The Antelope Audio Edge Strip is a compact package delivering the same audio quality as a locker full of vintage mics and a rack full of outboard gear. The days of spending tens of thousands of dollars on a vintage mic collection are over. Most engineers only ever dream of using such expensive microphones. The Edge Strip makes that dream a reality. Now you can add high-end studio equipment to your collection for a fraction of the price.The Edge Strip is designed to model a variety of vintage microphones, preamps, and even signal processors such as EQs and compressors. It contains Antelope Audios renowned Edge Modeling Microphone a dual-capsule condenser large-diaphragm microphone, specifically designed to reproduce the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. It also includes the Discrete MP an all-analog dual-channel microphone pre-amplifier, designed to deliver Antelopes signature pristine audio quality. Edge Strip owners also enjoy a package of free native effects plug-ins, including a compressor designed by Antelope Audios founder Igor Levin the Stay Levin.
The Edge Strip bundle offers natural analog sound, combined with the benefits of precise digital control. The Discrete MP includes two XLR+TRS combo inputs, as well as two TRS outputs.
The discrete analog circuits in the Discrete MP offer up to 61 dB of maximum gain, and total control over the coloration, clarity, and character of the preamps. Meanwhile, the USB connection offers a simple way to control the Edge Strip remotely, from the comfort of your computer. Each Edge Modeling Microphone consists of a special double-sided capsule with 3 microns gold sputtered membranes.
This allows us to accomplish multi-dimensional modeling and emulate a variety of different microphones, polar patterns and even control the proximity effect. Experience EDGE at its maximum. Antelope Audios engineering team designed the Discrete MP to perfectly match the character of the Edge Modeling Microphone. Both Discrete MP and Edge Modeling Microphone are fully analog, which means theyll work with any system. Thanks to its dedicated calibration oscillator, Discrete MP is easily adaptable to all studio setups, even those without precise gain linking between two channels.When connecting to a new system, simply engage the built-in oscillator to calibrate the Discrete MP for perfect gain staging. Pristine sound under the hood. Use the Discrete MP to capture the tone of your favorite mic in crystal clear detail. Or, pair the Edge Modeling Microphone with your favorite preamp to create unique sounds. However, using the Discrete MP with the Edge Modeling Microphone unlocks its full potential.
Both units utilize discrete analog circuitry and were designed by Igor Levin himself to complement each other perfectly. By using the free native plug-ins, you can audition countless combinations of microphones, preamps, and vintage outboard gear to get the perfect tone. The Edge Strip bundle includes the custom AFX signal processors, which includes a growing list of superior microphone emulations, bringing field-proven microphone legends into your setup. The AFX experts, in cooperation with analog engineers and mic designers, developed these microphone emulations. The Edge Strip includes 4 vintage mic emulations, 3 classic German preamp emulations, the famous Stay-Levin compressor, and a vintage EQ to help you sculpt the perfect tone all for free!However, if thats not enough, you can upgrade with dozens of other modeled units featured in Antelope's FPGA FX library. Bring your recordings to life using the remarkable sounds of vintage gear. Hear the past and record the future with Antelopes native DSP effects. Each plug-in uses a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations to accurately model vintage effects with unparalleled detail. Even when emulating microphones, preamps, and signal processors, you can breathe easy, knowing the Edge Strip offers minimal latency, and Antelope Audios signature sound.
