Antelope unveils EDGE Strip Discrete preamp and modelling mic bundle

Pro audio manufacturer Antelope Audio has announced the availability of the EDGE Strip bundle, featuring the EDGE modelling microphone and the Discrete Dual Ultra-Linear Microphone Preamp.

The EDGE Strip-bundled Discrete MP dual-input microphone preamplifier places the same transistor schematic that beats at the heart of the Discrete 8 Thunderbolt & USB Interface with and Discrete 4 Thunderbolt & USB Interface at its user’s fingertips.

Furthermore, the EDGE Strip bundle comes complete with the free native-format Fusion AFX Pack plug-ins, including several microphone and preamp emulations alongside the BA 1073 EQ and STAY-LEVIN compressor.

The days of spending tens of thousands of dollars on a vintage mic collection are over, thanks to must-have microphone emulations like the BERLIN 47 FT, BERLIN 87 and TOKYO 800T. Preamp emulations include: ANTELOPE V76, GIRAFFE G9, and BAE 1073 MP.

The unique discrete design of its preamp allows Antelope Audio to modify each individual aspect of the preamp, putting total control over colouration, clarity, and character in the hands of the user.

The offering packs a lot into its diminutive (190mm W x 46.5mm H x 157mm D) dimensions, with two INPUTS on MIC-XLR and LINE-USE 1/4” JACK, offering 20dBu max balanced @ 2kΩ (XLR only) and 29dBu max balanced @ 13K to ground (TRS only); two TRS OUTPUTS (22dBu max); USB CONTROL I/O (USB 2.0 Full-Speed Type B for remote control only); and a mic preamp pushing out an accomplished gain range of 0dB to 61dB (in 1dB steps) alongside 48V phantom power.

The EDGE Strip bundle is now available to purchase through Antelope Audio’s growing global network of dealers with an MSRP of €1,295.
