This is a complete stereo kit with two compact d:dicate™ 4011ES Cardioid Microphones, with active side cables. The mics are carefully factory-matched within ±1 dB on frequency response and sensitivity in the microphone’s entire frequency bandwidth.
Ideal for unobtrusive spot miking, such as hanging or table use, the d:dicate™ 4011ES Cardioid Microphone, Active Cable is an ultra-compact cardioid microphone from the modular d:dicate™ Microphones Series. The mic has a length of only 3.5 cm (1.4 in) and a low-key appearance.
The mic features an integrated cable solution. This allows it to be hung from the ceiling and create precise and repeatable positions and angles when spot miking orchestra sections or ambience atmospheres.
The microphone capsule
The principal appeal of the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule
is its directional quality and attention to detail. This mic makes everything sounds like the original. The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources.
It is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to attenuate the output of the microphone.
A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound. The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is an accurate reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the true first-order cardioid pickup pattern.
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™ 4011ER/ES Cardioid Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
The d:dicate™ 3511ES Stereo Kit replaces the legacy 3521 Stereo Kit.
