Antelope Discrete 4 with Edge Duo BundleThis Antelope Audio bundle includes the Discrete 4 audio interface, Edge Duo large-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone with Mic Emulations Bundle, and Antelope's PremiumFX pack.
The Discrete 4 Microphone Preamp InterfaceAntelope Audio's Discrete 4 mic preamp/interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 4 console-grade, 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 dB dynamic range conversion, and rock-solid clocking. Discrete 4 features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.
Discrete 4 is a 14-in and 20-out interface featuring 4 analog ins, 4 analog line outs, stereo monitor outs, 4 headphone outs and 2 ReAmps. Additional digital connectivity comes on S/PDIF and 2 ADATs.
The Antelope AFX platform is based on a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 4 includes Accusonic microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear.

The Edge Duo Modeling MicrophoneThe Antelope Edge Duo is a large-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling, and designed to match the Discrete 4's preamp architecture. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQs, this modeling microphone will comprise a true cutting-edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Edge Duo features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Antelope founder Igor Levin designed groundbreaking fully discrete electronics. Hand-selected capsules were chosen and encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape designed for optimal sonic performance. Edge Duo is an exquisite large-diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.
Plug the Edge Duo microphone into the Discrete 4 interface, and Antelope's FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine will transform the mic into vintage replicas -- giving you complete control over proximity effect and off-axis response, and even allowing you to change polar patterns during or after recording.
Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones, and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician's best possible performance. Record the dry signal and apply mic emulations later, experimenting freely and creatively. Mic emulations are also available in native plug-in format (VST, AU, AAX) for Windows and Mac.
Vintage Mic Emulations Included:Bundle includes: Berlin 47, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T.
Coming soon: Berlin M103, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Oxford 4038, Sacramento 121R, Vienna 414, Berlin 49T.
Premium FX PackThe Premium FX pack that comes with this bundle allows you to employ the full studio power of the Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. The collection features authentic models of iconic studio units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, LANG and FET.
The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack allows you to use 4 channel strips with 4 FX instances each and up to 16 channel strips using the new AFX2DAW plug-in. The Premium FX library features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX, including Vintage EQs, Compressors, AuraVerb, Guitar Amps & Cabinet models.
Mic & preamp emulations are also available in native plug-in format (VST, AU, AAX) for Windows and Mac. They are authorized with an iLok version 2 or 3 USB dongle (sold separately). If you don't have an iLok code, contact Antelope Audio technical support.
The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack will be distributed on a license basis through activation code. The code for Premium activation should be printed and included it in the packaging of the purchased device or sent via e-mail by your preferred Dealer. Please be aware that after being activated once the code can't be de-activated and activated on another Discrete device.
