4x8, Bus-Powered USB-C, 1 FPGA and 2 DSP processors
The Edge Duo is a multi-pattern large dual-diaphragm condenser microphone, capable of 3-dimensional high-resolution sound recordings. This innovative device can transform its behavior, color, frequency and transient response into 18 different iconic microphones that are still used in some of the most sophisticated recording studios. Thanks to its dual-diaphragm design and unique Modeling Engine, the Edge Duo allows for real-time polar pattern alterations during recording and mixing.
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
Gold-plated double-membrane capsule - This single capsule condenser mic features a 6-micron gold-sputtered dual-membrane for true multi-dimensional mic modeling. Edge Duo’s dual-membrane capsule design feeds two separate XLR output channels (via the included Y-cable) allowing it to accurately emulate the characteristic on- and off-axis response of each mic
Switchable polar pattern - The polar pattern is switchable between omnidirectional, cardioid, figure eight and all intermediate levels
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 Duo is perfect for capturing any sound source with an impressive dynamic range of -116 dB THD+N
Included 5 m XLR cable, elastic shockmount with pop filter, and microphone carry case - The software requires iLok USB Dongle (not included) when using the mic emulations as Native effects. The Edge Duo 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
Redefine Your Tone with Professional Studio Quality
Even before loading any emulations, the Edge Duo effortlessly delivers an intimately detailed presence that will push any track to the front of your mix.
The capsule is fitted with two of our signature 6-micron gold-sputtered membranes and the body is equipped with custom electronics for truly unparalleled sound performance and flexibility.
Embrace the Future of Recording
What makes the Edge Duo such a unique recording tool is the Modeling Engine - a futuristic technology that brings a selection of timeless classics to your studio.
The accuracy of our mic emulations keeps the frequency response and color of the originals in a complete 360° coverage. The dual-diaphragm design of the Edge Duo is what allows you to adjust the polar patterns of the emulations directly from the software in real-time.
Benefit from Broad Application and Compatibility
The Edge Duo is an all-purpose tool for studio professionals looking to record a variety of sources. It works with any preamp with 48V phantom power and its variable polar pickup pattern is ideal for room miking drums, recording backing vocals and any acoustic performance.
Although it works with any preamp, the modeling microphone excels when paired with our Synergy Core interfaces' Discrete preamps.
