TAGGED: R84 Series

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
Kristian Nord / The Great Escape

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

Artists
Manny Nieto / Health, Breeders

“The R84 is aces across the board with sound quality. Musically capturing exactly what I’m looking for and built like a tank!”

Artists
Justin Meldal-Johnsen / Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Air

“My N22 has turned out to be an incredible bass amp mic…to such an extent that I won’t record bass without it.”

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
Lynn Fuston / 3D Audio, inSync

“The R84 has made a ribbon believer out of me. Never before have I heard a ribbon mic sound so good on so many things: strings, brass, acoustic guitar, choir, even solo voice.”

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
Jacob LaCally / The California Honeydrops

“The 44 is easily my favorite mic for capturing a true representation of any instrument. I find that it has the ability to grab every detail of an entire drum kit without the need for any close mics.”

Artists
Jonathan Clay / Jamestown Revival

“We credit much of our sound in the studio to AEA microphones. They have shaped our sound from the very beginning, and without them our record wouldn’t have had quite the same character and earnestness. “

Artists
Mike Schuppan / M83, Paramore

“These have become my desert island ribbons.”

Artists
Morten Lindberg / Lindberg Lyd, 2L

“The N8 provides the best focus mics I’ve ever heard; they blend into the main array as butter.”

Artists
Danny Blume / Elysian Fields, Iggy Pop

“[The R84] is one of my top go-to mics for lead vocals, especially highly dynamic singers who can generate some harsh upper midrange in louder sections.”

Artists
Daniel Shores / Sono Luminus

“The silky and transparent sound of the N8 makes it the perfect microphone for recording acoustic music. The N8’s almost crystalline quality allows you to forget the microphone is even there.”

Artists
Robert Burger / Iron & Wine, Tin Hat Trio

“My absolute favorite combo on my upright pianos, mallet instruments, and reed organs are an R88 with the RPQ.”

Artists
Chris Eldrige / Punch Brothers, The Seldom Scene

“I’m loving the R84 – it’s such a great sounding mic! Music just sounds good through it.”

Artists
Joe Chiccarelli / The White Stripe, The Strokes

“I used the AEA R84 on recent sessions for vocal [and guitars]. It just kept on sounding better and better. It’s very bright and open with an extended low end…”

Artists
Terri Winston / WAM, Kronos Quartet, Angelique Kidjo

“Women’s Audio Mission’s studio clients are incredibly diverse and the AEA R84 and N22 are in constant use. They get a ton of love here at WAM. From miking up loud guitar amps to string quartets to horn sections to delicate instruments…”
