The Antelope Edge Solo is a large-diaphragm condenser primarily designed to be used with Antelope’s microphone modeling technology. This technology emulates the characteristics of various vintage and classic microphones.
The Solo sports a cardioid polar pattern, and as such, models the characteristic of classic cardioid mics. The mic itself sports a 1.3″ gold-sputtered membrane and captures frequencies between 20 Hz to 20 kHz. It does this transparently thanks to its low-resonance construction.
The mic is designed to work with Antelope’s interfaces, and as such, comes with the commensurate FPGA-based emulations. However, the mic also works with third-party interfaces, and that’s why Antelope has included native plug-ins that work with Mac and Windows systems, so long as you have an iLok 2 or iLok 3. The Edge Solo includes a hard mount and a standard case.
Single Capsule, Single-Membrane Construction
Included FPGA and Native Emulations
The Edge emulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope’s own precision mic preamps and converters. The Edge Solo 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, the mic also includes Antelope’s native mic emulation plug-ins, meaning you can use any third-party audio interface, and even change modeling settings after recording. Available in VST, AU, and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope’s native AFX plug-ins provide minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling, and precise floating-point calculations. An iLok 2 or iLok 3 is required for these emulations, and it is available separately.
