Alleroed, Denmark (March 4, 2016)—South Korean recording professional Jung-Hoon Choi has added a selection of DPA d:dicate recording microphones at his newly refurbished Audioguy recording studio.
Choi already owned three d:dicate 4006AE limited edition, gold anniversary omnidirectional microphones and a number of 3521 grand piano stereo kits, consisting of d:dicate 4000 series small diaphragm condenser microphones. To these, he has added three d:dictate 3532-SP large diaphragm stereo kits comprising six matched d:dicate 4041-SP omnidirectional microphones.
Choi has also nabbed four surround microphone kits consisting of d:dicate 4011A cardioid and 4015A wide cardioid microphones, which are held in place with S5 surround mounts. Also now on-hand are 10 more stereo kits in various configurations (with d:dicate 4006A omnidirectional, 4011A cardioid, 2011A cardioid, 2011C compact cardioid matched microphones, just to mention a few), four d:dicate 4011C compact cardioid microphones and eight microphone floor stands.
Based in Seoul, Audioguy specializes in recording traditional Korean Gukak music, as well as more contemporary classical, jazz and acoustic projects. A large part of the studio’s workload involves capturing live sound and for these, says Choi. “Each year, Audioguy records 30 to 40 choral performances in churches and concert halls, often accompanied by organ,” he says. “These are one of the company’s most popular genres.” Among the many Korean and international artists he has collaborated with are Youn-Sun Nah, Inger Marie, Giovanni Mirabassi and Yuhki Kuramoto.
