Antelope - 'Antelope - 'Discrete 8'
Thunderbolt & USB Audio Interface
+ Edge Solo Microphone
Thunderbolt & USB Audio Interface
With Condenser Modeling MicrophoneThe Discrete 8 Synergy Core from Antelope is an audio interface with onboard DSP and FPGA to free up valuable CPU from your computer during mix sessions. It also includes a vast swath of FPGA-powered effects, many of which can be used with Antelope modeling microphones, giving you the sound of multiple vintage microphones at a fraction of the cost of real-world hardware.
Included with the Interface is the Edge Solo condenser microphone. An easy to use and versatile tool that offers unmatched Antelope commitment to high-resolution sound and brings it to your home studio, building upon it with the tone-shaping abilities of 18 recording legends. The unique balance of heritage and technical innovation is at the heart of the Edge Solo, resulting in a premier choice for your vocals and acoustic instruments.
• USB and Thunderbolt Connectivity with 8 x Discrete Microphone Preamps
• Line, ADAT, S/PDIF Outputs and Sample Rates up to 192 kHz
• Premium quality condenser modeling microphone with 18 emulations included
• Edge Solo mic works with any preamp to provide consistently great sound
Superior Synergy Core Technology
MICROPHONE PREAMP INTERFACEThe Discrete 8 offers eight Class-A preamps that provide console-grade sound. All of them utilize combination XLR-1/4" connections, but two of them are specifically designed to switch between mic level, line level, and Hi-Z sources. Monitor outputs and two pairs of line outputs can be found on the back of the unit, as can thunderbolt and USB ports for connecting to computers. You'll get 24 channels of I/O over USB, and 32 channels over thunderbolt. Should you want use of your amplifiers after DI'ing your guitars or basses, you can make use of the two ReAmp outputs.
S/PDIF and ADAT are both provided over optical I/O. The unit is expandable over ADAT, giving you extra channels. This is Antelope, so you'll find their top-notch 64-bit acoustically focused clocking on the unit, and you can sync the Discrete 8 over BNC connections, or distribute clocking to other units. Setting up monitor mixes is easy, and musicians can control their own mixes with a remote-control app over iOS or Android phones. With all these features and more, the Antelope makes a suitable centerpiece for your home or pro-level studio.
Use Effects During Tracking and Mixing
FPGA technologyAntelope Audio FPGA technology powers over 50 real-time effects. Use up to two channel strips with four FX instances each within the Discrete 8 EasyPanel. These not only sound but respond just like real hardware thanks to the unit's component-based modeling platform.
sculpt your tonePlug in your guitar directly into one of the two hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with guitar amps and cabinet models. Add compression, EQ, and AuraVerb while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet, and microphone combination.
integrated guitar effectsPerform and record either with effects or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects. The Discrete 8's two reamp outputs allow you to connect any of your effect pedals or outboard gear and record that sound back into your preferred DAW.
ANALOGue & DIGITAL I/OWith an abundance of analogue & digital connectivity, as well as both USB & Thunderbolt ports for computer connection, the Discrete 8 Synergy Core presents more options than any DSP-equipped interface out there. Eight mic/line inputs, two instrument inputs, eight DC-coupled line outputs on DB25, a pair of monitor outputs, two reamp outputs, two headphone outputs and S/PDIF are at your disposal. Digital expandability is possible via 2 × ADAT I/O chaining.
A Word Clock input allows for syncing the Discrete 8 Synergy Core with other gear, while three Word Clock outputs let you distribute the interface’s highly stable clock signal across your studio.
Antelope 'Edge Solo'
Condenser Modeling Microphone
A New Age Of Home RecordingThe Edge Solo is compatible with any preamp with 48V phantom power and is great for users that needa single microphone to record a range of sources. It performs with any type of audio – from vocals, guitars and drum overheads to speech applications, including voice over, dubbing, and audio books. The microphone emulations are available in VST, AU and AAX plugin formats for all popular DAWs under both macOS and Windows, regardless of the audio interface being used. An iLok 2 or 3 USB dongle is needed.
A New Era Of Quality
Elevate Your RecordingsDesigned with attention towards detailed sound capture, the Edge Solo uses technology created after years of experience with high-resolution sound. The 6-micron gold-sputtered membrane displays the character of your voice and instruments for a rich sound without sacrificing transients or detail.
True to the source characteristics are captured thanks to the low-resonance body and low-reflection headbasket. This also translates to self-noise levels that are hard to capture from the natural ambiance of your room.
A Treasure Of Microphones
18 EmulationsThe Edge Solo provides access to 18 carefully selected classic microphones. A diverse collection of revered models that were hand-selected as the top picks for many award-winning engineers and producers are all availabloe.
The Edge Solo will enhance your tracking possibilities on the same level as studios that have invested thousands in rare vintage microphone collections, while the ever-growing library of emulations will continue to grow for your home-studio.
Choose Your workflow
RECORDING & MIXING made easyDesigned for efficiency and versatility, the Edge solo features a modeling engine that saves studio-time whilsy keeping the creative dynamic in fast-paced recording sessions. It allows you to change your choice of microphone in real-time with a click of a button, without ever having to disturb the recording process, or record clean and try out different models in the mixing phase.
Although the Edge Solo works with any preamp, pairing it with the Discrete preamps of our Synergy Core interfaces unlocks the full potential of the real-time microphone emulations. When processed using the onboard Synergy Core platform, you can track with the emulations while enjoying imperceptible latency and zero CPU load.
Embrace The Future Of Recording
Advanched MODELING ENGINEThe Modeling Engine is what makes the Edge Solo such a unique recording tool – a futuristic technology that brings a selection of timeless classics to your studio. To develop it, Antelope worked with several revered European facilities, making rigorous measurements and testing multiple exquisitely preserved vintage microphones, along with modern high-end classics. The accuracy of these mic emulations keeps the frequency response and color of the originals.
