Whenever a small, lightweight and inconspicuous microphone for top-quality recording is required, the d:dicate 4006C Omnidirectional Microphone, Compact mic is the perfect choice.
This is a very versatile recording microphone. The mic is popular as an A-B stereo pair in concert halls where quality recordings can sometimes be compromised by classic architecture. The mic can be mounted, hung or concealed to create clean, transparent recordings.
It is ideal for use in theatres, opera houses, concert halls and houses of worship - anywhere there is a live audience. It can also be for film recordings, both in the studio and on location. Musicians like to use this mic to close-mike some instruments, such as the double bass, trumpet and piano. And, at the same time, they are fantastic for ambience miking on soundstages, in sports stadiums and other environments where audience sound needs to be recorded.
The microphone capsule
This microphone offers total transparency in any recording situation. It picks up incredible detail and depth of sound. The definition of its high-frequency characteristics across a wide range of instruments is impressive. It offers natural sound, high sensitivity, low noise-floor and extremely linear frequency response from 10 to 20 kHz (±2 dB).
The d:dicate 4006C Omnidirectional Microphone, Compact is a flexible solution. Engineers, broadcasters and musicians alike can achieve clean, natural and precise sound reproduction. This mic is ideal for A-B stereo pairs for symphonic concert hall recordings. It also excels on vocals, for close-miking all types of instruments and as an outdoor interview microphone.
A selection of accessories is available, including acoustic pressure equalizers, a nose cone and interchangeable protection grids. These accessories can acoustically transform the mic. By changing grids, it is possible to gain several unique frequency responses and directional characteristics from the mic. Furthermore, these accessories will not produce any phase shift, noise or distortion that would otherwise be introduced by an electrical filter.
A truly flexible range
The d:dicate 4006C Omnidirectional Microphone, Compact is part of the flexible d:dicate Microphones Series. It combines the MMC4006 Omnidirectional Capsule with the MMP-C compact preamplifier. This combination offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more "body" to the low end than the d:dicate 4006A Omnidirectional Microphone.
Another option, for the true audiophile, is the d:dicate 4006A Omnidirectional Microphone. It offers low distortion and totally accurate and faithful sound.
At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate 4006C Omnidirectional Microphone, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate or d:facto Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
