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.”

Santa Monica, CA, July 14, 2015 — Celldweller has been forging a reputation since the early 2000s for visceral, driving music that seamlessly blends rock and electronica in a way that could only be achieved by way of his unique larger than life productions. While his creative approach to sound has remained constant since his first Celldweller releases, his gear has continually evolved. Working out of his Detroit studio, he recently overhauled his system to take advantage of the industry-leading clocking and conversion of Antelope Audio’s Orion 32.
 
This multi-instrumentalist, who fans know as Klayton, considers any sound fair game for his compositions. “I will pick up anything around me that makes sound and try to figure out a way to use it,” Klayton explains. In the midst of a busy summer putting the finishing touches on his latest Celldweller release End of an Empire, Klayton is working on two film scores and preparing to work on a video game score in the fall that he recently signed on to compose. “I like to stay busy,” he says.

Producer BenDMA Finds His ‘Zen’ in Jamaica with Antelope Audio, Working on New Marsimoto Record

— With Premium Quality AD/DA Conversion and Commercial Studio Grade Mic Pres, Antelope’s Zen Studio Proves to Be the Perfect Companion for Poolside Production —

Kingston, Jamaica, June 29, 2015 — When BenDMA was asked to join the Green Berlin production crew in Jamaica to work on the new record for popular German rapper Marteria’s alter-ego Marsimoto, he felt as if he was reaching the top of a long ladder. “I started out as Marteria’s tour driver, then I worked in merchandise, then I was tour manager, backliner, everything you could think of,” he explains. “It was really brave of him to send me to Jamaica as a producer, but he trusted my abilities.” With Antelope Audio’s Zen Studio by his side, BenDMA was at the top of his game with the rest of his talented team of producers — helping to deliver Marsimoto’s most exciting record to date.

While recording in Jamaica, Green Berlin’s core producers Kid Simius, Dead Rabbit, and Nobody’s Face were supported by BenDMA — as well as Marteria producers the Krauts and K-Paul. “It was the first time we went outside Europe to produce a record,” says BenDMA. “One of the biggest challenges we encountered was staying within the luggage weight limit for the flight.” Suitcase weight limits were capped at 30 kilograms, and the small studio monitors each producer packed were 15 kilograms alone. “The portability of the Zen Studio was perfect,” he added. At only 2 kilograms, it left enough room for BenDMA to bring some synthesizers, a few mics, and a small rack with a preamp and compressor.

Lyon, France – April 2, 2015 — When Jochem Smaal graduated from the Art of Sound Program at the Royal Conservatoire of the Hague in the Netherlands this past September, he wasted no time setting up recording sessions in a variety of local studios and manning live sound at nearby venues.

Antelope Audio Zen Studio was the answer: a sleek and portable interface that would give him the 20 channels of simultaneous input he needed, in addition to 12 commercial, studio-grade preamplifiers along with built in clocking and conversion that Antelope is known for.

Santa Monica, CA, March 9, 2015 — In 2011, indie band Beauty Pill was commissioned by the Arlington, VA-based Artisphere museum to transform the facility’s Black Box performance space into an ‘active recording studio exhibit’ — a project called Immersive Ideal. The two week long recording session saw the band creating music in a ‘sonic fishbowl’, where they completed tracks for their next album — Beauty Pill Describes Things As They Are. The album, which is finally set for release this April on Butterscotch Records, was mixed by Beauty Pill’s lead singer, producer and principle songwriter, Chad Clark at Arlington, VA-based Bastille Recording Services, and mastered by Emily Lazar of NYC’s The Lodge — using Antelope Audio’s Isochrone 10M Atomic Clock, a pair of OCX-V Master Clocks and an Eclipse 384 converter.

Stevie Wonder’s Epic ‘Songs in the Key Of Life’ Tour Takes Analog Sweetness into the Present, with Clocking by Antelope Audio

— As More Tour Dates are Announced, Antelope Audio is the Sole Clocking Device at FOH and Monitors for Limited Run Engagements, with Zen Studio Capturing Each Performance —

 
Santa Monica, CA, February 6, 2015 — Last fall, Stevie Wonder announced that he would be taking his landmark Songs in the Key of Life album on the road in a limited run, 11-city engagement across North America. The announcement sparked the attention of major U.S. media, since it marked the first time Wonder has ever taken the Diamond-certified album on tour — and almost four decades after its original release in 1976. To be sure, Songs in the Key of Life is an American masterpiece that has helped define the very fiber of popular culture, while influencing countless musicians around the world. A faithful, touring rendition of the album was a daunting endeavor, since the double album took over a year to record and involved over 120 studio musicians.
