DPA MMC4018V (MMC 4018 V MMC-4018-V MMC/4018/V) Microphone Capsule for Vocal, Super Cardoid


• Tweaked for close miking vocals
• Highly directional for high isolation
• Most controlled supercardioid shape
• Superb definition and natural response

The MMC4018V modular microphone capsule is part of the flexible DPA d:facto vocal microphone series. Equally at home in sound reinforcement and recording applications, the DPA d:facto is a high quality stage vocal microphone with extraordinary natural sound, high separation from nearby sound sources and extreme sound level handling.

Its supercardioid pattern and superb definition gives high separation and true sound color on stage, equally suitable for PA amplification and recording.

The MMC4018V provides improved audio performance, as it is superbly linear in frequency and phase, both on- and off-axis, while its impressive definition and accuracy reproduces a singer’s voice effortlessly.
Our recommendation for stage applications with the d:facto II is using the MMC4018V capsule. This capsule offers an applicable opening angle around the center axis comparable to a cardioid. This means that a pleasant tolerance around the center axis is obtained for the singer. Concurrently, the rear rejection is as higher than other supercardioids. The rear lobe opening normally seen on supercardioids at 180° angle is extremely uniform and controlled on the MMC4018V.

For more distant placements or applications acquiring a more open characteristic, such as interviewing or certain studio performances, our standard d:dicated MMC4011 cardioid or MMC4015 wide cardioid capsules can be chosen.

Combine the MMC4018V with any of the d:facto adapters for wireless systems or the DPA handle for wired use. Also, the MMC4018V fits the d:dicate Recording Microphone pre-amps.
