Discrete 8 microphone preamp interface
Antelope Audio's Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock-solid clocking.
Both the Discrete 4 and the Discrete 8 come with DC coupled analogue line outputs to be used at CV (control voltage) interfaces. Primarily for recording with and taking full advantage of analogue synths.
Discrete 8 features all the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.
The Antelope AFX platform is a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which will soon be accessible in any DAW via the upcoming AFX2DAW Plugin.
The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience:

Antelope Modeling Microphone
Discrete 8 meets Edge Solo and Verge
Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ's, these modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting-edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Edge Solo & Verge are two of Antelope Audio's powerful modeling microphones that combine outstanding modeling potential with fast and user-friendly workflow. Bundled with the Discrete 8 Mic Preamp Interface they make for a perfect and versatile recording setup. The bundle gives users access to an exquisite collection of vintage mic emulations and authentic FX models of legendary studio gear.
Edge Solo is a single capsule mic by Antelope Audio, specifically designed to recreate the true sound of a multitude of vintage cardioid-pattern microphones. For maximum accuracy
Edge Solo can be used with any of Antelope Audio's mic preamp-equipped interfaces, whose built-in FPGA processing capabilities allow real-time vintage mic emulation.
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
