When Cooperstown, NY, came alive for the triumphant return of The Glimmerglass Festival, Sound Designer Andrew Harper called upon Masque Sound, a leading theatrical sound reinforcement, installation and design company, to provide a custom audio equipment package for the highly acclaimed summer opera and musical theater festival.

Harper was presented with a unique challenge under the current health and safety standards. “Normally all productions are done inside at the opera house where there is no amplification at all,” says Harper. “This year, the producers created an outdoor stage on the lawn, with the singers and audience outside but the orchestra was located inside. I was tasked with combining the two worlds of the singers and the orchestra, while also creating a great experience for the audience outdoors, all while keeping everyone socially distanced.”

DPA Microphones and KLANG:technologies Collaborate on Fully Immersive In-Ear Solution

In Audio, Audio Industry News, home_page, Image, Industry News, Uncategorized, Web Articlesby admin

DPA Microphones and KLANG:technologies have teamed up to create a system that will enable live event teams to immerse singers and musicians in their on-stage performances. The solution integrates DPA’s renowned 5100 Mobile Surround Microphone and KLANG’s ground-breaking Immersive Mixing Processor for a fully engrossing experience. In addition to the benefits of KLANG’s panning capabilities, the use of DPA surround mics replaces the need for large quantities of microphones to capture the entire environment.

Initially inspired by high-profile live sound users, the collaboration ultimately came to fruition during a series of workshops between KLANG and DPA. Engineers from the brands saw a natural bridge between the uncoloured DPA sound and the KLANG processing, which makes the system well-suited for everything from small clubs to large arena tours. Dedicated pre-sets can be integrated through the KLANG:app, a control application for all KLANG immersive in-ear mixing processors, including the just released KLANG:vokal and KLANG:kontroller. DiGiCo users can also take advantage of the full workflow implementation on the surface of their SD or Quantum range desks.
