“A couple of minutes before show time, I realized that I had completely forgotten about ambient microphones to use in our live recording. I quickly decided to attach a pair of d:screetTM 4061 Miniature Microphones
with a gooseneck adapter to the two loudspeaker stands at each side of the stage, using DPA’s magnet clips for piano. The result was a very transparent, crisp sound, which was a stunningly accurate representation of this gig’s ambiance.”
Bisaz adds that having visited DPA’s factory in Denmark, he is even more impressed by the very complex processes involved in making these high end microphones.
“These uncompromising, state of the art microphones make my job as an FOH engineer easier and more exciting than ever,” he says. “What amazes me most is the relatively small variety of different capsule models that can, when combined with the matching accessories, clips and cables, be used for just about anything, even underwater recording!”
