His innovations were already recognized by a number of sound engineers around the world, when in 2005 Levin and Antelope Audio introduced the oven-controlled crystal oscillator: the most stable clocking solution ever produced. A couple of years later he revealed the benefits of Atomic clocking for the audio industry. Now, following more than two decades of refinement, Antelope announces its latest innovation in audio clocking technology: the 10MX Atomic Clock.

Antelope Audio’s Pure2 Assists Top Mix Engineer Michael Brauer In Delivering a Deeper, Wider Sonic Picture

— Pure2 Mastering AD/DA Converter & Clock Finds a New Home in Brauer’s Rack Following Stringent ‘Audio Taste Test’ —

New York City, September 10, 2015 — If you ask multiple GRAMMY Award winning mix engineer Michael Brauer what the most indispensable piece of gear in his studio is, he’s unlikely to start rattling off names and model numbers of expensive preamplifiers, compressors, analog consoles or other equipment. Instead, he will almost without hesitation point to his ears. After getting his start at MediaSound Studios in 1976, one of the first things he learned is that perception is reality — and that ‘trusting your ears’ is far more important than equipment specifications, brand reputation or marketing hyperbole.
While it may sound cliche, this approach of ‘trusting your ears’ is at the core of everything Brauer does —whether it is choosing a new piece of equipment for his studio, upgrading his monitoring system or mixing a GRAMMY Award winning album for Coldplay. While Brauer is a New Yorker through and through, he is known for possessing a certain Missourian ‘show me’ cynicism when it comes to adding new gear to his rack set up.
This year, when Antelope Audio introduced its Pure2, Brauer was among the first to acquire the unit, following a ‘blind audio taste test.’ While he was already a happy user of Antelope’s renowned Trinity / 10M combination, Brauer displayed a healthy skepticism when Antelope approached him to try the Pure2. The manufacturer was given no incumbent bias or advantage, despite having been a friend of Antelope for many years.

Antelope Audio Pure2 and Isochrone 10M the Golden Ticket for Globetrotting Mastering Engineer Glenn Schick

— The One-Two Punch of World Class Clocking and Pristine I/O Enables Schick to Take High-End Mastering Rig Wherever Duty Calls —

Glenn Schick
Santa Monica, Calif., August 5, 2015 — When mastering engineer Glenn Schick found himself missing out on projects in his Atlanta-based studio because he had to attend a high profile awards show in Los Angeles, he realized he needed a new workflow that would allow him to continue his mastering work on the go. “I was thinking to myself, ‘Man, if I only had a portable setup it would be great to knock out a job in my hotel room’,” he recalls. He soon began assembling a travel-ready system based on the industry leading clocking technology of Antelope Audio’s Isochrone 10M and the high-quality output and input of Antelope’s Pure2 Mastering AD/DA Converter and Clock.
Since then, Schick has completely abandoned his old mastering rooms in Atlanta and masters all of his records on the go, including top hits such as Future’s DS2, which recently charted #1 in the United States.

— Orion32 is the Cornerstone of Tori Kelly’s Playback System On Tour, as Antelope Audio Hosts Exclusive YouTube Rehearsal Session Featuring Antelope Ecosystem of Products —


Santa Monica, Calif., July 28, 2015 — On Antelope Audio’s latest video of an exclusive performance of ‘Confetti’, Tori Kelly showcases her confidence and versatility as writer, performer, arranger, instrumentalist and vocalist. The session — mixed and engineered by the inimitable Mick Guzauski — is a sonic euphony, calling on key touchstones of the Antelope Audio ecosystem: the Orion32, the MP32 microphone preamplifier, the 10M Atomic Clock and the Zen Studio. The pristine sound of Antelope Audio can also be heard on Tori Kelly’s North American tour, which is supported each night with eight tracks of pristine playback running through the Orion32 interface.
Making her chart-topping album Unbreakable Smile come to life on stage was a formidable challenge. Allwyn Kelly, Tori’s father, explains how the tour happened upon Antelope Audio: “We were in need of a stem player and I was seeking the best sounding solution to help make Tori’s performances sound just like the record,” he says. “However, because of a myriad of challenges, this is often not possible. Antelope has become my savior, so to speak, and now the backing tracks add a richness in the quality of our live performances that we’ve never experienced before.”
