Many of the artists that Madix works with have been impressed by DPA microphones’ clarity and natural sound. “Like many artists I’ve introduced DPA to, Florence [Welch, Florence + The Machine’s lead singer] said ‘wow, I can really hear everything’ when she listened back to the mix. This is a compliment on its own because that is always difficult to achieve in an arena,” he says.
Madix points out that a key benefit of using DPA mics is that he doesn’t have to EQ as much. “It just sounds right from the beginning,” he adds. “DPA has all these great elements built-into one cohesive structure. It saves me a lot of time and stress to not have to fuss around with the mics, especially during live performances.”
Working with such large names, Madix is not willing to compromise sound quality and will continue to rely on DPA Microphones for all his recording and live sound needs. Additionally, he plans to add more of the brand’s microphones to Diablo Digital’s arsenal.
Also available with CORE by DPA Technology, the company’s 4099 CORE Instrument Microphone creates an even clearer sound by lowering overall distortion and expanding the dynamic range. This innovative amplification technology also powers DPA’s line of miniature lavaliers and headset microphones.
