The Audio Engineering Assoc R88 is a microphone system designed to simplify coincident stereo recording techniques. The microphone is clearly marked and easily configurable for Blumlein and M-S recording. The Large Ribbon GeometryTM bidirectional motor design unique to the R88 has an excellent off-axis frequency response. The R88 captures a faithful acoustic image of the instruments or ensemble placed in front of it, as well as a clear and convincing representation of the recording room. The microphone is shock mounted to a standard 5/8” female thread, and includes a locking angle adapter for flexible positioning.

The R88 is excellent on applications as diverse as drum overheads, brass, woodwinds, and chamber and orchestral recordings. The mic was designed to have a natural and realistic presentation, with balanced, neutral tone and precise imaging. The coincident configuration of the R88 means that postproduction techniques such as stereo rotation and width adjustment may be performed without comprimising the relative placement of instruments in the soundstage.
