"Necesitábamos un gran micrófono en vivo que pudiera transmitir claramente el sonido de James sin demasiado ambiente indeseado, especialmente porque hace muchas bucles vocales sobre la marcha", dice Harley. "The d: facto ™ es sólido como una roca con un patrón polar ajustado para las voces en el escenario, lo que permite que nuestro ingeniero de monitores logre un sonido vocal fantástico y limpio para James y un excelente sonido en todas partes. Es el micrófono perfecto para este tipo de música, que tiene mucho espacio alrededor para que las voces se sienten. También es muy sólido y realmente se nota la diferencia entre d: facto ™ y algunos de los viejos fieles que solía usar ".more

Mentioned by sound system engineer Francois "Frankie" Desjardins in this May 28, 2018 *Live Design* article. > As the relationship continued to build, so did the show's use of DPA microphones. "In 2013, DPA introduced us to the **d:facto FA4018V Vocal Microphone** and we were intrigued," adds Desjardins. "Celine is always keen to try new technologies so we were able to get her to try the d:facto vocal mic and she liked it. We were very happy with the natural sound in the room and the new mic gave us a better definition in the low/mid, and a sweeter sound in the high/mid. It was a really good match for Celine, so we added the d:facto to our rotation of vocal microphones for each show." > > In total, Desjardins and Savage use more than 40 DPA microphones for each performance including Dion's three **d:facto FA4018V Vocal Microphones** (which include main wireless, spare wireless and wired), four **d:facto FA4018V Vocal Microphones** for the backup singers and guests, two **d:dicate 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphones** on the snare drums, 19 **d:vote 4099 mics** for the strings and brass sections, eight **d:screet 4091 Omnidirectional Microphones** for the sound system analyser, two **d:dicate 4007 Omnidirectional Microphones** for sound system tuning and six **d:screet 4061 Miniature Omnidirectional Microphones** for the crowd under the balcony.more
