Milab VIP-60 Multi-pattern Large Membrane Condenser




12-Month Special Financing**


37 years after the introduction of its predecessor, the brand new VIP-60 boasts an updated capsule and optimized 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 recognize the unique sound with its ribbon-like warmth and sparkly highs – and, of course, the extremely smooth off-axis response

“It’s one of those mics that just seems to tune out the bad qualities of a source, without resorting to cheap tricks like exaggerating the top end.”–Sound on Sound(Gear Of The Year 2022

This is a microphone that has been designed to be the crown jewel of any studio, and it has the sparkly Nextel metallic finish to prove it (but is also available in black). The 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.

“The VIP-60 excelled [on vocals]. It was clear and full-bodied – articulate but not harsh. It certainly has a very clean top end presence and sounds wonderful soloed.”–Tape Op Magazin

The VIP-60 offers five different polar patterns and a selection of filters and pre-attenuation pads. It is delivered in an SKB 3i waterproof case with a Rycote InVision USM shockmount. Factory matched pairs are available

“The descriptive word I keep flashing on is intimate — especially on vocals, where it sounds like there is nothing between the singer and the mic, or when in a good room, nothing around the singer and the mic. All this to say, the VIP-60 is a gorgeously silky smooth and present vocal mic.–Recording Magazin

“The combination of onboard flexibility, professional sound quality, and its ability to handle heavy processing, all combine to make it one of the most versatile and useful mic releases in recent memory and a timely upgrade to a cult classic. Well worth the price of entry. –Mixdown Magazine
