Sound engineer

  • Quel que soit le système sans fil que vous utilisez, seuls le résultat audio et la stabilité de votre équipement comptent. Nous  avons inclus dans nos systèmes UHF un nouveau DSP (Digital Signal Processor) très performant pour une gestion numérique des fréquences.

    Cette nouvelle technologie vous permet de retrouver en UHF une meilleure stabilité et une meilleure précision des fréquences pour être le plus proche possible du son d'un système filaire. Votre voix ou votre instrument peuvent donc s'exprimer en UHF avec un équilibre du son sans concession.

    Quant à la partie UHF, notre électronique est conçue pour résister aux interférences qui peuvent survenir et vous garantir l'intégrité du signal en toute situation.

  • The DSP circuit from Prodipe's M850 range is also used in the UHF B210 Solo and Duo models. It's perfect for managing UHF frequencies.

    With DSP technology, UHF provides the type of quality you'd expect from a wired system. Enjoy the excellent sound balance when you play music. It's wireless meets wired.

    And as for the UHF side of things, the electronics have been designed to resist interference and guarantee the integrity of the signal at all times.

  • Of all the components in a mic, the one that has to be infallible is the capsule. We have developed a unidirectional capsule for the VL21 violin mic because cardioid capsules and their mounting can cause problems for musicians. They are also aesthetically dubious (especially in videos).

    Our capsule is as close as possible to the sound source, just beneath the strings, tight against the soundboard, ensuring that the recording is richer in harmonics and more dynamic.

    I have called upon only the best musicians to test the mic systems: Patrick Bourgoin for the saxophone, Yvon Guillard for the trumpet, Claude Salmiéri for percussion of course, Clément Garcin for the guitar and ukulele, Jean-Claude Auclin for the cello and Gérard Prévost for the double bass.

    Our inspiration for developing the capsule has been DPA's range of instrument mics, the most reputed mics in the field. We have constantly compared the performance of our mics with DPA's.

    Each of the 21 Series mic systems is priced at 99 euros. But don't let the price be the deciding factor. Buy the mic for its pro quality, because that's our objective: to make pro quality available to everyone. And with this new range, Prodipe have done it again. They just can't stop making their mark on the world of pro audio.

     

  • When you're using a wireless system, the absolute priority is audio output and stability. We've added a new, high performing DSP to manage the frequencies in our UHF systems.

    DSP technology gives greater UHF stability and precision, practically matching the type of quality you'd expect from a wired system. Enjoy the excellent sound balance when you sing or play music in UHF.

  • Of all the components in a mic, the one that has to be infallible is the capsule. For the new Prodipe instrument mic range we have perfected an electret capsule here in France which can handle up to 140dB. And with this level of performance, our mic will preserve the full harmonic envelope and warmth of your instrument.

    Our inspiration for developing the capsule has been the most reputed mics in the field. We have constantly compared the performance of our mics with DPA's.

    Each of the 21 Series mic systems is priced at 109 euros. But don't let the price be the deciding factor. Buy the mic for its pro quality, because that's our objective: to make pro quality available to everyone.

    And with this new range, Prodipe have done it again. They just can't stop making their mark on the world of pro audio.

     

  • Being able to contribute to the creation of professional products of similar quality to those of the big players in the market, but at an affordable price, has been a huge personal challenge.

     

    The gamble has paid off!

  • Imagine a guitar that sounds the same whether you have your amp on or off.

    The Natural 5 and Natural 6 have been designed for guitarists and players of acoustic instruments. It's easy to move around and gives a sound which is incredibly faithful to the original.

  • I started out in the music business more than thirty years ago and at the time the professional sound equipment we worked with was heavy, bulky and expensive, but great on sound quality.

    Then lighter professional systems appeared, and although the sound quality didn't change, the price of the equipment was still out of reach for most people. JBL is one of the brands that comes to mind - they really understood what professionals needed.

    And after that, well, everything went a little crazy. We've had a stream of plastic products these last few years, each one as bad as the next, and the manufacturers expect us to believe that this new equipment is compact and affordable!

    Sound is what I know best. When events organisers have had to rely on this type of plastic equipment, I find it hard to listen to the results.

    With Prodipe's help I can give you the real McCoy all over again.
