Pristine studio quality sound
Over the years, Antelope Audio has built a reputation for building pristine, high-end analog-to-digital converters and interfaces, which are used in world-class studios across the world. The Edge Go is no different, offering pristine A/D conversion of up to 192 kHz/24bit resolution –almost unheard of for USB microphones. While the Edge Go does the job of a microphone, preamp and interface, it certainly doesn’t skimp on quality. It uses the exact same dual-diaphragm capsules as the Edge Duo condenser mic (a long time favorite of many studio professionals) and uses the same engineering principles for A/D conversion as the world-class Antelope converters found in studios all over the world.
Software for accurate emulations
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the Edge Go is its ability to emulate classic vintage microphones with stunning realism. It does this with the included control panel software, which lets you audition and compare 11 microphone emulations, all based on tried-and-true studio mics that have been used on thousands of hit records. These include warm tube mics like the Tokyo 800T, Berlin 49T, Berlin 67, and Vienna 12; crisp FET condensers like
the Berlin 87, Berlin M103, Berlin 47 FT, and Vienna 414; and smooth ribbons like the
Sacramento 121R and Oxford 4038. You can even use the pickup pattern of your choice, with options from omnidirectional, cardioid, figure-8, and everything in between. Or if you prefer, you can skip the emulation all together and get a transparent, flat, large-diaphragm condenser sound.
As if that wasn’t enough, the control panel software also includes 22 additional effects, all modeled after classic studio gear. These include vintage preamps, compressors, and eq’s as well as a de-esser, tape emulator, and Antelope’s extremely flexible Aura Verb. Start with the expertly crafted library of presets, or build your own effects chains and save them as a preset for easy recall. To make things even better, all the processing power for these effects (and the mic emulations) takes place within the Edge Go’s hardware, so you’ll never bog down your CPU no matter how many effects you apply!
