Santa Monica, CA (May 24, 2016)—Antelope Audio and BAE Audio have announced they will collaborate on delivering authentic digital emulations of vintage recording gear.
The first emulation to be introduced is the BAE Audio 1073 EQ, a classic preamplifier/EQ known for its authentic transformers and components based on original specifications. The EQ from the BAE 1073 is available at no additional charge for owners of Antelope's new Orion Studio, Zen Tour and Goliath Thunderbolt interfaces.
Over the coming days and weeks, Antelope Audio will be announcing several more digital emulations, including BAE's entire range of EQs and compressors.
Antelope’s emulations utilize a proprietary hardware FPGA engine and enable real-time effects processing before a signal even reaches the DAW component. This allows users to access authentic digital emulations in real time without buffering.
Mark Loughman, president of BAE Audio, commented, "We’ve been approached by many companies on doing digital emulations in the past, and have always been hesitant on the company fit. When Antelope approached though, it was different. …We knew Antelope would be able to capture the essence of the original BAE 1073 better than anyone else on the market and we are very pleased at the result."
