Edge modeling mic


Outstanding sound guaranteed
only when used with Antelope Audio interfaces with pre-amps.


Large diaphragm condenser modeling microphone

Antelope’s unique mic modeling process starts with the Edge microphone. An outstanding performer in its own right, this large-diaphragm condenser captures vocals and instruments with pristine clarity, providing the ideal platform for Edge mic emulation plug-ins.

Boasting a specially designed low-resonance body, the Edge features a pair of capsules with 6-micron gold-sputtered membranes. These edge-terminated capsules provide an incredibly smooth and natural response that can then be shaped to recreate the character of some of the costliest microphones in existence.

Crucially, the Edge’s two capsules feed two separate outputs, meaning that the signal from each capsule can be individual processed and recombined. While some mic modeling systems can only apply crude EQ adjustments on top of a static mic response, this dual capsule, dual output approach allows us to precisely model every polar pattern on every mic, with accurate on- and off-axis responses, for true multi-dimensional mic modeling.

Edge is designed for all pre amp-equipped Antelope Audio interfaces and outstanding sound can only be guaranteed when used with them. If a user is interested in the Edge emulations but uses an interface from another brand, they should go for the Edge Strip bundle, which includes a perfectly matched two channel Discrete Preamp and several powerful native plugins.

The Edge comes with a high-quality hard case, shockmount and pop filter, plus an XLR-Y cable.

"This track was a joy to record.

The mics and mic models sound great and whether you choose to commit your mic models on the way in, as I did most of the time or leave that choice up to the mix stage, the system is very flexible and very easy to use..."
