Mistresses Has a Love Affair with DPA Microphones Posted: 15/09/2014

For this shoot, Michalski had 20dB spread between the noise and the dialogue. Once it goes to post production, the only thing theyll need to do is add the motorcycle sounds because theyll have a clean voice recording with no background sounds. As a backup, Michalski also outfitted both actors with the d:screet 4071, which provided him with an additional, clean track. With the signal noise being so far above the noise, with either my shotgun or my lavs, its a perfect world for the post team because they can play with the scene later, adds Michalski. They can add more background or take it out.
