format_quote The R-122 MKll Live’s output is on par with phantom powered condenser mics, allowing for long cable runs and the occasional sub-par mic preamps, and its switchable -15 dB pad and bass-cut filter deliver unprecedented flexibility on electric guitars, drum overheads, trumpets and other live instruments. Most importantly, it produces the warm, realistic sounds that only ribbon mics can deliver. Along with its smooth, natural response, the R-122 MKll Live virtually eliminates the shrill high-end often encountered with live guitars, brass and drum cymbals. Push up the faders and there’s the instrument in all its fullness, minus the peaky highs that FOH and Monitor engineers spend so much of their careers fighting.
Figure-8’s On Stage
The R-122 MKll Live’s pickup pattern is figure-8, which can be used to control stage bleed with great effect. Side rejection in the null points is strong – simply position the mics “ears” to face the offending instrument(s) and bleed will be virtually eliminated. The top and bottom of the microphone are also null points. If monitors are in close proximity to the rear side of the microphone, a positioning adjustment can place the monitors output in the mic’s null, isolating the monitor from the mic’s pickup areas.
