Antelope Edge Solo
Edge Solo Modeling Microphone
Single capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone for Antelope’s vintage mic
One microphone to complete your mic locker
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. 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
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.
Compatible with any system
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 we’ve come to expect from their industry-leading FPGA
FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point
*iLok 2 or 3 required. Not included in the pack.
About the new Edge Family
Building on the success of the acclaimed Edge modeling mic, the new Edge Family from
Antelope Audio features three new 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.
