DPA Enlightens Audio For Holland's Petruskerk

News Image
Founded in 1313, Petruskerk van Leens is one of Holland's oldest churches and home to its famous, recently restored organ, which has been treasured by parishioners for generations.

Once churchgoers were faced with stay-at-home orders due to COVID-19, the church decided to introduce live streaming services to bring mass, and their beloved organ’s music, into the homes of the parish. To help the church design its AV set-up, it called on Bart Hof, owner of HOF AV. Based on his previous use of the mics in live music applications, Hof recommended DPA Microphones to support the audio needs of the church.

"In my opinion, when it comes to the equipment, the simpler and more straightforward way that you approach music is actually the best way to handle audio in a natural way," Bart explained. "With DPA mics, it's just a matter of connecting it, and you get this natural sound with no compromise at all."

For Petruskerk, HOF installed one stereo pair of DPA's 4060 Series Miniature Omnidirectional Microphones with extension cables as overheads, approximately 10- to 15-meters above the organ. This approach was chosen after listening to the organ and testing how the mics reacted to certain levels. Rounding out the AV install was a Roland audio mixing console, which the DPA 4060 mics are plugged into, and a variety of Panasonic 2K cameras running on SDI.
