This is the third video post in which Igor Levin talks about clocking technologies and Antelope’s products.
This time the topic is the Isochrone Trinity — a universal high-definition master clock employing Antelope’s 4th Generation of Acoustically Focused Clocking with 64-bit Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and up to 384 kHz audio streaming.
Igor explains the major strengths of Trinity and what makes it one of the most preferred clocks not only in sound recording and mastering studios, but in film scoring facilities as well.
Santa Monica, CA., December 19, 2011 — Antelope Audio has named Ferndale, Michigan-based Vintage King Audio its 2011 Dealer of the Year, Pro Audio. Vintage King was recognized for its outstanding sales performance, customer support and overall product knowledge of Antelope Audio’s master clocks and digital to analog converts (DACs).
“We are pleased to present Vintage King with our Dealer of the Year award in the Professional Audio category,” commented Marcel James, Director of Sales for Antelope Audio. “Since its founding in 1988, Vintage King has been an essential resource for the pro audio community, serving the market with not only the best products but also an incredibly knowledgeable staff. In 2011, they have done a fantastic job with Antelope Audio’s products — particularly with our Trinity and 10M clocks.”
This is the first of a series of blog posts and videos with Igor Levin, the CEO and founder of Antelope Audio. Igor is not just the CEO, but also the main engineer behind some of the most prominent innovations in clocking technologies in the last 20 years. I know the words ‘innovative’ and ‘innovations’ have lost their meaning dissolving in the ocean of marketing language that is flooding us, but there’s no other way to describe the Oven Controlled Oscillator or the Acoustically Focused Clocking which are in the core of so many studios around the world.
So, in these series Igor is going to share his thoughts about sound, about the technologies he invented and the products he created.
Terminology related to digital clocking appears frequently in the audio production world, but is often misunderstood. Digital clocking impacts any studio, large or small, and a proper understanding is essential to achieving quality digital audio.
Clocking can be the key to making digital sound “warm” and alive. The following is an example to help familiarize users with the terms and concepts involved with digital clocking.

Brauer Cites ‘Natural Depth and Width’, Insisting on Antelope for Mixing and Mastering Phases of all his Projects
New York, October 19, 2011 — Four years ago, Michael Brauer was coaxed to stop by Antelope Audio’s booth at the Audio Engineering Society convention, where he was asked to A/B the company’s brand new product: the Isochrone 10M Atomic master clock generator. Brauer, who had recently finished mixing My Morning Jacket’s Evil Urges album, was skeptical that another clock besides the Antelope OCX he was already using could make a significant and discernable difference in the audio quality. But after listening to ‘blind’ A/B comparisons of his mixes played after adding the 10M to the atomic input of the OCX and those without the 10M, he was sold.
