DPA Hits the Road with Khalid on the Free Spirit World Tour

In Audio, Audio Industry News, Uncategorizedby

After auditioning nearly every industry standard microphone capsule for multi-platinum recording artist Khalid, Production Manager and FOH Engineer CJ Blair found that DPA Microphonesd:facto 4018VL Vocal Microphone perfectly complemented the singer’s deep R&B tones. Now out on Khalid’s Free Spirit World Tour, Blair initially sought out a new vocal solution as a means of bringing the GRAMMY® Award-nominated singer-songwriter’s studio sound to the live stage.
Throughout the tour, Blair has found the d:facto 4018VL delivers unrivalled sound quality night-in and night-out. “Khalid, like most artists, doesn’t want a technical explanation of why something does or does not sound great,” he says. “He just wants a great sounding solution; and we found that with the d:facto 4018VL.”
Though he was previously using another microphone solution for Khalid’s vocals, Blair was familiar with DPA Microphones, having heard nothing but praise about the company from his industry colleagues and friends. When he finally had the opportunity to try them out, Blair was quickly convinced they were the right mic for Khalid’s live concert needs.

In Audio, Audio Industry News, Audio Product News, home_page, Industry Newsby admin

If you are short-staffed and relying on volunteers, it can be tough to produce high quality, weekly content to keep your congregation updated and engaged. Not every house of worship has the budget for a full-time video producer. Now, for a fraction of the cost, you have the option of automating your video production with the One Button Studio.
Each One Button Studio kit comes 90% assembled and includes everything you need to turn a small room into an automated recording studio. We’re talking lights, microphone, camera, monitors & capture hardware. Yet, it’s so simple to use, you don’t need to know anything about video production.
Installation is simple too, because we designed this kit to integrate easily into a small office space or conference room. We include hardware for mounting the lights and microphone to a typical drop-ceiling. And the whole system operates on a single power outlet, so there is no need to call in an electrician.
Imagine walking into a room with a PowerPoint and a thumb drive, then walking out fifteen minutes later with a completely finished video. This is the power of the One Button Studio! (+Plus version required for presentation integration.)
