DPA Captures Sounds For Grid: Autosport

News Image
Sound designers at Codemasters recently chose a kit bag of DPA Microphones to record sounds for new racing game Grid: Autosport, which was released in June 2014.

Among the microphones used were various products from DPA's d:dicate™ recording Microphone range, including a d'dicate 4011 ER - a cardioid capsule mounted on a cable preamp.
Also used was a d:dicate 4018 capsule, which provided a super-cardioid polar pattern when needed. The d:dicate line up was completed with a 4007A Omni, which features a low noise floor and handles high SPL (155dB peak) before clipping. With a frequency response of 20 Hz to 40 kHz (±2 dB), this microphone is perfect for recording noisy drive-by's and stationary engine sounds, or sounds from within the cockpit.
Codemasters used DPA d:screet SC4062 miniature mics, which offer low sensitivity and can handle higher sound pressure levels.
The Sunday Times' supplement said: "Codemasters has much more accurately reproduced real engine noises, right down to the pop and crackle of exhaust over-run. Up to 16 microphones were attached to the real cars in order to record the sounds, with specialist equipment being used to avoid the mics near the exhaust melting."
