The new d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone
, which features the 4018VL capsule
, has an extremely linear frequency response compared to the original d:facto™ Handheld Microphone’s 4018V capsule
which has a soft boost at 12kHz. Both capsules have an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern specifically designed to augment the human vocal range and combines the best of cardioid and supercardioid characteristics, just like its predecessor.
With Maluma preparing for his next tour, Pinzón is already planning his miking options. “I would love to have a complete DPA-miked drum kit and set of vocal capsules with me for the upcoming tour,” he says. “We will be performing everywhere from small venues to huge stadiums and arenas, and I feel that DPA Microphones will give me the best support. DPA mics have a small footprint and don’t require much space in the racks. They are also great looking – due to their compact size – in addition to having incredible sound quality.”
At only 22 years old, Maluma (whose real name is Juan Luis Londoño Arias) is quickly becoming one of Latin America’s greatest URBAN MUSIC performers.
