🔥 1 Full year of the All Access Pass
Every plugin we make. One of the world's best audio interfaces. The microphone used by Sting, Demi Lovato, Seal, Snoop Dogg & more.
All for just $1599 until January 1. (normally $1999!)
What do artists like Sting, Demi Lovato, Snoop Dogg, P. Diddy, Seal, and Celine Dion have in common?
They all love the ML-1 – and no wonder!
We built the ML-1 to be crystal-clear. That way, you can apply any of the 8 included world-famous vintage tubes to it. (Check them out below!)
Get an entire locker full of award-winning classic tube mics along with the audio interface they were built to work with.
The FG-47 recreates the sound of one of the most famous vintage tube microphones in the history of audio. It has a thick and full-bodied low end, rich and present mid-range, and smooth top end. This microphone sounds great on thick lead vocals, but also sounds incredible as a kick drum mic, room mic, guitar mic, and on horns and strings.
The FG-M7 takes one of the most famous dynamic vocal mics used in the studio by artists like Michael Jackson and adds the tube stage of the classic 47, making it extremely punchy and crisp, with incredible mids that cut through the mix. Definitely gonna be a favorite!
The FG-800 recreates the sound of one of the most popular modern tube mics, known for being the go-to choice for pop and hip hop vocalists. It’s extremely bright and airy, but with a warm bottom end. Using this mic on vocals will give you an instant polished ‘pop’ sound. However, this mic also sounds great on overheads and acoustic guitar.
The FG-251 recreates the sound of one of the most sought-after vintage tube mics in the industry. It’s one of the most in-demand lead vocal mics on the planet, known for being crisp, warm and flattering on a variety of voices. The FG-251 also sounds great on drums, guitars, acoustics, and just about anything else you put it on!
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.
The FG-269 emulates an extremely rare German classic that shares much of the same circuit as the 67, but with a different tube that makes it more open and clear. This is one of the best-sounding vocal mics we’ve ever heard.
The FG-12 emulates an Austrian classic known for being incredibly smooth and rich-sounding. We chose an absolutely incredible version of this mic to model – it’s the perfect representation of this famous tone.
The FG-67 emulates a vintage German classic known for being slightly dark, bold and thick. This mic is amazing on vocals, rooms, horns and piano, and it’s one of Steven’s favorite on toms.
Watch the VRS8 own a $50,000+ audio setup.
You heard it right. We spent three years relentlessly designing, sourcing, and perfecting a world-class, mastering-grade interface for producers everywhere.
Designed specifically for the ML-1 Virtual Microphone System, the VRS8 offers a crystal-clean response without adding coloration.
Combine that with its ultra low latency, and you now have the perfect system for remote tracking. (More about that below!)
The start of any signal chain is extremely important, which is why the VRS8 features EIGHT high bandwidth Ultra Linear microphone preamps. These are the same ‘blank canvas’ design as the VMS-One preamp from our award-winning Virtual Microphone System, enabling you to use our modeling software to recreate the authentic sound of famous microphones and preamps. Each preamp has its own high-quality metal knob, so you can easily set levels like a regular analog preamp – instead of using single logic controller knobs and menus, as some of our competitors have chosen to do.
The next step in the signal chain is the converter itself. Instead of using budget components, the VRS8 offers mastering-quality conversion by incorporating the newest AKM AK5578 converter chips – offering a whopping industry-best 124db of dynamic range on all 8 inputs!
The sound of an audio interface relies on much more than the converter chip itself – all of the components in the audio circuit have a direct result on the audio quality. Keeping to our “no compromise” design aesthetic, the VRS8 utilizes high-quality WIMA capacitors for the entire audio path.
Part of the goal behind creating the Virtual Recording Studio was to provide a near-realtime experience when using our analog modeled plugins while tracking. In order to achieve that goal, we created a new technology called LLN, which stands for “Low Latency Native”. LLN utilizes a custom hard-wired converter chipset, which reduces managed components in the audio path and allows an incredible 1 millisecond of latency at 96K (with a 32 sample buffer). This latency spec allows you to monitor through mic and preamp emulations while tracking, giving you the ability to hear your audio in context while still allowing you to change your mind later.
The audio clock is the heart of any recording interface, which is why it was important that the VRS8 had a killer clocking system onboard. We use satellite-grade XTC clocking technology, utilizing four temperature-compensated crystal oscillators for ultra-stable audio performance, keeping your audio jitter and distortion free.
Most engineers listen to music on headphones when working in the studio, but headphone amplifiers are the first place that manufacturers usually look to cut costs when building an interface. Instead of using typical designs that cost mere pennies, we use discrete amplifiers to ensure that your headphones sound robust and clear for all of your monitoring tasks.
Our “no compromise” design goal extended well into areas that other manufacturers simply ignore, which is evidenced by the VRS8’s native MIDI IO. Unlike USB MIDI interfaces (where MIDI information has to fight with your mouse, keyboard, and other USB traffic) MIDI IO on the VRS8 never touches the USB bus. You can count on hyper-accurate MIDI timing, and stuck sustain pedals when tracking keyboards and synths should become a thing of the past.
The channel strip of your dreams. Incredible classic compressors, EQs, tape machines, consoles, reverbs & more. Meticulously modeled after legendary analog hardware, this one plugin alone is worth thousands of dollars.
Our most advanced modern equalizer yet. Zero latency, lightning-fast response, MidSide EQ & presets built by pros like Mike Dean & Oak Felder.
The industry’s most game-changing analog synth. We’re talking about a whopping 6 Oscillators & over 800 mind-blowing presets. If you can dream it, you can bring to life with ANA.
A suite of nearly 30 jaw-dropping modules you can mix & match with ease. Compressors, saturators, delays, reverbs, & much more. Create amazing FX chains & make your mix leap out of the speakers.
Get over 100 models, including 32 amps, 39 cabinets, & 31legendary FX pedals and modules. Also includes the game-changing Rig Player to quickly load guitar setups on the fly.
