Product ID 4011C
Designed to be hidden from view, the diminutive design and high performance of the d:dicate™ 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact makes it the outstanding choice for unobtrusively miking all types of television, film, theatre, concert and studio performances.

When used to spot-mike larger orchestras, these mics are hard to beat. Capable of handling high SPLs without distortion, the d:dicate™ 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is perfectly tailored for close-miking applications; minimizing bleed from other instruments. In film and TV studios, they are excellent for off-camera voice recording or Foley work. For live on-camera recordings, their matte black finish gives them a classic yet inconspicuous appearance, while for sound reinforcement in concert halls, theatres and houses of worship, they provide clean, natural sound while reducing the noticeable effect of lighting reflection.
 

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

The 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphone Series. The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule coupled with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier is excellent for compact and precise close-miking of the majority of instruments. When you match the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-A Preamplifier it results in the worldwide reference standard for extreme sound level handling.

The 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is also available as a matched stereo pair.
