Atlanta, GA (May 16, 2016)—Production sound mixer Chris Durfy, CAS has been using DPA Microphones on the set of the upcoming Netflix show, Stranger Things, which was written and directed by Matt and Ross Duffer. Set in 1980s Indiana, the show takes place after a young boy seemingly vanishes into thin air.
On Stranger Things, Durfy uses his DPA mics to record audio for most of the show’s stage work in the studio, as well as field shoots.
“One of the things that I really like about the DPA line is that it is totally modular,” says Durfy. “You can switch from a d:dicate 4017 to a 4018 using the same preamp in the time that it takes you to unscrew and re-screw in the desired capsule.
In addition to his DPA microphones, Durfy’s rig also consists of the Sound Devices PIX 260i rack-mount video/audio recorder, a Yamaha QL1 mixing console and Lectrosonics Venue and Venue 2 wireless systems.
