    Edge Solo is a high-quality single-capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone by Antelope Audio. Combined with Antelope's cutting-edge modelling technology, it allows users to emulate 18 of the world's most iconic vintage microphones with uncanny accuracy. The Edge Solo features modelling that was performed in one of the most respected facilities in Germany using an exquisitely preserved collection of classic microphones. Find the full list of Edge Solo emulations below.

    High-Performance Custom Design
    Edge Solo was specifically designed as the perfect source to model any vintage cardioid-pattern microphone. Antelope's Edge microphones are in a class of their own thanks to extensive testing and a design philosophy that ensures an accurate yet natural sounding result.

    Designed and built in Europe, Edge Solo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane, low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket. Edge Solo also boasts custom electronics designed by Antelope's award-winning engineers, and it delivers exceptional dynamic range and frequency response, resulting in an excellent microphone even before choosing your favourite vintage mic flavour.

    Unlike the multi-capsule modelling microphones in the Edge series, Solo features a fixed cardioid pickup pattern and feeds a single mono XLR input channel on your interface. This makes it very easy to use. Simply take it out of its case, plug it in, pick one of the 18 available emulations and start tracking.

    Compatible With Any System
    The Edge emulations are optimised to perform with Antelope's precision mic preamps and converters for maximum accuracy. Antelope Audio's mic preamp-equipped interfaces feature built-in FPGA processing capabilities that allow real-time vintage mic emulation.

    Edge Solo 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.
