Slate Digital VRS-8 & ML-2
The big news from Steven Slate’s crew is the VRS-8 audio interface, billed as a “Virtual Recording Studio”. The device features eight channels and a custom Low-Latency Native (LLN) chipset, which promises a round-trip time as low as 0.7ms (at 96kHz). You can plug any mic/line device into the VRS-8, but each channel incorporates Slate’s VMS Ultra Linear preamps, designed for use with their VMS microphones, allowing you to apply numerous mic models in software. Price and availability are TBC.
