EDGE DUO Modeling Microphone

The Antelope Audio Edge Duo Modeling Microphone is a dual-membrane large-diaphragm condenser microphone capable of emulating legendary vintage microphones with unprecedented accuracy. This versatile modeling microphone features two separate XLR output channels for emulating the on- and off-axis response of over a dozen microphones in real time.

Outfitted with custom electronics designed by Antelope’s award-winning engineers, Edge Duo delivers an incredibly smooth, rich and organic response. This single capsule condenser mic features a 6-micron gold-sputtered dual-membrane for true multi-dimensional mic modeling. The low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket produce hyper-accurate recordings with a neutral frequency response from 20 Hz - 20 kHz. Edge Duo 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 Duo lies in its ability to emulate more colorful mics.

MILLION DOLLAR MIC LOCKER

Edge Duo is specifically designed to be the perfect companion to Antelope Audio’s precision mic preamps and converters. When paired together with Antelope’s native mic emulation plug-ins, the possibilities are endless. Available in VST, AU and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope’s native AFX plug-ins allow you to shoot out some of the world’s most renowned studio microphones in real-time or even after recording. Choose between the following hyper-accurate emulations modeled from an exquisitely preserved collection of classic microphones in one of the most respected facilities in Germany.

iLok 2 or 3 required. Not included in the pack.

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.

First let me start by saying I love this unit. As a producer it gives me great flexibility and all the ins and outs I need. The sound quality is top notch. I sole my Universal X16 to purchase this unit. There are several things that Antelope NAILED on this unit and in my opinion, a few misses (most likely due to technical constraints). Lets started with the nailed. The combo inputs allows me to plug my keyboards right into the unit without the need for an expensive DB25 cable! The db25 outputs allow me to go right into my summing mixer nice and neat!! I LOVE that. Initially I had an issue with the user interface, but then I realized what antelope was attempting to do was emulate how an engineer would PATCH analog hardware in the real world. This is the reason for the colors and all that. In the real world you have patch bays that are labeled with different colors etc. Once I grasped that concept, I was good to go. I love the ability to be able to route any in to any out, BUT I do have an issue with IF I route an analog in to an analog out, the signals will pass thru the converters. I understand that this is the only way to utilize the FGPA plug-ins, BUT I would like the option to go analog to analog bypassing all digital stages. I love the insert jacks on the back of the unit for front inputs 1&2, HOWEVER you cannot use the inserts and mic emulations on input 1&2. that would be nice but that a small issue. A workaround is simple to jus use the AFX2DAW after the vocal is down which is probably a better method anyway. The sound of the unit and the plug ins can't be touched . I feel this unit is far better than anything Universal Audio has and it feels more professional. Antelope tech support are amazing and always willing to help. So far I have a 10M atomic clock (worth every single penny) Pure 2, Edge Duo and the Orion Studio Synergy. Soon I will be investing in the Amari.
