4x8, Bus-Powered USB-C, 1 FPGA and 2 DSP processors
An Entire Microphone Collection in One Device
The Edge Solo is a large diaphragm condenser microphone, with a cardioid pickup pattern, that delivers clean and natural recordings with any interface or preamp. The microphone is designed for the artist/engineer who needs one solution for numerous situations and applications.
In addition to the high-performance hardware, Antelope Audio has developed a proprietary Modeling Engine that adds advanced tone-shaping to the microphone's own pristine sound.
The 18 different mic emulations make this a highly adaptive and effective recording tool - suitable for home - and professional-studio recordings of vocals, acoustic instruments, guitar & bass cabs, as well as drums & percussion.
18 classic mic emulations with stunning tone-shaping abilities
Cardioid pickup pattern
User-friendly software allowing for speed & efficiency
Includes 18 real-time modelling mic emulations - Developed through exact analysis of the original models, measured in one of the best anechoic chambers in Europe, the Edge emulations deliver all the character and expressiveness heard on countless hit records
Cardioid polar pattern - The Edge Solo modeling microphone features a fixed cardioid pickup pattern, making it incredibly easy to use--just point it at the sound source, choose one of the emulations and start tracking
Low-noise and low-distortion circuit design - Outfitted with custom electronics, Edge Solo is capable of capturing sounds with pinpoint precision. This single-capsule condenser mic features a single 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane to provide superior transient response
Neutral frequency response, impressive DNR - The low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket produce hyper-accurate recordings with a neutral frequency response from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. The Edge Solo is perfect for capturing any sound source with an impressive dynamic range of -116 dB THD+N
Included microphone carry case and tripod holder - The software requires iLok USB Dongle (not included) when using the mic emulations as Native effects. The Edge Solo requires 48 V phantom power and works with every preamp. For best results we recommend Antelope Audio interfaces with custom-made Discrete preamps that match the exact frequency response of the mic and compliment the mic modeling technology
