Beskrivelse

KU4 løfter arven efter den legendariske RCA KU3A, en unidirectional båndmikrofon, der oprindeligt blev designet til Hollywood filmstudierne.

KU3A var også kendt som M-100001 efter sit fremstillings nummer, og var RCA’s dyreste og mest eksklusive mikrofon. Mindre end 600 eksemplarer blev fremstillet.

Hvad gjorde KU3A så speciel? Den kombinerede den varme og silkebløde båndlyd fra en RCA 44 med et unidirectional mønster, et bredt sweetspot og mindre proximity effekt.

Det gav et væld af nye placeringsmuligheder, og blev en standard i filmstudier verden over.

Selv om kondensatormikrofoner blev den nye standard i 1960´erne, er bånd mikrofoner stadig værdsat af de mest erfarne producers, engineers og musikere i dag.

RCA KU3A er en meget sjælden mikrofon, et samlerobjekt, og kun få studier ejer dem. Muligheder for at arbejde med en god KU3A er begrænset.

Vi er stolte af at udvide dine muligheder med AEA KU4 som byder på et RCA bånd, KU3A dele og solid kvalitet, der holder til nutidens brug.

AEA KU4 Review
April 2012, Resolution, by John Thornton 
“AEA KU4” 
“Where the KU4 really comes into its own is in those situations where spill is an issue. I was forutnate to be able to trial the KU4 in an as-live session incorporating drums, bass, guitar and a small brass section. While acoustic screens provided a degree of control, a fig-8 ribbon for the brass would never have been an optimal solution – however much I like the sound. The KU4 here really delivered the goods. A combination of relative source level, the hypercardioid pick-up, the microphone’s SPL handling and overall sound all seemed to click into place. I’ve employed EV RE-2 in similar situations in the past but they just can’t match the KU4 for wonderful mid-range smoothness that flatters even the harshest sounding players.”

AEA KU4 Review
Feb 2012, Mix, by Kevin Becka 
“AEA KU4 Ribbon Microphone” 
“It’s hard not to rave about this mic. Yes, It’s expensive, but the feeling you get when you hear the KU4 in fron fo anything is the resaon audio engineers get out of bed in the morning…The KU4 has an intimate quality that I’ve not heard out of any other ribbon. Using the mic is a joy. For me, the only negative experience I had with KU4 was boxing it up to send back to Wes.”

AEA KU4 Review
Jan 2012, Pro Sound News Europe, by Russ Hepworth-Sawyer 
“AEA KU4 Ribbon Microphone” 
“Overall this is a mic that displays no pretense. What you capture is what you get. There’s very little hype of overriding ‘color’ to impose upon your recording other than ribbon warmth. Comparing the KU4 with the flood of new ribbons on the market, you quickly appreciate the RCA heritage and RCA sound the has endured for generations…”

AEA KU4 Review
Jan 2012, Sound On Sound, by Hugh Robjohns 
“AEA KU4 Supercardioid Ribbon Microphone” 
“The combination of classic ribbon smoothness with a near-cardioid pattern is a very beguiling permutation that enables the use of ribbon mics in situations that are normally inappropriate or too challenging. The KU4’s only practical imitation, really, is due to it’s size and weight, but if you have mic stands that are up to the job it’s hard to think of an application that wouldn’t benefit from a KU4!”
