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 Audio’s 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 Antelope’s signature pristine audio quality.
Edge Strip owners also enjoy a package of free native effects plug-ins, including a compressor designed by Antelope Audio’s 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.
