With a true studio sound for the live stage, the d:facto line offers an extraordinarily natural sound with high separation and extreme SPL handling, giving users unlimited possibilities for their performances.

With these latest color options are sure to make the d:facto even more popular among live sound engineers.

With its superb linearity in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, the d:facto offers impressive definition and accuracy in reproducing a singer’s voice effortlessly, improving audio performance. Its simple plug-and-play features allow it to reproduce an extraordinarily natural sound, capable of achieving the extreme sound level handling of 160 dB. As with all DPA mics, the d:facto provides superior gain before feedback and a robust three-stage pop protection grid built into the microphone to remove unwanted noise. It also boasts exceptional isolation from handling noise as well as the ability to accommodate extreme sound levels.

The new gold and nickel grids will be available starting February 2014.

Sound Devices Nominated For Two Technical Achievement Awards by The Cinema Audio Society

PIX 260i Production Video Recorder and 633 Production Mixer Recognized

REEDSBURG, WI, JANUARY 20, 2014 — Sound Devices, specialists in portable audio and video products for field production, is pleased to announce that its PIX 260i Production Recorder and 633 Production Mixer have been nominated for a Cinema Audio Society (CAS) Technical Achievement Award in the production category.

The Cinema Audio Society was formed in 1964 to advance the art and science of sound in the motion picture and television industry. A blue-ribbon panel of CAS Members determined the nominees for the 50th Annual Cinema Audio Society Technical Achievement Awards, which will be announced on Saturday, February 22 in the Crystal Ballroom of the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

“We are honored to have two products nominated for a CAS Technical Achievement Award,” says Matt Anderson, President of Sound Devices. “We take pride that several of the nominees for outstanding achievement in sound mixing are Sound Devices customers, and to be a small part of their success. Our commitment to providing our customers, and the industry, with world-class products remains our most important business and these nominations reaffirm that mission.”

Sound Devices PIX 260i Production Recorder is a rack-mounted, file-based audio and video recorder that seamlessly replaces tape-based decks in production and post-production environments. The PIX 260i supplies all the features and tools needed by production companies looking to migrate to 32-track file-based recording and playback environments. It records QuickTime video files or audio-only WAV files to up to four attached drives.

Sound Devices has infused the PIX 260i with 32-track audio recording and playback capabilities. In addition to 16 channels of embedded SDI audio and eight channels of HDMI audio, the PIX 260i also accepts eight channels of line-level analog I/O and eight channels of AES digital audio. Using Audinate’s Dante audio-over-Ethernet protocol, the PIX 260i can accept and transmit up to 32 channels of audio over Ethernet.

Sound Devices 633 mixer/recorder features six inputs, with three high-bandwidth mic/line XLR inputs complete with phantom power, high-pass filter, input limiter and variable pan. Three additional line-level inputs appear on TA3 (mini-XLR) connectors. All inputs are assignable to any output bus. AES digital I/O, including support for AES42 digital microphones, is available. The 633 offers 10-track 24-bit, 48 kHz uncompressed polyphonic or monophonic broadcast WAV file recording (96 kHz for eight tracks, 192 kHz for six tracks) or timecode stamped MP3 recording to CompactFlash and/or SD cards. All six inputs plus Left/Right and Aux 1/2, can be recorded to individual tracks. Similar to Sound Devices’ 12-input 664 Production Mixer, the 633 offers dual card slots that record to either one or both cards simultaneously, with the added ability to assign different tracks to each memory card.

Unique to the industry, the 633 is equipped with a four-way power supply and Sound Devices’ proprietary PowerSafe technology. This four-way powering allows for multiple, simultaneous power sources including external DC on a Hirose 4-pin locking (12-18 V), two removable and independent L-type Lithium-ion batteries and internal AA battery powering (six-AA). The unit detects when power sources are removed and seamlessly transitions to an available power source. With its PowerSafe circuitry, when all power is removed the unit remains on for 10 seconds to close all file operations and properly shut down. With PowerSafe, a complete power loss has no effect on the recording. PowerSafe also provides two-second ‘power-on-to-recording’ so the mixer is ready for operation at a moment’s notice.

