Beyerdynamic: Obsesión por la calidad


esTal vez no soy el más experto, tampoco el más hábil y conocedor en sonido, pero si puedo darme el lujo de decir y apreciar al escuchar un instrumento o una voz cuando esta se reproduce en forma clara y transparente.


Por eso me he vuelto un fan de los productos del fabricante alemán, que tienen un nivel de calidad que pocos pueden igualar.

A mi no se me paga por esto, pues no soy nadie en la industria como para recibir una bonificación o gratificación por mis palabras. Esto es un pequeño reporte “no oficial”. Solo soy una persona que admira y aprecia la buena calidad de un producto y me gusta resaltarlo.

Acá pueden apreciar una galería de selectos micrófonos y audífonos, que tomé durante mi trabajo y otras las obtuve de sus redes sociales.

Espero disfruten.

Smile of the death

RF Beyerdynamic

es Tuve la oportunidad de participar en el “RF Training de Beyerdynamic”, con una charla de 6 horas de duración dictada, con el fin de adquirir conocimiento más profundo del funcionamiento de los sistemas de micrófonos y monitores inalámbricos.  El taller fue dictado por el ingeniero alemán Bernd Neubauer (FOH para Genesis, Phil Collins, etc), gracias a la gestión realizada por Javier Ocampo, representante de la compañía para Latinoamérica y de Francisco Melendez, gerente de SoundLogics, distribuidor de productos Beyerdynamic para Colombia.


Allí tuvimos la oportunidad de ampliar nuestros conocimientos de las frecuencias de UHF/VHF/2.4, tratando de conocer los beneficios y robles de estar en medio de estas frecuencias de uso.

Se analizaron las diferentes frecuencias en uso:

30 – 45 Mhz – La cual es no recomendada.

174-250 Mhz – con muy buena propagación.

450-900 Mhz – Como la mejor para su propagación y uso recomendado.

1785 – 1805 Mhz – Con pobres formas de propagación

2400 – 2450 Mhz- Con muy pobre propagación de onda.

La opción ideal (450-900) tiene también sus inconvenientes, debido a que es la utilizada por la televisión digital, lo cual limita las frecuencias de uso.

Pudimos también tener la oportunidad de ver las diferencias entre un sistema inalambrico utilizado en UHF o VHF, tener en consideración el cableado de las antenas receptoras y transmisoras, mantener una visión clara sobre las mismas para no perder condiciones de propagación y reducir el “fading effect”.

Adicionalmente, se aprendió sobre la señal de radio frecuencia, la intermodulación cuando 2 señales pasan a través del micrófono a altos niveles. Se entrego en detalle por parte del ingeniero Neubauer un profundo detalle de los tipos de antena: “Non-diversity”, “diversity” y la “true-diversity”. Así mismo su diferenciación entre antenas omnidireccionales, direccionales y cada uno con sus dos tipos existentes (Activas y pasivas).

Se finalizó la charla con una explicación de como reducir la perdida de calidad de la señal, con enseñanza de tácticas y posicionamiento de las antenas a través de escenarios, auditorios y eventos al aire libre con el fin de reducir el “fading”. El uso de “boosters” y su correcta conexión, la ventaja de una buena polarización de las antenas y su ubicación con respecto a la transmisión de la señal generada.

Todas las charlas y practicas realizadas se hicieron con la innovación de Beyerdynamic: el TG1000, utilizando cápsulas de excelente calidad como el V70w, V50dw.

Qu-24 resists metal bites

enWorking for the music/entertainment industry in Latin America is a crazy adventure. You need to break the rules be a step ahead from your mates and competitors.

My passion for heavy metal took me to offer my services to a small gig in “Nuestro Bar” 2 weeks ago, supporting live sound, monitoring and recording in front of 100+ metalheads screaming their favorite tunes for local acts.

Qu-24 on

Qu-24 working

Improvisation is the predominant word in the underground scene. I never received a technical rider for the bands and only I used my instinct and knowledge from the house to set the mic and sounds requirement: 3 bands with 3, 4 and 5 members using the classic rock instrumental set up: guitar(s), bass and a 5 piece drum kit in a stage that only comprise 3 x 2 meters, where you don´t have chance to spread backline, monitor and stand mics as you like.

So, my option was 2 stands for vocals, a couple more for drums and K+M clamps around the instruments to void unwanted sounds and considering the space reduced, using eleven microphones/DI channels (we have no more microphones available due to chance) trying to catch the best sound on the stage.

On drums we used an assorted stuff: Tech TDM 72D on snare, SM100S on racks, kick and floor drums, and Takstar PCM5400 for overhead; while  TA-8225 was used for the 4 x 12 Laney cabin guitars adding two DI on guitars and bass. Sennheiser E835 and SM58 on vocals. Everything connected to my Allen & Heath´s Qu-24.


Soundcheck begun 1 hour later than expected, but only took 10 minutes with “Ultra-Violence” the headliner for the show. The fast solution was keep the scene in the Qu-24.

The open act: Mundo Depresivo performed a grind/death metal that come as storm with riffs and guttural voice standing the audience during the show. They sounds great!

After 40 minutes and releasing a fast changeover “Ultra-Violence start a dense and dark tunes remembering and paying tribute to Celtic Frost and finalizing with a own version of Motörhead´s Orgasmatron. Then, after running a couple of troubles for monitoring and backline system at midnight, arrives “Disaster” performing 50 intense minutes of thrash/death metal stealing shouting and whistles from the audience wishing more and more music.

Briefly, my thoughts and experience was amazing, the system works properly and the house so glad with the show. I know that we used low cost equipment, cheap technology, perhaps. But I put my energy to bring a show trying to satisfy ears and brains hungry of good metal.

The Qu-24 it worked fine, and step by step I put our Colombian bands into a next level.
