Audio Engineering Associates (AEA), announced at the AES show that its s new KU4 supercardioid ribbon microphone is now available through AEA dealers worldwide.

 

The KU4 is a modern interpretation of the KU3A unidirectional microphone (also known by its manufacturing number MI-10001) designed by RCA for the Hollywood movie industry in the late 1940s. The KU4 combines the ribbon sound of a 44 with a unidirectional pattern. Since RCA only built 600 of the KU3As, these microphones have become collector’s items.

 

The KU4’s increased rear rejection of the supercardioid polar pattern is designed to reduce the amount of room sound, which is often desired in modern production applications, particularly vocal recording. The KU4 comes with neodymium magnets and a low-tuned RCA new-old stock ribbon.
