DPA microphones take centre stage at the GMAs
The Golden Melody Awards (GMAs) are an annual awards ceremony taking place in Taipei. Regarded as the equivalent of the Grammys in the Chinese-speaking world, the awards recognise exceptional achievements within the world of music and performance. Since 2017, DPA microphones have been used for the GMAs. For this year’s ceremony, however, which was held once again at the Taipei Arena, Winly Production Services chose to deploy DPA’s d:sign 4098 supercardioid gooseneck mics for speeches for the first time.
‘DPA’s 4098 supercardioid microphones offer much clearer and more transparent sound than the microphones we were previously using, plus the miniature capsule is so slim and so amazingly small that is doesn’t block the faces of the speakers,’ explained Andy Chen, president of Winly Production Services and GMA production manager. ‘Another key advantage of the 4098 is its reliability. Like all DPA microphones, it can withstand hot and cold temperatures and dry or humid environments, which is a key asset for live performances.’
