DPA Microphones will showcase its esteemed studio and live sound microphone solutions at the 2022 AES New York Show (Booth 328). Designed to deliver DPA's crystal-clear, natural audio, these mics are ideal for any audio professional working in the live production sphere, the company says, as well as in the studio. Offering both instrument and vocal mics for a variety of applications, attendees can view DPA's newly released 4055 Kick Drum Microphone alongside the company's 2028 Vocal Microphone. The company will also highlight its 4006 and 4011 Pencil Microphones and 4099 Instrument Microphones, which all perform equally well at home in-studio and on-stage.

Designed without a pre-tailored sound, the company's new 4055 Kick Drum Microphone allows sound engineers to shape the sound of the instrument exactly as desired for any application -- be it pop, rock, jazz, folk, or other genres. The mic's asymmetric design makes it easy to position when slid into any size drum without risking a tear in the drum skin. It can be placed both inside or outside the kick drum, so finding the ideal placement is quick and effortless, without worry of compromising sound pickup or quality. Being a condenser mic, it is also fast and produces a tight and clean sound even at very high SPL (max SPL is 164dB). Although specifically designated for use with a kick drum, this mic can be used on many instruments found in live house bands on loud stages, such as electric guitar cabinets, bass, and horns due to its flat frequency response and ability to bring the uncolored sound to the next level.

On a live stage, the 2028 Vocal Microphone delivers the same sonic qualities as DPA's other solutions, the company says, allowing all types of vocals to shine. Borrowing elements from the company's renowned d:facto 4018 Vocal Mic, the 2028 is well suited for everyone from indie artists to international touring singers, and needs no EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This enables the artist to hone-in on their vocals, while the mic's transparency allows engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up issues caused by artifacts. The mic also features a fixed-position capsule, as well as a specially designed shock-mount and pop filter, for extreme durability and ruggedness on the road.

DPA's 4000 Series pencil mics are available in cardioid and omnidirectional varieties, with pickup pattern and sensitivity options for any application. Designed for concert halls and spot miking acoustical instruments, the 4006 Omnidirectional Microphone captures the tiniest of details, while the 4011 Cardioid Microphone is known for its directional quality and attention to detail, offering accurate and colorless sound in both recording and live applications. DPA will also once again showcase its 4099 CORE Instrument Microphone, which is regarded for its versatility, ruggedness, and natural sound capabilities.
