WAVES Abbey Road King’s Microphones re-creates the frequency response of the ornate mic used by King George VI, as well as the ones used by Queen Elizabeth and King George V. The actual mics (dating back to the 1920s and ’30s) are alive and well and were used to record music and dialogue for the Oscar-sweeping Best Picture at Abbey Road Studios. With three proximity settings for each mic, this is a throughly modern plug-in you can deploy in your favorite DAW.

Give Your Tracks the
Seductive Sound of Warm Analog Tape

In the 1920s and 30s, EMI crafted microphones for British Royalty—King George V, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth—but these gorgeous mics sat neglected in the EMI Archive Trust for decades. Then, in a strange twist of fate, production started on the award-winning film, “The King’s Speech.”

After painstaking restoration, the mics came back to life to record the film’s orchestral sections, as well as “re-amp” the dialogue for authenticity. Then the Abbey Road engineers started experimenting with re-amping guitars and synths to get unique crunchy filter-like qualities. Clearly, the mics were never designed to be used in this fashion—but breaking the rules is how you stand out.
