Antelope Audio Edge Strip Mic Preamp and Edge Mic Bundle

Antelope Audio Edge Strip Mic Preamp and Edge Mic Bundle

The Antelope Discrete MP is a dual input ultra-linear microphone preamplifier designed by Antelope Audio specially for the Edge modeling microphone.

Introducing the new Edge Strip — an all-in-one solution for high-quality studio recordings with vintage analogue sound.

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 well-known 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-analogue dual-channel microphone pre-amplifier, designed to deliver Antelope’s signature pristine audio quality.

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.

Discrete Analogue Design

The Antelope Audio Edge Strip bundle offers natural analogue sound, combined with the benefits of accurate digital control.

The Antelope Discrete MP comes with two XLR+TRS combo inputs, as well as two TRS outputs. The discrete analogue circuits in the Discrete MP offer up to 61dB of maximum gain, and total control over the colouration, clarity, and character of the preamps.

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 3 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.

Special AFX

The Edge Strip bundle includes Antelope Audio’s custom AFX signal processors, including a growing list of superior microphone emulations, bringing field-proven microphone legends into your setup. The AFX experts, in cooperation with analogue engineers and mic designers, developed these microphone emulations.

The Edge Strip includes 4 vintage mic emulations, 3 classic German preamp emulations, Antelope’s famous Stay-Levin compressor, and a vintage EQ to help you sculpt the perfect tone – all for free!

PLEASE NOTE: All plug-ins are iLok protected. An iLok is required in order to use them. iLok is not provided by Antelope Audio and must be purchased separately.
