Santa Monica, CA (March 9, 2018)—Antelope Audio has shipped its new EDGE Strip bundle, comprised of the EDGE modeling microphone and specifically-designed Discrete MP discrete dual ultra-linear microphone preamp, aiming to emulate a locker-full of vintage mics and rack-full of outboard gear.
The Discrete MP was created to match the frequency response of the EDGE, a large-diaphragm modeling microphone featuring dual edge-terminated capsules. The EDGE Strip-bundled Discrete MP dual-input microphone preamplifier contains the same transistor schematic used in the Discrete line of Thunderbolt & USB Interfaces.
The bundle includes free native-format Fusion AFX Pack plug-ins, with several microphone and preamp emulations alongside the BA 1073 EQ and STAY-LEVIN compressor, designed by Igor Levin at Antelope Audio.
On the microphone emulation side, offerings include Berlin 47 FT; Berlin 67, emulating a tube condenser microphone with cardioid, omni, and figure eight polar patterns; Berlin 87, intended for recording brass sections, guitars, overheads, piano, percussion, strings, and vocals; and Tokyo 800T, a vintage tube mic intended for vocal recording. Other emulations include Antelope V76, Giraffe G9, and BAE 1073 MP preamp.
