The R 1 MKII is a high-quality vintage style ribbon microphone. It offers the unique and natural sound that has been available in classical microphones like the RCA 44 and 77 that are still used to make high quality recordings today, after almost 70 years. The R1 Mk2 is very well suited for the recording of most sound sources like vocals, acoustic instruments, strings, horns, orchestras and choral groups and many live sound applications. The Figure-8 pattern of the R1 MKII gives you the ability to separate sound sources by placing the unwanted ones in the side zero pick-up directions. Placing the unwanted ones towards the sides of the R1 MKII will remove most of the direct sound from the sound source. The R1 MKII will still pick up that source from the reverberant eldin the recording room though. Due to the small width of the ribbon, the horizontal pick-up pattern is very wide. It is much wider compared to a large capsule condenser microphone.

Features:

  • The unmatched natural and musical sound of a classical ribbon microphone
  • A stunning realism with the feeling of "being- there"
  • The typical large and mellow ribbon sound quality with a very smooth top end and an extended low end
  • A fast and life-like transient reproduction
  • An ultra-high SPL capability, 160 dB SPL (1% THD @ 1000 Hz) and a very good sensitivity for a ribbon microphone
  • A Figure-8 directional pattern for wide sweet spots both in the front and in the back of the microphone. Zero spots towards the sides
  • A 50 mm long ribbon made of 2 microns thick
  • Includes travel case, microphone cable, and owner's manual
