Antelope Edge Duo Large-Diaphragm Condenser Modeling Microphone

BH #ANEDMM • MFR #EDGE DUO
Antelope Edge Duo Large-Diaphragm Condenser Modeling Microphone
Key Features
  • Cardioid, Omnidirectional & Figure-8
  • Dual 1.3" Capsules
  • Gold-Sputtered Membranes on Capsules
  • Models/Emulates Vintage Microphones
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 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.
