Unique interface
Pofa, 21.08.2019
I have chosen this interface overall for three features that I have not found all together in the same price range:
1- the 4 headphone out with 4 different mixes (very easy to do),
2- the DSP+FPGA models,
3- the Thunderbolt and USB connection.

At the moment I cannot make A/B tests with my other interfaces (an old but still good RME400 and a Focusrite Clarett Thunderbolt, both great for different reasons) but I read some serious reviews with scientific measurement that put the interface between the best products (in its price range of course).
With the DSP+FPGA models I can prepare, save and recall 4 channel strips for the headphones without latency and without bothering the CPU of the Mac.
I use it just for monitoring while at mix I can use all my plugins, but also the DSP+FPGA of the Antelope, thanks to the AFX2DAW plugin that in Pro Tools allows to use and see the Discrete4 as an external hardware, seeing all plugins in the insert list.
Few days after my business the price of the Discrete4 has dropped down and with more plugins. Antelope contacted me in order to give me for free the plugins of the new offer. This was nice and appreciated.
The performance of the interface is good. The drivers and control panel are good too, while sometimes a little bit complicated but probably is the “learning curve”.
The output power of both headphones and monitor out is good but not so abundant compared to the “High Level” of the RME. Also the way the loudness increase could be better, on the Focusrite is perfect having at 12H always the perfect loudness limit for the normal use, while on the Antelope there is a big increase on the last quarter form 3 to max.
I don't know if it's possible via driver/firmare update to implement more output levels and to change the way the volume control reacts.

Said that the Discrete4 with his actual offer, price and unique features is, in my opinion, hard to beat at the moment.
