Complete units are rare because the baffles were easily damaged or lost. I’m lucky to have found two: an almost mint condition example in the common burnt umber (RCA brown) finish, and a very clean specimen in the rare black and… View this story

By 2015, the former warehouse and bomb fuse assembly line had become a worship center with student… View this story

    Digital consoles have produced many benefits and changes to touring live sound workflow. Instant reset-ability, automated scene changes and multi-band festivals on a single mixer, just to name a few. Perhaps the biggest is that it’s no longer necessary to bring the console itself from on tour; instead, the console’s show file just needs to be loaded onto a similar desk. While the move from analog to digital also drastically reduced console size and weight on a per channel basis,… View this story

    For location sound engineer Ben Nimkin, there is frequently precious little time to outfit the talent with a microphone capable of faithfully capturing the audio quality necessary for documentary film production.  To minimize the challenges of this process, Nimkin relies extensively on his collection of lavalier microphones from Menlo Park, CA-based Countryman Associates. After completing graduate school for documentary filmmaking, Nimkin began his career as a freelance editor and occasional shooter. He quickly took an interest in the audio aspects… View this story

    A 30-year industry veteran, Rick Alexander has learned the vital importance of carrying DPA Microphones’ products in his audio kit. As an audio engineer for both broadcast and live events, Alexander trusts the company’s mics to combat any auditory challenges he faces during a project.
