Esperanza Spalding tours Asia with DPA’s d:facto

Published: ASIA

ASIA: Bassist and vocalist Esperanza Spalding utilised a DPA d:facto vocal microphone for all live vocals for her current tour that recently came to Japan and South Korea. Ms Spalding is touring with her new project Radio Music Society with a set-up of further microphones from DPA.

‘We are using a full range of d:vote 4099 instrument microphones and have employed them on piano, upright bass and saxophone,’ said sound engineer Jaime Armengol. ‘They are really great and are giving incredible results that everyone is very happy with.’

Continuing, Mr Armengol confessed: ‘To begin with I didn’t tell Esperanza that I had changed her microphone, but when we started sound checking she said: “What did you do with my vocal? It sounds much better and more natural”. After that we decided to make the switch to the d:facto and Esperanza is now using it for her vocals during this year’s touring.

‘I was really impressed with the optimised proximity effect and so far I have not had any problems with feedback or pop and handling noise,’ he enthused. ‘I also liked the linearity in frequency and phase and the impressive off-axis response. It is a powerful microphone and DPA has done a really good job. Esperanza enjoyed the d:facto from the first minute she used it – and so did I,' he added. ‘Being able to use it on this tour is a wish fulfilled for me.’
