Slate Digital intros Virtual Microphone System

Slate Digital VMS

Slate Digital has introduced the Virtual Microphone System, a new microphone system which includes two microphones, a dual pre-amp converter, and a software plug-in module.

Using a super clean and transparent microphone and pre-amplification chain in conjunction with The VMS software, Slate recreates the color and character of some of the most beloved classic mic’s and pre-amps used in the recording industry.

Switch between a virtual 47 and a ribbon 121 and try them through different preamps. Or put a virtual 57 on a snare drum or guitar amp. Zero latency means you can record directly into your DAW using these virtual mics and preamps. And do it all at a fraction of the price!

Slate Digital does it again with another groundbreaking product from the guys who really love this stuff.

The VMS will be demonstrated at the Winter NAMM 2014, booth #6921.
