Single-capsule dual membrane condenser modeling microphone for authentic multi-pattern vintage mic emulations - instant access to 18 timeless classics with Antelope Audio’s cutting-edge Modeling Engine technology
The Antelope Audio Edge Duo is a large dual-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone with switchable polar patterns, that delivers clean and natural recordings with any interface or preamp. The microphone is designed with the artist/engineer in mind who needs one solution for numerous situations and applications. In addition to the high-performance hardware, Antelope Audio has developed a proprietary Modeling Engine that adds advanced tone-shaping to the microphone’s own pristine sound. The 18 different mic emulations make this a highly adaptive and effective recording tool - suitable for home- and professional-studio recordings of vocals, acoustic instruments, guitar & bass cabs, as well as drums & percussion.
The Edge Duo has been developed as a microphone that performs outstandingly even without any emulations. It features two low self-noise, high SPL, 6-micron gold-sputtered diaphragms. Combined with the low-resonance body and low-reflection head basket, the capsule powers a high-performance microphone capable of delivering ultra-fast transients, flat frequency response, and exceptional dynamic range for clean and natural-sounding recordings. In contrast to cardioid-only mics, the Edge Duo allows you to select from omni-directional, through cardioid, into figure-eight and in between.
In addition to its own pristine sound, the Edge Duo’s mic locker includes 18 emulations of the most popular mics for recording. Like the Edge Solo, it features dynamic and condenser classics, but differs with the addition of some Ribbon legends. To develop the emulations, Antelope Audio has worked with several revered European facilities, making rigorous measurements and testing multiple exquisitely preserved vintage microphones, as well as modern high-end classics. The updated library provides the necessary sonic versatility to suit any voice or instrument both at home and in the studio.
The purpose of the Edge Duo and all other modeling microphones in Antelope Audio’s portfolio is to not only equip you with a variety of sonically versatile emulations in one body but to also expand your scope of recording abilities with features not available with conventional microphones. The modeling engine enhances your workflow by allowing you to switch between microphone emulations with a single click during recording or post-production. The dual-diaphragm design complements this further by also enabling polarity alterations at any stage of your production. When paired with an Antelope Audio interface you can benefit from imperceptible latency while picking the best mic emulation for the job during tracking. If you prefer, record without any modeling, and alter the sound later on with the native emulation plugins* - compatible with any DAW or interface.
The Duo feeds two XLR inputs in your interface via a special Y-cable for a truly unique multi-dimensional sound.
Please note: iLok 2 or 3 required to use emulations as native plug-ins within your DAW

It is a nice mic, that by itself works just fine , the emulations are good but IMO not great, but it will get the job done. Antelope support is ok, but I wish they would expand on the software, comparing it to the sphere is my baseline
What a beautiful purchase, I’m so happy with this mic it has outstanding quality and has many options de explore for you to find what sound you prefer. It stands high up amongst the most versatile options in my opinion and honestly, coupled with an antelope interface.. it really offers tremendous quality and synergy. A banger for sure
