DPA Microphones Introduces Portable, Studio-Quality Audio With d:vice Digital Audio Interface

DPA Microphones is introducing the d:vice MMA-A Digital Audio Interface, a preamp for live recording and mobile journalists in the field. Working together with any iOS device, Mac or PC computer, broadcasting or recording clear sound anywhere in the world is easier than ever.

Journalists around the world are already using their smartphones to capture the news, which works fairly well with today’s phones being capable of taking high-quality pictures and videos. For news broadcasts, it is just as important to have audio quality that matches or exceeds the video for the message to be understood. This is the challenge that the d:vice is designed to solve. When used with a DPA microphone, the d:vice is able to capture or stream audio in quality previously only available in the studio. When it’s not possible to have an experienced sound engineer on site, DPA says the d:vice can act as a “mini sound engineer in your pocket.”

The d:vice MMA-A Digital Audio Interface is a two-channel microphone preamp and A/D converter offering mono, dual and stereo capabilities. This flexibility allows a user to prepare for unexpected situations. Whether it be a two-channel interview situation or a session of recording ambience sound in stereo, the d:vice makes it easier for journalists to do their job.  

The d:vice comes with interchangeable lightning and USB cables for connectivity. Its MicroDot inputs allow the d:vice to be connected to all DPA miniature microphones, including the d:screet Miniature, d:fine Headset, d:vote Instrument and even the d:dicate Recording microphones with the optional MMP-G preamp.  

At about two inches in diameter, the d:vice Digital Audio Interface is compact, easily fitting in the users’ pocket. It provides best-in-class audio quality and is controlled through a remote application on any iOS device. An exclusive DPA app is available for download from the Apple App store. The app makes the users’ job even easier, allowing them to store gain settings and low-cut filters for ongoing and future personalized use in dedicated presets. Third-party applications can be used to accomplish specific tasks, including but not limited to live broadcast and high quality recordings.
