A quarter century ago, two former high school and LSU School of Engineering classmates were inspired to found a new company called PreSonus®, where they would design innovative audio products with professional sound quality and features without sacrificing affordability. Working in a borrowed garage space in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Berklee-trained guitarist, producer, and audio engineer Jim Odom and fellow engineer (currently Vice President of Manufacturing) Brian Smith started by creating the DCP-8, which was the first product to offer digital control over analog audio circuits—a design PreSonus patented in 1995.
“At the time we designed our DCP-8, other options were esoteric gear costing tens of thousands of dollars,” recalls Odom, now the company’s President and Chief Strategy Officer. “We were recording and wanted the same equipment as the big studios but we couldn’t afford it, so we built our own, starting PreSonus with three employees and an output of five or six units a week. Then and now, our philosophy has been to design products that people can afford.”

After auditioning nearly every industry standard microphone capsule for multi-platinum recording artist Khalid, Production Manager and FOH Engineer CJ Blair found that DPA Microphones’ d: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.
