Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphone
Edge is a modeling microphone by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ's, this modeling microphone comprises a true cutting-edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Edge is an exquisite large-diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns. Antelope Audio designed groundbreaking, fully discrete electronics and chose hand-selected capsules, encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape for optimal sonic performance.
Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth and natural sound and accurate reproduction of expensive classic microphones' expressiveness and character. The mic's dual edge-terminated capsules dispense with center-diaphragm termination mounts, letting the entire diaphragm vibrate freely without interfering with the sound waves. The result is a smooth and natural sound character, ideally suited to take on the personality of costly classic microphones -- without the maintenance and expense.
The true voices of vintage microphones
Inside the FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine, you can transform Edge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response, and 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 after, experimenting freely and creatively.
Mic emulations are also available in native plug-in format (VST, AU, AAX) for all major DAWs on Windows and Mac.

Berlin 47 FT
will allow you to finally enjoy the authentic sound of one of the most popular microphones in history of audio recording. This emulation perfectly combines the wide dynamic range and meticulous attention to detail of the hardware original. It's perfect for capturing vocals, acoustic instruments and even aggressive sound sources like kick drums.
-- This microphone is the way to go when recording piano, vocals, overheads, guitars, strings, brass section, percussion. Honestly, there's almost nothing that Berlin 87 can't handle. We're bringing this 1970s classic straight from the good old times to your 21st century studio. No pro can live without an 87 so it was high time you got yours!
carries the true sound of an iconic tube condenser microphone with multiple polar patterns. This German legend can record in omni, cardiod or figure eight. Its popularity is due to its signature sound and flexibility. Berlin 67 is powerful multi-purpose mic that is a must-have for any studio.
-- Wondering what lies behind the silky and smooth vocals on your favorite records? Chances are high that it's exactly the Japanese microphone legend we modeled our Tokyo 800T after. This vintage tube mic is a top choice for all masters of vocals recordings. With a super low noise-floor and extreme sensitivity, it's also a great fit for recording acoustic guitar sessions.
Vintage Mic Emulations Coming Soon:
-- Another German studio legend is now available in the FPGA domain. Berlin M103 has been modeled after an iconic large-diaphragm condenser mic with a Berlin 87 style-capsule and transformer-less circuitry. This cardiod microphone is signature for its low noise-floor and wide dynamic range. Berlin M103 is praised not only by music engineers specialized in classical music, but also sound designers and Foley artists from the top tiers of the movie industry.
comes straight from 1957 and it sounds as great as you can expect. The mic owes its specific sound to a large-diaphragm capsule with a PVC membrane and a triode tube. Users can switch between omni, cardiod and figure of eight polar patterns. Just hear how this one captures vocals and you'll fall in love with it.
-- A classic large diaphragm condenser and a highly sought after tube microphone. Vienna 12 is modelled after the latest revision of the original. Which means – low noise, wide frequency response (from 30 Hz to 20 kHz) and switchable polar patterns. Those include cardioid, figure eight and omni.
-- Before becoming a preferred tool for professional recording engineers, this bi-directional ribbon microphone was widely popular in broadcasting studios all around the UK. The reasons? Its ability to capture sound with a smooth and wide frequency response, its high sensitivity and lack of transient distortion. The resulting sound? Natural and clear, fitting both voice and delicate acoustic instruments. No wonder it's highly sought after and still used to this very day.
-- This mic is modeled after the first commercially available vacuum tube ribbon mic. It offers natural and pure sound plus extended dynamic range, which is actually even higher than its predecessor models.
is a flexible multi-pattern condenser microphone. The original, which inspired our emulation, has been used in top recording facilities, broadcast studios and performance venues all around the globe. It allows users to switch between whole nine polar patterns and offers unique dynamic range, frequency response and spatial detailing. It's perfect for lead vocals and solo instruments but also as a room mic for drum recordings or classical music sessions.
-- The original behind Berlin 49T was a revolution on its own for its unique two cardioid condenser systems architecture. This would mean nothing if the resulting sound didn't feature next level smoothness with strong low-end and more than convincing highs. You'll find this one on all your favorite 1950s and 1960s pop, soul and jazz recordings. It's highly suitable for vocals but its great bass response makes it perfect for drums and brass as well.
