  • Antelope Audio Edge Quadro Modelling Microphone

    Dual-head, modelling microphone perfect for 360 stage recording.

    Main Features

    • The only dual-head, quadrasonic, multi-pattern, modeling microphone, featuring a collection of vintage mic emulations
    • Unlimited tonal variations, stereo imaging and wide range of creative effects
    • Stereo mic featuring two large double-membrane condenser capsules and a rotatable head that can be rotated noiselessly and easily even while the microphone is actively recording
    • Both heads can function in all possible polar patterns (cardioid, Figure-8 and omni-directional)
    • X/Y, Mid-Side, and Blumlein stereo recording techniques
    • Smart control panel allowing users to pick two different microphone emulations simultaneously, one for each head of the microphone
    • Compatible with third-party interfaces via native AFX plug-ins in VST, AU and AAX formats (Ilok 2 Or 3 required. Not included in the package)

    Edge Quadro is the most advanced modelling microphone by Antelope Audio. This stereo mic features two large dual-membrane condenser capsules and a rotatable head. Delivering four channels for independent processing will allow for stereo techniques like M/S, X/Y, Blumlein, and even 3D sound. Edge Quadro is the only microphone you'll need for stereo and 360 deg sound recording.

    An Epic Mic Emulation Library
    Edge Quadro boasts an extensive and ever-expanding library of classic mic emulations, with 11 legendary microphone models already available and 7 more soon to be released. The smart control panel allows users to pick two different mic emulations simultaneously, one for each head of the microphone. Find the full list of Edge Quadro emulations below.

    Experiment Like Never Before
    The Edge Quadro heads offer next-level precision and adjustability. The upper head can be rotated noiselessly, at any angle, even while the microphone is actively recording. Each Quadro head can also function in all possible polar patterns (cardioid, figure-8, omnidirectional and anything in between). These features combine to deliver virtually limitless variations in tonality and stereo images and enable a wide range of creative effects.

    The Slickest Of Them All
    Edge Quadro not only sounds incredible – it looks great, too! This unique mic comes with a custom luxury shock mount and two oxygen-free copper Y-cables included in the package. The microphone is housed in a custom, handmade, wooden case, offering additional protection to its already solid and durable body.

    High Compatibility
    The Edge emulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope's own precision mic preamps and converters. For maximum accuracy, Edge Quadro can be used with any of Antelope Audio's mic preamp-equipped interfaces, whose built-in FPGA processing capabilities allow real-time vintage mic emulation.

    However, Edge Quadro also includes Antelope's native mic emulation plug-ins, meaning you can use any third-party audio interface and even change modelling settings after recording. Available in VST, AU and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope's native AFX plug-ins provide everything we've come to expect from their industry-leading FPGA FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations.