Sound Devices, LLC designs and manufactures portable audio mixers, digital audio recorders, and digital video recorders and related equipment for feature film, episodic television, documentary, news-gathering, and acoustical test and measurement applications. Founded in 1998, the company designs and manufactures from their Reedsburg, Wisconsin headquarters with additional offices in Madison, WI and Highland Park, IL.

SSL Establishes Live Console Distribution In Austria And Hungary

BUDAPEST VIENNASolid State Logic is pleased to announce the appointment of additional commercial distribution partners for the SSL Live console with TSAMM as its distributor in Austria and AudioMonde for Hungary.

“As an SSL distributor for many years, we had the opportunity to be involved in many discussions regarding what would be needed in a live console of the 21st century, to cover both touring and theatre applications,” says Mario Reithofer, owner of TSAMM. “We visited with SSL several times in the last three years both in Vienna and the U.K., but even I did not expect something so perfect right from the start. The Show Control System and the almost non-existent audio latency has blown us away. This is just one brilliant example of how SSL, unlike many other manufacturers in our business, not only listens to its customers, but also doesn’t release a product until it is ready to use in the field. All I have to say is ‘chapeau!’ Congratulations and thank you for this wonderful product.”

“I have personally been representing SSL in Hungary for more than 15 years,” says Peter Csillag, owner of AudioMonde. “When I established my own company, AudioMonde, five years ago, I knew immediately that I wanted to continue to distribute SSL and be a member of that great family. I am very proud of the results we have accomplished during this time, and I look forward to even more successes with the addition of the SSL Live. I recently attended the training course at SSL’s headquarters in Begbroke, which fully confirmed for me that SSL has once again developed another great product. Having previously worked as a front of house engineer for a long time, I know the market well and I am very happy to have the opportunity to represent SSL in the Hungarian PA/sound reinforcement market.”

“SSL has long been established in both Austria and Hungary,” says Philippe Guerinet, Director of International Sales for SSL. “Our Area Sales Managers, Tim Harrison and Anthony Gofton have been working closely for many years with Mario and Peter, respectively, for distribution of our broadcast music products, so the SSL Live was a natural addition to both the TSAMM and AudioMonde product portfolios. Both companies’ experience and success in these territories is clear evidence that we are on the right track. We all look forward to successful sales in these regions, and the world over.”

SSL ‘Live’ Console Comes to the 2014 NAMM Show

“Initial industry response to the SSL Live console has been phenomenal… we are expecting a very busy demo schedule at the show.”

ANAHEIM – Solid State Logic, the world’s leading manufacturer of creative tools for audio professionals, is featuring Live, the company’s first console for live sound production, at the 2014 NAMM Show (Booth 6900). This will be the first west coast presentation of the console in a trade show and thus the first opportunity for hands-on demos for the professional live audio engineer community in the region.

“The initial industry response to the SSL Live console has been phenomenal,” says Piers Plaskitt, CEO of Solid State Logic, Inc. “We have been continuously busy at each event where we have shown the console, and we expect NAMM to follow the trend. It is extremely satisfying to see the responses of engineers during product demonstrations as feature after feature exceeds their expectation, and the realization grows that this console is really rather special. It is going to be another exciting show for SSL.”

About the SSL Live console:
Live is all about power and control and is perfectly suited to touring or installation, FOH or monitor systems for venues, arenas, houses of worship and concert halls. Featuring complete flexibility and an intelligent user interface, it is especially ideal for any situation in which audio quality is important.

Based on SSL’s new Tempest processing platform, Live is deployed in a uniquely versatile way. The headline numbers are as impressive as the price, with 976 inputs and outputs and 192 full processing audio paths at 96kHz. How those paths are configured is extremely flexible with power allocated to Channels, Auxes, Stem Groups and Masters, configured to suit the needs of each show. All processing is built into the console surface as well as a collection of I/O connectivity built into the frame. A full range of Stagebox I/O connects to the console via MADI, with the potential for larger systems to make use of SSL’s own Blacklight technology that carries up to 256 channels of bi-directional audio and control via a single fibre connection.

