Even though the standard tolerances on our d:dicate™ microphones are extremely low, a stereo match is even closer. These specially selected d:dicate™ 4011C microphones are matched within ±1 dB on both frequency response and sensitivity.
The pair comes in a heavy-duty Peli™ Case for safe transportation and easy access to the microphones and accessories.
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
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™ 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.
The 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is also available individually.
