Slate Digital’s virtual microphone locker.
What if you could have a mic locker filled with dozens of the world’s greatest microphones and preamps available at your fingertips? What if you could audition virtual mics on any vocalist or any instrument while you sit in your studio chair? Well with the VMS Virtual Microphone System you can. Please note: an iLok 2 is required for operation.
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 colorful vibe of classic tube and condenser microphones. The capsule proximity effect precisely replicates the classic cardioid of vintage large diaphragm mics.
To ensure that the ML-1 avoids any color when recorded to the workstation, Slate 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.
This mic will take you back in time. It’s lush, warm, fat, present, and BIG sounding. If you have a wimpy source, it gets fixed with this mic. It doesn’t have that modern sizzly top-end air, but it takes EQ in the top end like a champion. I love adding some Custom Series 10kHz when using this mic. By pushing the intensity, it gets even darker, moodier, and a bit more saturated. Don’t just use this microphone on vocals. Put it on drums as a room mic. Put it on the outside of a kick. Put it on horns, strings.
The FG-800 is based on a solid performing studio vocal mic. This is a bright and airy microphone. That airy, clear, bright tone works perfectly in a pop mix with no EQ needed. When this mic works, nothing will sound as good. And it actually works a lot, even on modern male rock vocals.
The FG-251 sounds so good on just about everything. It’s the perfect balance of top, middle, and bottom. There is something so flattering about this mic that every singer just sounds better than they do in the actual room.
Now Includes the Classic Tubes 2 Expansion Pack
FG-12: The FG-12 emulates an Austrian classic known for being incredibly smooth and rich-sounding. Slate chose an absolutely incredible mic to model that is the perfect representation of this famous tone.
FG-800M: The FG-800M emulates an older Japanese tube mic and is slightly fatter and darker than the stock
FG-800. If you love the FG-800 but wish it was a tad less sibilant and bright, you're gonna love this.
FG-M7: The FG-M7 takes one of the most famous dynamic vocal mics used by artists like Michael Jackson, and adds the tube stage of the classic 47 making it extremely punchy, crisp, with incredible mids that cut through the mix.
FG-269: The FG-269 emulates an extremely rare German classic that shares much of the same circuit as the 67, but has a different tube that makes it more open and clear.
FG67: The FG-67 emulates a German classic known for being bold, slightly dark, and thick. This is amazing as a vocal mic, room mic, horn mic, and piano mic.

Comments about Slate Digital VMS Virtual Microphone System:
This was everything that I hoped it would be. Great sound, zero latency, amazing versatility. It seemed to good to be true however this is break through technology! After tracking vocals, you can switch the mic for a different one, yet you can also hear the mic that your using while singing. (tested using MOTU 828 firewire) I also picked up the Aston microphone, Halo reflector which is a great combination. The emulations are the way of the future in my opinion. I never knew what I was missing all these years until I heard this mic. This is B-dub of Transcending Vibrations with 20+ years of production...respect to the Slate Digital!
