Gotham Sound Atlanta Now Open Saturdays

This is not the aforementioned t-shirt.
To see that, you'll have to come in Saturday!

We know everyone is still a little sad that there's no such thing as Saturday morning cartoons anymore, but never fear - Gotham Sound Atlanta is here to fill the yawning void! Starting this week, the Atlanta shop will be open Saturdays from 10am to 5pm for all your southern-inflected audio needs! To celebrate, we'll be giving away t-shirts this first weekend, so be sure to drop by on November 15th!

Gotham Sound Atlanta will be closed Saturday, November 29th and Saturday, December 27th for the holidays, but, beyond that, we'll be here for you six days a week (even if you're not in Atlanta!)

Martin Kelly, R.I.P.

We were saddened to hear that Marty Kelly passed away last night. He was always a pleasure to work with and a constant innovator; his contributions to on-set workflow will continue to benefit the industries for years to come.

A memorial will be held for Marty Kelly this Sunday, September 28th from 12-3pm at Brooklyn Bridge Park. All are welcome.

There will be a gathering after the memorial at Cowgirl Seahorse at 259 Front St.

Dan in Reality Life

LOS ANGELES, JULY 8, 2014 – When Daniel S. McCoy, CAS, scored the sound supervisor role for ABC’s new live results singing show, Rising Star, he knew he would need an innovative miking solution to support the performances. In addition to his tried-and-trusted d:dicate™ 4017 Shotgun Mic from DPA Microphones, McCoy also relies on his new DPA d:screet™ 4061 Omnidirectional Miniature Mics with Wisycom wideband transmitters and receivers.

With behind-the-scenes competitor interviews, commentary from host Josh Groban and mentoring from the likes of Ludacris, Kesha and Brad Paisley, Rising Star incorporates significant moments of dialogue in addition to the performances. In order to account for the show’s various ENG and reality needs, McCoy simultaneously uses the d:dicate 4017 and d:screet 4061s to give the post production team the ultimate choice in audio dynamics.

Using the d:screet 4061s with the Wisycom transmitters is a first for McCoy, a long-time enthusiast of DPA Microphones. New York-based Gotham Sound supplied the one dozen d:screets and beltpacks for Rising Star. McCoy chose the d:screet 4061 because it has a lower sensitivity and can handle 144dB SPL, which allows him to avoid distortion on the powerful singing voices. In addition, post requires vibrant-sounding mics that can be concealed, and DPA was the perfect solution.
