Jünger Audio Unveils the V*AP Voice Processor To Asian Broadcasters

Dynamics specialist Jünger Audio will be showing its new V*AP two channel voice processor at Broadcast Asia 2013 (Booth 5E6-01). This will give broadcasters in the region their first opportunity to view a product that is specifically designed to make life easier for engineers working in radio stations and TV production voice-over studios.

V*AP, the latest addition to Jünger Audio’s award-winning *AP family of products, draws on the company’s extensive experience with previous Voice Processing devices such as its v-series, but adds new tools and algorithms to create a new, easier and more efficient approach to voice processing with no compromise in sound quality.

V*AP’s main task is to offer perfect control of microphone recordings. Jünger Audio has also included processing such as HP/LP filtering, dynamic section, full parametric EQ and de-essing. All of the V*AP functions can be easily set up by the audio engineer, making it hassle free for any journalist or reporter to use it. Jünger Audio has also provided a dedicated leveler combined with a voice over circuit to help auto-mix voice programs into loudness-based broadcasting on the fly. Using the optional SDI I/O card automated voice over for embedded audio becomes an attractive feature of the V*AP.

Available as either an insert into a mixing desk or as a stand-alone unit, V*AP offers interfaces that allow integration in existing environments via an AES insert. The unit can also be used with an optional analogue board that adds two high quality mic-preamps.

Another key feature of V*AP is the inclusion of Spectral Signature™, Jünger Audio’s automatic spectral sound management algorithm that dynamically controls spectral balance to create consistent voice recordings meeting a dedicated station sound. Spectral Signature™ can automatically analyze the recording of the voice to create a sound fingerprints that become the reference the algorithm matches to on all subsequent live recordings.

At Broadcast Asia 2013, Jünger Audio will also show its ground-breaking M*AP audio loudness processor, which combines an audio monitor controller and a loudness measurement device in one unit, thus providing comprehensive quality control and loudness monitoring for anyone working in a production or broadcast environment.

Designed for quality checking surround (5.1) and/or stereo programs, M*AP can be used for live monitoring and also to ensure compliance with today’s standards and regulations (ITU 1770-3, ATSC A/85 or EBU R128).

The unit comes with alarm signals that alert the operator when pre-set loudness thresholds are exceeded, and these signals can be delivered by simple GPOs and/or SNMP traps, which carry actual loudness values. Loudness measurements can be performed over a long run or over a fraction of a program, or both. These measurements can be triggered by automation systems via GPIs or via the network – or even manually by buttons of the X*AP remote panel.

Alongside loudness measurements, M*AP also offers functionality for acoustical QA. It has eight speaker outputs that allow for A/B checking of stereo compatibility of a surround downmix through alternative speakers, as well as via L/R front speakers.

Peter Pörs, Managing Director of Jünger Audio, says: “By incorporating 3G, HD and SD auto detection, M*AP gives users the option of dealing with all 16 channels of SDI embedded audio at the same time. This means that you can listen to one program while permanently logging the loudness of two (5.1 +2 mode) or four (4×2 mode) programs. It is also possible to send further embedded programs to M*AP’s AES outputs to feed a third party instrument for analyzing and/or display.”

For no extra cost, the M*AP’s SDI board acts as an embedder as well and comes with video delay to compensate for any kind of audio delay. This feature is ideal for those looking to maintain lip sync in QA suites or control rooms. M*AP also features a built-in Dolby® Metadata generator and an optional Dolby® decoder that allows users to decode Dolby-E, Dolby-D (AC-3) and Dolby Digital plus (E-AC-3).

Jünger Audio will complete its Broadcast Asia line-up with the Award-winning T*AP TV Audio Processor and Loudness Logger, a powerful tool that offers customers of all Jünger Audio levelling processors an easy way to monitor the development of the loudness over time. Using this new software, broadcasters can monitor in real time or by analyzing previously stored loudness log files. This innovation is critical as all broadcasters now need to show precisely how their audio levels are performing in order to comply with new legislation on Loudness.

