Built to perform
The Discrete 4 Synergy Core PRO is designed for stellar recordings at home and in the studio. It features industry-leading sound quality made possible by our latest generation AD/DA converters and transparent preamps.
This desktop-format audio interface embodies our zero-compromise approach to hardware and the intuitive software control panel helps you streamline your sessions.
VIRTUAL PATCHBAY ROUTING
Remove complexity, add creativity
The Discrete 4 Pro allows connection between any signal source and any destination for turning any session scenario into reality. Yes, seriously: every analog or digital output, effect strip or DAW track can receive any of the analog or digital inputs, effect returns, computer source channels or the four stereo mixes. All this flexibility is easily accessible via a drop-down menu on every channel or from the virtual patchbay screen – the choice is yours.
of a rack-mount interface
The Discrete 4 Pro packs rich connectivity in a small package. This can make it your go-to for a wide variety of applications both in a home studio, and in a larger facility – voice overs, small band recordings, multi-synth setups and more. And with both USB and Thunderbolt™ 3 connectivity, the interface achieves cutting-edge performance and easy integration with any setup.
The sound your music deserves
What is expansive connectivity if you don’t rock the best sound? The Discrete 4 Pro boasts industry-leading AD/DA converters, offering up to 130dB of dynamic range.
The new converters are backed up by our 64-bit AFC™ clocking technology – for even better transients, crystal-clear highs, and a stereo image with incomparable depth and detail.
