Slate Digital ML-2 Small Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
Currently out of stock more stock due 20th October.
Make It Sound like Any Classic Mic You Want
As part of Slate Digital's Virtual Microphone System, the ML-2 small-diaphragm modeling microphone is your gateway to the sound of legendary microphones used on classic recordings. This ultra-linear, sonically neutral microphone captures even the loudest sound sources with clinical precision — the perfect blank canvas to use with Slate Digital's microphone emulations. Its compact size allows you to place the Slate Digital ML-2 in tighter spots than you can with their ML-1 large-diaphragm mic, but gives you the same sonic flexibility during tracking and mixdown when used with a Slate Digital VMS-One mic preamp.
Built-in mod switch allows you to record loud sources with zero distortion
Recording engineers know most small-diaphragm mics will audibly distort in front of loud sound sources, but the Slate Digital ML-2 modeling mic has a built-in modification to get around that reality of physics. Flipping the switch simultaneously pads the input circuit as well as re-polarizes the capsule. This gives you the additional headroom you need to record louder sources like close-miked drums without distortion.
Combine with Slate Digital's VMS-One mic preamp for unlimited sonic options
The Slate Digital ML-2 modeling mic is designed to be the perfect match for VMS-One mic preamps. This delivers a coloration-free signal that, when routed through Slate's VMS microphone/preamp modeling software, gives you a staggering selection of microphone models ranging from coveted tube classics (the FG-47 and FG-251) to a modern ultra-fidelity condenser (the FG-800). Slate's Virtual Preamp Collection includes the FG-73, modeled after a legendary British discrete solid-state console preamp; and the FG76, modeled after a classic vintage tube pre.

In December 2017, we went to Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville Tennessee to do something pretty groundbreaking. http://slatedigital.com/vrs-experience/ For the first time ever, with the help of pro engineer Jeff Juliano, world class drummer Nir Z, and artist Brennin Hunt, we conducted the first ever Virtual Recording Studio session. Using only Slate Digital VMS ML-1 and ML-2 modeling microphones into the Slate Digital VRS8 interfaces, we recorded Brennin’s song, “Alone Together.” We monitored through the dozens of virtual microphone and preamp emulations due to the VRS8 low latency monitoring capabilities. Then Steven mixed it using the virtual analog plugins in the Slate Everything Bundle.
