Hollywood, CA (March 21, 2016)—Orchestra setup coordinator Dan Vicari used DPA Microphones for this year’s Oscars telecast from the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
For this year’s show, the 88th annual Academy Awards celebration, Vicari used DPA’s d:dicate 4011A cardioid microphones and d:vote 4099 instrument microphones to amplify the large orchestra’s sound from its location under the stage and for the studio pre-records.
In all, Vicari used two d:dicate 4011As and 17 d:vote 4099 microphones for the production.
“DPA Microphones has been our go-to manufacturer of choice for the Oscars for quite some time now, and once again, delivered a wonderful, pristine sound during the show,” said Vicari. “The d:vote 4099s and d:dicate 4011A mics I set up inside the piano worked perfectly. I was able to attach the mics with magnetic mounts and close the lid for isolation. The d:dicate 4011As I set up for the drum overheads gave Tommy Vicari, orchestra mixer, a great overall drum sound, including smooth cymbals.”
