The most versatile ribbon mic? | AEA KU5A

We are going to be doing a demo of this mic by recording a full song, and we will give you the multitracks as well so you can hear exactly how this mic sounds! The AEA KU5A is a ribbon microphone, but it has a much more extended high end that any other ribbon microphone I have ever used. It is warm, meaning it has low mids, and a full bodied sound down at the low end. Probably the most important difference between the KU5A and other ribbon microphones, though, is the fact that the KU5A is a super cardioid microphone, instead of a figure of 8. Most ribbon microphones are figure of 8 mics, meaning that when you put them up, you are hearing the back as well as the front. Since the KU5A is a super cardioid microphone, it is very focused in the front. This allows the microphone to reject bleed from other instruments, room reflections, and loud ambience in the studio and on stage. This microphone will work in both live and studio situations. I think that for a ribbon microphone, this could be one of the most versatile ribbon microphones out there! ❤️My Favorite Plugins: ➡️Waves MV2: ➡️Waves RBass: ➡️Renaissance Vox: ➡️Renaissance Compressor: ➡️Warren Huart IR Pack ➡️Warren Huart Kemper Pack ❤️GEAR: ➡️Stealth Sonics: ➡️UK Sound 1173: ➡️Apollo x16: ➡️Apollo Twin: Join the community here: Facebook Group Facebook Page: Instagram Twitter ❤️❤️Free 3 Part Mixing Course: Sign up here to get exclusive videos and content #ProduceLikeAPro #HomeRecording #MicDemo Giveaway Winners: Produce Like A Pro is a website which features great tips to help the beginning recordist make incredible sounding home recordings on a budget.

While we love our sizable collection of vintage ribbon #mics, we also rely heavily on a few modern standard-bearers like this AEA (ribbonmics) #R88 #stereo ribbon. . The R88 is a stereo microphone that’s designed to perform very similarly to a pair of RCA 44BX in #Blumlein configuration, and it is truly outstanding. It’s the MVP of many sessions here! . One of the unique advantages of ribbons as a #microphone technology is that the ribbon element can be tensioned with a very low self-resonance, away from #audio frequencies of interest. . The ribbons in the R88, for example, are tensioned at a precise 16.5 Hz—below the lower limit of human hearing. Condensers and moving-coil dynamics almost always require much higher self-resonances, which can influence the mic’s performance. . A good ribbon renders transients and midrange in a very natural and effortless way, and the low tuning is a big part of why. There are no in-band resonances to clutter things up. . We love the R88 on string ensemble, background vocal ensemble (with the vocal group positioned in a ring around the #microphone), drum overhead, and acoustic grand piano—provided you take care with positioning the mic’s inherent phase zones. . Really, anywhere you’d use a stereo pair of RCA 44s, you will love this mic (and benefit from the holographic imaging of its perfect coincident-stereo array). . There is really something about this #mic that brings with it a “right there in the room” sensation. It’s truly something to experience firsthand. . . . . . #aearibbonmics #ribbonmic #ribbonmics #wesdooley #microphone #stereomic #stereomicrophone #blumleinpair #blumlein #alanblumlein #recording #studiogear #recordinggear #bunkerstudio #musicproducer #studiorecording
