The principal appeal of the d:dicate 4011C Compact Cardioid Microphone is its directional quality and attention to detail. The cardioid pickup pattern provides great separation between sound sources and its flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a faithful reproduction of the original sound. The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is a reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the cardioid pickup pattern. It can also handle incredibly high sound pressure levels (SPLs).
Capable of handling high SPLs without distortion, the mic is perfectly tailored for close-miking applications such as spot-miking larger orchestras, 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 elements of the d:dicate 4011C Microphone are easily swappable those of with another d:dicate™ or d:facto microphone capsule or preamplifier.
