ORLANDO, SEPTEMBER 5, 2019DPA Microphones is featuring its latest microphone offerings at WFX 2019 (Booth 735), which includes the newly released 2028 Vocal and 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphones. The newest DPA additions have been expertly designed with the same sonic character as the company’s other mics to meet the high standards that users have come to expect from the brand’s solutions.
“We put a great deal of time into designing both of these microphones, which offer high-quality audio at an affordable price-point to meet the needs of churches of all sizes; and we’re excited to showcase them at WFX 2019,” says Alan Johnson, U.S. HOW sales manager, DPA Microphones. “Our 4097 is a sleek and elegant choir microphone that is smaller than other mics of its kind. It features our revolutionary CORE by DPA amplifier technology, which means a clear sound is achieved every time as it lowers the distortion and expands the dynamic range. The 2028 has been cohesively designed to provide the same amazing sound as our flagship d:facto™ 4018 VL handheld mic and, similarly, has been optimized to fit the unique challenges of live performance. We look forward to sharing these solutions at WFX this year.”

Focusrite Pro RedNet Control 2.4 Adds New Functionality to Red & RedNet Interfaces

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

Los Angeles, CA, September 4, 2019 – Focusrite has released RedNet Control 2.4, a free software update that adds Dante Domain Manager (DDM) and AES67/AES70 compatibility, as well as an AES3 Kill Switch function, background mode and other enhancements.
RedNet Control 2.4 makes all Focusrite Red audio interfaces, plus RedNet devices with Audinate Brooklyn 2, Ultimo and Ultimo X architecture, compatible with Dante Domain Manager. This new functionality brings advantages to administrators of large networked audio systems, who can now assign the privilege structure of Dante Domain Manager to RedNet Control users. Specifically, RedNet Control 2.4 recognizes the four distinct levels of system access granted within DDM: Site Administrator, Domain Administrator, Operator and Guest. As a result, users can be granted access only to the RedNet Control features necessary for their workflow. Those who just need to record audio from an existing subscription, for example, will not be able to make admin-level adjustments such as sample rate changes, or create new audio subscriptions.

New DPA 2028 Vocal Mic Aims to Change the Live Performance Landscape

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

ALLEROD, DENMARK, AUGUST 2019DPA Microphones presents a new addition to its microphone lineup, the 2028 Vocal Microphone. The 2028 delivers DPA’s renowned natural sound, which allows all types of vocals to shine. Perfect for everyone from indie artists to international touring singers, the 2028 mic is ideally suited for live stage performances, broadcast and pro AV applications.
On a live stage, the 2028 delivers the same sonic qualities as DPA’s other great solutions. In fact, the 2028 needs no (or very little) EQ to sound just like you are standing next to the singer listening to their performance. This allows the artist to hone-in on their vocals as if not using a microphone, which puts less strain on the voice. In addition, the transparency of the 2028 allows engineers to spend their time shaping the sound experience rather than covering up issues caused by artifacts.
