“This year we look forward to partnering with the Live Sound Expo and having three highly-talented audio professionals present on our behalf,” says James Capparelle, marketing representative of DPA Microphones, Inc. “We’ll be displaying our full range of innovative products, including our newest and revolutionary d:screet™ Miniature Microphone, which we are excited to unveil at the show. We also encourage all attendees to come hear our live and recording mics in action at our grand piano listening station in our booth.”
Among the products on display will be the d:screet™ Omnidirectional Miniature Necklace Microphone, ideal for applications where the microphone must be hidden from view without obstructing performers’ ability to move freely. The company will also feature its complete line of d:screet™ Miniature Microphones throughout the show.
DPA will also exhibit its podium range, including the d:dicate™ Podium Microphones, which incorporate modular capsules from DPA's d:dicate™ Recording Microphones. The d:dicate™ Podium Microphones are acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. By combining state-of-the-art capsules with modular active booms and floor stands, DPA customers can access the precise high-quality microphone for their needs.
Equally popular is DPA's award-winning handheld d:facto™ Vocal Microphone, which delivers an extraordinarily natural sound, superb definition and extreme SPL handling. Now the vocal microphone of choice for artists such as Sting, Stevie Wonder, Ellie Goulding and Paloma Faith, the d:facto™ is also the first choice among broadcasters, on shows such as X-Factor, So You Think You Can Dance and Voice of Denmark, who want their live music programming to deliver true studio sound quality.
Due to the modularity of its design, the same d:facto™ microphone head can be employed for both wired and wireless use, which means performers are free to choose the configuration that best suits their needs. With DPA's state-of-the-art adapters, users are no longer required to change their entire configuration. At one-quarter of the price, the adapters allow d:facto™ Vocal Microphones to integrate seamlessly with brands such as Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser, giving users the freedom to select their preferred wireless system.
