A complete Stereo Pair with two carefully factory-matched d:dicate ST4015C Wide Cardioid Microphones. These mics are matched within ±1 dB on both frequency response and sensitivity
Visually discret, the d:dicate 4015C Wide Cardioid Microphone, Compact represents an indispensably low-profile solution for audio engineers and set designers alike. Tremendously precise and natural sounding, these mics will certainly exceed expectations when used on choirs, percussion setups, grand pianos, wind instruments and much more.
The foam design in the heavy-duty transportation box allows for fast and easy exchange of the microphone/accessory inlays.
The microphone capsule
The off-axis characteristics of the MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule are totally linear, a unique quality when it comes to authentic sound reproduction. Any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, just softly attenuated.
Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern just isn't quite open enough. Recording orchestras or other ensembles sometimes requires a compromise between blending in the room reverberation and a more precise localization. When recording instruments with complex radiation patterns, the wide cardioid (also known as hemispheric) design covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice. This is the often ideal mic for recording grand piano, guitar, marimba, and percussion, or as a spot mic for groups in a symphony orchestra. Likewise, it is an excellent speech, dubbing, or vocal mic as its enhanced richness on the bass end nicely compliments many voices.
A truly flexible range
This mic is part of the flexible d:dicate Microphone Series. At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate 4015C Wide Cardioid Microphone, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate or d:facto Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
The d:dicate 4015C Wide Cardioid Microphone, Compact is also available as a single microphone.
