Hellow notes that in Post Malone’s case, there is a guitar on stage so the mic does a great job of isolating while also getting the warmth and crispness of the high end that is wanted from a vocal mic. He also has more control over EQing with DPA and is able to take away frequencies since all the healthy ones present to the ear are already there.
“There’s no other mic like the d:facto™
4018VL,” adds Hellow. “I use this transducer to capture Post Malone’s dynamic, high-impact voice. When using the d:facto™ 4018VL, most of the artists I work with notice right away that they’re on something superior to what they have used previously.”
In addition, Hellow has also been very pleased with the customer service he receives from DPA. “From demo mic’s to knowledge-based questions and answers, the DPA team has provided excellent support throughout our journey,” says Hellow. “It’s no coincidence that DPA’s reputation is one of the most trusted, reliable and secure in the industry.”
Post Malone recently performed “Rockstar” and “Stay” with his d:facto™
4018VL mic at the 2019 Grammys, before joining Red Hot Chili Peppers for “Dark Necessities.” Malone is currently on a world tour, which has stops in Manchester, Birmingham, Berlin, Glasgow and London's O2 Arena throughout the summer.
