Slate Digital VMS ML-1 Vintage Edition
The ML-1 Vintage Edition takes our ultra linear microphone circuit from our VMS ML-1 Modeling Microphone and places it into a vintage 47 style body for the ultimate pairing of classic looks and modern technology.
Make It Sound like Any Classic Mic
The Slate Digital ML-1 is at the heart of your VMS system, providing a gateway to a vast array of classic microphones. This ultra-linear, sonically neutral large-diaphragm condenser mic captures even the loudest sounds with clinical precision — the perfect blank canvas to use with Slate Digital’s microphone emulations. Beyond that, the ML-1 accurately reproduces the proximity effect of a vintage large-diaphragm condenser in cardioid mode. When combined with a Slate Digital VMS-One mic preamp and their incredible VMS software, the ML-1 supplies you with unprecedented sonic flexibility.
Combine with Slate Digital’s VMS-One mic preamp for unlimited sonic options
The Slate Digital ML-1 modeling mic is designed to be the perfect match for the VMS-One mic preamp. This delivers a coloration-free signal that, when routed through Slate’s VMS microphone/preamp modeling software, gives you a staggering selection of microphone models ranging from coveted tube classics (the FG-47 and FG-251) to a modern ultra-fidelity condenser (the FG-800). Slate’s Virtual Preamp Collection includes the FG-73, modeled after a legendary British discrete solid-state console preamp; and the FG76, modeled after a classic vintage tube pre.
Slate Digital VMS is your virtual high-end mic locker
What would you pay for a locker full of coveted, mint-condition vintage microphones and high-end modern classics? While you’re calculating that, we’d like to tell you about an alluring alternative. The Slate Digital VMS Virtual Microphone System includes an extremely transparent microphone, a sonically neutral preamp, and Slate’s amazing VMS microphone/preamp modeling software — and it puts a world-class virtual mic locker in your recording rig at an amazing price. Everyone here at Sweetwater is very excited about Slate Digital VMS. Use it on your next project, and you will be too.
Breakthrough hybrid modeling: the key to VMS
Slate’s VMS starts with the ML-1 large-diaphragm condenser, which is completely devoid of coloration. Beyond that, the sonically neutral VMS-One Linear Preamp ensures minimal coloration, giving you a clean slate for preamp modeling. The VMS plug-in software lets you completely change the tonal characteristics of your recording, even after the fact. Choose from a massive collection of classic vintage mic and preamp models, as well as unique models for advanced recording techniques. You can re-create countless iconic recording chains most engineers can only dream of getting their hands on!
