Los Angeles, CA (February 17, 2016)—Production sound mixer Daniel S. McCoy, CAS turned to DPA Microphones’ d:screet 4098 supercardioid microphones to record the dialog for the new Comedy Central series, Not Safe With Nikki Glaser.
McCoy, owner and operator of ToneMesa, Inc., a Los Angeles-based location and post-production audio company, used d:screet 4098 mics to capture audio for all of the show’s field shoots at various locations.
McCoy was able to plant the d:screet 4098 in all types of environments where the show shoots, including gentlemen’s club and taxis; he also placed them near hidden cameras in houses, hiding the mics under televisions and between cushions. “The d:screet 4098 does a really nice job of pulling away the background noise and focusing on the voice,” says McCoy.
“It is voiced for voice, if you will. The way the diaphragm is tuned and the way the mic works is excellent. I don’t have to run hours and hours of wired mics, I can just swap the d:screet 4098 onto my Wisycom transmitters, gain up a little bit, depending on how far it is from the person, and I am good to go.”
Hosted by Glaser, Not Safe with Nikki Glaser combines chats with comedians, pre-taped vignettes and social experiments. The series debuts this month on Comedy Central.
