Antelope Discrete 4 overview

  • 1Description

The Antelope Discrete 4 Interface with Edge Duo Microphone and Premium Effects bundles together three products suitable for studio use. First, you get the Discrete 4, a Thunderbolt/USB audio interface designed to provide high-end tracking and monitoring functions, giving you 14 inputs, 20 outputs, and more. Next is the Edge Duo Modeling Microphone, a large-diaphragm, dual-membrane modeling microphone designed to provide accurate emulations of classic and vintage mics. Lastly, a Premium FX Pack provides 50 effects, including guitar amplifiers, EQs, compressors, and more.

  • Discrete 4 Thunderbolt/USB 14x20 Audio Interface with Premium FX Pack

    The Antelope Discrete 4 with Premium FX Pack is a Thunderbolt/USB 14x20 audio interface designed to provide high-end tracking and monitoring functions, real-time effects, and remote control capabilities for musicians and engineers in personal, project, and commercial recording studios and rehearsal spaces. It features 14 inputs, 20 outputs, a host of real-time effects and models, support for sample rates up to 192 kHz, and host connectivity via Thunderbolt and USB 2.0.

    Four XLR-1/4” combo jack inputs give you access to the four discrete Accusonic microphone preamps. There are also ADAT optical and S/PDIF coaxial digital inputs for accepting signal from devices such as digital mixers and A/D converters. Multiple 1/4" outputs include four independent front-panel headphone jacks, four rear-panel line outs, and two balanced monitor outputs. Additionally, there is one ADAT optical output and a S/PDIF coaxial 2-channel output.

    Over 50 real-time effects from guitar amps to vintage compressors can be used during tracking and mixing. The Premium FX Pack enables use of four channel strips, each with four FX instances. Use up to 16 channel strips in your DAW via the AFX2DAW plug-in. During tracking sessions, control recording and monitoring levels via a downloadable app for iOS and Android smartphones or tablets.

    Use Effects During Tracking and Mixing
    • Antelope Audio FPGA technology powers over 50 real-time effects. Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the AFX2DAW plug-in. These not only sound but respond just like real hardware thanks to the unit's component-based modeling platform.
    • Plug your guitar directly into one of the two the hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with guitar amps and cabinet models. Add compression, EQ, and AuraVerb while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet, and microphone combination.
    • Perform and record either with effects or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects.
    Over 50 Effects Included
    • Guitar Amps: Burnsphere (DE), Marcus II (US), Overange 120 (UK), Tweed Deluxe, Top30, Darkface, Modern, Plexi 59, Rock 75, Rock 22.10
    • EQ Legends: VEQ-55b, VEQ-STU 089, VEQ-STU 169, VEQ-STU 900, VEQ HA32C, BAE 1023, BAE 1084, NEU-W492, NEU-W495, NEU-PEV, VEQ-4K Black, VEQ-4K Brown, VEQ-4K Pink, VEQ-4K Orange, BAE 1073, VEQ-HLF, VEQ-1A, VMEQ-5, VEQ-55A, Lang PEQ2, UK-69, Parametric EQ
    • Vintage Compressors: X903, VCA160, Gyraf Gyratec X, Tube176, Grove Hill Liverpool, FET-A76, FET-A78, ALT-436C, BA-6A, SMT-100A, Stay-Levin, Tubechild670, PowerGate, FeedForward Compressor
    • Reverb: AuraVerb
    Customizable Signal Path
    • The Discrete 4's console-grade and fully discrete preamps were designed to offer high-end, customizable sound. The powerful Antelope Audio FPGA engine can transform these Accusonic preamps into several classic-sounding units via models of circuitry based on tubes, transformers, and FETs.
    • Both the engineer and the performer can instantly hear the blends of ten different mic preamps without any latency or comb filtering. The microphone source can be recorded with and without Accusonic modeling. This allows the engineer to choose between preamp models during mixing. You can even load AFX presets from other users.
    Discrete Microphone Preamplifiers
    • Traditionally, interface preamps are comprised of two transistors, which makes them a hybrid between transistors and IC chips. Antelope Audio incorporates a fully discrete design consisting of six accurately matched transistors. Field effect transistors add a touch of warmth to the sound and bipolar transistors keep THD and noise extremely low.
    Accurate Clocking
    • The Discrete 4 features Antelope’s 4th generation 64-bit Acoustically Focused Clocking (AFC) technology from the acclaimed Trinity, OCX HD, LiveClock, Pure2, Goliath, Orion, and Zen products. Two word clock outputs allow you to distribute clock to your other digital gear and mic preamps in your setup connected via ADAT and S/PDIF.
    Versatile Monitoring
    • Discrete 4 has a comprehensive and easy-to-configure monitoring and talkback section. A band can have up to four individual monitoring mixes with FPGA FX included sent to headphones or monitor outputs. The engineer can make custom headphone mixes for each performer. Effects can be included to allow artists to hear sound closer to what will be on the record.
    • Users can create custom presets to easily set up various tracking scenarios in a snap. The front panel features a monitor volume knob and dedicated knobs for each headphone output. Metering is viewable on the front panel display, inside the EasyPanel, and via the remote app.
    Remote Control
    • Use the Discrete 4 downloadable remote app to adjust all microphone input levels, talkback levels, and monitoring and headphone volumes remotely. Musicians can control their own headphone volume with their phones and the engineer can check input levels from the tracking room.
    Cross-Platform Compatibility
    • The Discrete 4 can be connected via Thunderbolt or USB 2.0 and is compatible with Mac OS X and Windows systems
  • Edge Duo Large-Diaphragm Condenser Modeling Microphone

    The Antelope Edge Duo is a dual-membrane, large-diaphragm condenser primarily designed to be used with Antelope's microphone modeling technology, which emulates the characteristics of various vintage and classic microphones. With its dual-membrane, dual-output construction, the microphone aims to facilitate an accurate on-axis and off-axis response, one that you can better tweak across two channels thanks to its multiple outputs. An included oxygen-free copper cable makes the connection from the mic's 5-pin output to two 3-pin XLR terminations.

    The mic itself sports two 1.3" gold-sputtered membranes, about 6 microns thick, which give you multiple polar patterns. Omnidirectional, figure-8, cardioid, and everything in between are available, tweakable in the software world during—and even after—your recording. The Edge Duo captures frequencies between 20 Hz to 20 kHz, doing so 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.

    Along with the aforementioned breakout Y-cable, the Edge Duo includes a shockmount and pop filter. A case with foam inserts is also included.

    Single Capsule, Dual-Membrane Construction
    Housed in a specially designed low-resonance body with a sleek matte black finish, the Edge Duo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered dual-membrane capsule.
    Accurate Mic Modeling through Dual Outputs
    Edge Duo's dual-membrane capsule design feeds two separate XLR output channels via the included Y-cable. This stereosonic design allows the mic to accurately emulate the characteristic on- and off-axis responses of classic capsules, giving you a multi-dimensional mic-modeling experience.
    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 Duo 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 is required for these emulations, and it is available separately.
