DPA Microphones is showcasing its new linear version of the hugely popular d:facto™ Handheld Microphone range at NAB 2016 (Booth C3336).
The new mic is dubbed the d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone
. DPA will also be highlighting the GM1600 Gooseneck – a new mount for its d:screet™ Omnidirectional Miniature Microphones
Already the vocal microphone of choice for artists such as Sting and Stevie Wonder, the new version has an extremely linear frequency response compared to the original d:facto™ Vocal Microphone, which features a boost at 12kHz. The new d:facto™ is for sound engineers who prefer a truly uncolored sound, giving them free range to EQ as much or as little as they see fit. 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 like the original d:facto™ Vocal Microphone. This ensures complete focus on the sound source with minimal bleed, delivering exceptionally natural sound, high separation and SPL handling up to 160 dB.
“We are excited to introduce the d:facto™ Linear Vocal Microphone to the North American market at this year’s NAB show,” says James Capparelle, Marketing Manager, USA for DPA Microphones. “The addition of the linear capsule to the d:facto™ line will provide even more opportunities for engineers to attain the quality sound they’re looking for. The d:facto™ has become the go-to choice for many industry professionals and we encourage all of those in attendance at NAB to come listen for themselves.”
DPA’s d:facto™ range
is entirely modular and this latest version 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 including Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics and Line6.
