Ribbon mic manufacturer Crowley and Tripp will be introducing a new type of ribbon microphone at AES that uses proprietary Roswellite advanced material as the ribbon element. According to Bob Crowley, "the invention of Roswellite...could replace the traditional aluminum leaf used in ribbon mics."
Developed at Soundwave Research Laboratories, the new nanotechnology-based materials exhibit properties that have previously not been possible with conventional composites and alloys.
Crowley and Tripp Microphones, along with Soundwave Research Laboratories, will be commercializing certain products containing the technology beginning in 2007, and will be offering licenses to the technology, supply agreements, and other rights to qualified manufacturers.
