DPA's d:facto vocal microphone

DPA Microphones‘ latest innovations for the live sound field will be on show at the company’s booth (3.1 F61) at Prolight + Sound 2017.

These include the d:dicate MMP-G modular active cable for MicroDot, a preamp that gives users the ability to create a completely wireless microphone setup offering studio quality audio during live performances, and the GSM4000 gooseneck shock mount that fits both the MMP-G and the existing MMP-E modular active cable with XLR to the extensive range of close miking mounts, known from the d:vote instrument microphone range.

The MMP-G modular active cable is a preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing to reject frequency interference. It permits the modular d:dicate capsules to connect to wireless systems with its fixed MicroDot connector that works with the wide range of DPA adapters suited for all professional wireless systems.

The many d:dicate capsules, ranging from the omnidirectional 4006 to the 4017 shotgun, can easily be mounted on the MMP-G. The MMP-G is available in two variations, MMP-GR with the cable extending from the rear or MMP-GS, with the cable extending from the side.

The GSM4000 gooseneck shock mount accessory has a clip at the end where the d:dicate capsule can be mounted with a preamp connected to it. Depending on the situation, users can deploy the new MMP-G for wireless or the MMP-E for wired solutions. The GSM4000 has an integrated shock mount solution ensuring that sound is not affected by extraneous factors such as handling noise or transferred vibrations from the instrument. It has the same diameter as DPA’s d:vote 4099 instrument microphone gooseneck.

At Prolight + Sound 2017, DPA will also be showing its d:facto vocal microphone range, which includes a linear version for sound engineers who want to design the complete sound pattern and create their own unique sound.

Already the vocal microphone of choice for artists such as Sting, Stevie Wonder, Kate Bush and Ellie Goulding, the d:facto vocal microphone combines cardioid and supercardioid directional characteristics to ensure minimum bleed, high SPL before feedback and a natural sound.

As the range is entirely modular, capsules 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 integration with all leading wireless solutions, such as Sennheiser, Shure, Sony, Wisycom, Lectrosonics and Line6.

DPA will also be showing established microphone models such as the d:vote instrument microphone and the full range of bodyworn microphones that are perfect for artists who want freedom of movement on stage. These include DPA’s d:screet miniature microphones and the d:fine 66 and 88 headset microphones that combine the flexible mechanics of the d:fine ear mount with the capsules from the d:fine 4066 omni and 4088 cardioid headsets.
