The Edge Strip is designed to model a variety of vintage microphones, preamps, and even signal processors such as EQs and compressors.
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.
Edge Strip owners also enjoy a package of free native effects plug-ins, including a compressor designed by Antelope Audio's founder Igor Levin - the Stay Levin.
The Edge Strip bundle offers rock-solid analog reliability, mixed with the benefits of digital audio. The Discrete MP includes two XLR+TRS combo inputs, as well as two TRS outputs for additional routing and signal processing. The discrete preamp design offers up to 61dB of maximum gain, and total control over the coloration, clarity, and character of the performance.
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 2-3 microns gold sputtered membranes. This allows us to accomplish multi-dimensional modeling, and emulate a variety of different microphones, polar patterns, and even mic placements.
Experience EDGE at its maximum
Antelope Audio's 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 they'll work with any system. Thanks to its dedicated calibration oscillator, Discrete MP is easily adaptable to all studio setups.
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.
But, using the Discrete MP with the Edge Modeling Microphone unlocks it's full potential. 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 our custom AFX signal processors, including a growing list of superior microphone emulations, bringing field-proven microphone legends into your setup. These microphone emulations are developed in cooperation with a range of experts and come in native formats, designed for a lightning fast workflow.
The Edge Strip includes 4 vintage mic emulations, 3 classic German preamp emulations, our famous Stay-Levin compressor, and a vintage EQ to help you sculpt the perfect tone - all for free! But if that's not enough, you can upgrade with dozens of other modeled units featured in our FPGA FX library.
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!"
