DPA 4015C Compact Wide Cardioid Mic

$2,499.00

The DPA 4015C is an excellent spot mic as a fill-in between an omni and a cardioid. The compact version is easier to position than other cardioid microphones. Visually discreet, the 4015C Compact Wide Cardioid Mic represents an indispensably low-profile solution for audio engineers and set designers alike.

Available to order

The off-axis characteristics of the 4015C wide cardioid mic are totally linear, a unique quality when it comes to authentic sound reproduction. Any spill or leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources are still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, just softly attenuated.

Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern just isn’t quite open enough. Recording orchestras, and other ensembles, sometimes require a compromise between blending in the room reverberation and a more precise localisation. When recording instruments with complex radiation patterns, the wide cardioid (also known as hemispheric) design covers a greater sound angle and is an excellent choice. This is the ideal mic for recording grand piano, guitar, marimba and percussion, or as a spot mic for groups in a symphony orchestra. Likewise, it is an excellent speech, dubbing, or vocal mic as its enhanced richness on the bass end, nicely compliments many voices.

As with all of the modular pencil microphones from DPA Microphones, you can combine the 4015 (MMC4015) Wide Cardioid Mic Capsule with any of DPA’s other preamps (MMP’s).
