Waves and Abbey Road Studios team up for The King's Microphones audio plugin.


Used by the royal family for speeches on momentous occasions, each of these three microphones dating back to the 1920s and 1930s was tailored and tuned especially for its specific user: King George V, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth. They were designed and decorated with gold, silver, and chrome adornments bearing the royal coats of arms. The King’s Microphones plugin offers recreations of the originals’ frequency responses, with three proximity settings for each.


Discovered within the vaults of EMI outside London by a recording engineer at Abbey Road Studios, the microphones were used to record music and dialogue for the film The King’s Speech, the first time they had been used by anyone outside the royal family.


Pricing & Availability

The plugin is offered in native format natif for Mac OS X and Windows and is priced at $99. iLok required. A demo version is also available on www.waves.com.
