Antelope Audio Unveils New Edge Family of Modeling Microphones


Antelope Audio has unveiled the next evolution of their mic modeling technology. The new Edge Family consists of three large-diaphragm condensers — the fixed cardioid pattern Edge Solo, the multi-pattern Edge Duo, and the dual-capsule Edge Quadro.

The new Edge mics deliver the characteristic sound of some of the most sought-after mics of all time with depth and realism. Developed specifically for each mic, the emulations are based on exacting measurements of the original mics made in one of the best anechoic chambers in Europe.

Antelope Audio founder Igor Levin comments: “We are constantly looking to innovate and deliver greater value to our users. With the Edge Family, we’ve grown our mic modeling ecosystem into a complete recording solution. We set out to deliver not just the best modeling mics available but the best microphones in the industry, period.”

Exclusively built at Antelope’s European headquarters and featuring electronics designed by Igor Levin himself, the Edge Family offers even frequency response and wide dynamic range. Their transparent, accurate response provides the perfect platform for Antelope’s mic emulations.

Edge Solo is the simplest of the three new mics. Connecting via a regular mono XLR cable, it houses a single large-diaphragm capsule with a fixed cardioid pickup pattern. It’s specifically designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope’s mic modeling plugins to emulate some of the greatest cardioid- pattern mics in history.

Edge Duo features a dual-membrane capsule with independent outputs, allowing the signal from each membrane to be individually processed and recombined. This not only means users can vary the polar pattern from within the plugin, even after recording, it also allows the Edge Duo to accurately emulate the characteristic pickup pattern and on- and off-axis response of each mic for true multi-dimensional mic modeling.

Edge Quadro is a stereo/surround mic with two dual-membrane capsules and a rotating head. Delivering four channels for independent processing will allow for stereo techniques like M/S, X/Y, Blumlein, and even 3D sound. Users can select a different emulation and polar pattern for each head. The upper head can be rotated noiselessly even while the microphone is actively recording, delivering virtually limitless variations in tonality and stereo image.
