Antelope Audio’s all-new Edge Go is a studio-grade, large-diaphragm condenser USB microphone that provides producers, travelling musicians, podcasters, music
Reality shows that Edge Go is a studio-in-a-mic magical experience like no other. By being built to Antelope Audio’s exacting specifications, with the same dual-diaphragm capsules featured in the company’s cutting-edge Edge Duo condenser microphone, Edge Go gives its users a USB-C output for conveniently recording directly to their computer — no need for an external preamp, mixer, or audio interface. Indeed, Edge Go functions as an audio interface in its own right, offering pristine A/D conversion with up to 192 kHz/24-bit resolution — far higher than a typical USB mic musters. Meanwhile, in the wider world of pro audio, Antelope Audio is known for building high-end, analogue-to-digital converters and super- accurate digital clocks found in world-class recording studios and broadcast facilities; furthermore, Edge Go gainfully draws upon this excellent engineering pedigree to provide Antelope Audio sound quality in a go-anywhere, bus-powered modelling microphone.
Edge Go comes complete with the Edge Go control panel software, so users can instantly audition and compare 11 expertly-crafted emulations modelled on time-tested studio microphones making their musical mark on thousands of hit recordings. From fat-sounding tube mics (like the Tokyo 800T, Berlin 49T, Berlin 67, and Vienna 12) through to crisp FET condensers (like the Berlin 87, Berlin M103, Berlin 47 FT, and Vienna 414) and beyond into the realms of smooth ribbons (like the Sacramento 121R and Oxford 4038)… simply select the mic in question, then dial in the pickup pattern needed — omnidirectional, cardioid, bidirectional, figure-8, and everything in-between. Antelope Audio ’s software models meticulously emulate the distinctive character of each iconic microphone — effectively allowing access to an awesome mic collection. Conversely, users can choose to record through the Edge Go microphone with no mic emulation applied for a transparent, flat 20 Hz – 20 kHz large-diaphragm sound.
Software magic far from finishes with Antelope Audio’s microphone modeling since Edge Go also allows access to a killer collection of 22 effects modeled on classic studio gear. These collectively cover all bases with must-have preamps, dynamics processors (including limiters, compressors, gates, and expanders), and a de-
