Superior clocking
& pristine
conversion

The clocking technology behind our audio interfaces is a direct descendent of our Isochrone line of ultra-high-end professional studio master clocks. This superior onboard clocking is the key to our high-resolution AD/DA conversion and overall audio quality.

Synergy Core
real-time effects processing

The Synergy Core platform enables you to apply onboard analog-modeled and 3rd party effects during live tracking, recording, and post-production. The processing takes place in real-time and with near zero latency, without ever putting a strain on your computer.

Discrete
preamp
architecture

Designing our discrete preamps starts with studying the great console preamps of the past. We use a combination of transistors that results in less noise and, most importantly, precise sound capture. Because there is one thing all recording engineers value – transparency.

What аudio interface
do I need?

Project/home-based studios and traveling professionals

The Zen audio interfaces have small footprint which enables our users to have professional studio-quality recordings wherever they are. The two smaller audio interfaces from that family, the Zen Go & Zen Q, are entirely bus-powered. The Zen Tour, in contrast, has extended analog I/O with a number of Hi-Z instrument level inputs in addition to two dedicated reamp outputs. It also features our advanced digital routing matrix, which functions as a virtual patch-bay. These features make the Zen Tour the better choice for more complicated setup configurations.
