SCV Distribution have announced a new partnership with software and modelling microphone company Slate Digital, and will now be handling retail distribution of all of the company’s plug-ins and microphone products for the UK and Ireland.
Founded in 2010, Slate Digital have built up an extensive range of analogue emulation plug-ins, with their painstaking approach to modelling promising to deliver authentic-sounding alternatives to a wide range of sought-after vintage gear. In addition to recreating old classics, the company also offer a variety of tools that focus on more modern processing techniques, offering solutions to vocal tuning with MetaTune, heavy-handed dynamics processing with MO-TT and their latest offering, Storch Filter, a multi-effects plug-in created with award-winning producer Scott Storch.
The Virtual Microphone System (VMS) then extends the power of Slate Digital’s plug-in technology to a hybrid system that includes two specially designed microphones, the ML-1 and ML-2. Combined with a modelling emulation processing suite, the microphones provide users with access to recreations of a huge number of classic microphone and preamp designs. The ML-1 and ML-2 are large- and small-diaphragm designs respectively, providing users with a wide range of emulations that are capable of tackling a variety of recording tasks.
“SCV Distribution are delighted to welcome the Slate Digital product range into our portfolio of distributed brands. SCV have long been admirers of Slate Digital’s innovation within the microphone modelling and emulation realm. We share in their ethos and mission to break down potential cost barriers between producers and access to the microphone locker of their dreams, so this exciting new partnership could not come at a better time!” - Ian Young, Managing Director, SCV Distribution
