Mind blowing!

Illusia Productions, 23.12.2016
Awesome product!
We were very iffy about it, could it really be that good, for this price? Yes. Yes, it is.

The VMS came well packed, as usual for Thomann.
In a little metal case you'll find the mic and shockmount, the preamp and the included PSU come in a separate package.

Installed the software, connected the mic > Preamp > Line-In on the interface and tested away.

Male vocals, female vocals, spoken / singing and acoustic guitar is what we've tested so far, outstanding recording quality.. for this price!

Now, the magic happens after the fact, though!
With the Classic Tubes 2 Collection software (free thus far) you'll get 8 mic models in total to choose from.

I'm sure you know the mics this is trying to re-create and I'm sure you don't have (m)any of them in your mic-closet, just as we don't ;-) Even if, no vintage u47 will sound like another u47 anyway.

But what really matters is, they all sound great, some will fit the recording task better than the others for sure. Which is not only a huge time saver when selecting the right mic for the performance, but also a huge money saver. Now you can find the right mic for the task via mouse click within a second and you have a huge selection right at your fingertip.

I honestly don't see a reason to use any other mic for a vocalist ever again. The recordings are sounding very natural without the VMC plugin (perhaps even sterile), I can see myself using this mic for a lot of things in the future as it leaves your several options to shape your sound afterwards.

Most likely will get us another one and try it on overheads / rooms, stereo acoustic instrument recordings, etc.

The products are very sturdy and feel like quality, not cheap at all.
The ML1 is actually quite big and heavy, the VMS ONE (preamp) is easy to operate, build well and feels like it won't break anytime soon.

BTW: Thomann delivery hit a new record and arrived 23.12.2016, one day before xmas ;-)
Thank you for that, Merry Christmas.

Conclusion: 5/5
Get them before it takes forever again to restock!
There's a reason people go nuts about 'em!

No Brainer

Paul8081, 16.11.2016
Odds are if you are looking at this review, you already know the score. The VMS emulates many classic microphones well beyond the budget of most of us.

Does it achieve it's aim? Well I have only ever used a U47 once so aside from that I have nothing to compare, but many studios have done shoot outs and the consensus seems to be yes.

I will just say it is simply the best mic I have owned well worth the wait, and unfortunately that wait is common at the moment, the bonus though is Slate are giving both the second and upcoming third mic pack away free as compensation to customers.

The pre amp doubles as an instrument input as well as the mic input, handy.

The mic comes in a nice case, a bit of a shame the pre amp is packaged separately and not in the case, but no big deal.

So far I have used it for vocals, a rap, acoustic guitar and Bass via the pre. Delighted with the end result.
