforward compressor); PowerGate (noise gate); VCA-160 (VCA-style compressor); VEQ-1A (vintage tube EQ); VEQ-HLF (Pultec-style high- and low-pass filter); VMEQ-5 (midrange EQ); Stay-Levin (American tube compressor); and x903 (natural-sounding compressor), plus 11 guitar amps and 11 guitar cabinets.
Coupled with Antelope Audio’s latest 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking jitter management system, those Class-A mic preamps and audiophile-grade AD/DA conversion combine to deliver top-tier, studio-quality sound. Saying that, the acclaimed clocking can be distributed to suitably-equipped external studio equipment via Goliath HD | Gen 3’s twin WC OUT (Word Clock outputs) on BNC (Bayonet Neill–Concelman) connectors. Additionally, Antelope Audio’s 10M Rubidium Atomic Clock can be used for reference (connected on BNC via the dedicated 10M IN input).
Thanks to those brand-new, state-of-the-art AD/DA converters achieving a stunning 136dB DNR on its mastering-grade monitor outputs while retaining the centrepiece 3.5-inch high-resolution TFT (Thin-Film-Transistor) display with 262,000-colour capacitive touchscreen panel enabling immediate access to metering, preferences, gain adjustment, and mission-critical functionality, the world’s most powerful audio interface has become even more powerful, as Antelope Audio’s improved and refreshed Goliath HD | Gen 3 clearly demonstrates. Designed to handle working with the most demanding studio setups, it offers the most comprehensive connectivity the pro audio industry has yet seen… and heard!
Goliath HD | Gen 3 is available for purchase — priced at an RRP of $5,995.00 USD, including an Edge Duo modelling microphone — through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of authorised dealers or order online directly from Antelope Audio via the dedicated Goliath HD | Gen 3 webpage (https://en.antelopeaudio.com/products/goliath-hd-gen3), which also includes more in-depth information.
