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 at Sweetwater 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.
