Svetlin Simeonov 03.06.2021
I am Windows 10 user, I don't have MAC so I will speak from Windows/PC side only

Handling: 2/5
As other mentioned volume control knob is 1 for all 3 outs. There is a button you have to click to choose which out you control. Not practical at all. I swap 2 headphones very frequently + my monitos and this is big issue.

Features: 3/5
This device claims to have some great features like internal effects (DSP) on channels, but for example there is no MIDI IN/OUT , Software is complicated and buggy - Antelope constantly update it, but still it looks unfinished, made in a hurry. It has little screen with very nice level indicator. There was a BUG with screen brighness, when it was <100% it creates noise in monitors. Antelope was able to fix it with firmware update, but come on, this is untested hardware.

Sound: 2/5
I read many reviews about how great antelope converters are, and how good is their sound. This was not the case for me, I had very bad ground loop noise on USB, in my monitors, and it went even worst when I move my mouse. No matter what I switched off and changed it did not disappear. Contacted support on this, and after all the tests, they recommended to test the device on other PC system. It works on my Laptop in the office fine. Thou my 2 desktops had this ground loop noise in monitors. Support is slow, and was not able to help me, and the fact I can use this only on my laptop is not fine too.

I have Focusrite 4PRE usb and 2 Pre USB too. Both work great on same PC/monitors.

Headphone Out is weak, they made an firmware update which helped a little, but my 250ohm Neumann NDH20 must have almost 100% volume to sound good.

Quality: 3/5
Construction looks good, supplied cable is good - but something like electrical filters is missing IMHO

Overall: 2/5

Really bad experience with this device. This is my 6th or 7th Interface, and most of the others were cheaper. I never had such bad experience.

You need to register and activate device even for simple drivers to work.

The promised promotion code was delayed more than 7 days in my mailbox, and that was after I opened a ticket in support site.

Control panel is kind of complicated, they fixed load time a little - my started in 10-12 seconds.

ADAT has only 2 channels as INPUT - so you can't really expand it.

After uninstalling software, I had to clean services manually because they were not removed even after PC restart. Bad software quality for sure.

Oh and did I mention - no MIDI IN/OUT

Product need a lot of software polish and some hardware rework, maybe V2 or V3 will be good with promised features.


Antelope Audio Zen Go Audio Interface
Yurij 01.05.2021
Очень доволен своим выбором в пользу Zen Go. Интерфейс действительно звучит хорошо, имеет низкие задержки. С Kemper Amp и в связке с Cubase отлично работает. Огромное также спасибо команде Antelope Audio за качественную и быструю поддержку. До этого использовал карты Roland Quad Capture и Focusrite Clarett 2pre и испытывал с ними проблемы. Однозначно Zen Go превосходит их вместе взятых как по качеству, так и по софту . Рекомендую получше присмотретьсяк данному интерфейсу!


Mac friendly device that is disastrous in Windows
Desperados 27.05.2021
I have purchased two antelope zen go units in total, after returning the first one due to several issues..first of all whenever you remove the power cable from your laptop(even when it's turned off) your monitors will do this loud pop. Whenever the interface starts up it pops again..never expected such cheap decoupling from an interface in this price range. Also the drivers on Windows are just abysmal..Laggy, buggy, crackly...when it comes to sound quality though I admit that this interface has a surgical precision in reproducing frequencies but it is Unfortunately invalidated by the issues of digital processing which in my opinion, if you don't have the Mac system, you are better off with an analogue interface that doesnt have so many bells and whistles like DSP and such but does the job well and doesn't damage your speakers whenever it's powering up. Pity, the sound quality is amazing and the build quality as well but that's kind of it when it comes to Windows users, nothing makes me want to buy this again
Especially after two consecutive issues and 2 months of my life without a functional audio interface..


not perfect GAMECHANGER
Rorzek 19.04.2021
I'm using mine in home studio, to capture some demos and edit / mix in headphones.

Sound quality of converter and preamps is stunning. This is very professional sounding device on my desk, afordable with pocket money.

HP amp could be less resistive, cause at first touch bringing it up very high, with SRH 1440, huge differences in freq response can be heard. But regardless, first mix went very well, so it might not be a big problem.

DSP is still a mistery for me. EQs and COMPs sounds great, amp racks sounds ok, Reel to reel sounds... decent, at most. Whats the use of 16ch mixing capacity, when we can use plugins only on 4 channels? Lack of option of using DSP in DAW, so now we can only record with them, Luckly we can record a clean path as well.

Overall: worth the price. Besides all - sound, which is most important, does the hob very well. That's what makes me stay with Antelope for extended perioid of time. I hope Zen Go will earn for itself and for the next purchase, which will be Discrete or even Orion, but for shure - Antelope.
