Portable Studio Hosts Daily Demonstrations Utilizing Versatile Microphone Setup
ANAHEIM, CA – Danish loudspeaker specialist, Dynaudio is collaborating with some of the most respected pro audio brands including DPA Microphones (Booth 18507) to give undiscovered artists a chance at their big break. The Dynaudio Unheard Touring Studio will be located in the Grand Plaza by the entrance to the Anaheim Convention Center for the 2019 NAMM Show.
Created in specially constructed shipping containers–half-glass, with a full PA system out front, the Dynaudio Unheard Studio puts the spotlight on undiscovered artists. The concept demands an incredibly complex and technical setup to record the bands and broadcast the show live. At the same time the bands are being recorded, a separate multi-channel audio feed is sent to a front-of-house PA system, and an additional feed is passed on to a video-editing team. The artists will also have their own headphone-monitor mix. In short, it’s a studio recording session combined with a live concert and a near-real time broadcast.
For the Dynaudio Unheard Studio, DPA is providing a large and versatile range of microphones including three d:facto™ 4018V Vocal Mics, two d:dicate™ 2011C and 4011C Recording Mics, five d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Mics, two d:screet™ 4060 Miniature Mics, and one d:sign™ 4098 Podium Mic used for talkback from the mixing room.
“We are excited to be part of such a unique partnership with our friends at Dynaudio,” says Christopher Spahr, VP of Marketing & Sales, DPA Inc. “Not only will we be exposing some of the most talented yet undiscovered artists to our microphones, but we will be also giving all of those in attendance a daily chance to get up close and personal with the DPA mics that are being used in the Dynaudio Unheard Studio. DPA will also be posting videos of the Dynaudio Unheard Studio bands rocking out with DPA to our social channels as well as a range of educational content.”
In addition to DPA, the mixing and audio-routing backbone of the Dynaudio Unheard Studio system is provided by Waves Audio and Digital Audio Denmark. Klang Technologies is providing the headphone-based monitoring set-up, while the vast majority of the backline, as well as the PA system, is provided by Yorkville. Clavia’s North American distributor American Music & Sound is providing an 88-stage piano and Zaor is providing a studio table and mixing room speaker stands.
