To commemorate 25 years of selling ribbon microphones, Audio Engineering Associates has created the R84 Silver Limited Edition (SLE). Two years ago, AEA made a chrome R84 to display at trade shows. Due to popular demand, they have decided to create a limited edition run of them in honor of serving the ribbon microphone market for twenty-five years. The R84 SLE is limited to a run of only 125 units. AEA R84 Studio Ribbon Microphone The AEA R84 is an affordable Large Ribbon Geometry (LRG) microphone suitable for use by the most demanding audio professional or hobbyist. Experienced users have discovered the R84 is an outstanding general-purpose microphone, ideally suited for solo and accent work. It is hard to find an application where this microphone doesn't shine. It is a fine example of the natural sound and figure-8 directional sensitivity a quality ribbon mic delivers.

  • Pure natural sound, just as you hear it when you're placing your microphone in the studio.
  • Quick smooth transients that capture the feeling of being there without sounding like a recording.
  • Extended bass and treble that captures the details without shoving anything in your face.
  • A figure-eight pattern that focuses your recording on the sound youwant.
AEA believes you will enjoy the confidence this mic inspires. It's a forgiving tool that makes your recording work easier, as it literally sounds good on everything. Try it first and you'll usually like it and find it sits well in the mix.
