For those craving digital emulations of classic microphones through a mic that looks and feels like the real thing, Slate Digital has a surprise for you. Steven Slate has announced today that Slate Digital will be releasing a brand new version of the Slate VMS ML-1 modeling microphone with a new vintage-esque body. The Slate Digital VMS ML-1 Vintage Edition takes inspiration from the Neumann U47's classic body, as the size and material of the original ML-1 has been updated. The microphone's new brass body lends size and weight to the microphone, while the new shockmount is a stronger option for carrying the VMS ML-1 Vintage Edition's heftier size. How has the rest of the VMS ML-1 changed? Good news, it hasn't! The VMS ML-1 Vintage Edition still features the same ultra-linear microphone circuit as the original and comes with the Classic Tubes 1 and 2 software that has made the modeling microphone such an instant classic.
