Audix launches the DP-Quad specifically for drums and percussion.
Featuring the D6 for kick, i5 for snare and two ADX51’s for overhead, the DP-Quad is intended to create a blend effect between close and overhead miking.
The D6 and i5 are dynamic microphones designed for close miking; a technique that is required in order to capture the attack and percussive sound of the drum. The ADX51 is a pre-polarized condenser microphone with a 14mm gold sputtered diaphragm which is designed for overhead applications.Depending on positioning, the ADX51’s will pick up the high-hat, tom fills, cymbals and ambiance of the entire kit.
Audix provides a video with every pack demonstrating specific set up requirements for each mic individually along with detailed examples of how the four mics work in tandem to create sound for both live and recording applications.
The DP-Quad comes with mic stand adapters for each mic and a DVICE rim mount for the i5 on snare.
Pricing & Availability:
Packaged in an aluminum flightcase, the DP-Quad is available through authorized Audix dealers at a suggested list price of $825.
