DPA Microphones Deliver Perfect Sound Quality To Belgian Artists

DPA Microphones Deliver Perfect Sound Quality To Belgian Artists
Belgian sound specialist 4ears is using a range of DPA microphones to deliver "the perfect sound quality for a diverse range of live music events.
 
In recent weeks the company has been working with Belgian band SX, which used DPAs d:facto¢ Vocal Microphones to great effect at a concert at the Ancienne Belgique concert hall in Brussels.
 
Headed by experienced broadcast and live sound engineer and production manager, Peter Vandergoten, 4ears provides sound mixing and recording equipment to many top Belgium acts and events such as Salvatore Adamo, Ghinzu, Absynthe Minded, Night of the Proms and Rock Werchter. Over the years Vandergoten has built up an impressive collection of DPA microphones including eight d:vote¢ 4099 Instrument Microphones that are regularly used for both rock and classical productions.
 
"Many bands that I work with combine acoustic instruments in a rock setup," Vandergoten say. "Before the DPA d:vote¢ 4099 Instrument Microphone was introduced I would use d:screet¢ 4060 or 4061 Miniature Microphones to amplify classical or acoustic instruments because they sounded very good. However, when the d:vote¢ 4099 came along I was more than happy to make the switch because this microphone gives such a wide range of great results. It has a small setup, it is presented in an elegant way, and it comes with a wide variety of mounting adaptors that give engineers like myself the potential to use it on lots of different kinds of instruments."
 
Vandergotens collection includes eight DPA d:vote¢ 4099 Instrument Microphones, with different mounting adaptors. "It's such a versatile tool because it can be used with many different instruments from drums to violins, for example," he says. 
 
Vandergoten also has four DPA d:dictate¢ 2011 Recording Microphones and he has recently been using these as stereo pairs to record live Adamo performances. 
 
"These microphones allow me to provide the artist with a really clear and representative recording of the concert," he explains. "In the case of Adamo, I always provide him with a mix from the left/right with the recorded d:dicate¢ 2011 mics working as a stereo pair. They give me an excellent and natural sound that I have never been able to match using any other microphone set-up."
 
DPAs recently introduced hand-held d:facto¢ Vocal Microphone is also proving to be a versatile tool for Vandergoten and his team. Since acquiring four d:facto¢ Vocal Microphones from Amptec, DPAs distributor in Belgium, Vandergoten has deployed them on numerous occasions on both lead and backing vocals.
 
"I now use them for virtually every band I work with, in both wired and wireless configuration, he says. It is an excellent microphone that gives a wonderful, natural sound and is also aesthetically pleasing. Thanks to its minimal crosstalk from on-stage sources such as drums, guitar, monitors, etc, this microphone is proving to be a real workhorse for me and one that I can use in all situations live, recording and broadcast."
 
Vandergoten adds that his customers are equally delighted with the d:facto¢. "In fact, the artists I work with are always very positive about the whole experience of using DPA microphones," he says.

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
