The Edge Strip is a discrete dual ultra-linear microphone preamp & Edge modeling mic
Introducing the new Edge Strip - an all-in-one solution for high-quality studio recordings with vintage analog sound. This compact package delivers 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 these expensive, rare 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 Audio's 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 Antelope's signature pristine audio quality and perfectly match the Edge's characteristics.
As a final touch, the Fusion AFX Pack includes 4 vintage mic emulations (Berlin 47, 67, 87, Tokyo 800T), 3 classic preamp emulations (Antelope V76, Gyratec G9, BAE 1073 MP), our famous Stay-Levin compressor, and the warm, musical BAE 1073 EQ to help you sculpt the perfect tone - all for free, and compatible with any DAW for Windows and Mac.
Experience EDGE At Its Maximum Potential
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.
The two will work with any recording 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 preamp for perfect gain matching.
Use the Discrete MP's sterling analog preamps to capture the tone of your favorite mic in crystal-clear detail. Or pair it with the Edge Modeling Microphone and choose your favorite preamp to recreate classic, time-tested studio sounds. Using the free native plug-ins, you can audition countless combinations of microphones, preamps, and vintage outboard gear to get the perfect tone.
Discrete Analog Design
The Edge Strip bundle offers natural analog sound, combined with the benefits of precise digital control. The USB connection offers a simple way to control the Edge Strip remotely, from your computer.
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 61dB of gain. Designing them in-house, Antelope Audio had total control over the coloration, clarity, and character of the preamps.
Each Edge Modeling Microphone consists of a special double-sided capsule with 10 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.
The Edge Strip bundle includes our custom AFX signal processors, including a growing list of superior microphone emulations that bring field-proven microphone legends into your setup. The programming experts, in cooperation with analog engineers and mic designers, developed these microphone emulations. 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 Audio's signature sound. Pick up an Edge Strip today and say goodbye to your bulky vintage gear!
