TAGGED: N8

Artists
Jamie Mefford / Nathaniel Rateliff, Jamestown Revival

“They rarely get unplugged, but instead move around the room as tracking happens…”

Artists
Mark Egan / Pat Metheny, Elements

“…I suspect there isn’t a sound an AEA can’t conquer. I won’t do a session without them.”

Artists
Jeremy Zuckerman / Legend of Korra, Echo Society

“I use the N8 and N22 on just about everything at this point. Their silky, smooth, yet detailed sound gets me a great recording that sits well in the mix every time, whether I’m recording strings, guitar, piano, winds, voice…”

Artists
Steve Albini / Nirvana, Pixies, Breeders

“Whatever, these mics are terrific and I like them a lot.”

Artists
Adam Granduciel / The War On Drugs

“The N8’s and the N22’s have become pretty much the standard for both the band’s touring set up and day to day recording in my studio.”

Artists
Darrell Thorp / Radiohead, Beck, Paul McCartney

“[The N8] has depth, detail, and bottom end for days. So much focus and tone from one phantom powered ribbon mic…”

Artists
Douglas Charles Showalter / Cam

“I can’t say enough great things about how much of a workhorse [the N22] has been in my studio.”

Artists
Josh Block / Leon Bridges

“The KU4 is honest, exactly where it needs to be while retaining a euphoric quality that’s hard to replicate with anything else.”

Artists
Chris Allen / Sear Sound Studios

“Their size, shape, and weight make them far easier to place than the bulkier ribbons I’m used to. The N8s are the closest thing to a perfect ribbon mic I’ve heard.”

Artists
Mike Cottone

“As a trumpet player, there is no better choice than a ribbon microphone…”

Artists
Aaron Sterling

“If you come to my studio, you’ll find the N8 situated right above my head as a mono overhead mic and the R84 next to my desk as an all purpose percussion mic…”

Artists
Chris Koltay / War On Drugs, Deerhunter

“AEA mics are my first line of defense in the war against boring, sterile sounds. You will not find a finer example of the intersection of craftsmanship and sonic truth.”

Artists
David Gaume / Local Natives, Autolux

The [N22 and N8] seem to pick up pleasing character and intimacy to sources while leaving out the squirrely harshness of guitar amps and shrillness of cymbals.

Artists
Karl Latham

“AEA Microphones, specifically the N8 Stereo Pair, coupled with the RPQ2, give me the exact warmth, transparency and detail that I had been searching for!”

Artists
Greg Wells / Keith Urban, Katy Perry

“The R88 is a magic microphone and captures music in a unique way that I’ve come to rely on. I use it on drums, acoustic guitar, piano, and any instrument I want to sound like it’s in the room with the listener.”

Artists
Daniel Rosenboom / Star Wars, Orenda Records

“Whether I’m at any one of the major Hollywood scoring stages or in a small or home studio, I record with AEA ribbon mics in almost every session.”

Artists
Julian Cisneros / RED Digital Cinema

“AEA Microphones, specifically the N8 Stereo Pair, coupled with the RPQ2, give me the exact warmth, transparency and detail that I had been searching for!”

Artists
Greg Curtis / The Bridge Recording

“What I like about the KU4s is that they are a rendition of the originals that leaves nothing to be desired.”
