    Welcome to the future of Microphones
    Imagine having a world-class mic locker full of the most inspiring classic microphones from the history of the recording industry. Well, you can stop imagining. Slate Digital are proud to announce the Virtual Microphone System – a hybrid system that utilises an extremely transparent condenser microphone, a sonically neutral preamp, and a plugin module that works in concert with this hardware to replicate some of the world's finest and most sought-after microphones and preamps.

    ML-1 Microphone
    The ML-1 is an extremely high definition, ultra linear, large diaphragm condenser microphone. It has extremely precise transparent reproduction, flat frequency response, and super wide bandwidth, making it the ideal blank canvas on which to impart the colourful vibe of classic tube and condenser microphones. The capsule proximity effect precisely replicates the classic cardioid of vintage large diaphragm mics.

    VMS-One
    To ensure that the ML-1 avoids any colour when recorded to the workstation, Slate Digital created the VMS-ONE preamp. Using state-of-the-art amplifiers, this super linear and clean circuit preamp is the final step in ensuring that the purest signal is created, giving the VMS plugin module the opportunity to add the perfect reproduction of classic microphones and preamps.

    VMS Plug-in Module
    The final piece of the Virtual Microphone System is the VMS plugin module. This module turns the ultra clean signal coming from the VMS hardware into classic recreations of famous microphones and microphone preamps. It accomplishes this through extremely complex algorithms that are the result of a groundbreaking new physical modelling process that is ultimately tuned by ear. The VMS algorithms add zero latency, so recording in real-time through the emulations is easy on a new powerful native system.
