Antelope Audio Edge Solo Modeling Microphone
Single-capsule large-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone for cardioid vintage mic emulations - get instant access to 18 iconic microphones in one body with Antelope Audio’s cutting-edge Modeling Engine technology
The Antelope Audio Edge Solo Synergy Core is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a cardioid pickup pattern, that delivers clean and natural recordings with any interface or mic preamps. The microphone is designed for the artist/engineer 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 studio and pro audio recordings of vocals, acoustic instruments, guitar and bass cabs, as well as drums & percussion.
A Mic That Stands On Its Own
The Edge Solo Synergy Core features a low self-noise, high SPL and a 6-micron gold-sputtered diaphragm. Combined with the low-resonance body and low-reflection head basket, the single 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.
A Plethora of Tone-Shaping Emulations
In addition to its own pristine sound, the Edge Solo Modeling Microphone has the ability to emulate 18 of the most popular mics in recording history. From classic dynamic mics to rare Tube and FET large-diaphragm condensers, the Edge Solo does it all.
To develop these 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 18 emulations provide the necessary sonic versatility needed to suit any voice or instrument both at home and in the studio.
A New Vision for the Recording Experience
The purpose of the Edge Solo, Edge Duo, Edge Quadro, and all other modeling microphones in Antelope Audio’s portfolio is to not only equip you with a variety of 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 studio microphone emulation for any sound source during tracking. If you prefer, record without any modeling, and alter the sound later on with the native emulation plug-ins, compatible with any DAW or interface.
Please note: iLok 2 or 3 required to use emulations as native plug-ins within your DAW

I really love this mic. It sounds christal clear plugged into Antelope Zen Audio Synergy Core and the emulations are amazing. I am ABing many mics I have in studio with dedicated external preamps to this mic and I very impressed: it sounds AMAZING. I think it is going to become my go to mic for quick voiceovers or recordings because it is so easy to set up, getting a clean recording, and then find the color you want in the "mic locker". For the price, it is a steal. It is so good that I am thinking to sell some of my other mics and preamps.
Versatile good sounding mic with caveat. Full functionality on input only if you have an antelope audio interface. If you're like me using Apollo or any other interface you have to insert the modeling effect in your daw like a vst plugin.
The mic is a game changer !!!
This thing’s really cool! I own a couple of the mics it emulates and if you close your eyes it feels about right. I also love the size of this thing. Perfect mic for me.
It is a good mic, being free, it is really good, the mic emulations well, I can’t really say, I own a couple of the emulated models(414, TLM103 etc) but I feel these mics are very useful, just don’t try and compare its pointless
I give the Antelope Audio Microphone Modeling System a Five Star Rating.
If you are a professional studio or an audio enthusiast the power if these microphones is amazing. . .
The flexibility of the microphones truly gives you different microphones with one device.

The Antelope Edge Solo is truly a wonderful and much needed quality modeling microphone. It has the ability to take on the characteristics of many of the world’s most sought after vintage microphones. Coupled with Antelope’s virtual mic preamps, compressors and equalizers, there’s no excuse for not finding the right vocal chain for any vocalist or instrument. I absolutely love mine and highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed.
My first Antelope gear, It's an excellent product, very versatile for any kind of use, Really happy with it
When I told a few friend of mine that I was going the modeling route with microphones they were very skeptical, but let me tell you this thing has made a believer out of all of us. Its a great mic on its one but adequately models top of line vintage microphones. You can really tell the difference as you rotate through different microphones. Antelope is awesome!
