Product information - Discrete 8 Solo Bundle

Discrete8+2 Edge Solo+4 Verge

Antelope Audio's discrete 8-microphone preamp interface brings a new dimension in sound quality and performance to home studios and mobile recording devices. It comes with 8 discrete 6-transistor console-quality preamps, 121 db dynamic conversion and stable clocking, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Both Discrete 4 and Discrete 8 feature DC-coupled analog line outputs for use at CV interfaces (control voltage). Primarily for recording with and making full use of analog synths.
Discrete 8 includes all Antelope Audio Premier real-time FPGA FX, including authentic models of iconic devices from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and many others.

The Antelope AFX platform is a fast growing hardware modeling engine. Discrete 8 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformers and tube effects, as well as a huge selection of classic vintage devices that will soon be available in every DAW via the upcoming AFX2DAW plug-in.

The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform has now been expanded to a complete professional studio experience:

Discreet 8 meets Edge Solo and Verge

Together with the highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ's, these modeling microphones will form a true, state-of-the-art front-end that will usher in a new era of modern recording.

Edge Solo & Verge are two of Antelope Audio's powerful modeling microphones that combine outstanding modeling potential with a fast and user-friendly workflow. Together with the Discrete 8 Mic Preamp Interface they form a perfect and versatile recording system. The bundle gives users access to an exquisite collection of vintage microphone emulations and authentic effect models from legendary studio equipment.

Edge Solo is a single capsule microphone from Antelope Audio that has been specially designed to reproduce the true sound of a variety of classic cardioid microphones. For maximum accuracy, Edge Solo can be used with any of Antelope Audio's microphone preamplifier-equipped interfaces, whose built-in FPGA processing functions enable vintage microphone emulation in real time.

Verge is a small diaphragm modeling microphone suitable for both nuanced accuracy and high sound pressure level recording. With his outstanding performance alone, he can assume the character and personality of the best small membrane capacitors and electret in the world.
