Antelope Audio Edge Solo
MPN #Edge Solo
Single capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone for Antelope's vintage mic emulations
The Edge Solo is a large diaphragm condenser microphone, with a cardioid pickup pattern, that delivers clean and natural recordings with any interface or preamp. The microphone is designed for the artist/engineer who needs one solution for numerous situations and applications. In addition to the high-performance hardware, Antelope Audio has developed a proprietary Modeling Engine that adds advanced tone-shaping to the microphone's own pristine sound. The 18 different mic emulations make this a highly adaptive and effective recording tool - suitable for home- and professional-studio recordings of vocals, acoustic instruments, guitar & bass cabs, as well as drums & percussion.
. Large-diaphragm condenser microphone delivering high-resolution audio
. 18 classic mic emulations with stunning tone-shaping abilities
. Cardioid pickup pattern
. User-friendly software allowing for speed & efficiency
A Mic That Stands on Its Own
The Edge Solo features a low self-noise, high SPL and a 6-micron gold-sputtered diaphragm. Combined with the low-resonance body and low-reflection head basket, the capsule powers a high-performance microphone capable of delivering ultra-fast transients, flat frequency response, and exceptional dynamic range for clean and natural-sounding recordings.
A Plethora of Tone-Shaping Emulations
In addition to its own pristine sound, the Edge Solo has the ability to mimic 18 of the most popular mics - from dynamic classics to rare Tube & FET large-diaphragm condensers that have stood the test of time. To develop the emulations, Antelope Audio has worked with several revered European facilities, making rigorous measurements and testing multiple exquisitely preserved vintage microphones, as well as modern high-end classics. The 18 emulations provide the necessary sonic versatility needed to suit any voice or instrument both at home and in the studio.
A New Vision for the Recording Experience
The purpose of the Edge Solo and all other modeling microphones in Antelope Audio's portfolio is to not only equip you with a variety of sonically versatile emulations in one body but to also expand your scope of recording abilities with features not available with conventional microphones. Antelope Audio's modeling concept enhances your workflow by allowing you to switch between microphone emulations with a single click during recording or post-production. When paired with an Antelope Audio interface you can benefit from imperceptible latency while picking the best mic emulation for the job during tracking. If you prefer, record without any modeling, and alter the sound later with the native emulation plugins* - compatible with any DAW or interface.

Didn't know what Great mics sounds like until I get a hold of this Antelope Edge Solo, this thing is Amazing, the best mic emulation available right now, earlier I was thinking of buying an TLM 103 but base on doing a bunch of research I came across this great piece of gear and just like I didnt , Read more
I know you won't be disappointed, ever since I get this microphone I put up my other mics and they are great mics I use over the years, but just to show you how great this mic emulation is.
