The company will also show a new Gooseneck Mount for its d:screet™ Miniature Microphones - and will have US band SHEL on hand to demonstrate its product range.
At Prolight + Sound 2016 (Hall 4.1, Booth C11), DPA Microphones will be adding to its hugely popular d:facto™ Handheld Microphone range
by launching an extremely linear version of this award winning product, the d:facto™ Vocal Microphone
Already the vocal microphone of choice for artists such as Sting, Stevie Wonder, Kate Bush and Ellie Goulding, the new version has an extremely linear frequency response compared to the original d:facto™ Vocal Microphone, which has a 3 dB soft boost at 12 kHz. The new d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone is for sound engineers who want the ability to design the complete sound pattern to create their own unique sound.
Featuring a new capsule with an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern that is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range, the d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone combines the very best of cardioid and supercardioid directional characteristics, just as the original d:facto™ Vocal Mic. This ensures complete focus on the sound source with minimum bleed, thus delivering high separation, natural sound and SPL handling up to 160 dB.
“The d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone
is ideal for PA amplification and recording,” says DPA’s Vice President of Marketing, Anne Berggrein. “We are happy to add another great capsule to the d:facto™ range
that will give ambitious sound engineers even more possibilities to achieve the best sound. The d:facto™ is the wingman you rely on when performance really matters, which is why we see the d:facto™ mics in so many high-end environments.”
DPA’s d:facto™ range
is entirely modular and this latest iteration is no exception. The capsule can be removed and replaced with any other d:facto™ capsule to suit different recording or performance requirements. Also, using DPA’s flexible adapter system, the microphone can be transformed from a wired version with a handle to a handheld wireless microphone capable of seamless integration with all leading wireless solutions such as Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics and Line6
