Rob-Jaczko

Among the world’s premier music instiutions, Berklee College of Music is renowned for its support of jazz and modern American music, and counts 229 Grammy Awards among its students’ achievements.

The school’s 13 music studios serve as classrooms by day, but are turned over to students for their own recording, engineering and production projects after regular class hours. From 6pm to 6am weekdays, and 22 hours per day on the weekends, students are free to pursue their own work. Critical to these recordings is the microphone selection the school provides…

‘At Berklee, we believe in using only definitive tools,’ says Music Production and Engineering (MP&E) department Chairman, Rob Jaczko. ‘As such, we have long been fans of DPA Microphones.’

Looking to stay at the keen edge of available technology, the school recently added a variety of DPA Microphones from the company’s d:dicate Recording Microphone line, including the 4006 and 4007 omni and 4011 cardioid mics to its inventory.

’The quality, fidelity, and musicality of a microphone are key components of a recording,’Jaczo says. ’That’s why it was important for us to represent the DPA brand to students as we teach them the craft of music production and engineering. DPA features prominently in our choice of microphones. We use many of the company’s d:dicate microphones in our studios and recently put together a surround recording package with the 5100 multichannel microphone for location and orchestral work.’

With the construction of ten new studios, including scoring and film-dub stages, currently underway in Boston, Berklee also recently opened a campus with five studios in Valencia, Spain. This campus will offer master’s degree programmes and study abroad opportunities for undergraduates. Berklee plans to add further d:dicate microphones to its mic lockers on both continents.

‘Choosing DPA Microphones was an ideal solution for the school, the students, and for me personally,’ explains Jaczko. ‘Not only am I the Chair of the department, but I am principally a recording engineer. We wanted to make sure the students have the opportunity to hear the quality of the DPA mics, which set the benchmark for superior audio. When we make equipment choices, no matter what type, it’s based on selecting only industry-standard, signature tools that will provide a sense of familiarity for the students as they join the professional engineering world after graduation. DPA is part of that standard.’
