The R-122 was the world's first phantom powered ribbon microphone, delivering all of the warm, very natural tone of Royer's R-121 ribbon mic, but with 15 dB more Gain and Impedance Matching circuitry that allows the ribbon to operate at its full potential regardless of the preamplifier you plug it into! The R-122 Live takes that same groundbreaking design and pairs it with a thicker ribbon that's suitable for live use.

Ribbon-Velocity Live Microphone
The Royer R-122 Live - like most ribbons - sports a figure 8 polar pattern. Its sensitivity is roughly equal to a good dynamic mic, and it exhibits a warm, realistic tone and flat frequency response. When it came to design time, Royer threw out the molds and took a fresh approach to ribbons using advanced materials and cutting edge construction techniques. The Royer R-122 Live again redefines ribbon microphones, bringing the Royer sound that's quickly becoming legendary to live stages everywhere.

Royer ribbon mics are figure-8, picking up sound from the front and rear of the microphone, and rejecting sounds approaching from a) the left and right sides of the mic, b) the top of the mic, and c) the bottom of the mic. These are extremely effective dead zones that engineers use to isolate instruments by positioning the mics in such a way that the dead zones face, and cancel, offending sound sources.

Minimal Off-Axis Coloration
There's a lot of sound on a live stage and you can't entirely control for off-axis information getting into microphones, even ribbons. Most microphones color off-axis information in highly unflattering ways, which is why bleed can sound so nasty. Ribbons don't color off-axis information, so any bleed that manages to get into your onstage Royers will sound natural, not harsh or colored.
