Antelope Modeling Microphones: Edge Duo and Verge

Edge Duo and Verge are modeling microphones by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. This bundle includes one Edge Duo large-diaphragm modeling mic, and 6 Verge small-diaphragm modeling mics. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQs, these modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting-edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.

Get a closer look at the Edge Duo microphone in this video from Antelope Audio:


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 for optimal sonic performance. Edge Duo is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.

Verge is a small-diaphragm modeling microphone suited for both nuanced accuracy and high SPL recording. Also exhibiting excellent performance on its own, it can take on the character and personality of the world's best small diaphragm condensers and electrets.

Get a closer look at the Verge microphone in this video from Antelope Audio:


Plug the Edge Duo and Verge microphones into the Discrete 8 interface, and Antelope's FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine will transform your modeling mics 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.

Vintage Mic Emulations Included With This Bundle:

Vintage Mic Emulations for Edge Duo Microphone: Berlin 47, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T. Coming soon: Berlin M103, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Oxford 4038, Sacramento 121R, Vienna 414, Berlin 49T.

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds is great! After looking for Pro DJ speakers I came across zZounds on the internet and they financed me with the no credit check money down 4 month payment plan, which really helped me out a lot. They are the greatest to buy audio equipment online. They have low prices that are compatible with other online sites and didn’t charge me interest. I highly recommend them. I will be doing all my online audio purchases with them from here on out." - Customer on November 30, 2018

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as you Pay® installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as you Pay® plans.
