ANAHEIM, CALIF. — NBC TV series “Grimm” will use an Audio-Technica microphone for dialog replacement recording.

The show is shot on location in Portland, Ore., and local Sonic Media Studios is in charge of recording ADR.

Engineer John Neff, whose music and film mixing operations are located at Sonic Media Studios, recommended a BP4073 Line + Gradient Condenser Microphone to Sonic Media Studios owner Paul Nelson and audio engineer Wayne Woods for this job.

Neff previously has used Audio-Technica microphones in location recording for David Lynch’s mystery film “Inland Empire,” and the BP4073 for other features and documentaries.

“We listened to three really great mics for our shotgun selection. The A-T was hands-down the winner in our test. It really did have more ‘presence’ than the others,” Neff said.

“I continue to choose A-T because, over the years, their products have proven time and time again to be completely reliable and have the ability to capture audio with the highest quality,” said Neff. “When you are in the field and have a set with actors and full crew, you can’t risk anything. Audio-Technica mics deliver every time.”
