Royer Labs Announces Live Series Ribbon Microphones

Royer Labs has announced a new Live Series of ribbon microphones. Starting with the company’s SF-24, R-121, and R-122 Ribbon Microphones as inspiration, Royer has created road-tested versions of these three models.

The SF-24 Live Phantom Powered Stereo Ribbon Microphone


Designed as a premium instrument for stereo and distance miking applications, the SF-24 Live represents a significant improvement for many ambient and critical applications due to the inclusion of Royer’s exclusive active electronics system for ribbon microphones. The SF-24 Live consists of two matched ribbon microphones placed one above the other, each aimed 45 degrees from center in the classic Blumlein configuration.

The R-121 Live Ribbon Microphone

The R-121 Live ribbon microphone exhibits a flat frequency response and a well-balanced, panoramic soundfield with the ability to withstand 135 dB SPL — designated for drum and guitar amp miking, as well as a variety of acoustic instruments.

The R-122 Live Active Ribbon Microphone

The Royer R-122 Live is the world’s first phantom powered, active ribbon microphone designed for live sound applications. It exhibits a flat frequency response and a well-balanced, panoramic soundfield with the ability to withstand 135 dB SPL — targeted at drum and guitar amp miking, as well as vocals and a variety of quieter instruments.

For Royer’s new SF-24 Live Phantom Powered Stereo Ribbon Microphone, the thickness of the two ribbons has been increased from 1.8 microns to 2.5 microns. With the R-121 Live and R-122 Live models, ribbon thickness has been increased from 2.5 microns to 4 microns. Live Series microphones are identified with an “L” on the top of the mic, and are priced the same as the studio versions.

Royer’s new Live Series Microphones are expected to debut in early 2008. SF-24 Live will retail for a mere $4,495, the R-121 Live comes in at $1,395, and the R-122 Live drops at $1,895. More information on the Royer Labs Live Series Ribbon Microphones.
