The premium FX pack features 50+ of Antelope Audio's real-time FPGA FX plug-ins, which are authentic digital re-creations of classic hardware processors. It allows you to utilise four channel strips with four FX instances each, and up to 16 channel strips using the new AFX2DAW plug-in. The included effects and processors can be used in your preferred DAW using the AFX2DAW plug-in. Discrete 8's effects deliver exceptional quality and accurate emulations of the vintage processors. The FPGA FX library includes over 50 Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX including compressors, reverbs, EQs, and much more.
Discrete 8 features eight console-grade preamps that feature a fully discrete design. It allows you to fully transform these high quality Accusonic preamps in a plethora of classic units in real-time. Accusonic modeling emulates the sounds of many classic and expensive microphones. It allows you to choose from a collection of various mics, and record their results as you monitor live. This allows you to choose between a blend of different preamp models during mixing. The Accusonic 3D modeling engine allows you to transform both the Edge (sold separately) and Verge microphones into vintage replicas, giving you full control over the proximity effect, off-axis response, and polar patterns, before or after recording.
Discrete 8 allows you to monitor up to four individual monitor mixes. The Discrete 8 features a comprehensive monitoring section with built-in talkback. Discrete 8 allows you to send four individual monitor mixes to headphones or monitor output, with or without FPGA FX. This allows you to tailor monitor mixes to each performer, enabling them to hear a sound as close to the final product as possible. Use the handy levels on the front panel of the Discrete 8 to always keep track of your levels.
The Verge now comes complete with a range of high-grade microphone emulations. It features six 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.
Ideal for both studio and live sound, the Verge mic is versatile, and can handle high SPL levels from instrument recordings and performances. With a wide frequency range of 40Hz - 20kHz, the Verge modeling mic can capture an array of instruments, and the fine nuances they provide. The Verge mic is an excellent tool for accurately capturing signals rich in transients such as drums, or other instruments that provide a percussive sound.
Accusonic allows you to adjust the mic settings with full control over proximity effect, off-axis response, and polar pattern. The Verge microphone can accurately emulate this, allowing you to get a different range of tones from one microphone. What sets the Verge apart from other microphones is that it runs real-time on Antelope's FPGA. This means you can audition different microphones, and switch between them in real-time. 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.
Plug the Verge into your Discrete audio interface's preamps, and you can transform it into any one of several vintage tube, transformer, and FET-based microphones. 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.
Any electrical items in your order may have been designed to work with a 240V circuit, using a United Kingdom G type plug connection. An adapter or transformer may be required for these items to work properly and safely in your country. Some items work with a range of voltages, or have a switchable voltage control built in. Please refer to the specific product details for further information.
