DPA Microphones Delivers True Sonic Revelation at World-Class Germano Studios

The accuracy and transparency of the company's microphones have been welcomed by staff engineers and key clients, says studio owner and president Troy Germano

(PresseBox) (New York, USA, )
When Troy Germano, president and owner of Germano Studios, was looking to add a modern, state-of-the-art microphone that provided a clear, full range of sound to his studio’s impressive inventory, he turned to DPA Microphones.

Located in the heart of Manhattan’s Noho District, Germano Studios is a cutting edge recording studio that caters to the highest end of R&B, pop, rock and hip-hop artists. The boutique facility includes two recording and mixing studios, and was designed to bring the best of both worlds together in terms of digital and analog recording.

“DPA is an important company that represents quality when it comes to recording microphones,” says Germano. “After the introduction by Gabriel Antonini, [National Sales Support/Business Development Manager for DPA Microphones], the wide range of microphones that DPA has to offer was the clear choice for us. We have gained superior sound capture devices that are already aiding our engineers in numerous tracking and overdub sessions. The d:vote™ Instrument Microphones, the d:dicate™ 2011's and the d:screet™ Miniature mics were the missing jewels that are now part of our treasure chest of equipment. The use of the DPA mics on piano recordings have been a true sonic revelation. The accuracy and transparency are welcomed by our staff engineers and key clients.”

Germano Studios now have several DPA microphones in its inventory, including the d:dicate™ 4018 Supercardioid Microphone Capsule, a pair of d:vote™ Instrument Microphones, a pair of the d:screet™ 4060s and 4061 Miniature Microphones, a pair of the d:dicate™ 2011C Cardiod Microphones, and the d:screet™ BLM 4060 Boundary Layer Microphone.

Kenta Yonesaka, Co-Chief Engineer at Germano Studios, has been using the DPA mics since they arrived. “The d:screet™ 4061 miniature mic has already become my secret weapon. It's an incredible sounding mic with high sensitivity and a smooth high end boost, but what makes it special is its extreme miniaturization and myriad of accessories that lets you place this mic in unthinkable places. My d:screet™ 4061 mics ended up deep inside the soundboard of the piano almost touching the piano wires. With some abusive compression, I was able to get a raunchy tone that worked great for a particular rock track. Combine that sound with room mics and you can get a detailed, controlled picture of the piano with a lot of meat. The d:screet™ 4061 will save your day when you need to mic up a hard-to-reach percussion piece or when your avant-garde singer wants to record the inside of a cassette deck, but you will also find that it's a mic that has flavor of its own and will become one of those mics that you keep grabbing for every session.”

In the time since Germano studios opened on June 8, 2008, world-class recording artists, including Keith Richards, Adele, Eric Clapton, Lady Gaga, John Mayer, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Chris Martin, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Dream Theater, Mark Ronson, John Legend, Meghan Trainor, James Bay, Kygo, Pentatonix, Zayn Malik, Bon Jovi and OneRepublic, have all recorded there.

“It's almost like cheating using these microphones,” adds Yonesaka. “The rejection pattern is so smooth; you cannot mess up with the placement. Whatever you want to bring out with an EQ, it's rich and present. These DPA mics bring back the fun in seeking for unheard tones.”
