Belgian's Bands Try Out DPA Mics

News Image
Belgian sound engineer Joris Verniest, from betterliVe.be, has recently been introducing DPA Microphones’ new d:facto II Vocal Microphone to some of the country’s top bands.
DPA’s Belgian distributor Amptec gave Verniest the first DPA d:facto II Vocal Microphone in the country to demo.
Since then, he has been using it for a wide variety of gigs and with many different artists.
"The vocals are incredibly clear through my mix and there is very little crosstalk from the drums or guitar amps," says Verniest.
"I even recorded some gigs in multitrack to compare the d:facto with other microphones and there was a huge difference in terms of crosstalk, with the d:facto coming out much better."
Joris Verniest recently used the DPA d:facto II Vocal Microphone at a concert for Belgian Indie Rock band Het Zesde Metaal at the Ancienne Belgique in Brussels.
The band was playing with a string quartet and acoustic piano, both of which were also miked with DPA – d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones for the string quartet and a stereo pair of DPA 4021 Compact Cardioid microphones for the piano.
"In general I use the d:facto II Vocal Microphone with DPA’s wired handle, but I do like the concept of the adapter system that makes it compatible with most commonly used wireless systems,” Verniest says. “I’ve always been a big fan of DPA’s sound quality and have quite a collection of DPA mics. That’s why I was so interested to try the new d:facto Vocal Microphone."
Among the bands that Verniest has introduced to the DPA d:facto Vocal Microphone are Customs, The Bony King of Nowhere, Renée and Sherman.
"All of these artists have really noticed a difference and have been very happy with the clarity d:facto delivers to their vocals,” he adds. “Sherman, for example, wanted his vocals to be very loud and clear and the d:facto helped me achieve that without sounding hollow or being on the edge of feedback."
