EDGE SOLO MODELING MIC (INCLUDED FREE)

The Antelope Audio Edge Solo Modeling Microphone is a single-capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone capable of emulating some of the most iconic vintage microphones in the world with unparalleled accuracy. This powerful modeling microphone features a fixed cardioid pickup pattern, making it incredibly easy to use — just point it at the sound source, choose one of the emulations and start tracking.

Outfitted with custom electronics designed by Antelope’s award-winning engineers, Edge Solo is capable of capturing sounds with pinpoint precision. This single-capsule condenser mic features a single 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane to provide superior transient response. The low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket produce hyper-accurate recordings with a neutral frequency response from 20 Hz - 20 kHz. Edge Solo is perfect for capturing any sound source—with an impressive dynamic range of -116 dB THD+N. But nobody buys a pack of crayons for the beige one—the real charm of the Edge Solo lies in its ability to emulate more colorful mics.

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.

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.

Pros:
- Superb audio and dynamics
- Number of connections
- The plugins!
- AFX2DAW
- 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

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 @

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!

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
