Antelope Audio Zen Go Synergy Core Thunderbolt Interface w/ Edge Note Microphone

Antelope Audio Zen Go Synergy Core Thunderbolt 3 Bus-Powered Audio Interface

The Zen Go Synergy Core is a portable desktop interface that allows self-recording artists to record from virtually anywhere. This device incorporates the same Antelope Audio technology employed by award-winning producers, from our renowned 64-bit AFC™ clocking technology to the powerful, effects-packed Synergy Core onboard platform. Simply put, the resulting sound quality and processing capabilities are in a class of their own, making it ideal for any home studio.

  • Bus-powered Thunderbolt 3 audio interface with advanced audio driver for optimized streaming, playback, & low-latency recording for Mac/Windows
  • Two discrete ultra-linear preamps with 65 dB gain and switchable mic/line/Hi-Z modes offer console-grade performance & low noise when recording.
  • Class-leading AD/DA conversion aided by 64-bit Acoustically-Focused Clocking (AFC™) technology that delivers increased sound width & separation for recording and streaming audio.
  • 37 Synergy Core analog-modeled effects included, as well as over 50 optional expansions available. Processed in real-time with imperceptible latency.
  • User-friendly software control includes onboard effects processing, direct monitoring, signal routing, and volume settings

Professional sound at your fingertips

With its exceptional sound quality, the Zen Go Synergy Core closes the gap between artists with access to premium studios and home creators. The pristine sound comes from a unique combination of professional-grade AD/DA converters, discrete ultra-linear preamps, and the stand-out sonic quality of Antelope Audio’s 64-bit AFC™ technology that’s used by the most prestigious international studios and trusted with the scoring of some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters.

A benchmark for pro audio

The Thunderbolt 3 interface is designed to enhance your workflow at every angle, with its optimized audio driver for low-latency playback, streaming, and recording. This pro-grade technology lets you focus on production without being weighed down by latency, insufficient channel count, and limited bandwidth when streaming and recording. Paired with onboard software, grasp seamless control over essential parameters like: signal routing, effects, sub-mixes, and monitoring levels.

Create from anywhere, at anytime

Antelope Audio’s first bus-powered interface is optimized for ultra-low latency recording, high-resolution playback, creative beat making, and podcasting – from virtually anywhere.

with RCA connectivity–all while preserving sound integrity.You don’t need a dedicated power supply: With a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, you can power the Zen Go Synergy Core from your computer and use it to its full potential.

Full production pack from the start

Zen Go Synergy Core comes with 37 of the finest analog-modeled effects to create stunning, sonically-rich productions. In addition to exclusive compressors, EQs, and preamps, this interface comes with 22 guitar amps & cabs, a guitar tuner, and a signature reverb that can be applied to your tracking and mixing session in real-time.

Expand your effects collection by purchasing more classic go-to units, true rarities never before recreated in digital form, and 3rd party effects (like Antares’ Auto-Tune Synergy).

Better workflow, better recording

Every feature available to you in the interface’s Control Panel has been added to improve the important aspects of your workflow. Since DAW monitoring inevitably adds latency, you can monitor directly through the interface. With the routing options, you can easily set-up a near-zero latency mix and stack it with your favorite Synergy Core effects – without overloading the onboard platform. Dedicated signal metering is available for both input and output levels on the front panel display and in the software control panel.

Incredible flexibility & connectivity

Two combo XLR jacks provide flexibility to choose between our custom discrete mic preamps, line, or Hi-Z inputs. These are easily configurable via the control panel. The two TRS balanced output (mirrored with the two RCAs) sends the signal from the professional-grade D/A converter to two separate sound systems. Use one for your main monitors and the other with any other sound system

Antelope Audio Edge Note Small Condenser Modeling Microphone

Edge Note

Small condenser modeling microphone

A next generation modeling microphone with impressive recording capabilities, allowing you to get creative by applying the sound of more than a dozen classic microphone models. The Edge Note is a perfect studio solution for capturing a wide range of musical instruments. Thanks to its exceptionally high Sound Pressure level and extra features like the Pad attenuation and High-pass filter make the Edge Note the ideal choice for instrumentalists, sound engineers and studio owners who are searching for a flexible, high-quality affordable recording tool.

  • Mic modeling technology reproduces the sound of classic microphone models either natively inside your DAW or via FPGA processing inside an Antelope interface (in real time).
  • High sound pressure level provides plenty of headroom to record loud sources such as drums, guitars, brass instruments and more.
  • Pad attenuator functionality with -10 and -20db ensures virtually zero distortion or clipping–even with the loudest sources.
  • Compact size and stylish black matte color.
  • Fully compatible with 3rd party audio interfaces. Optimized for use with Antelope Audio discrete technology preamps.

Innovate with all the classics

The Edge Note takes on the character of some of the finest small diaphragm mics in existence, delivering stunning detail and realism.
A total of 13 mic emulations reproduce the sound of legendary microphones used in the best recordings from the last century. They can be used in real-time with an Antelope interface (via Synergy Core processing). If the user doesn’t have an Antelope interface, a native plug-in emulation is available for any DAW and the microphone emulations can be easily applied to the dry audio recording

*iLok 2 or 3 required to use emulations as native plugins within your DAW

The key to transparent recordings

The flat frequency response of the Edge Note provides an exceptionally clean signal. Capturing the smallest detail of an acoustic guitar or a graceful cello becomes an easy task.

Capturing audio in the most neutral way without dramatically boosting frequencies across the spectrum ensures that when applied, the mic emulations will sound as close as possible to the original microphone being emulated.

Loudness is no obstacle anymore

With an astonishing SPL of 146dB, the Edge Note is an excellent choice for recording the loudest sources. Get the most out of a drummer’s performance or a blasting trumpet solo without clipping the converter. For particularly demanding scenarios, the attenuation pad can reduce the level with -10 or -20dB. Additionally, the high-pass filter facilitates the handling of the low-end frequencies and negative aspects of the proximity effect.


  • 13 microphone emulations of classic microphone models
  • Back-electret design provides transparent, balanced sound, & accurate transient responses
  • Cardioid polar pattern suitable for wide variety of recording scenarios
  • Frequency response of 20Hz–20kHz covers the audible spectrum
  • Signal-to-noise ratio of 69dB
  • Pad attenuation switch (-10db and -20dB) improves close-miking of loud sources, ensuring a clean signal without distortion.
  • Maximum sound pressure level of 146dB
  • High-pass filter switch (75Hz and 115Hz) eliminates low-frequency rumble and compensates for proximity effect
  • Metal housing and black-matte finish provides style and endurance
  • Includes shock mount holder to eliminate unwanted vibrations and provide easy positioning
  • 48V DC Phantom Power required
