AEA N8 Phantom-powered ribbon microphone

Classic ribbon sound for your recordingsThe N8 shares the same Big Ribbon as the R44, so you can be sure that you are getting true, quality ribbon transducer response and behavior. But the N8 is more than just an “R44 lite”, and has a voice that’s truly its own. Using phantom-powered electronics and a custom German transformer, the N8 gives you extraordinary detail without distortion – it doesn’t just make great-sounding recordings, it’s a mic that gives you the same sound you hear when you’re standing next to your source! The aluminum ribbon gives you clear, warm sound for your recordings while giving you plenty output for effective processing. Versatile and durable recording toolFragile. If that’s the first thing that comes to mind, or even the second, when you talk about ribbon microphones, you’re living in the past. The N8 is designed to bring ribbon mic sound wherever you need it. Need detail and warmth from a string section? Done. You’ll capture the warmth of the cellos and the detailed highs of every violin. Clarity and response in your vocals? You got it! No muddy diaphragm you have to EQ the life into during mixdown. Want natural, focused, distortion-free sound for a remote recording? Here it is. Even over long cable runs, the N8 handles it all with ease. It’s the ribbon microphone that’s built to withstand the rigors of recording life, whether that’s in the corner of your bedroom, a professional tracking studio, or as a part of your mobile recording rig. AEA evolves the ribbon mic1998 saw a new player enter the ribbon microphone manufacturing game – AEA. Established by engineers and technicians that had been repairing classic RCA ribbon mics since before 1976, AEA set out to not just pay homage to, but to faithfully reproduce the sound and performance of the original RCA 44 ribbon microphone. And to the acclaim of former RCA engineers, they accomplished just that. The new designs, the Nuvo series N8 amongst them, impart the classic quality and response you only get from a ribbon transducer into your tracks by engineering them with the durability and versatility that you as a modern recordist demand. AEA N8 Ribbon Microphone Features:

  • Phantom powered electronics for optimal performance with any preamp
  • Unobtrusive looks mean you don’t have to sacrifice sound quality for video recordings
  • Uses the same Big Ribbon element as the R44 to give you classic ribbon response and sound
  • Includes protective sleeve for mic, stand clip, and a carrying case
