Antelope Zen Tour Synergy Core by The Knack
Okay, so I started out with a Digi 008 years ago running through a Soundcraft desk, and it sounded great. The 008 died on me and I was skint so I got an Apogee Duet (mk 1), which I used for years which also sounded great. Then, due to being even more skint, and computer and connection issues I moved over to an Audient iD14, which, whilst not having the resolution of the two previous interfaces, had an amazing warmth and vibe. Then my computer died and my world fell apart for almost a year. Just recently I got my hands on some money, did a shed load of research, got a MacBook Pro, Sennheiser HD 800s and the Zen Tour Energy Core. I have to say I am STUNNED by the quality of the Antelope interface!!! The resolution is smooth, honest to a tee and and extremely refined. My Old Genelecs have been given a new lease of life, and in all honesty I don't think I realised how excellent they were until now.
I've literally only just got the unit, so I've yet to try the preamps, but if they are the same quality as the converters they are going to be AMAZING!!
The bundles plugins (38 of them I think!) are as good as you can get. Seriously, they weigh in against the likes of Waves and Slate et cetera.
The unit is stable and very convenient and easy to use, the company seems to have a passion for their products and I am WOWED by my purchase. NO BRAINER!.
