Featuring multiple polar patterns, the Antelope Audio Edge microphone allows for versatile mic positioning and a range of tones. The Edge microphone has been designed to work closely with their FPGA processors, in real-time. This allows you to audition various microphones without having to switch microphone setups.
Whatever you want to record, the Edge Go is fit for purpose. Versatile, flexible, and it sounds great.

A world first. The Edge Go is powered by USB bus and is the first modelling microphone of its kind. The set up of the Edge Go couldn't be easier. Just plug it into your computer and harness the power of Edge. This makes the microphone incredibly portable and reduces latency allowing you to create incredibly natural recordings.
The Edge now comes complete with a range of high-grade microphone emulations. It features 12 mic emulations in total, comprised of some of the most sought-after microphones from music history. The emulations are designed to make your recordings sound like they were recorded on various classic microphones.
For example, using the Berlin 47 FT emulation, you can achieve the authentic sound of one of the most popular microphones in history. The emulations range from classic vintage microphones to modern-day mics.
The Antelope Audio Edge microphone is designed to be used with Antelope Audio's Discrete preamp interfaces. The interfaces feature FPGA Accusonic modelling. The software features detailed real-time emulations of classic condenser microphones. The software allows you to choose from an array of different mics to perform with.
The Edge microphone can accurately emulate different polar patterns, off-axis response, and proximity effect, allowing you to get a different range of tones from one microphone. What sets the Edge apart from everyone else, is that it runs real-time on the FPGA. This means you can audition different microphones, and switch between them in real-time. It is especially handy if you already have a singer or performer in the recording booth, but don't want to keep changing microphones. Using the Accusonic 3D modelling software allows you to switch between different microphones and microphone preamps. You never need to worry about getting the perfect take, and then suddenly realising you should have changed microphones, as the software allows you to switch microphone emulation after recording.
The Edge microphone is a dual capsule design that is edge mounted. This results in a much smoother response compared to centre mounted capsules. This approach helps to accurately and smoothly model the classic expensive microphones.
The Edge mounting approach is one that was employed on very popular vintage microphones. The Edge microphone can model several vintage mics including the U47, U67, U87, M49, M149, UMB57, TLM013, and many more.
Plug the Edge into your Discrete audio interface's preamps, and you can transform it into any one of several vintage tube, transformer, and FET-based microphones. Antelope's FPGA is the perfect modeling platform for monitoring, and recording performances in real-time. You can choose to record with or without modeling, as the microphone itself sounds great on its own too. However, you will also have the choice to switch between an array of classic microphone emulations during mixdown, allowing you to get the sound you want.
