Surprenant et excellent
Antoine5150, 27.07.2011
· Assumed from Royer Labs R-121
Acheté depuis peu, c'est mon premier micro à ruban. Je cherchais un micro qui restituerait le mieux possible le son d'un ampli de guitare sans ce côté agressif du SM57 ou "sur-détaillé" d'un bon statique.
C'est incroyable, le R121 affiche une personnalité hors du commun : le son est ample précis, velouté et dénué de toute agressivité. La difficulté réside dans son placement optimal, il faut prendre un peu de temps pour le trouver. En studio, je le couple à un TLM103 qui va apporter un peu plus d'attaque, mais le mix comprend au final environ 70% de R121 et 30% de TLM103.
Testé sur un piano aussi, le Royer est parfait : sa direction en 8 procure un son large et encore une fois très doux sans être "sourd". Parfait pour palier à la brillance excessive de certains pianos comme les Yamaha C3 par exemple.
Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de le tester encore sur des cuivres ou des cordes. Il parait qu'il fait des merveilles là aussi.
Un excellent micro à la personnalité très très affirmée mais qui est un réel "plus" dans un parc studio.
Le seul point négatif : pas de suspension digne de ce nom fournie avec (juste une ptite pince). Dommage pour le prix...

Neues Leben für alle Tasks
Patrick432, 16.02.2013
· Assumed from Royer Labs R-121
Das Royer R-121 ist ein sensationelles Mikrofon. Wir empfehlen dieses für nahezu alle Anwendungen. Der Klang ist extrem Plastisch und natürlich ohne ungewollte Höhenstaffelungen. Nicht vergleichbar mit einem Kondensatormikrofon. Wer den Klang einmal schätzen gelernt hat, wird öfter zu diesem Mikrofon greifen.

Beachtet auch die angenehme unterschiedliche Höhenbalance bei 180Grad Drehung des Mikrofons.

Absolute Kaufempfehlung mit 5* von online-musikproduktion.com.

Las mejores guitarras que he grabado nunca
Pacochito, 12.12.2012
· Assumed from Royer Labs R-121
He probado muchos micros para grabar guitarras pero, hasta que me llegó el Royer R-121, no conseguí lo que andaba buscando.

La construcción del micro es fantástica y su presentación impecable. Viene en una caja de madera realmente bonita y robusta y con una funda de tela que sirve para protegerlo de golpes de aire cuando lo has sacado de la caja.

Soporta presión suficiente para utilizarlo frente a un amplificador de guitarra y aporta una suavidad en los agudos y una calidez que no he conseguido con otros micros. Además, hace una pareja fantástica con otros micros dinámicos, como el SM57.

El Royer R-121 es el mejor micro que he probado cuando quiero captar todo el detalle que proporciona el amplificador.

Lo he utilizado para grabar otras fuentes como voces o guitarras acústicas y se comporta muy bien gracias a que el sonido es distinto de cada una de sus caras. Usando la cara más brillante, hace un trabajo muy bueno con algunas voces o guitarras acústicas.

Mikrofon der Superlative
Laurent M., 17.03.2010
· Assumed from Royer Labs R-121
Brauche den R 121 ausschliesslich fuer Gitarrenaufnahmen, Fender Stratocaster und Vox AC30. Fantastischer Sound fuer Buehne und Studio. Die Ueblichen SM 57, Sennheiser 906 kommen da einfach nicht nahe. Warmer, clean sounds, wie man es eben Hoeren will.
