DPA 4015C (4015 C 4015-C 4015/C) Wide Cardioid Microphone, Compact
If you are already a DPA 4011 devotee, you will discover an exciting alternative in our wide cardioid microphones. The DPA 4015C wide cardioid differs in its polar pattern and is the perfect fill-in between an omni and a more directional microphone. Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern just isnâ€™t quite open enough, such as when recording instruments with complex radiation patterns. In those instances, the generous polar pattern of our Compact Wide Cardioids allows you to pick up a broader sound field and more accurately capture the full breadth of a stirring performance.
Recording orchestras or other ensembles sometimes requires a compromise between blending in the room reverberation and a more precise localization. The wide cardioid (also known as hemispheric) design covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice for 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.
The off-axis characteristics of the 4015C 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.
Visually discreet, the 4015C Wide Cardioids represent an indispensably low-profile solution for audio engineers and set designers alike. Tremendously precise and natural sounding, the Compact Wide Cardioids will certainly exceed expectations when used on choirs, percussion setups, grand pianos, wind instruments, and much more.
The ST4015C stereo pair is supplied in a specially designed PeliTM Case, the stereo matching is free of charge.
