The Oscar winning score of Life of Pi was captured for audiences using AEA’s R88 Stereo Ribbon Microphone. LA-based engineer Brad Haehnel recorded and mixed the soundtrack for the movie, which recently garnered four Academy Awards including Best Original Score for Mychael Danna. The AEA R88 faithfully reproduced the sound of the horn section while vintage RCA 44 ribbon microphones were used as spot mics during the sessions at the Fox scoring stage. Haehnel adds: “I use the AEA R88 on basically every session and no matter the application it never fails to deliver.”

Grammy award winning producer Gustavo Borner chose nine AEA mics for the broadcast of the historic MTV "Unplugged" featuring Los Tigres del Norte. "Pop" elements were fusion-designed with Los Tigres' traditional Norteño style, including a brass section, string quartet, percussion, and keyboards. AEA's presence was strong, featuring its KU4 unidirectional ribbon microphones on lead vocals, R92 microphones on accordion, R84's on brass and A840's on tenor sax. Gustavo is a big fan of ribbon mics, explaining that "the brass instruments were miked with AEA R84's for a beautiful and warm sound."
