Antelope Edge Solo
Edge Solo is a high-quality single-capsule large-diaphragm condenser microphone by Antelope Audio. Combined with Antelope’s cutting-edge modeling technology, it allows users to emulate the world’s most iconic vintage microphones with uncanny accuracy.
The Edge Solo features modeling that was performed in one of the most respected facilities in Germany using an exquisitely preserved collection of classic microphones.
Solo features a fixed cardioid pickup pattern and feeds a single mono XLR input channel on your interface. This makes it very easy to use. Simply take it out of its case, plug it in, pick one of the emulations and start tracking.
High-performance custom design
Antelope’s Edge microphones are in a class of their own thanks to extensive testing and a design philosophy that ensures an accurate yet natural sounding result.
Designed and built in Europe, Edge Solo boasts custom electronics designed by Antelope’s award-winning engineers.
Edge Solo delivers exceptional dynamic range and frequency response, resulting in an excellent microphone even before choosing your favorite vintage mic flavor.

The Edge emulations are optimized to perform with Antelope’s precision mic preamps and converters for maximum accuracy. Antelope Audio’s mic preamp-equipped interfaces feature built-in FPGA processing capabilities that allow real-time vintage mic emulation.
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.
