Antelope Edge Strip Microphone Modeling Bundle
The Antelope Edge Strip Microphone Modeling Bundle 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 Duo 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.
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<br>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.

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.
