Sound Design

As the microphone features a Figure-8 pickup pattern, it picks up your source audio from both the front and back, giving you more versatile recording options. Out of the box, the R144 is perfect for backup vocals, amped guitars, and bowed strings, but as it responds well to equalization, you can easily tweak the sound to suit your needs.

Light and compact, the MXL R144 Ribbon Microphone is easy to set-up, but be careful of the fragile ribbon as it can easily be damaged. To that end, the package includes a shock mount for extra stability and a microfiber cleaning cloth to make your mic pristine, giving you a high quality microphone and the tools to keep it that way.
