Capture multi-dimensional sound
The Edge Duo is a multi-pattern large dual-diaphragm condenser microphone, capable of 3-dimensional high-resolution sound recordings. This innovative device can transform its behavior, color, frequency and transient response into 18 different iconic microphones that are still used in some of the most sophisticated recording studios. Thanks to its dual-diaphragm design and unique Modeling Engine, the Edge Duo allows for real-time polar pattern alterations during recording and mixing.
Redefine your tone with professional studio quality
The years of experience as a leader in pro audio allowed us to create one of the most capable and transparent microphones on the market today. Even before loading any emulations, the Edge Duo effortlessly delivers an intimately detailed presence that will push any track to the front of your mix.
The capsule is fitted with two of our signature 6-micron gold-sputtered membranes and the body is equipped with custom electronics for truly unparalleled sound performance and flexibility.
18 iconic studio microphones in one body
The Edge Duo comes with an extensive collection of 18 legendary microphones – a diverse collection assembled according to the top picks of many award-winning engineers and producers. The mic locker contains emulations of some of the most coveted and rarest microphones. Included are true classics of German and Austrian engineering as well as one of Britain’s most revered ribbon microphones.
Embrace the future of recording
What makes the Edge Duo such a unique recording tool is the Modeling Engine – а futuristic technology that brings a selection of timeless classics to your studio.
To develop it, we worked with several revered European facilities, making rigorous measurements and testing multiple exquisitely preserved vintage microphones, as well as modern high-end classics. The accuracy of our mic emulations keeps the frequency response and color of the originals in a complete 360° coverage. The dual-diaphragm design of the Edge Duo is what allows you to adjust the polar patterns of the emulations directly from the software in real-time.
Enter a new era for record-making
Select microphone model, polar pattern, and other settings both before and after tracking. The option to choose between the different microphone models can be a great asset to the performer during tracking while mixing engineers can benefit from trying out different models in post-production.
Although it works with any preamp, the modeling microphone excels when paired with our Synergy Core interfaces’ Discrete preamps. Processing by the onboard DSP acceleration, means you will be able to use the microphone emulations in real-time, with imperceptible latency and zero CPU load.
Benefit from broad application and compatibility
The Edge Duo is an all-purpose tool for studio professionals looking to record a variety of sources. It works with any preamp with 48V phantom power and its variable polar pickup pattern is ideal for room miking drums, recording backing vocals and any acoustic performance.
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 required.
