Jam packed with 4 console-grade, 6-transistor discrete preamps, 121 db dynamic range conversion and rock solid clocking. Included with the Discrete 4 is the Antelope Audio Edge Modeling Microphone suited for the manufacturer's real-time mic preamp modeling. The Antelope AFX platform is based on a rapidly expanding hardware modeling engine. Discrete 4 includes Accusonic microphone and preamp models, guitar amps, transformer and tube FX, and a huge selection of classic vintage gear, which are now accessible in the DAW via the ConnectAFX Plugin.

The Edge Modeling Microphone
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. Edge features dual edge-terminated capsules for a smooth/natural sound reproducing the expressiveness and character of expensive classic microphones. Edge is an exquisite large diaphragm microphone with excellent transient response and capable of multiple polar patterns. Select from vintage microphones that left their sonic fingerprint in the recording world, like the Berlin 47 FT, Berlin 87, Berlin 67, Tokyo 800T and more.

A Breakthrough Discrete Microphone Preamp Design
Traditionally, interface preamps are comprised of only 2 transistors, which makes them a hybrid between transistors and IC chips. Antelope Audio incorporates a fully discrete design consisting of 6 accurately matched transistors, yet maintaining the advantages of digital control and repeatability of gain levels. Field effect transistors add an expensive-sounding touch of warmth and naturalness to the sound. Bipolar transistors keep THD and noise extremely low, which is quite uncommon in a discrete design.

Premium FX pack
The Premium FX pack that comes with this bundle 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. The Discrete 4 Premium FX pack allows you to use 4 channel strips with 4 FX instances  each and up to 16 channel strips using the new AFX2DAW plug-in. The Premium FX library features 50+ Antelope Audio real-time FPGA FX, including Vintage EQs, Compressors, AuraVerb, Guitar Amps & Cabinet models.

Tape Machine Emulation Plugin:
In modern production, adding tape saturation has become like adding reverb – you need it everywhere because nobody likes the sterile perfection of digital sound. Reel To Reel combines the best tape formulas, the best tape heads and the finest electronics. The combinations between all those will create endless scenarios. You can experiment with bias settings, tape hiss amounts, switch between four types of tape and adjust wow & flutter amounts. Mastering these parameters will allow you to achieve the warmth and color you crave in the desired amounts. Reel To Reel is an FPGA-powered effect, meaning it functions with no latency. The Antelope Audio tape machine will finally allow producers and recording artists to monitor the effect of our FPGA tape machine in real time, and not only during post-production.

Accusonic 3D modeling
Inside the Discrete 4 FPGA Accusonic 3D modeling engine you can transform the 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.
