DPA Selected For Bentley Corporate

News Image
Portsmouth-based MLS Audio recently selected DPA Mics for assistance at a corporate event for car manufacturer Bentley at the Royal Exchange in London. The set-up proved quite tricky, given the venue's 50m high roof and 95% reflective surfaces thanks to ample use of glass, marble, stone and tiles.

Sound engineer and MLS Audio founder Guy Morris said: "The original brief was for 'a few singers and a band'. This became 'a few singers placed around the room on podiums with a band at one end' to the final translation of 'six opera and West End show artists and a 10-piece orchestra'.
"The artists had already specified that their preference was to use headset microphones and immediately chose single ear versions of DPA's d:fine™ Headset Microphones. The orchestra, however, was another issue because we had 10 instruments to amplify in a space that was acoustically very challenging. We also had very limited set up time because the Royal Exchange is open to the public until 6pm and Bentley's event was due to start at 7pm. We spoke to James Lawford at LMC Audio Systems, our preferred equipment supplier, and he suggested DPA d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones."
MLS Audio bought DPA's recently introduced d:vote™ Classic 10 Touring Kit, which incorporates 10 d:vote microphones, adapters and cables, as well as a selection of 25 clips for a variety of instruments.
"The mounts are made of a non-abrasive rubber material that every musician was happy to use," he says. "In fact, I got the feeling they had used d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones before because they were all able to place and fit the mount themselves with hardly any guidance from the sound crew.
"With every mic offering the same consistent neutral sound, it was a simple tweak of EQ to suit each instrument. The gain was ample with a quiet noise floor, and the placing of the mic (although critical for some instruments as they are of a directional, supercardioid pattern) offered excellent results."
