Verge Modeling Microphone

The Antelope Audio Verge is a new small diaphragm modeling microphone from Antelope Audio designed to be paired with the new Discrete series audio interfaces. In order to reproduce any small diaphragm classic mic, Antelope chose the cleanest possible mic design.

The Verge can handle very high SPL levels, up to 132 dB, without the use of a pad and can replicate the responses of the industries top small condenser mics. The frequency range spans from 40 Hz - 20 kHz. The Verge uses discrete electronics which are matched and calibrated for the Accusonic preamps that are available in the new Discrete interfaces. The user interface allows you to change the microphone pre or post-recording as well as adjust the high-pass filter.

Using the AFX2DAW plug-in, you can control and store all your settings within your DAW. Eight AFX can be saves and recalled into your session. You can have as many mics models active as you have available preamps in your Discrete Antelope interface.

Pair the Verge microphone with a Discrete interface by taking advantage of the pre-built bundles by Antelope. Owners of other Antelope FPGA ready interfaces are eligible for preferred pricing for individual mics and bundles.

My favorite interface of all the ones I owned. I have had Motu, RME, Yamaha, Avid and Apogee Interfaces in the past. The antelope has the best conversion clocking and preamps of all of them!

By Jeff A on November 1, 2021

I have done a ton of research on interfaces with nice pre-amps, and after looking around I don't think any are as good as this, esp. with this bundle deal. The preamps sound amazing, the fx sound great, and I immediately have put this into the center of my home recording studio. The Edge Solo is really nice, and it is just crazy you get all of this for $999. Installing the software is slightly confusing, but there's a good video series to help and the customer service is great if you have any questions. I've read a lot of reviews about Antelope having bad drivers and software, but I haven't run into any issues running this with Pro Tools on Windows 10. Whatever was going on before has been ironed out. I recommend this to all of my friends who are thinking about getting something like this or many and Apollo.

By Will B on January 7, 2021

First time customer and bought from Dave Fisk, who helped me after hours!

I did a lot of research when looking into a new audio interface to replace my old unit. Compared this to other brands including UAD, Arturia, RME. For the money, Antelope Audio offered a LOT! I pulled the trigger and I'm very pleased with my decision. The sound is just phenomenal and the converters are precise and clinical. The monitor line goes to an audiophile setup and the presentation and dynamics is just pure enjoyment. This unit has an added benefit of doubling like an expensive audiophile DAC for your listening setup.

I'm on a Mac 2018 Big Sur. No hiccups, AFX2DAW just works. I plugged in the edge solo microphone, set up the routing, chose one the Berlin mics and was able to post on my Youtube channel in no time at all.

- Superb audio and dynamics
- Number of connections
- The plugins!
- Price point
- The mic plugins!

What Can Be Improved:
- Console (Discrete Line and Zen/Orion lines have different consoles, the latter with more capabilities)
- Auraverb is for monitoring only should be offered as an AFX

Future Proof, Solid Build, Great Sound, lots Of Power

By KBustoz on October 28, 2020

The Discrete4 is a great interface! For its class it has the best quality build and sound that I’ve heard.The on-board plugins are the best I’ve heard too. Tons of connectivity and routing options that we’re a quick learn to navigate and it has CV outs!!

By James on October 19, 2020

The pristine sound and ease of use are off the charts with this interface. I purchased it after a ton of research and I am glad I did. It punches way out of its price point. I am very happy with my Discrete 4!

By Trey on August 31, 2020

As an serious musician we like to turn on our gear and go! That's just what Antelope allows us to do, get right to our musical ideas and although it's new to me I must say I am extremely impressed with the plugins. I'm a very proud new member of the Antelope movement!

By QP on August 18, 2020

I couldn’t be happier with this option, a great interface available for a price which remains relatively low for what it offers: good connectivity, high standard quality and additional plug ins processed at the source. Abtelope’s clocking is on point and latency issues disappeared, on top of that customer service is excellent and helped right away, go for it it won’t let you down pal.

By Roman on August 10, 2020

5 star experience going through vintage king, Whitaker Fineberg is my go to guy, he is incredibly knowledgeable of all pro gear and handles everything with world class professional care! Many thanks!

⭐️ Discrete 4 synergy core is a truly five star product ⭐️

I’ve been on the fence for so long on what interface I wanted to buy.. with not only prior to this deal I was leaning towards antelope. I have to say this deal really helped make up my mind, it’s almost to good to be true!

