Dynaudio has formed a series of partnerships with some of the most respected pro audio brands to equip its Dynaudio Unheard pop-up studio.
(Anaheim, California – Thursday January 17, 2019) Danish loudspeaker specialist Dynaudio has been working closely with The 2019 NAMM Show to give unsigned artists the chance to get their big break, but another series of partnerships has also been formed with fellow industry brands in order to equip the full-blown Dynaudio Unheard recording studio inside and out.
The concept demands an incredibly complex, technical setup, as the task is not only to record the bands. At the same time, a separate multi-channel audio feed is sent to a front-of-house PA system, and yet another feed is passed on to a video-editing team. Finally, the artists also need to have their own headphone-monitor mix. In short, it’s a studio recording session combined with a live concert and near-real- time broadcast.
To start at the very beginning of the signal chain, Dynaudio teamed up with DPA Microphones, who provides a large and versatile range of d:facto vocal mics, d:dicaterecording mics, d:vote instrument mics, d:screet miniature mics, and a d:sign podium mic used for talkback from the mixing room.
The mixing and audio-routing backbone of the system is provided by Waves Audio and Digital Audio Denmark. For mixing and FOH, two Waves eMotion LV1 systems are installed, and to gather all of the audio signals for AD-conversion and distribution, a Digital Audio Denmark AX32 converter and audio-router has been expanded with 24 channels of mic preamps.
For the headphone-based monitoring set-up, Klang Technologies provides a KLANG:fabrik3D-in-ear monitoring system that lets each musician to create his or her own mix and positioning in a virtual 3D space, along with three KLANG:quelle headphone preamps. In connection with that, Shure delivers eight of its SRH1540 closed-back premium headphones.
Further, the vast majority of the backline, as well as the PA system, is provided by Yorkville, who is also the North American distributor of Dynaudio’s professional studio monitors. The only backline exception is a Clavia Nordstage 3 88 stage piano, delivered by Clavia’s North American distributor American Music & Sound.
Finally, Zaor has provided a Miza Jr MKII studio table along with two Croce speaker stands for the mixing room.
“We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the support shown by our fellow industry brands and their enthusiasm about becoming a part of our ‘Unheard adventure’,” says Global Marketing Director Christian Bennike. “We had a clear idea of what we would need right from the start, but in many cases our new partners suggested further additions from their product ranges to make the experience even better. So, while we set the equipment bar high from the start, our partners helped us raise it even further. We’re proud that all of our ‘partners in gear’ are top-quality brands that hold a top-shelf position in their respective categories.”