Console power is really nothing if it can’t be controlled and Live offers a truly excellent control surface. It combines a tablet-style multi-gesture touch screen with elegant hardware ergonomics, excellent visual feedback and a collection of innovative new features. It enables engineers to work exactly how they work today, whether they prefer new touch screen or classic hardware technology, or a combination of both, and offers new and better ways of doing things that will make the operator’s life less stressful and more creative.

Being an SSL, Live has legendary audio performance as standard. Impeccable audio quality is a primary design feature from studio-grade SuperAnalogue™ mic preamps, 24bit/96kHz A/D D/A conversion, to 64bit internal processing and 96kHz operation throughout. An obsession with quality also shines through an array of Live’s channel processing tools that bear the classic SSL tone, but bring a completely new level of precision, flexibility and usability. Live features an impressive collection of 30 new effects and audio analysis tools that take SSL’s acclaimed studio-grade processing and re-crafts it for live, with the additional benefit of giving the effects and analysis tools its own dedicated processing power.

As has been the case so many times in the last few decades, SSL has taken a new approach to the way professional engineers work and created an inspired console that builds upon the way things are done today while offering the potential for a new, exciting and more creative way to work tomorrow.

Live is now shipping.

DPA Microphones Camps Out at Hume Lake

California-based Christian Camp Relies on d:fine™ Miniature Headset Mics for Chapel Services, Performances and During Road Trips

HUME, CA, JANUARY 9, 2014 – Whether the staff at Hume Lake Christian Camp are performing services at home or on the road, one thing is certain, they will be using DPA Microphones’ d:fine Miniature Headset Microphones. With services held at four camps situated on 360 acres in Sequoia National Park, its campus in San Diego and its 400-acre camp in Connecticut, as well as during outreach trips to locations such as Hawaii, South Africa and Papua New Guinea, Hume Lake needs high-quality headset microphones that will stand up to the rigors of repeated use.

A popular Christian Camp, Hume Lake is not just active during the summer. Throughout the year, the facility hosts as many as 35,000 people between its 10-week winter camp, off-site trips and a variety of weekend retreats – such as those for mothers/daughters, marriages and firefighters. During Hume Lake’s 10-week summer series, as many as 3,000 students (age K-12) can be found in the four Sequoia campuses and upwards of 1,000 at its San Diego location, each week. With such a large attendance and broad spectrum of events comes speakers, services and drama performances, all of which rely on the DPA d:fine Headset Microphones and d:fine 4066 Miniature Headset Microphones.

“A typical camp chapel service at Hume Lake entails a featured speaker as well as live drama with as many as 15 mik’ed actors,” explains Rob McInteer, Hume Lake Camp technical arts director and Hume Lake Studios engineer. “A couple of our camps also have live plays that run nightly throughout the week. We usually use the wireless d:fines for these dramatic performances. Needless to say, with the environment that we’re in, the mics get handled quite a bit and we needed something that was robust and rugged, and the d:fines have held up really well.”

An audio professional first and foremost, McInteer was most impressed with the sound quality of the d:fines. “Sonically there’s no comparison between the DPA d:fine and other mics on the market,” he explains. “Because of that, there’s a whole lot less work for us. You put it on someone and it’s a real, natural sound right out of the gate. This is nice for our summer staffers, because it takes little effort for them to get an even and smooth sound from the pastor or speaker.”

In addition to the sermons, a wide variety of dramatic and musical performances, as well as audio playback, take place at the venues during the week. As the variety of people who perform during these events may not be familiar with using headset microphones, the camp needed a solution that would provide a high level of comfort.
“The one thing I’ve heard from my seasoned speakers is that the mics are comfortable,” adds McInteer. “Over the course of the year we have as many as 150 speakers come through, and everyone compliments how the mics feel. As soon as the mics are on, they fit the speakers really well and stay in place. We’ve had problems in the past with other mics slipping or rolling, or even peeling off the side of their face, but not the d:fines. They always stay in place. They’ve been a really stout and stable solution for us.”

