Key Info

The Slate Digital ML-1 is a Studio Modelling Condenser Microphone that features Premium FET circuitry that provides crystal clear sound.

Premium FET circuitry provides crystal clear sound

The ML-1 utilizes advanced technology to provide superior audio. The large-diaphragm design features classic-style FET circuitry combined with a gold-sputtered 6-micron capsule which delivers an ultra-linear frequency response, providing the perfect input sound for advanced mic modelling techniques. This means you can tap into the sound and style of classic, legendary and modern-day microphones to achieve the sound you need. With eight microphone models to choose from with a range of in-software controls, you can shape your sound with absolute precision.

Virtual Microphone System - latency-free processing

With the accompanying software, the ML-1 microphone allows you to tap into the sound of a huge range of classic microphone styles, ranging from legendary vintage mics to modern-day classics with the simple click of a mouse. Using the VMS software alongside a low-latency interface allows you to eliminate latency when recording; allowing you to hear yourself using any of the mic models in real-time. The ML-1 comes complete with eight mic models (see below for full list), but they also offer a range of additional microphone models which can be purchased via expansion packs (sold separately) to expand your tonal options.

Advanced sound shaping - complete with powerful analog preamp plugins

The ML-1 comes equipped with two remarkable emulated analog preamp plugins, FG-73 and FG-76, designed to elevate your tone-shaping capabilities. The FG-73 preamp is inspired by one of the most renowned discrete solid-state preamps in the world, known for its bold, warm, and present sound that has graced countless recordings. This preamp delivers stunning results, adding depth and richness to your audio tracks.

On the other hand, the FG-76 preamp is modeled after a vintage German tube pre that has been featured on hundreds of classic albums. This preamp infuses your tracks with an abundance of energy, providing a thick, colourful tone and tasteful low-end saturation that enhances the performance of kicks and bass lines.
