Why Have One Mic When You Can Have Them ALL!

The VMS Virtual Microphone System 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 collapses the wall standing between audio engineers and expensive world-class audio tools, allowing access to the virtual microphone locker of your dreams at an affordable price.

ML-1 Large-Diaphragm Modeling Microphone
The ML-1 microphone is the centerpiece of the Virtual Microphone System. This large-diaphragm mic has a shock-mounted, gold sputtered, 6-micron capsule and a state of the art FET circuit path that ensures the most linear, flat, and clean 'blank canvas' response. Combined with the Slate Digital tube microphone modeling software, it can replicate some of the most classic microphones in recording history.

VMS-ONE Single-Channel Preamp
The VMS ONE Mic Pre is a fully linear, totally transparent microphone preamp with impeccable phase response designed to be used with the VMS Modeling system. It is also capable of standalone operation.

The VMS-ONE preamp ensures that your A/D converter sees the flattest signal possible from the ML-1 microphone. It utilizes state-of-the-art amplifiers to produce the purest and most linear signal possible, giving the VMS plugin module the ability to transform your recordings with hyper-accurate reproductions of classic microphones and preamps.

Included Microphone Models
FG-47 recreates the sound of one of the most famous vintage tube microphones in history. It has a thick and full-bodied low end, rich and present mid-range and smooth top-end. This microphone sounds great on lead vocals, but also sounds incredible as a kick-drum mic, room mic, guitar mic and on horns and strings
FG-M7 takes one of the most famous dynamic vocal mics used in the studio by artists like Michael Jackson and adds the tube stage of the classic 47, making it extremely punchy and crisp, with incredible mids that cut through the mix.
FG-800 recreates the sound of the most popular tube mic, known for being the go-to choice for pop and hip hop vocalists. It's extremely bright and airy, but with a warm low-end. Using this mic on vocals will give you an instant polished 'pop' sound. Also a great choice for overheads and acoustic guitar.
FG-800M emulates an older Japanese tube mic, and is slightly fatter and darker than the standard FG-800. If you love the FG-800 but require a more rounded sound, this is your best choice.

It's one of the most in-demand lead vocal mics on the planet, known for being crisp, warm and flattering on a variety of voices.

FG-67 emulates a vintage German classic known for being slightly dark, bold and thick. This mic is amazing on vocals, rooms, horns and piano.

Virtual Preamps

The FG-76 preamp module is modeled after a vintage German tube preamp that has been used on many classic recordings.
