Portable – covering the needs of the whole band.
Current technologies have made sound recording as easy as grabbing a pen and pouring your feelings on paper. So producing your own music has become the contemporary equivalent of writing poetry.
Unlike the solitude that writing requires, music creation is usually a shared experience. And a creative jam with friends will require at least eight channels, packed in a portable interface that could easily fit in a backpack. A simple two or four-channel audio interface is no longer enough.
Zen Tour offers an array of FPGA FX: tape machine, preamps, eqs & compressors PLUS legendary guitar amps and cab and also a slew of cutting edge microphone emulations to be used by owners of the Antelope Audio Edge and/or Verge modeling mics.
4 mic pres & 4 line/hi-z ins with phantom power, 8 analog outs, 2 headphone and 2 reamp outs, and more
"All in all, this is a stellar box that sets a high bar for connectivity, routing, features, and overall sound. I think the Zen Tour could be the real breakout star of the Antelope line; it covers or exceeds the needs of most modern portable and project studios, with pro-level sonic quaility." - Recording Magazine
"It stands up very well against the other interfaces in my studio but its incredible flexibility is the real winner... If you want a high-quality
interface for studio, rehearsals and gigs you have to look at this. And their online support is excellent. 9.5/10"

Are you looking for the right gear for your recording set-up and budget?
Choosing the correct item for your home recording set-up is easy for some and confusing for most. Even if you have been working with audio for years, things are constantly changing. The marketing guff and searching the net usually sends you down a rabbit hole of time-wasting.
The core of Indigo Oak Studio is to help people set up and record by taking the mystery and costs out of recording. Right now, that cost you will save is time, patience and disappointment.
"Great service from Aaron-already Aaron has helped me make some important early decisions for going forward. It's clear he has an ability to keep things in understandable terms for noobs like me, and I have no doubt he can scale up the advice for all levels. Cheers Aaron and look forward to our next sesh. Pete"
