Mu-Mu Audio, a company that specialises in location based recording and live sound hire, is using DPA microphones as part of a bespoke system that allows venues to create a variable acoustic without having to undergo expensive or complex building work. Nebula, the system devised by Mu-Mu founders Matthew Devenish and Paul Jones, uses DSP and live processing to create the desired acoustic effect, regardless of the actual sound of the space. It does this by capturing audio using a stereo pair of DPA d:dicate 4011A Cardioid Microphones and feeding it through processing software specifically written for Mu-Mu. The processed sound is then replayed through a selection of Fohhn loudspeakers, which creates a reverb effect giving the impression of a larger, more live sounding space.
