New audio interface...Antelope Audio Orion Synergy Core

Tue Mar 16, 2021 10:37 am

I decided to give Antelope Audio a try and ordered the Orion Synergy Core through a music shop on Amazon

They were running a promotion where I received a free Edge Solo modeling mic

After ordering, I received a phone call from the shop informing me that the only unit they had in stock was a customer return but that there was no damage to the unit and the full warranty was still in effect. Before I could answer as to whether I would accept the "open box", the shop informed me that, if I accepted it, they would give me a $300 Amazon gift card - so, why not? I accepted

The unit arrived about an hour ago:

I then disconnected my Apogee Element 24 and uninstalled the Apogee Control App and moved on to registering and activating the Orion SC - the process was simple and, within 15 minutes, I was up and running

The one issue I am having is that my keyboard volume controls no longer work - I can only adjust volume on the Orion SC itself - if anyone knows if this is normal, kindly let me know

I noticed that the sound is different compared to the Element 24 -- not bad, just different, like it is more sterile as compared to the Element 24 - I think this is a good thing, especially for making sure I am actually hearing the sounds uncolored by the interface

I am looking forward to learning more about this interface and now on to the challenge of learning the Antelope Controller App
