DPA Microphones is showcasing the d:facto Linear Vocal Microphone (price TBA), its new linear version of the d:facto Handheld Microphone range at NAB 2016 in Booth C3336.
The new version reportedly has an extremely linear frequency response compared to the original d:facto Vocal Microphone, which features a boost at 12 kHz. The new d:facto is designed 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.
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 Line 6.
