Astounding sound quality

Ben Hanga, 20.04.2018
I bought this interface as an upgrade to my Pro40. I do mainly mixing and mastering and location recording. I have to say that the quality of the mic preamps is truly amazing. I bought the interface in February and since then I had few piano+vocal recording sessions and they sound beautiful. Every recording sounds pleasant and warm but very detailed. My favourite is the FPGA. The modelled vintage plugins are very accurate and significantly helped me to improve the final qualty of my work. I recommend this interface to everybody who?s looking for warmness and clarity.

For my purposes the best interface in its class!

Chrispyrosom, 23.04.2018
My 10 years old MOTU 896mk3 FW should be replaced, because the Firewire interface is increasingly no longer supported and MOTU has not supplied any current drivers for several years. In view of the quite large selection I was of the opinion relatively fast to be able to find a suitable replacement for it. I'll make it short: it was harder than expected. There are really a lot of promising products on the market and I've tested almost everything for me. And there came a bit of disillusionment. Especially with regard to latencies was USB2 and USB3 not really better than my old MOTU. And I'm already on the topic. If you are really interested in low latencies, Thunderbolt will not pass you by. And with audio interfaces that have both Thunderbolt and USB, the market is quite manageable.
In the end, I ended up at the "Antelope Discrete 4" and in total, very satisfied.

Advantages at a glance:
- very good sounding preamps
- The instrument inputs are by far the best I have ever tested on an interface (in direct comparison with recorded tracks)
- Onboard DSP with extensive, very high-quality effects incl. Amps simulations of Overloud
- good and clear operating software
- 4 headphone amplifiers with individual mixes
- very dedicated technical support

What could be better?
- matching rack ears for 19 "mounting
- the upgrade to "Premium" is quite expensive - maybe you should make here a more customer-friendly staggering of the usable features from "Basic" to "Premium".
