The Antelope Audio Edge Solo Modeling Microphone is a high-quality large-diaphragm condenser microphone by Antelope Audio. Combined with Antelope's cutting-edge modeling technology, it allows users to emulate 18 of the world's most iconic vintage microphones with uncanny accuracy.
Edge Solo was specifically designed to recreate the true sound of a multitude of vintage cardioid-pattern microphones. It's great for modeling because it’s engineered to be great at simply capturing accurate sound. Designed and built in Europe, Edge Solo features a 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane, low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket. With custom electronics designed by Antelope's experienced engineers, Solo delivers impressive dynamic range and frequency response.
Plug 'n' play
Unlike the more complex modeling microphones in the Edge series, Solo features a fixed cardioid pickup pattern and feeds a single mono XLR input channel on your interface. This makes it exceptionally easy to use. Simply take it out of its case, plug it in, pick one of the 18 available emulations and start tracking.
The Edge emulations are designed to work hand-in-hand with Antelope’s own precision mic preamps and converters. For maximum accuracy, Edge Solo 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, Edge Solo 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 everything we’ve come to expect from their industry-leading FPGA FX, with minimal latency, a high degree of oversampling and precise floating-point calculations.

About the new Edge Family
Building on the success of the acclaimed Edge modeling mic, the new Edge Family from Antelope Audio features three new large-diaphragm condenser mics – the fixed cardioid Edge Solo, the multi-pattern Edge Duo and the dual-capsule, four-output Edge Quadro, capable of 360° stereo recording. Together with Antelope’s constantly expanding range of FPGA and native AFX mic emulation plug-ins, the Edge Family makes Antelope’s unrivaled mic modeling technology available to an even wider range of users and recording applications.