DPA Microphones Opens A New Office In Hong Kong

Following a record year for sales in the Asia and Pacific regions, DPA Microphones is consolidating its success by opening a new regional office in Hong Kong.

Headed by Ken Kimura, DPA’s general manager for the APAC region, the new office signals DPA’s commitment to its partners and customers by acting as a hub for sales, marketing and after-sales service. It will also enable the company to expand its sales network and develop new business channels in market sectors that have yet to discover the benefit of DPA’s high quality microphone technology and products.

Kimura, who was previously based in Shanghai, says: “Establishing our new office in Hong Kong makes sound economic and geographic sense. By basing our office here we can significantly expand our reach as well as visibility within the entire region and thereby aim our ambitions much higher.”

During the last trading year, DPA’s sales have been on the increase in virtually every APAC country with some showing growth as high as 40%. This incredible success has been achieved by DPA developing strong partnerships with its distributors and dealers so that they can fully support their customers.

Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones, says: “The increased consciousness of good quality in the Asian markets, combined with our ability to develop fantastic products, has resulted in our huge success in this region. To follow up on this we take the next important step by establishing this new office to support our sales partners even more and encourage their commitment to the brand. This support has been delivered in a variety of ways, including listening to our partners’ needs and implementing specific activities such as customer events.”

Renowned for their audio accuracy, reliability and superb engineering, DPA microphones are the first choice for numerous recording and touring artists and sound engineers. The company’s extensive product range also encompasses many other industry areas including broadcast, film, theatre, installation, conferencing and security.

“The breadth and depth of our product range is really quite staggering and gives us plenty of scope to develop our customer base around the world,” Kimura says. “The APAC region is no exception – there are many applications for our technology that have yet to be exploited and our aim is to be highly visible so that we can make the most of these new business opportunities.”

DPA plans to supplement its existing team in Hong Kong with new sales staff and is interested in hearing from any suitable candidates.

DPA Microphones Introduces The New d:dicate™ Recording Microphone Range

DPA Microphones is delighted to announce the launch of the d:dicate™ Recording Microphone range, which combines the best capsules with the best pre-amplifiers to deliver superior sound for all applications where high quality audio is required.

The d:dicate range includes DPA’s new modular MMC4018 supercardioid capsule, the counterpart to the MMC4018V capsule used in the company’s new d:facto™ Vocal Microphone and one that is ideally suited to applications where clarity and audio quality are critical. d:dicate also includes the well-known MMC4007 hi-SPL omnidirectional capsule, previously known as 4007, now in a modular version. Widely used for measurement purposes, this capsule has an unbeatable dynamic range and can handle extremely high sound pressure levels. Both capsules is widely used for picking up drums, percussion, brass instruments – and for measurement purposes. Both are entirely compatible with other d:dicate preamplifiers.

Completing the d:dicate line-up are microphones from the familiar and well-loved DPA Reference Standard series, which has been absorbed into the d:dicate range with all former Reference Standard products now carrying d:dicate branding. These include the modular 4000 and 2000 series, which are manufactured to perform within very narrow tolerances and offer exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. Within the 4000 series there are a wide variety of capsules including the new 4018 supercardiod, 4017 shotgun, 4015 wide cardioid, 4011 cardioid and 4006 omnidirectional. The 2000 series consists of two twin diaphragm capsules – the 2011 cardioid and the 2006 omni versions that are rooted in the design technology of DPA’s classic miniature capsules. All these capsules can be combined with a state-of-the-art A pre-amp, a B pre-amp with low cut and high boost filters, and a C pre-amp, which is a compact version for discreet miking.

Like all DPA microphones, every variant in the d:dicate range delivers clear, transparent and precise sound, along with the robustness and versatility that are the hallmarks of DPA’s ingenious engineering techniques. These high quality microphones are increasingly being employed in harsh live sound environments, particularly on drum kits where there is a demand for exceptional sound quality but where the microphones solution needs to be robust and sturdy so that it can be relied on time after time.

