Thunderbolt Audio Interface with Modelling Microphone.
Antelope Audio’s Discrete 8 Microphone Preamp Interface brings a new level of sound quality and power to home studios and mobile recordists. It comes with 8 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking.
Both the Discrete 4 and the Discrete 8 come with DC coupled analogue line outputs to be used at CV (control voltage) interfaces. Primarily for recording with and taking full advantage of analogue synths.
Discrete 8 features all of the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many more.
The Antelope AFX platform is a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which will soon be accessible in any DAW via the upcoming AFX2DAW Plugin.
The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience:
Edge emulations - Berlin 47 FT, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T, Oxford 4038, Berlin M103, Berlin 49T, Sacramento 121F, Berlin 57, Vienna 12, Vienna 414
Verge emulations - Berlin 184, Perth 55, Freiburg 6, Aalborg 4006, Hamburg 40
Antelope Modeling Microphones
Discrete 8 meets Edge and Verge
Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, these new modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Edge and Verge are modeling microphones by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, these new modeling microphones will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Inside the Discrete 8 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.
Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Antelope founder Igor Levin designed groundbreaking fully discrete electronics. Hand selected capsules encased in a carefully crafted enclosure with contours and shape for optimal sonic performance. Edge is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns.
Verge is a small diaphragm modeling microphone suited for both nuanced accuracy and high SPL recording. Also exhibiting excellent performance on it’s own, it can take on the character and personality of the world’s best small diaphragm condensers and electrets.
