Edge modeling microphone
Discrete 4 meets Edge..
Inside the Discrete 4 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance. Record the dry signal and apply mic emulations later, experimenting freely and creatively. Mic emulations are also available in native plug-in format (VST, AU, AAX) for Windows and Mac.
Vintage Mic Emulations for Edge Microphone coming with this bundle:
Berlin 47, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T.
Coming soon: Berlin M103, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Oxford 4038, Sacramento 121R, Vienna 414, Berlin 49T.
Edge was designed to match the unit’s discrete preamp architecture. It is a large-diaphragm condenser modeling microphone suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, this new modeling microphone will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Antelope founder Igor Levin designed groundbreaking fully discrete electronics. Hand-selected capsules were chosen and encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape designed for optimal sonic performance. Edge is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.
