Samme lyd og indmad som R44C. Dette er Cost Effective (CE) versionen, hvor den kosmetiske detalje-grad i genskabelsen af RCA44, er sparet væk.
Den originale RCA-44 (årgang 1936-1938) er idag umulig at skaffe/købe.

Lyden af en 44´er er indbygget i os allesammen, da enhver lydside til film i USA gør brug af den klassiske lyd fra RCA44´eren, og nu AEA R44CE.

Hvis man er i toppen af studieverdenen, skal man kunne tilbyde denne klassiske Ribbon lyd !!


20 years servicing ribbon microphones gave us a lot of insight into why RCA 44s are still in daily studio use. During the 1990s, 44 collectors made it difficult for even recording studios to acquire one. Reborn as the AEA R44, today you´ll find engineer/producers such as Bruce Swedien, Kevin Bacon and Shawn Murphy using them around the world. Half the movies scored in Los Angeles now have at least one 44 on the scoring stage.

The AEA R44 Series Microphones
The AEA R44 series microphones all share the authentic sound, feel and look of the 1936-38 RCA 44BX. They combine the 1930s US sound with British engineering from RCA that reduces the mic´s weight and hum sensitivity. The R44 series microphones are all hand-crafted replicas in detail, using parts that are made to be interchangeable with an original RCA 44, even featuring ribbon material originally manufactured for RCA. The R44C was designed to meet or exceed the output of an RCA 44 when it was new. The R44CX is a high-output version of the R44C especially designed for scoring and other applications demanding a wide dynamic range with the “classic 44” sound.The R44 series microphones are passive, like an RCA 44 is, and can be used in a wider range of situations without distorting than active microphones can. For the active version of the R44, check out the AEA A440 page.
The A440 has the hottest signal and therefore can boast to be the quietest (highest signal to noise ratio) of any ribbon mic on the planet!

User Reviews

“These are the best f#%*ing mics I´ve ever used!”
–Eddie Van Halen,Guitarist, Van Halen, Los Angeles

“They are BEYOND wonderful. I used them extensively on my recordings for the new Who record – on my vocals, acoustic guitars, mandolins, banjos, piano, string quartet (the stereo)…It is without question the best mike I have ever used. The best sound I´ve ever achieved without tweaking a single knob apart from mic gain. I feel as though I´ve gone back in time to a place where getting a sound was easy. It´s almost impossible to make it sound bad!”
–Pete Townshend,The Who, London

“I´ve been thoroughly enjoying my R44CNE and use it on nearly ever project that comes through the door. It´s got such a beautiful tone and, of course, it looks impressive, too!!!!!”
–Jory K. Prum,studio.jory.org, New York

“Audio Engineering Associates R44C and R44CX Ribbon Microphones”
The AEA R44C is one of the best ribbon microphones available today. Purchasing an AEA R44C or R44CX not only mean you acquire a fantastic microphone, it also means you own a piece of history.

AEA R44 Review
August 01, 2000, Studio Sound
AEA´s reproduction has won plaudits from engineers like Bruce Swedien, Allen Sides and Shawn Murphy, all with plentiful experience of the original and all saying the AEA version is as good or better. It may be tempting to think of it as a useful movie prop that happens to work, but this is a serious microphone that delivers something special.

“Audio Engineering Associates R44C and R44CX”
It may very well be the perfect microphone for those who wish to relive the good old days, or for anyone who would like to experience working with the classic design. It is obvious that the AEA R44C and its accessories were created by folks who truly appreciate the history and art of audio.

“Audio Engineering Assocociates´ R44C: RCA Ribbon Microphone Re-creation”
There is a sweetness and beautiful authority to the 44 sound that has not been re-created until now. As so many of the original units are in disrepair or out of service, the availability of a new microphone with these characteristics is very welcome. In all, the AES R44C is a very successful re-creation, one of the best in current memory.

AEA R44 Review
Dec 01, 1998, Pro Audio Review, by Frank Beacham
“The High Art of the Microphone”
That great bottom end has made the 44 a favorite for voice, horns, upright bass and guitar, not to mention audio drama where groups of performers can “work” the microphone simultaneously.

3 anmeldelser af AEA R44CE

  1. Lars Vissing

    Der findes mange rigtig gode mikrofoner derude. Men efter at jeg har købt denne, er der ingen tvivl om at den lyser over alle de andre. Mine optagelser af hornsektion, trommer og perc er nu på aller højeste niveau. fuldstændig fænomenal gengivelse af selve instrumentets klang og frekvens. Rører stort set ikke EQ på de instrumenter der er optaget med AEA R44CE. Herligt

  2. Brassflavour

    Brassflavour brugte AEA R44CE da de skulle indspille deres 2. plade. Ideen var at give musikken en lyd som på en gammel amerikansk indspilning. Derfor var R44’eren et oplagt valg. Mikrofonen blev brugt som ambient mikrofon til bandet og til at indsynge vokal efterfølgende. Vi må sige at mikrofonen i den grad levede op til vores forventninger og gav lige nøjagtig den lyd som vi var ude efter – ikke kun på grund af den varme bløde lyd, men også på grund af dens evne til at gengive alle nuancer i musikken. Det er uden tvivl en mikrofon der ikke lyder som noget andet på markedet og vi er rigtig glade for at have valgt netop den mikrofon til vores plade.

    Da det DMA vindende band ”Thorbjørn Risager & The Black Tornado” skulle indspille nyt album, spillede hornsektionen i en R44CE fra Luxury Audio Gear.
    Kor og percussion blev ligeledes indspillet med R44CE.
    Hele hornsektionen i samme mic, for at få så autentisk en lyd som muligt! Faktisk giver 8 tals karakteristikken mulighed for at spille ind i mikrofonen fra begge sider.

    Peter Kehl udtaler: ”Det var super fedt endeligt at få en samlet sound som blæsersektion i studiesammenhæng, som man var glad for fra første gennemlytning af i kontrolrummet. EQ og niveauet blæserne imellem er givet fra start af så det betyder en meget nem editering i mix. Der blev på enkelte numre lavet dubs med bariton sax og en ekstra trompet så man kunne vælge at booste disse i endelig mix hvis der var brug for det”.

    Lineup i hornsektionen:
    Trumpet: Peter Kehl
    Altosax/Baritonsax: Kasper Wagner
    Tenorsax: Hans Nybo
