DPA Stereo Recording Comparisions - archived from old website
« on: January 14, 2023, 09:05:49 PM »
There was a great resource available on the old DPA website where the same performance of a pro chamber choir was recorded with various mics and configs. It was taken down for some inexplicable reason when DPA redesigned their site several years ago, but I found that I had saved a PDF of the page and all of the FLAC files back in 2015. You can download the entire thing here:

https://send.zcyph.cc/download/05e4c04ff052b93d/#LwW96bGM40wTuhTHAfkWtA

This link expires after 100 downloads or 365 days, but I will gladly share it again if it becomes unavailable.

Note that I added a couple files of my own: 4a was my attempt to match the 4060 as close as I could to the 4006 with EQ, and 4b was the same thing but done with iZotope RX EQ Match. I did this a long time ago and could probably do better now, but you'll get the idea.

^^Great save! I found this and the Schoeps website sampler to be really helpful a number of times.

Thanks, trying to recall exactly what was in there.  I'll try downloading via a different browser at home tonight at home, as its not working with Chrome on this computer.

Note that I added a couple files of my own: 4b was my attempt to match the 4060 as close as I could to the 4006 with EQ, and 4b was the same thing but done with iZotope RX EQ Match. I did this a long time ago and could probably do better now, but you'll get the idea.

Typo there? Is the first manually EQ matched version 4a?
