Euroconcerts Audio Control Rely On DPA Microphones For Live And Recorded TV Productions

For over 25 years, Euroconcerts Audio Control has called on DPA Microphones to provide pristine and reliable sound reinforcement for a wide array of musical productions.

Included among the Euroconcerts mic locker are the DPA 4015 Wide Cardioid, 2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid, 4023 Compact Cardioid, 4037 Compact Omnidirectional, 4099 Instrument Microphone, 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional and d:facto 4018V Vocal Microphones.

The company recently implemented the 2011 Cardioid for a classical music production that aired on Dutch National TV. “In previous years, we would record a choir with a stereo mic set up,” explains Euroconcerts founder, Johan van Loo. “However, due to COVID restrictions this year, we were only able to have a small number of singers on-stage. Therefore, we had to switch to a close-miking setup – and the 2011 proved to be the perfect solution. It not only has a great, natural sound, it also looks nice on camera because it is not obtrusive.”

“Since I first began using DPA’s small diaphragm microphones, all of the artists with whom I work have come to prefer DPA over other brands,” says van Loo. “They especially love them for close-miking their instruments because the mics sound better and provide more gain before feedback. It’s been the same for vocals, especially since the launch of the d:facto 4018V.”

When it comes to other mic features, van Loo says “DPA mics make EQ’ing a lot easier. In fact, there is often no EQ needed, except perhaps to add a personal flavor. What’s more, the mics have a superior audio quality. In live recordings, there are always many unpredictable situations and surprises, so you need to be able to rely on your gear to get you through. DPA has proven to be a reliable solution in any given situation, and with great results.”