Christian Poulsen, CEO of DPA Microphones, says: “Our new d:dicate Recording Microphone range gives customers the ultimate in flexibility as any microphone in the range can easily be transformed into a new variant simply by choosing a different capsule or preamplifier. Customers will also find that owning several capsules is more cost effective than purchasing a completely new microphone.

“By gathering these microphones into a specific group, d:dicate now joins our other established product groups: d:fine™ Headset Microphones, d:vote™ 4099 Instrument Microphones and d:facto™ Vocal Microphones.”

New accessories have also been developed for the d:dicate Recording Microphone range, including modular active cables (MMP-ER with rear cable entry and MMP-ES with side cable entry) plus modular active booms (MMP-F) that are compatible with all d:dicate capsules. These new microphone solutions can be used in many different situations, for example as a podium microphone on a desktop or podium, suspended for high-end capture or on elegant stage stands. The active booms come in several lengths and configurations with flexible gooseneck and XLR termination, while the new active cable only adds a centimetre to the capsule, making it even more discreet than the compact C pre-amp, while giving comparable performance.

“It was difficult to split the preamplifier construction and make an ultra-compact head without sacrificing the sound quality,” Christian Poulsen adds. “However, we succeeded and now customers can have DPA’s renowned sound quality across many applications where we have not been widely used before, for example installation, concert halls, on stage, etc.”

The two new capsules and new accessories in DPA’s d:dicate Recording Microphones range will be available from August 2013. Former Reference Standard capsules and preamplifiers now included in the d:dicate range are available now.

DPA Microphones Brings Unobtrusive Audio Quality to NRCU

The National Radio Company of Ukraine (NRCU) has expanded its stock of microphones by investing in six DPA Reference Standard 4011C compact cardioid microphones.

Vyacheslav Zhdanov, Head of Audio at NRCU, says “Buying these microphones was not a difficult decision to make. We had previously been renting DPA microphones so our engineers were familiar with them and knew they offered exceptional sound quality. We also knew that, coming from such a well-known Danish company, we would have no problems with their reliability and build quality.”

Zhdanov adds that the small size of DPA’s Reference Standard 4011C compact cardioid microphones was another attractive feature as they can be used discreetly, particularly on television broadcasts.

Designed for situations where unobtrusive miking is required, DPA’s 4011C microphones are ideally suited to television, film, theatre, concert and studio performances where they deliver a clean, natural sound while reducing the noticeable effect of lighting reflection and minimizing bleed from other instruments.

NRCU’s microphones were supplied by DPA’s Ukrainian distributor Realmusic and are now being used to record classical and folk music concerts for radio and television broadcast across all three of its national channels and one international channel. The majority of these recording are taking place at House Recording NCGR in Kiev.

Neumann KH 120 Studio Monitors Deliver Superior Midrange and Truthful Response for Classical Music Producer Leszek Wojcik

Since the early 1970s, Leszek Wojcik has been recording exquisite classical music performances at top venues including Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, The Rose Theater and Carnegie Hall, where he is employed as recording studio manager. Wojcik, who is also a highly sought after freelance classical recording professional, recently acquired a pair of Neumann KH 120 monitors.

Wojcik had been using a competitor’s pair of monitors, but ‘never really fell in love with them.’ He decided to switch to the Neumann KH 120s after one of his classical recording colleagues, Mateusz Zechowski, recommended them, citing their outstanding transparency and natural sound. Since then, they have become a foundational element of his control room and he’s never looked back.

“It took me about 15 seconds to make the decision to switch to the Neumann KH 120s,” Wojcik says. “The midrange is fantastic. It’s very truthful and flat, which is critical in recording classical music. For me, the midrange is the single most important part of a monitor’s sound, because most of the compositions in Western music were written for this range.”