Founded in 1946, Hume Lake Christian Camps’ Sequoia Park location is comprised of the Ponderosa, and Wild Wood high school camps, Meadow Ranch junior high camp, and Wagon Train elementary camp. Hume Lake also hosts a five-week camp at Point Loma Nazarene College in San Diego and recently purchased over 400 acres of property in scenic New England, where they are building and recruiting for an east coast campus, which currently hosts as many as 200 summer students each week.

DPA Microphones Makes Some Noise at the 2014 NAMM Show

Company to feature its latest “d:” branded mic offerings and host performances by SHEL

ANAHEIM, JANUARY 8, 2014 – Folk pop band SHEL will once again be the headlining act for DPA Microphones at the 2014 NAMM Show (Booth 7119). Longtime fans of the company, SHEL is made up of four sisters (Sarah, Hannah, Eva and Liza Holbrook) who will perform using DPA’s d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Mics and d:facto™ II Vocal Microphones equipped with a variety of adapters. Additionally, the company is announcing a full product “d:” branding, which includes the absorption of the current 4060, 4071, 4080 and 4090 Miniature Mics into the d:screet™ Miniature Microphones group and the addition of the ever-popular 4066 and 4088 Miniature Headsets to the d:fine™ Headset Microphone category.

In addition to watching full performances from the group, attendees will have the unique opportunity to hear the true quality of the mics employed in SHEL’s setup at personal listening stations located throughout the DPA Microphones booth. Hailing from the artistic community of Fort Collins, Colorado, these classically trained musicians blend classical music with pop elements for an eccentric sound that is youthful and upbeat, yet highly emotive.

Announced at DPA Microphones’ recent Partner Conference, the unveiling of the new d:screet Miniature Microphone name is another step in the company’s plans for full “d:” branding. With the company’s 4080 Miniature Cardioid Lavalier, 4060 Miniature Omni-series and 4090/91 Recording/Measuring Microphones and the new 4098 Podium Microphones now part of the d:screet line, customers have the ultimate set of solutions.

“A few years ago, we decided to change the names of our new products to make them more recognizable and easy to remember,” says Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones. “In the past, our products were branded with numbers, which were difficult to understand and remember unless you were a DPA aficionado. We wanted names that were more meaningful and more interesting, so we found words starting with the letter ‘d’ that fit the significance to the ‘d:’ (colon) branding. Starting product lines with a ‘d’ makes it easier for fans to remember what they are using as it connects the mics to the DPA name. We also felt that leaving out the second letter gave it a graphic element that worked well with our new DPA design.”
Created for use with wireless systems in theater, television and close-miked instrument applications, the d:screet 4060 omni capsule is highly unobtrusive, which lends itself to an exceedingly accurate omnidirectional pattern, while the d:screet 4080 cardioid is acoustically pre-equalized and well suited for broadcast, conference and other live performances in the studio or in the field. The DPA d:screet 4090 is a high-quality omnidirectional condenser microphone with a uniquely natural and open sound, that is suitable for instrument miking applications in the studio, on stage or for system alignment.
Also on display is the company’s d:dicate Recording Microphone line, which combines the company’s best new and existing capsules and preamplifiers to deliver superior sound across many applications where the microphones have not been widely used before, such as live sound applications for touring and installation purposes. Included in the range are the new modular MMC4018 Supercardioid Capsule and the well-known MMC4007 High-SPL Omnidirectional Capsule, now re-launched for modular use.

Rounding out the d:dicate line are microphones from the familiar and well-loved DPA former Reference Standard series, including the modular 4000 and 2000 Series. All of the d:dicate capsules can be combined with the company’s state-of-the-art preamps, including the A, which is a Class A transformerless design; the B, a low cut and high boost filter version; the compact C option for visual unobtrusive miking; and the new modular active MMP-E cable for hanging or table applications. An MMP-F modular boom pole is available for podium or floor stand use of the d:dicate capsules.

In addition to the 4066 and 4088 Headset Microphones, which are available as both classic and d:fine options, users will have a chance to check out the d:facto II Vocal Microphone and d:vote 4099 Instrument Microphones.
