The R-101 is a new breed of modern ribbon microphone designed for today's studio and live environments, exhibiting a flat frequency response and a well balanced, panoramic soundfield. Its ability to withstand 135dB SPL @ 30Hz makes it ideal for applications that were previously off limits to ribbon microphones.

The R-101 incorporates many advancements pioneered by Royer Labs, including multi-layered wind screening for superior protection from air blasts and plosives. The screening also provides reduced proximity effect, allowing for closer miking with less bass buildup. The ribbon element's smooth frequency response and phase linearity, coupled with sensitivity levels surpassing those of "classic" ribbon microphones, make this microphone ideal for digital recording. A perfect choice for electric guitars, brass instruments and drums, the R-101's figure-8 pattern also conveys superb ambience and depth when used for room miking applications.

The R-101 incorporates Royer's patented offset-ribbon technology and a low mass, 2.5-micron aluminum (99.9% pure) ribbon element. The motor assembly's flux-frame and rare earth Neodymium magnets create a powerful magnetic field which increases sensitivity while reducing stray magnetic radiation. The R-101’s offset-ribbon design positions the ribbon element towards the front of the microphone body, which allows for higher SPL handling on the front (logo) side and the option of a brighter response when recording lower SPL sound sources on the back side (3 feet and closer; phase reversed in this position).
