In 2017 I had the chance to spend a few weeks in Australia. I knew in advance some of the remote places I intended to visit have quite amazing sonic prints and I didn’t have much room in my baggage to fit in the bulkier blimps and recorders so I needed to come up with a smaller and more portable recording package. I have always wanted to experiment with quasi binaural recordings as well so my choice this time was a DPA D:Vice hooked to the smartphone and a pair of DPA 4060 hung into a couple of AirPod straps both fit into my ears. The mics were covered with Rycote fur which although weren’t enough for the most extreme wind noise, they worked good in most other situations.
Equipment: DPA D:Vice, DPA 4060 Pair, Apogee Metarecorder
