New York, NY (August 2, 2017)—Producer/EDM mainstay Anders Trentemøller is touring the European festival market this summer, playing 20 festivals as he brings his indie EDM sound to the masses. Helping on that score are a slew of DPA mics, chosen by Trentemøller and his FOH engineer Sune Snellman Jakobsen.
Among the mics on-hand are no less than 10 d:dicate2011C twin diaphragm cardioid compact microphones; four d:vote 4099D instrument microphones; a d:vote 4099CM Instrument microphone with clamp mount; a pair of d:facto 4018VL linear vocal microphones; and two d:dicate 4017C compact shotgun microphones.
“We are using d:dicate 2011C mics on the kick drum, snare drum, hi-hats, drumkit overhead and on the bass amp,” saaid Jakobsen. “The d:vote instrument microphones are being used under the snare drum, on toms and for some percussion. The mics we are using on drums for the Trentemøller tour give a true and natural reproduction of the source—very transparent high end, fat low end and they have a clear and flat midrange, which allows me to tweak the tone and transients of the drums to our liking. They also easily handle the high levels and give good separation of the drums.”
Lars Peter Jensen, monitor engineer, concurred, noting, “We can have a natural and clean sound in the monitor in-ear mixes and tweak the channels to shape to our desired sound in the PA mix.”
