Has any of you compared the Royer's 121 or 122 to the RODE NTR ?
Grammy winning producer/engineer Ross Hogarth records Rock Star Supernova winner Lukas Rossi's "Dreamer" with drummer Kenny Aronoff, using Royer ribbon microphones
OK, Ive been looking at the Royer R-121 ,
Just before I purchase it, tell me something else that could be better
and why, because this is probably a one shot at a mic for vocals .
I ve been looking around for a primarily vocal mic that doesnt distort
Have a decent preamp ADL 7600 and just need a mic that will
complement and it does not matter if it is a one trick pony, as long as it does a great job .
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 but I wanted to get the tone from the get go. The winner was a KM84 -> shadowhills. When I played rhythm the 57 was superior but solo parts the km 84 was awesome. I am thinking it is time to open this can of worms again.
If phantom power was accidentally left on will it mess up the mic? Thanks
I am looking to buy a good vocal mic priced around $1000. I have heard so many good things about both of these mics but i do not know which way to go. i live in a small town in south GA so i can't really rent either of these mics and research myself so if i buy it would be a blind purchase. I would be mainly using this mic on vocals but i would also like a good mic for acoustics and possibly even electric guitar cabinets but that isn't necessary.
Hello everyone, I new, just bought a mbox2 to get my feet wet in recording. Down the road, I plan to buy a power mac and a Royer R-121 and u87. As for mic preamp's:
Has anyone tried the following pres: Brent Averill's 1073, Chandler LTD-1, ams-neve's 1073, Aurora gtq2 or the 5012 portico?
I am looking buying one neve-type pre but I am hearing all kinds things about the above models. .hoping to decide on one soon.
Do the Royer R-121's come with an adapter so they fit on normal mic stands? My Royer shockmount doesn't fit on normal stands and I can't remember if one was shipped along with the shockmount
I have been thinking about buying a new mic lately as i haven't exactly gotten great tones from my current ones, a sm57 and an at3035. sometimes they are okay, but i keep hearing great things about the r-121. my question is, would this mic make a major difference in my sound even though i am using an mbox(which i love, but it may not necessarily have the best preamps). What's more important, the mic or the preamps? if i got the royer, would i only notice the difference if a had like a $2,000 mic preamp?
thanx for the help.