Wojcik, who has a master’s degree in Tonmeister Studies from Chopin Music Academy and who lectures on “Aesthetics of Recording” at New York University, is well versed in both the theory and practice of audio recording and draws from over three decades of experience: “I come from the school that encourages making your decisions based on listening,” says Wojcik. “No two situations are the same in classical music recording so you have to keep searching for the perfect sound and you do this by listening. For this reason, the main component of the control room are the monitors, and the Neumann KH 120s are a great tool.”

Wojcik’s first field test of the KH 120 came during the recording of a performance of an orchestra from Qatar at the United Nations General Assembly Hall in New York City. Wojcik set up his Neumann KH 120s in an alcove adjacent to the hall where he monitored the recording and also sent out a stereo broadcast mix for television. While he was monitoring at low levels, he says that the KH 120s performed admirably, providing a dynamic sound that simplified his job.

For Wojcik, having the right mix of tools is an absolute prerequisite to creating the vibrant recordings he has become known for in the industry. “I’m sure that the chisel and the hammer that Michelangelo used to create his statues were the highest possible quality of the time, and for me, the Neumann KH 120 is a wonderful tool to have — it’s like Michelangelo’s chisel,” Wojcik said.

In addition to the Neumann KH 120 monitors, Wojcik relies heavily on other Neumann and Sennheiser equipment such as Neumann KM series microphones, Sennheiser MKH series microphones — including the Sennheiser multi-pattern MKH 8000 which he uses on the ‘most demanding’ instruments — and a pair of classic Sennheiser HD 580 headphones.

“The basic premise of classical music recording is concert realism,” Wojcik concludes. “The recording should reflect the concert sound. If you go to the ideal concert hall, sit in the ideal seat in the ideal distance from the performance, this is how you should expect to hear a well made recording. Your skill and your choice of tools is immensely important. In my work as a recording recording professional, the Neumann KH 120s are a very important tool for me.”

Perfect for orchestral recordings – the MKH 8090 wide cardioid condenser microphone from Sennheiser

Audio specialist Sennheiser is expanding its MKH studio microphone series with the addition of the MKH 8090, whose wide cardioid pick-up pattern makes it the ideal microphone for orchestral recordings. The RF condenser microphone is perfectly suited as both a main and a spot microphone. An optional screw-on module can be used to convert it into a digital AES42 microphone.

“The MKH 8090 combines omni-directional and cardioid pick-up patterns to produce an impressive orchestral microphone,” explained Kai Lange, product manager for wired microphones at Sennheiser. “Used as a main microphone, it picks up the entire sound body and a healthy proportion of room acoustics, while as a spot microphone it has sufficient directivity to screen out other sound sources without making the recording sound too ‘narrow’.”

Meticulous sound tuning
One of those responsible for fine-tuning the microphone was tonmeister Gregor Zielinsky, International Recording Applications Manager at Sennheiser: “During the development of the MKH 8090, we focused on ensuring that the sound perception of the microphone is precisely between that of the omni-directional MKH 8020 and the cardioid MKH 8040. Through further fine-tuning, we succeeded in creating a microphone with a sound that seems to ‘shine’, and which has great presence and musicality.”

Accessories for (almost) every application
The MKH 8090 benefits from the wide range of accessories available for the 8000 series, such as microphone stands with different heights, various microphone clips, a shock mount, remote cables with different lengths, windshields and accessories for ceiling mounting.

Also available as an accessory is the MZD 8000 digital module, which converts the audio signal of the MKH 8090 into a digital signal according to the AES42 standard (Mode 2) directly at the microphone head, thus ensuring a lifelike, natural sound entirely without cable losses or interference from other sources.

Sennheiser’s MKH series works according to the RF principle, which Sennheiser has been using for more than 50 years and has developed to absolute perfection, for example through the use of symmetrical transducers.

The MKH 8090 will be available in October and will cost $1,199.95.
