Grammy-winning Classical Engineer Robert Friedrich gives us an in-depth look at the recording techniques used when recording "The Carnival Of The Animals" with the San Diego Symphony Orchestra. Friedrich relied heavily on ribbon microphones to achieve the desired sound quality.
Front of House Engineer Jimbo Neal takes us behind the scenes with the Brian Setzer Orchestra, showing how he uses Royer and Mojave Audio microphones to get Brian's live sounds.

Love this Video and R-122. Cello sounds great and the info in here is worth watching.
Engineer/Producer Ron Searles records cellist Winona Zelenka, playing J.S Bach Cello Suites.
Ron used 3 R-122 Royer ribbon microphones in a Decca Tree formation to capture the essence of this 1707 Guarnerius...
micing guitar cab with a Royer R-121 and a Shure SM57. Special attention to phase alignment and mic placement technique.
In case you haven't heard Royer is having a factory rebate through September 30th. Pretty nice deal if you are in the market for a ribbon mic. $75 off an R-101, $100 off an 121, $125 off 122 and $200 of an R122v. I think it's per mic if you by a matched pair. They have a rebate form to fill out...
So my Royer SF-12 came today. I'm in love. Tried it on drum overhead. Just the damned stereo mic 2 feet over the center of the kit in Blumlein. I'm blown away. A beautiful image of the whole kit. Best picture of the cymbals I've heard. Lovely natural sound of the toms. For some genres I...
This can be an open thread on any aspect of Royer ribbon mics, but I'm particularly interested in hearing comments on the differences within the current lineup:
R-122 (phantom powered)
SF-24 (phantom powered)
I'm personally following Fab Dupont's recording and mixing tricks, specifically hybrid recording and how he does it.
I just finished watching this video on how he used Royer mics to record some of Will Knox songs. It sounds really good and I hope you enjoy this. I love the sound of this...
I want to connect Feedback destroyer(Behringer DSP1124P) to the 24Channel mixer in order to eliminate feedbacks on all mics (6 in all).I am not using any compressor. The mixer image below is a replica of my own except that mine has 24 channels.
Each channel on the mixer has MIC IN(XLR), LINE...
The API 512c gave me a knew appreciation for the sm57. I've been pretty well been using this combination for the last couple years exclusively. As I recording some guitar solo's with an es 335->mesa single rec I was finding the tone just to fizzy. Eq would basically get me where I need to go...
I've discussed this more than once but wasn't sure what mics I'd settle on and know how the room would sound with people in it until yesterday.

How many times have we seen PA systems take a hit, mic stands fall and newbies blow into mics.
You'll love how this conductors saved a $4500 Royer sf 24 from disaster
Like many of us here, I'm all jacked up on ribbon mics and especially Royer for my personal taste. The new R 101 has been out for a while now. Has anyone had the opportunity to demo it? How do you like it?
Let us know after the AES show in San Fransisco.
