Join B&H’s Rob Rives as he takes to the financial district to test out the DPA’s d:vice 2-channel interface, which connects microphones to mobile devices and USB ports, allowing you to record clear, crystalline audio on location. Hear its low-noise preamps and high-quality A/D converters in action, as Greg Johnson plays a ragtime tune on a piano near a fountain. This instrument, placed in New York City by the Sing for Hope Organization, has been miked in stereo, and sports a clear, articulate sound—even in the midst of this bustling New York City location. Come for the d:vice, stay for the excellent music, available in the public domain, and played wonderfully in a public domain.

In the following video, Rob Rives, from B&H, discusses the Audio-Technica AT8024 camera-mount microphone. With the microphone mounted on a Canon 5D mk III, the video explores the microphone’s two settings: one for a mono cardioid pickup pattern and one for an internally matrixed mid-side stereo pattern.  The video compares the sound quality of the microphone to the camera’s built-in microphone, demonstrates the integrated shock mount that attaches to the camera’s shoe mount, as well as noting the 100-hour battery life from a single AA battery. The microphone includes a-10 dB and a-20 dB pad for recording sounds up to 148 dB, and an optional 80 Hz high-pass filter to help reduce hum and wind noise.