In every aspect this unit is great, from the dsp technology to the ad/dc conversation it the best in its class!
The plugins for the dsp are incredibly good, I was mind blow after shooting out the warm wa-a2 to the Antelope a2, it makes such smooth sweet sounds. I love it on vocals and guitars!

The edge solo was phenomenal as well and super pleased In everything I can do and also is a great mic to use as its own. I’m looking forwards to doing an a b comparison with my sm7b, wa87, and sm57!

Shoot out coming soon to my YouTube channel @

By Evanrotarymusic on June 16, 2020

This interface sounds great and the driver has been rock solid so far over USB. Really enjoying the mic emulations and the different effects.

I got the $1000 plugin Voucher and that definitely sweetened the deal. Lots of fun.

By Nigel on June 1, 2020

I did a lot of research before purchasing this Interface. I already owned the Edge Solo Mic from Antelope and love it. The best way to explain my experience is to simply say It's Alive. The Monitors I have came to life. The guitar I'm using Came to life, The soft synths are in 3D. The Fx Don't have any Presets which to me is a good thing because it forces me to use My Ears and remember how compressors and EQ's work like real ANALOG Gear rather than just clicking through presets. The Antelope Launcher is streamlined. Customer Service was top notch and was quick to fix a problem for me. Having Both USB and Thunderbolt connections allowed me to use it now and upgrade my computer when FX2DAW is implemented to Windows Machines, with after a discussion with one of the staff on SOcial Media will be coming a lot sooner than I had Anticipated. This Interface will be the Main Hub for all my Gear for years to come and I highly recommend this Interface and Company to everyone.

By roroboat33 on June 1, 2020

Really happy with the interface. The preamps sound great and latency is low over usb.
The built-in effects sound good, and I look forward to trying out different ones.

The mic emulations sound excellent, and that's what I'm most excited about.

By Nigel on May 29, 2020

Discrete 4 Synergy Core is head and shoulders above the rest. I knew I was getting a good audio interface but the sound is incredible and the bundled plug-ins are top notch

By isikyakar on February 2, 2020

Please! Don’t listen to the rumor mill on the purple site or elsewhere on the interwebs and let it dissuade you from giving these products a fair shake! The new DSP+FPGA technology outperforms the outdated and underpowered Sharc technology used by others. Antelope’s mic and effects emulations are fantastic and first class!

As for the hardware, I’m running a Discrete4 Synergy Core on a 2019 MBP Pro 16-inch via TB on Catalina 10.15.2. Best-in-class hardware at its price point! With AA’s latest firmware update, I’ve experienced zero connectivity or other wonky issues.

I think AA has finally found their groove with these latest Synergy Core models, and I’m excited to see what the future brings with this latest tech! Thanks, Antelope! I’m glad I decided to make up my own mind by trying your products.

And, as always, VK consistently offers a honest, quick, reliable and hassle-free online shopping experience; when it comes to pro audio, they’re the first place I turn to do business with!

By Jason on January 30, 2020

Discrete 4 Synergy Core is head and shoulders above the rest. I knew I was getting a good audio interface but the sound is incredible and the bundled plug-ins are top notch. They throw in a modeling mic and autotune as well. No brainer!

By isikyakar on January 26, 2020

I 've been in possession of this sound card for 6 months. It is pleasing that support and updates work very well. So is the map itself. We sometimes rehearse at home and can use it to give everyone a mix in headphones and not make noise. Sound quality at height. Quality of execution and design too! I recommend.

By VetalBassillo on November 9, 2019

Recently purchased the Discrete 4 SC as a companion to my recently purchased Edge Solo mic. So far I'm really enjoying the combo. The effects are fantastic! As are guitar amp models. I love that it has 4 headphone mixes that I can send of to different musicians. Also putting a reverb on the headphone mix is fast and simple. The audio quality and driver stability seems ultra high quality and solid.

By tsolleder on November 8, 2019

The unit itself sounds great! I really like the FX that comes with the interface as they are extremely useful when tracking and mixing. The only downside to this interface has been the launcher and control panel software. I don't like that in order to bus out of Pro Tools I need to also send out of control panel, this does not make sense to me as with any other interface if you send out of the DAW it is automatically routed out of the interfaces outputs. The control panel took some getting used to but other than that the sound is impeccable, the internal clocking is fantastic as I feel like I am hearing clearer and the preamps are transparent and awesome.
