Antelope Modeling Microphones

Discrete 8 meets Edge and Verge

Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, these new modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.

Edge and Verge are modeling microphones by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, these new modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.

Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance. Record the dry signal and apply mic emulations later, experimenting freely and creatively.

  • Vintage Mic Emulations for Edge Microphone coming with this bundle:

Berlin 47 FT, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T, Berlin M103, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Oxford 4038, Sacramento 121R, Vienna 414, Berlin 49T.

  • Vintage Mic Emulations for Verge mic coming with this bundle:

Berlin 184, Perth 55, Freiburg 6, Aalborg 4006, Hamburg 40

Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Antelope founder Igor Levin designed groundbreaking fully discrete electronics. Hand-selected capsules were chosen and encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape for optimal sonic performance. Edge is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.

Verge is a small diaphragm modeling microphone suited for both nuanced accuracy and high SPL recording. Also exhibiting excellent performance on it’s own, it can take on the character and personality of the world’s best small diaphragm condensers and electrets.
