Antelope's Isochrone OCX emerges as the new quality standard in professional master clocks. A master clock is the heart of the digital studio, essential to maintaining stability and preserving sonic integrity. It is crucial that a master clock be flawless, and the Isochrone OCX exists to meet this need. Uncompromised design has created the most stable, best sounding master clock available.

Oscillator accuracy is compromised when exposed to temperature fluctuations. The Isochrone OCX addresses this completely with oven control. The oven's temperature controlled environment allows unparalleled oscillator stability.
ANTELOPE'S JITTER MANAGEMENT MODULE
Jitter free operation is critical in the modern studio. Antelope's Jitter Management Module makes jitter essentially nonexistent. Adaptive Loop Filtering is taken to the next level with a sophisticated DSP Based Multistage IIR filter, ensuring a jitter free, great sounding studio.
The Isochrone OCX can be locked to the most accurate clock on Earth: the Atomic clock. A studio can truly achieve perfect stability with the power of Atomic Clock. The OCX, OCX-V and Trinity are the only Master Clocks capable of locking to this unprecedented technology.
No nested menus to scroll through, control positions are plainly visible on front panel of the unit.
ANTELOPE CLOCKING. DRIVEN BY THE HIGHEST QUALITY OSCILLATOR IN EXISTENCE
The core of any master clock is the Crystal Oscillator. While other master clocks cut corners with their Oscillators, Antelope uses the best. The Oven Controlled Discrete Transistor Crystal Oscillator. Before Antelope, this component was found only in high-performance aerospace and telecommunication hardware. A better oscillator means better clocking, delivering 4X-6X less jitter and 100X greater stability than the closest competitor.
ACOUSTICALLY FOCUS CLOCKING, THE NEXT GENERATION OF DDS TECHNOLOGY
The OCX will noticeably improve the sound quality of connected devices. This is achieved with Antelope's exclusive Acoustically Focused Clocking technology (AFC). AFC is the 3rd generation of DDS, a technology introduced over ten years ago by Isochrone engineer Igor Levin with his ground breaking Aardsync master clock. This legacy of amazing sound further evolves with AFC. Providing far more than impressive specs, AFC is a hybrid of advanced engineering and exhaustive listening tests designed to deliver extraordinary sound.
PEACE OF MIND
Clocking is a critical task, and should never be confusing. With straightforward controls dedicated to specific tasks, warning lights for critical errors, extensive termination diagnostics and a highly visible, accurate frequency display, operating status is apparent at a momentary glance. Never before has such a powerful device been so easy to use.
