The Antelope Audio Edge Solo is a single capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone designed for Antelope's vintage mic emulations.
Edge Solo is a high-quality single-capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone by Antelope Audio. Combined with Antelope's cutting-edge modeling technology, it allows users to emulate 18 of the world's most iconic vintage microphones with uncanny accuracy. The Edge Solo features modeling that was performed in one of the most respected facilities in Germany using an exquisitely preserved collection of classic microphones. See the full list of Edge Solo emulations below.
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 favorite vintage mic flavor.
Unlike the multi-capsule modeling 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.
The Edge emulations are optimized 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 modeling settings after recording. Available in VST, AU and AAX formats for both macOS and Windows, Antelope's native AFX plug-ins* provide everything you've come to expect from their industry-leading FPGA FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations.
*iLok 2 or 3 required. Not included in the pack.
Building on the success of the acclaimed Edge modeling mic, the Edge Family from Antelope Audio features three large-diaphragm condenser mics - the fixed cardioid Edge Solo, the multi-pattern Edge Duo and the dual-capsule, four-output Edge Quadro, capable of 360° stereo recording.
Together with Antelope's constantly expanding range of FPGA and native AFX mic emulation plug-ins, the Edge Family makes Antelope's unrivalled mic modeling technology available to an even wider range of users and recording applications.
