Vorsis M1 One Channel Digital Mic/Voice Processor


Voices sound larger than life

The M-1 is a flexible digital microphone processor. It offers unlimited presets, security and networkability in an all-digital framework, with parameters that are easy to set up. Either from the front panel, or from the GUI – all parameters of the M-1 can be controlled to give each voice talent his or her own personal sound at the press of a button.

The M-1 microphone processor is equipped with a Super-Quiet (SQ) microphone preamplifier featuring an extremely low noise floor, very wide dynamic range, faithfully accurate transient response, and ruler flat frequency response. Operating in harmony with high quality 24-bit A/D converters and a 96kHz base sample rate, the M-1 adds absolutely no undesired coloration to the signal and faithfully preserves the sound of any microphone and talent combination.

The features on the M-1 include four-band parametric EQ, high- and low-pass filters, de-esser and expander and of course, our proprietary Vorsis dynamics processing. The unit comes loaded with factory designed presets, and designing your own is easy, thanks to features such as “Quick Save” and ‘Quick Compare” that allow you to toggle back and forth between different presets as you adjust them. From one GUI, an entire group of M-1’s can be controlled, making multiple microphone processor management easy.

Wheatstone-designed Dynamics Control

A high performance de-esser and a smooth sounding, very low distortion compressor/limiter dynamics control section round out the M-1’s offerings to create powerful and authoritative presence on production or on-air microphones.

Wheatstone-designed Equalization

Very high quality parametric and shelving equalization is available to sweeten the sound of any microphone as desired without adding noise or undesirable artifacts to the signal.

Wheatstone Processing Presets

A variety of ready-to-use factory processing presets are provided, carefully tailored for different processing goals and formats. You can select a factory preset, confident that it will sound great just as it is. Or use a factory preset as a starting point and create a custom sound for each announcer, then save the new settings as a personalized user preset. In a facility with multiple microphone processors, presets saved in one unit can be easily copied to the others.
