Emmy-Nominated Sound Mixer Calls on 4061
Miniature Omnidirectional Mics
To Provide Natural Sound and Superior Audio Quality for TV Sitcom
LOS ANGELES, MARCH 25, 2020 â€“ Veteran Sound Mixer Bryan â€œSolâ€ Aponte relies on DPA Microphonesâ€™ 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Mic to capture the hilarious and witty dialogue of one of the networkâ€™s top sitcoms, mixed-ish. Aponteâ€™s 20-year history in the industry features an impressive resume that includes two Emmy nominations and credits on MADtv, Workaholics, American Gangster, The Young and the Restless and Splitting up Together. He recently swapped out his previous lavaliers for the 4061s because of the impressive, natural sound quality these DPA mics provide.
â€œIâ€™ve been using the DPA lavs for a year now and I absolutely love them,â€ says Aponte. â€œMy audio utility, the legendary Nick Carbone, first introduced me to themâ€”he spoke so highly of DPA microphones in comparison to other manufacturersâ€™ solutions. When I first tested the 4061s, I fell in love with them and immediately replaced my inventory of lavaliers with DPAs. The presence boost on the 4061s not only sounds natural, but you can place them almost anywhere on talent and capture great sound.â€
The decision to switch to DPA was an easy one for Aponte. â€œPrior to using DPA mics, I really didnâ€™t know what I was missing, but after using them for a year, I feel like they are far superior,â€ he adds. â€œOnce I heard the mics and did side-by-side comparisons with other manufacturers, I knew I couldnâ€™t afford not to use DPA. The 4061s donâ€™t create microphonic noiseâ€”a challenge that Iâ€™ve faced with other brandsâ€”and they take my mixing game to the next level.â€
With a capsule designed with a double vent protection system and moisture resistant materials, the 4061 miniature lavalier features a condenser element with a frequency and sensitivity response that will accurately reproduce audio signals from the human voice. Additionally, Aponte appreciates the added benefits he receives from DPAâ€™s concealer clip, designed specifically for the 4061. â€œThe concealer clip has helped me to solve an issue with which I have long struggledâ€”clothing rustle, which is every mixerâ€™s worst nightmare and a challenge we are constantly trying to overcome,â€ he explains. â€œSince incorporating DPA into the mix, that problem is nearly non-existent; they are a game changer.â€
In the short time since incorporating the 4061s into his workflow, Aponte has also added DPAâ€™s 6060 CORE Subminiature Microphones to his inventory. â€œI started using DPAâ€™s 6060 CORE as a â€˜behind the buttonâ€™ micâ€™ing option, and I love it,â€ he adds. â€œItâ€™s amazing how small the capsule is without compromising on sound quality.â€
Set in the 1980s, mixed-ish follows Tracee Ellis Rossâ€™ black-ish character, Rainbow Johnson, as she recounts her experience growing up in a mixed-race family which moves from a hippie commune to the suburbs.
