Antelope Audio Edge Family Modeling Microphones Record through emulations of vintage microphones with Antelope's cutting-edge mic modeling technology.

Antelope Audio Edge Microphones

Compare Antelope's Edge Solo, Edge Duo, and Edge Quadro

If you had the key to a locker full of classic microphones, what would you record? With the Antelope Audio Edge family of large-diaphragm condensers, and vintage mic emulations available both as native plug-in software or FPGA FX running on Antelope's own audio interfaces, you get access to the characteristic sounds of 11 (and counting) of the world's most sought-after microphones.

Dial in your sound with stunningly accurate emulations of your favorite famous mics, audition different mic models, and even change polar patterns after recording -- it's all possible with Antelope mic modeling technology.

All Antelope's modeling mics are top-notch transparent large-diaphragm condensers, delivering exceptional dynamic range and frequency response even before you choose your favorite vintage mic flavor.

Follow our Spotlight guide to compare the Edge family of modeling microphones: the Edge Solo, Edge Duo, and Edge Quadro.

Meet the Edge Solo, Edge Duo, and Edge Quadro modeling microphones in this video from Antelope Audio:

Edge Solo: Everything cardioid...mic modeling made easy

The simplest Edge modeling microphone, the Antelope Edge Solo connects to your audio interface/mic preamp via a standard mono XLR cable. With a fixed-cardioid pickup pattern, the Edge Solo works hand-in-hand with Antelope's mic modeling plug-in to emulate a locker full of the greatest cardioid-pattern mics in history.

Straightforward and easy to master, the Edge Solo is the most affordable member of Antelope's Edge family of large-diaphragm condenser modeling mics. If you're new to the world of microphone modeling, the Edge Solo is an excellent first step.

Edge Duo: Dual membranes for multi-dimensional modeling

Get creative in the studio with Antelope's Edge Duo. This large-diaphragm condenser comes with a breakout Y-cable with two independent 3-pin XLR outputs, capturing the signal from the front and back of the Edge Duo's dual-membrane capsule. Connect both XLR cables to your audio interface's preamps, and you'll be able to individually process the signals -- so you can you vary the mic's polar pattern within the plug-in, even after recording.

With switchable patterns (cardioid, figure-8, omni, and everything in between), the Edge Duo can accurately model the characteristic on- and off-axis response for each of the 11 included mic emulations. Capture a "dry" signal and apply mic emulations later -- with the Edge Duo, you have full control over polar pattern, proximity effect, and off-axis response during or after recording.

Edge Quadro: Beyond stereo...advanced 360-degree recording

Antelope's most advanced modeling microphone, the Edge Quadro features two dual-membrane capsules, vertically stacking two symmetrical Edge Duo capsules with an infinitely rotatable head on top -- allowing for stereo techniques like middle/side, X/Y, Blumlein, and beyond. Emulate a stereo pair of vintage mics, or emulate a different microphone on each head -- the Edge Quadro gives you maximum flexibility.

A quadrosonic mic, the Edge Quadro includes two breakout Y-cables and delivers four discrete XLR channels for independent recording and processing -- meaning you have nearly endless control over your sound. Your Edge Quadro comes with a custom shock mount and a handmade wooden case.

Run Antelope mic emulations as native plug-ins or FPGA FX

Plug your Edge microphone into one of Antelope Audio's own interfaces -- the Discrete 4, Discrete 8, Orion Studio Rev 2017, Goliath, Goliath HD, or Zen Tour -- and take advantage of the interface's on-board processing to power Antelope's FPGA-based vintage microphone emulations in real time.

You can also use Edge microphones with any non-Antelope audio interface of your choice. Antelope's native software emulations run as a VST, AU, or AAX plug-in in your DAW, on a Mac or Windows PC with a USB 2.0 port and an iLok to authorize, activate and run the software.
