Whether for an in-studio session or an on-stage "crowd mic", the room mic needs to clearly capture the sound of the space around it. Typically blended with close-mic tracks, it can often be the perfect "glue" that holds a mix together.
"The mic is an absolute pleasure - easily competes with mics at twice the price point. Really warm and rich, yet plenty of high end sparkle. While some folks might consider it primarily a vocal mic, I've had some of my best results on acoustic instruments."
- Bennett Dean Lewis, Guitarist (of Montreal, Lera Lynn) - sE Artist
"...in comparison with a number of other well‑known ribbon mics in the tests at AIR, the RNR1 presented a real sense of 'air' and definition. At the same time, though, the character of the sound was unmistakably 'ribbon' — warm and comfortable to listen to, with a smooth, non‑fatiguing character."
