The most affordable way to add Antelope's ground-breaking mic and preamp modeling technology to your existing recording setup
The Edge Strip bundle includes the stunning Edge Modeling Microphone, the Discrete MP ultra-linear mic preamp and our native AFX modeling plug-ins. These three elements work hand-in-hand to deliver a locker full of unobtainable vintage mics and a rack full of classic outboard gear, all for a fraction of the price of the originals
With the Edge mic, Discrete MP preamp and Fusion AFX Pack plug-ins, the Edge Strip is an all-in-one solution for high-quality recording that adds endless classic mic and channel strip combinations to your audio arsenal.
MULTI-DIMENSIONAL MIC MODELING
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 our mic emulation plug-ins.
Boasting discrete analogue electronics and 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.
The Edge comes with a high-quality hard case, shockmount and pop filter, plus the XLR-Y cable required to connect to the Discrete MP preamp.
PURE ANALOGUE AUDIO MEETS DIGITAL CONTROL
The dual-channel Discrete MP ultra-linear preamp was designed by Antelope founder Igor Levin himself to perfectly complement the Edge mic. With a discrete analogue signal path and up to 61db of gain digitally controlled in 1dB steps, it preserves every nuance captured by the Edge in crystal clear detail.
In addition to a full complement of front-panel controls, gain and phantom power can be remotely controlled from within your DAW via USB for ultimate convenience.
A unique feature of the Discrete MP is its dedicated calibration oscillator. This calibration signal (6dBu @ 1kHz) can be used to precisely adjust the input levels on your recording interface, ensuring accurate gain matching for the Edge mic’s dual outputs.
While it’s the perfect partner for the Edge, the Discrete MP’s ultra-linear response means it can also be used as a high-quality mic/line preamp for other mono and stereo sources, with two phantom-powered XLR/TRS combi jack inputs and two balanced TRS outputs.
