Milab VIP-60 premium large diaphragm condenser includes five polar patterns and a selection of filters and pre-attenuation pads.
37 years after the introduction of its predecessor, the brand new VIP-60 boasts an updated capsule and optimised circuitry to bring the sound of the classic VIP-50 into the 21st century.
How do you reinvigorate an iconic microphone without losing the “magic” in the process?
The Milab R&D team used a careful and meticulous approach which included an 18-month testing period with feedback from a number of highly skilled engineers in Sweden, Germany, the UK and the US. The result is a microphone with a superior performance when compared to its predecessor – most notably a significant reduction in self-noise – but fans of the VIP-50 will still recognise the unique sound with its ribbon-like warmth and sparkly highs – and, of course, the extremely smooth off-axis response.
VIP-60 will not only be the champion of the vocal booth, but will also do a beautiful job on many other sources. The unusual 500 and 200 Hz roll-off filters are useful for dealing with the proximity effect when close-miking sources like a guitar amp or a double bass.
