    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 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-analogue dual-channel microphone pre-amplifier, designed to deliver Antelope's signature pristine audio quality and perfectly match the Edge's characteristics.

    The Edge Strip includes:

    Twelve timeless Edge mic emulations - Berlin 47 FT, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T, Berlin M103, Oxford 4038, Vienna 12, Berlin 57, Sacramento 121R, Vienna 414, Berlin 49T and Antelope's own Antelope Edge model.
    Three classic preamp emulations: Antelope V76, Giraffe G9 and BAE 1073 MP.
    Antelope Audio's famous Stay-Levin compressor, and a vintage BAE 1073 EQ also help you sculpt the perfect tone – all for free!

    However, if that's not enough, you can upgrade with dozens of other modelled units featured in Antelope's FPGA FX library. All plug-ins are iLok protected. An iLok is required in order to use them. iLok is not provided by Antelope Audio and must be purchased separately.

    Experience EDGE At Its Maximum Potential
    Using the Discrete MP with the Edge Modeling Microphone unlocks its full potential. Both units utilise discrete analogue circuitry and were designed by Igor Levin himself to complement each other perfectly.

    The two will work with any recording system. Thanks to its dedicated calibration oscillator, Discrete MP is easily adaptable to all studio setups, even those without precise gain linking between two channels. When connecting to a new system, simply engage the built-in oscillator to calibrate the preamp for perfect gain matching.

    Use the Discrete MP's sterling analogue preamps to capture the tone of your favourite mic in crystal-clear detail. Or pair it with the Edge Modeling Microphone and choose your favourite preamp to recreate classic, time-tested studio sounds. Using the free native plug-ins, you can audition countless combinations of microphones, preamps, and vintage outboard gear to get the perfect tone.

    Discrete Analogue Design
    The Edge Strip bundle offers natural analogue sound, combined with the benefits of precise digital control. The USB connection offers a simple way to control the Edge Strip remotely, from your computer.

    The Discrete MP includes two XLR+TRS combo inputs, as well as two TRS outputs. The discrete analogue circuits in the Discrete MP offer up to 61dB of gain. Designing them in-house, Antelope Audio had total control over the coloration, clarity, and character of the preamps.

    Each Edge Modeling Microphone consists of a special double-sided capsule with 10 microns gold-sputtered membranes. This allows Antelope to accomplish multi-dimensional modelling and emulate a variety of different microphones, polar patterns, and even control the proximity effect.

    Special AFX
    The Edge Strip bundle includes custom AFX signal processors, including a growing list of superior microphone emulations that bring field-proven microphone legends into your setup. The programming experts, in co-operation with analogue engineers and mic designers, developed these microphone emulations. Each plug-in uses a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations to accurately model vintage effects with unparalleled detail.

    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. Pick up an Edge Strip today and say goodbye to your bulky vintage gear!
