DPA MMC4018 (MMC_4018, MMC/4018, mmc_4018, mmc-4018) Supercardioid Mic Capsule

The MMC4018 modular microphone capsule is part of the flexible DPA d:dicate Recording Microphones series. The MMC4018 has a highly directional supercardioid pickup pattern with a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response. The supercardioid shape is frequency independent, securing an identical sound color around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimized on the 4018 capsule making it much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips. Designed for a broad range of broadcast/ENG/film long-distance miking applications, such as booming, dialogue, interview and table or podium use, the MMC4018 offers superbly flexibility through modular accessories. The MMC4018 is also ideal for use as spot or hanging mic for orchestra recording situations. Combine the MMC4018 with any of the pre-amps in the d:dicate modular series to fit your need.
