Introducing the Royer R-122 mkII
We’re pleased to announce the release of the R-122 MKll. Based on the popular R-122, this phantom-powered ribbon mic includes a first-ever -15 dB pad and a bass cut filter, greatly enhancing the mic’s flexibility in the studio and on live stages.
The R-122 MKll’s switchable -15 dB pad is placed before the microphone’s electronics, so high SPL applications like cranked up close-miked electric guitars can be recorded with no distortion from the microphone. Engaging the -15 dB pad actually reduces the MKll’s output to 2 dB lower than our non-powered R-121!
The Bass Cut:
The switchable bass cut filter starts at 100 Hz and rolls off at 6 dB per octave. It’s very musical sounding and allows for easy elimination of bass buildup due to proximity effect — highly effective on acoustic instruments and vocals
David Royer’s other microphone company, Mojave Audio (which actually precedes Royer Labs), recently improved the suspension material used for their large-membrane condenser microphones (as well as the Royer R-101).
An early adopter of David Royer’s designs, legendary engineer Bob Clearmountain still uses his 18-year old Mojave prototype while recording as shown in the video below:
