DPA 4097 Core Micro Shotgun Finds Additional Role as a Plant Mic Posted: 10/08/2020
DPA 4097 Core Micro Shotgun Finds Additional Role as a Plant Mic DPA Microphones’ new 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun Microphone is being widely adapted into the television and film production world as a plant mic solution. Featuring the same sonic qualities as the brand’s supercardioid 4097 CORE Choir Microphone, the compact 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has been optimized to pick up speech from a distance. “We spoke with professional sound engineers to find out what they needed in their toolboxes and designed the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun as a plant mic solution to complement their other equipment,” says René Mørch, product manager, DPA Microphones. “Ideal for miking in small spaces, the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun has a small footprint and clear audio pickup. The sonic qualities of the 4097 CORE Micro Shotgun are particularly beneficial for placing mics in inconspicuous locations as it enables location sound experts to capture sound from anywhere on set. Used in combination with our boom mics and lavaliers, the 4097 Micro Shotgun becomes the final piece of a complete microphone package to meet the needs of any TV or film production. Since the 4097 has the same sonic characteristics as all DPA mics, it is now easy to capture reliable, high-quality audio that doesn’t need dubbing or hours of mixing and post-production work.”

Rony Feliz Buys A Neve 1073OPX Mic Pre Amp For His New Studio

Rooted Studios is one of the first commercial recording studios in the USA to invest in a Neve® 1073OPX – the new Octal Microphone/Line/Instrument Preamplifier launched earlier this year by AMS Neve to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary 1073®.

Based in Hackensack, Rooted Studios is owned by musician, engineer and producer Rony Feliz who opened the facility just as the state of New Jersey went into Covid-19 lockdown. While that could have spelled disaster for such a new venture, Rony and his staff have turned adversity into opportunity by focusing on remote mixing, recording and writing sessions.

LCBC Church Mic Upgrade Takes Sound and Comfort to the Next Level

LCBC Church, an evangelical megachurch with 14 campuses through Central Pennsylvania, is one of the largest and most well-known churches in America. As such, its leaders expect only the best from the equipment they purchase. When DPA Microphones released the world’s smallest high-end pro audio headset microphone, with a capsule that measures in at just 3 mm (0.12 in) in diameter, LCBC’s audio team took notice. Among the first houses of worship to purchase DPA’s award-winning 6066 CORE Subminiature Headset – one for each of its two primary communicators, the church selected the mic for its high-quality sound, sleek design, enhanced comfort and small form-factor.
