Milab VIP-60 Multi-Pattern Condenser Mic
The VIP-60 has a new rectangular capsule and optimised circuitry to bring the sound of the classic VIP-50 into the 21st century.
The VIP-60 is the result of a multi-year R&D project where the goal was to reinvigorate what is arguably the most iconic Milab model ever produced, the VIP-50. The process included an 18-month testing period with feedback from a number of highly skilled sound engineers in Europe and the US. The result is a microphone which is technically superior to its predecessor – the most notable difference being the significant reduction in self-noise – but users of the VIP-50 will still recognise the characteristic Milab sound that made it a commercial success in the 80s and 90s.
The VIP-60 offers five different polar patterns and a selection of roll-off filters and pads. The microphone is delivered in a waterproof SKB 3i case together with a Rycote USM shockmount and an individual frequency chart. First deliveries are expected in January 2022.
