Product Overview New Level Studio Power - Expensive-sounding discrete mic preamps and vintage gear emulation
Antelope Audio’s Discrete 4 Microphone Preamp comes with 4 console grade 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Discrete 4 features the Antelope Audio premier real-time FPGA FX modeling iconic gear from BAE, Lang, Gyraf Audio and FET.

Discrete 4 includes Accusonic 3D microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, now accessible in any DAW thanks to the freshly introduced Antelope Connect AFX Plugin.

Sonic Supremacy - Console-grade and fully discrete preamps for best-in-class sound.
Discrete 4 was developed after an extensive research of legendary microphone preamp circuitry. The Antelope Audio FPGA engine transforms its already expensive sounding Accusonic preamps into several classic units. It’s all happening real-time and with as authentic responsiveness as possible.

Discrete 4 is designed to work with any microphone, but it really shines with Antelope’s new Edge and Verge mics. Edge & Verge were designed to match the unit’s discrete preamp architecture.

Inside the FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform Edge into vintage replicas giving you complete control over proximity effect, off-axis response and even allow you to change polar patterns during or after recording. Choose from a collection of classic and expensive microphones and track the results as you monitor live, bringing out a musician’s best possible performance.

Authentic Vintage Sound - Enjoy the sound of legendary FX gear in your DAW
The Antelope Audio real-time FPGA platform is now extended to a complete professional studio experience – Microphones, Preamps, Conversion, Compressors, EQs, and Reverb. Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in your preferred DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin. Perform and record either with FX or process in post-production. The Discrete 4 ReAmp outputs will allow you to use any outboard gear and route the resulting sound back in your DAW of choice.

Premium FX pack
The Premium FX pack that comes with Dicrete 4 allows you to employ the full studio power of the Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. The collection features authentic models of iconic studio units from BAE, Gyraf Audio, LANG and FET. With the Premium FX pack you can use 16 instances of each EQ, Compressor and AuraVerb; plus 4 instances of each guitar amp & cabinet models available. This Premium library features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX. Use them within the Discrete 4 EasyPanel or in a DAW via the new ConnectAFX Plugin.

Plug in your guitar directly into one of the hi-Z enabled inputs and instantly sculpt your tone with some of the most iconic guitar amps and cabinets around. Then add vintage compression, EQ and AuraVerb to hear a finished studio quality result with real-time responsiveness while playing through your preferred amp, cabinet and microphone combination. Perform and record either with FX or your direct input and process later using the integrated guitar effects.
