New DPA d:facto Handheld Microphone Range Debuts At NAB 2016

News Image
At NAB 2016 DPA Microphones will showcase its new linear version of the d:facto Handheld Microphone range.

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.

James Capparelle, Marketing Manager, USA for DPA Microphones, said: "We are excited to introduce the d:facto Linear Vocal Microphone to the North American market at this year's NAB show. 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.

Available separately or as two different kits with a d:screet microphone, the new GM1600 Gooseneck is compatible with DPA's entire extensive range of instrument-mounting clips, which are specifically designed to never blemish or scratch the instrument. By choosing the right clip for a particular instrument, musicians and sound engineers can decide on the correct placement to achieve the desired timbre.

When used with the d:screet 4061 Omnidirectional Lo-Sensitivity microphone, this versatile 15.3cm (6in) gooseneck provides stable and repeatable positioning for close miking instruments in studio and live environments. When used with the d:screet 4060 Omnidirectional Hi-Sensitivity microphone, which is designed for softer sound levels or for picking up ambient sound, it is ideal as a plant mic in a concealed application for film sound recordists who want clean, detailed and natural sound, even when the microphone is not pointing directly at the sound source.
