Antelope Edge Strip Microphone Modeling Bundle
The Antelope Edge Strip Microphone Modeling Bundle is 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 Edge Strip is designed to model a variety of vintage microphones, preamps, and even signal processors such as EQs and compressors.
It contains Antelope Audios renowned Edge Modeling Microphone a dual-capsule condenser large-diaphragm microphone, specifically designed to reproduce the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones and the Discrete MP an all-analog dual-channel microphone pre-amplifier, designed to deliver Antelopes signature pristine audio quality.
Edge Strip owners also enjoy a package of free native effects plug-ins, including a compressor designed by Antelope Audios 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 Audios 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 theyll 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 its 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 thats not enough, you can upgrade with dozens of other modeled units featured in our FPGA FX library.

I've done live records with this and a laptop. I've stuffed it in my backpack and gone to other provinces and made records with it. The pres are neutral, clear and quiet. Having the digitally controlled mic amps is a god send for recalling gain structures, having 12 mic pres allows me do so much more than the usual 8. Very good buy.
Normally, swapping in a preamp/clock/converter buys a subtle improvement over prosumer gear, starting at about $1K/channel, but in upgrading all 3 with Antelope's Zen Studio, I'm thrilled at the improvement in my tracks/ability to hear them. The focus, clarity and detail is stunning. Then, consider that the Zen has 12 preamps and up to 24 simultaneous channels; at $100/channel, it may seem foolish to buy anything else, but there are caveats. You can't rackmount it without a kit, taking up TWO rackspaces, cuz the unit runs hot, and some features are frustratingly difficult to access-a digital mixer with compression, EQ and reverb, which SO far can only be controlled with...a mouse. There is also no manual; just a quick start guide on the website and mention of a DAW plugin that will allow access to the goodies from within your DAW, at some point. There is also no provision for a control surface; a shame, cuz the unit itself provides a total of three buttons and one knob.
