Verge is a modeling microphone by Antelope Audio, suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. Combined with the already highly acclaimed Antelope Audio FPGA Vintage Compressors & EQ’s, this new modeling microphone will comprise a true cutting edge front end that will usher in a new era for modern recording.
Verge is a small diaphragm modeling microphone suited for both nuanced accuracy and high SPL recording. Also exhibiting excellent performance on its own, it can take on the character and personality of the world’s best small diaphragm condensers and electrets.
The true voices of vintage microphones
Inside the FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform both Edge and Verge 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.
Vintage Mic Emulations:
Berlin 184, Perth 55, Freiburg 6, Aalborg 4006, Hamburg 40
Berlin 184 is a small-diaphragm condenser microphone and your top choice when recording cymbals, brass or percussion. It comes with a capsule with a cardioid polar pattern and can handle both extreme sound pressure levels, and subtle dynamics from acoustic instruments. It will suit both the rock'n'roll life and the chamber or orchestral setting. Signature German precision and sound is guaranteed.
Perth 55 is a small-diaphragm, true-condenser cardioid microphone with an omnidirectional capsule. It's very suitable for recording acoustic instruments, overheads and live performances.
No off-axis noise, no feedback, no unwanted audio signal in your recording. Instead, the cardioid Freiburg 6 microphone is focused on capturing voice or musical instruments with enviable attention to detail and no coloration whatsoever.
Modeled after an omnidirectional microphone, which has become an industry standard, Aalborg 4006 will allow you to achieve outstanding detail and depth. Our emulation is a dream come true for engineers for its natural sound, astonishing sensitivity, linear frequency response and extremely low noise-floor. Great for recording vocals or acoustic instruments, including guitars, woodwinds, brass etc.
Hamburg 40 is a versatile condenser microphone that can save your a** even if you're not recording in the best space possible. It shines bright when used for recording vocals or speech, but its low noise-floor and neutral directional specs are a guarantee for balanced sound when recording pretty much any sound source. Great for cymbals, overheads or whole groups of instruments.
