DPA Microphones Focuses on Studio Quality Sound For Prolight + Sound 2017
Bringing recording studio quality to the live stage has long been a hallmark of DPA Microphones, which consistently achieves this ambition with a range of close miking and wireless microphone solutions that are ideal for live music applications.
The latest innovations in this field will be on show at the company’s booth (3.1 F61) at Prolight + Sound 2017. These include the MMP-G Modular Active Cable for MicroDot, a preamp that gives users the ability to create a completely wireless microphone setup offering studio quality audio during live performances, and the GSM4000 Gooseneck Shock Mount that fits both the MMP-G and the existing MMP-E Modular Active Cable with XLR to the extensive range of close miking mounts, known from the Instrument Microphone range.
The MMP -G Modular Active Cable is an ultra-transparent preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing to reject frequency interference. It permits the modular capsules to connect to wireless systems with its fixed MicroDot connector that works with the wide range of DPA adapters suited for all professional wireless systems. The many capsules, ranging from the legendary omnidirectional 4006 to the 4017 shotgun, can easily be mounted on the MMP-G and present an elegant and discreet solution. The MMP-G is available in two variations, MMP-GR with the cable extending from the rear or MMP-GS, with the cable extending from the side.
The GSM4000 Gooseneck Shock Mount Accessory has an elegant clip at the end where the capsule can easily be mounted with a preamp connected to it. Depending on the situation, users can deploy the new MMP-G Modular Active Cable for wireless or the MMP-E Modular Active Cable for wired solutions. The GSM4000 has an integrated shock mount solution ensuring that sound is not affected by extraneous factors such as handling noise or transferred vibrations from the instrument. It has the same diameter as DPA’s renowned 4099 Instrument Microphone gooseneck, which means that the solution can now be mounted directly onto a wide range of instruments using instrument mounts and clips.
At Prolight + Sound 2017, DPA will also be showing its hugely popular and award-winning Vocal Microphone range, which includes an extremely linear version for sound engineers who want to design the complete sound pattern and create their own unique sound.
