Royer Labs SF-24 Stereo Active Ribbon Microphone

The Royer SF-24 is a stereo active ribbon microphone. It is the powered version of the Royer Labs SF-12 - combining the brilliant stereo image and transient response of the SF-12 microphones, with Royer Labs’ exclusive powering system. The SF-24 has a 14dB better sensitivity as a result, making it on par with condenser microphones in terms of output. This opens up many more options for suitable microphone pre-amps. The Royer SF-24 has 2 x ribbon microphones that are aligned in a Blumlein stereo miking configuration.

      Stereo to Mono

      Recording in Mono:
      Phase compatibility between the two sides of the SF-24 is excellent, allowing you to combine the two channels for mono recording without creating phase artifacts. This is particularly useful when capturing a wide sound field in mono; for instance, a singer who tends to move off the “sweet spot” of a mono microphone. Either side of the SF-24 can also be used individually as a mono microphone.
