The Slate Digital VMS Vintage Edition Kit is the complete package. Offering everything you need to make amazing recordings and look good doing it, this bundle includes the VMS-ONE Preamp and our award-winning ML-1 Modeling Microphone—featuring an all-new body inspired by the legendary Telefunken U47.


Back in the day studios had to invest tens, if not hundreds of thousands of dollars in vintage tube mics and analog consoles with high-quality preamps. Today we can recreate the sounds of some of the most iconic microphones and preamps of all time using a single microphone and preamp with Virtual Microphone System.


  • ML1-V mic
  • VMS-ONE Preamp with PSU
  • Wooden storage case
  • Travel case
  • Shock mount
  • Classic Tubes 1 & 2 + VPC software card


While the ML-1 Vintage Edition is specially designed for emulation in the VMS system, it can also be used on its own as a super-clean, high resolution, sonically neutral large diaphragm condenser mic. Offering a true “blank canvas” frequency response, the ML-1 Vintage Edition features a shock-mounted, gold sputtered, 6-micron capsule and a state of the art FET circuit path.


The VMS-ONE preamp utilizes state-of-the-art amplifiers to produce the purest, most linear signal possible, giving the Virtual Microphone System the ability to transform your recordings with hyper-accurate reproductions of classic microphones and preamps. While the VMS-ONE was designed to work in conjunction with the Virtual Microphone System, it can also be used as a high-resolution stand-alone preamp for capturing crisp, clean recordings with any mic in the locker.

Classic Tubes 1 & 2:

The ML-1 Vintage Modeling Microphone includes Classic Tubes 1 and 2 software featuring the following microphone emulations:

  • FG-47: 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 10 kHz 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.
  • FG-800: 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.
  • FG-251: 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. The intensity is really fun with this one. This mic pairs well with both preamps, so try them both using the VMR A->B system.
  • 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. Definitely gonna be a favorite!
  • 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. This is one of the best sounding vocal mics I've ever heard.
  • 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, piano mic, and is probably my favorite on toms.


  • FG-73: The FG-73 preamp module is modeled after one of the most famous discrete solid state preamps in the industry, made in Britain and used on countless recordings. It has a bold, present and warm sound that works great on any audio source – even full mixes.
  • FG-76: The FG-76 preamp module is modeled after a vintage German tube preamp that has been used on many classic recordings. It has a thick and colorful tone that can make tracks and mixes sound more ‘alive’. The bottom-end saturates in a very unique and musical way, making it a great module for bass guitar and kick drum tracks.
