Thanks for taping Dosh.  I love Dosh!  His last album Forever 1972 is incredible.  Your tape sounds perfect too.  The Sennheiser's I chose have a really punchy sound that I loved when previewing samples.  I mostly end up taping loud rock shows so I think they will fit the bill quite well and in stereo all the better...

Thanks for the kind words, and your response just reminded me he's doing a free show to promote the physical release of his newest album this Friday. I need to check in with Dosh to see if I'm good to tape.

Are you running an A10? An A10 uses the terminology audio in instead of line in.

Thanks so much.  I didn't want to freak you out but Marty's an old friend of mine - college roommates.  In fact we're meeting up next month in LA to work on a recording project that I'm helping produce!  Now that's taping! :)  Cheers, Toby

Love the local angle of this Willie!  Hey does anyone have any thoughts on if or when to use the caps that are provided with these lavalier clip-on mics?  I get the windshield one but not the others like this.

That's awesome! Marty is good people, my first show I went to without my parents was Dosh + Andrew Bird playing a small room together in 2006, and was surprised to hear he still remembers that gig. Tell Marty taper Brian from Minneapolis says hi!

Good luck with your project!

like DPA 406x, the end caps (DPA calls them 'grids') modify the high frequency response

RTFM saves the day!

Your microphone is delivered with two slip-on caps of different lengths.
You may use these caps for high-note emphasis. Slip the cap on the
head of the microphone until it locks into place.
Please refer to the frequency diagrams in the appendix.
• Short slip-on cap: MZC2-1 Cat. no. 076612
• Long slip-on cap: MZC2-2 Cat. no. 076645


one of the graphs on pg 13:



none of those are really specific to your application, so you'll need to experiment a bit to find the sound you like.

most of the DPA 406x tapers use the more mild "soft boost' grid, or no grid at all (i dont have the response handy for the latter) @gutbucket would be a good person to ask

4060 no grid frequency response. Kind of goes in the "RTFM" category (it has been posted here numerous times)...

This was powered with a:
SP-SPSB-10 – Micro-mini 12v microphone power supply

Ok, looping back to this, the manual states this mic should only be powered with 48V phantom power.

"Before operation
• Only connect the product to microphone inputs or power supply units
which provide 48 V phantom powering as per IEC 61938 (48 ± 4 V, at
least 3.5 mA per channel). "

^ There are many different versions of the MKE 2, so it gets pretty confusing, but I think the MKE 2-EW Gold from the OP is terminated in a 3.5 mm mini-jack and is spec'd for 7.5 V operating voltage.

Ah, my bad. That's what I get for reading the (wrong) manual ;)
