Slate Digital's VMS ML-1 large diaphragm modeling microphone offers unprecedented flexibility for studio and live sound. This innovative mic combines a transparent, full-range condenser capsule with powerful modeling software that provides emulations of prized vintage and modern microphones. The ML-1's linear frequency response and ultralow noise floor capture audio with stunning clarity, serving as an ideal blank canvas for the modeling software's microphone emulations.

Groundbreaking Software Provides a Virtual Mic Locker

At the heart of the VMS ML-1 system is Slate Digital's industry-leading modeling software. This powerful software unlocks emulations of coveted classics like the Neumann U 47 and M 49 as well as modern microphones from brands like Slate Digital. With the turn of a dial, you can switch the ML-1 between a vintage tube mic, a modern condenser or a dynamic mic. The software provides tonal options that would otherwise require an investment of hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Premium Components Ensure Superior Performance

Slate Digital spared no expense in designing the ML-1. Its gold-sputtered capsule is housed in a sturdy metal chassis with an internal shock mount to prevent unwanted vibration. Electronics are also high-end, with a state-of-the-art FET preamp and transformerless circuit path for maximum transparency. The result is a microphone that captures audio with stunning realism and detail across all frequency ranges.

Rugged and Road-Ready

While designed primarily for studio use, the ML-1 is also well-suited for live sound and field recording applications. Its shock-resistant chassis and metal exterior are built to withstand the rigors of transport and live performance. The included accessories like a protective case, mic clip and cable also make the ML-1 a complete and road-ready recording solution.

Flexibility for Any Application

With its transparent sound and modeling capabilities, the VMS ML-1 is an ideal choice for recording virtually any audio source. Vocals, acoustic instruments, drums and amplifiers are all captured faithfully. The ML-1's polar patterns can also be switched between cardioid, omni and figure-8, providing even more tonal options. For studio or live use, the VMS ML-1 is a microphone that can do it all.
