The Royer R-122 is a compact, monaural, phantom powered ribbon microphone - the first ribbon microphone of its kind. Sonically similar to our R-121, the R-122 exhibits a flat frequency response and a well balanced, panoramic soundfield, but it is 13 dB more sensitive, its transient response is faster and its electronics provide an optimum load to the ribbon element at all times. Like the R-121, its ability to withstand high SPL’s makes it ideal for applications that were previ- ously considered off limits to ribbon microphones.
The R-122’s active electronics produce an output comparable to studio condenser microphones and provide an optimum impedance to the ribbon element, preventing overdamping of the ribbon element and assuring consistent microphone performance. The high gain and low output impedance of the R-122 allow it to operate with any micro- phone preamplifier with phantom power, including those of nominal gain and input impedance characteristics. It is also well suited for use with long cable runs, which can be helpful in live situations.
The R-122 utilizes a low mass, 2.5-micron, pure (99.99%) aluminum ribbon element. The R-122's unique, patented offset-ribbon transducer assembly incorpo- rates rare earth Neodymium magnets in a specially designed flux frame, which forms a powerful magnetic field while reducing unwanted stray magnetic radiation. The smooth frequency response and phase linearity of the R-122, coupled with its sophisticated active electronics system, enable the R-122 to deliver a consistent natural acoustic performance with stunning realism. Frequency response is excel- lent regardless of the angle of sound striking the ribbon, and off-axis coloration is negligible.
The R-122’s offset-ribbon design positions the ribbon element toward the front of the microphone body, which allows for high SPL handling on the front (logo) side and the option of a slightly brighter response when recording lower SPL sound sources on the back side (3 feet and closer; phase reversed in this position).
