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.
Hear the emulations
Antelope plug-ins serve up a treasure trove of vintage analogue mics with uncanny accuracy, delivering all the character and expressiveness heard on countless hit records.
Available in VST, AU and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, our native AFX plug-ins provide everything you’ve come to expect from our industry-leading FPGA FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations.
Ilok 2 or 3 required. Not included in the pack.
A Better Pair
Edge's powerful modeling algorithm brings the most out of the microphone when used with one of our Antelope Audio interfaces with pre-amps.
And we have created these special bundles for you.
