Audio-Technica (booth 6740) has been selected as the microphone of choice for Dialog replacement recording (ADR) for the hit NBC TV series Grimm.

The show is shot on location in Portland, Oregon, and local Sonic Media Studios is in charge of recording ADR. Longtime A-T endorser and engineer John Neff, whose music and film mixing operations are located at Sonic Media Studios, recommended to Sonic Media Studios owner Paul Nelson and Audio Engineer Wayne Woods that they use a BP4073 Line + Gradient Condenser Microphone for the job.

Neff presented them with a unit for testing, and in a field test against two other manufacturers, the BP4073 won out. Neff previously has used all A-T mics in the location recording for David Lynch’s Inland Empire, and he has used the BP4073 in other features and documentaries.

Nelson stated, “We listened to three really great mics for our shotgun selection. The A-T was hands-down the winner in our test. It really did have more ‘presence’ than the others.”

Stated Neff, “I continue to choose A-T because over the years their products have proven time and time again to be completely reliable and have the ability to capture audio with the highest quality. When you are in the field and have a set with actors and full crew, you can’t risk anything. Audio-Technica mics deliver every time.”

The BP4073 is currently available with a U.S. MSRP of $999.00.
