DPA MMC4015 (MMC 4015 MMC-4015 MMC/4015) Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule
The MMC4015 capsule is part of the flexible DPA d:dicate Recording Microphones series. The 4015A with the MMP-A preamplifier suits acoustic instruments and voices with rich and open sound, where the 4015C with the MMP-C compact preamplifier is an excellent spot mic as a fill-in between an omni and a cardioid â€“ and easier to position.
If you are already a DPA 4011 devotee, you will discover an exciting alternative in our wide cardioid microphones. The MMC4015 wide cardioid capsule 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 wide cardioids allows you to pick up a broader sound field and more accurately capture the full breadth of a stirring performance.
