The VMS plug-in software lets you completely change the tonal characteristics of your recording, even after the fact. Choose from a massive collection of classic vintage mic and preamp models, as well as unique models for advanced recording techniques. You can re-create countless iconic recording chains most engineers can only dream of getting their hands on!
