Add some German classics, tube/ribbon hybrids and more to your Slate VMS locker.

The Slate Digital Classic Tubes 3 Expansion Pack adds five new lush, vintage and warm tube mics to the Virtual Microphone System (VMS) mic locker. From German classics to custom hybrid tube/ribbon mics, these mics will help give your recordings a classic tone and feel.

A model of one of the most famous old German tube mics, the FG-49 has an incredibly dominant and rich midrange along with a slightly airy and smooth top end. It makes a fantastic vocal mic for the right singer, but really shines as a drum room, piano, horn mic or kick drum mic.

The stock 67 in the VMS collection has the low-pass filter mod which makes it brighter than a typical 67, so Slate decided to add a gorgeous sounding stock 67 to Classic Tubes 3. The stock 67 is somewhat dark on the top end with beautiful, lush lows. It can be great on vocals, drum rooms, piano, horns, and just about anything that needs a vintage tone.

A recreation of a famous vintage Japanese tube microphone, the FG-37A is one of the most flattering sounding microphones in the entire collection. The midrange is sculpted in a way that makes almost any voice pleasing. It also sounds great on acoustics, drum overheads and piano.

This is the first VMS model of a classic ribbon mic, but in cardioid form. Since this is classic TUBES 3, Slate added a custom tube stage to give the mic model some more tube harmonics and subtle saturation. This mic is great on anything that needs ultrasmooth vintage vibes.

This is the second model of a famous old German Tube mic. It is similar in nature to the stock 47, but has a slightly smoother upper midrange and top, along with a fatter low mid. This mic will be perfect for vintage vocal sounds and will sound great on a kick drum or bass cabinet.

The VMS is a hybrid system that utilizes an extremely transparent condenser microphone, a sonically neutral preamp and state-of-the-art digital processing suite that recreates the tone of classic microphones and preamps. The Virtual Microphone System breaks down the wall standing between audio engineers and expensive world-class audio tools.
