DPA MICROPHONES - Recording - d:dicate series

DPA d:dicate recording microphones have been designed for and are often used in high-end recording and film environments and are becoming more popular in live sound applications in studios, concert halls and sports broadcasting.

2011A, 2011C, 2011ER, 2011ES

The 2011 pre-polarised, cardioid, twin diaphragm, condenser microphone has been designed to handle high sound pressure levels and is therefore more suited to 'close-miking' situations. Two 'opposite-facing' capsules are built into a MMC2011 twin-diaphragm, single capsule to provide a higher signal to noise ratio, often linked to a larger diaphragm microphone. The microphones have a frequency range of 20Hz - 20kHz, (50Hz - 17kHz with a 3dB soft boost at 12kHz at 300mm) and a dynamic range of 117dB.

The 2011A, with a maximum SPL of 153dB, combines the capsule with the MMP-A preamplifier that regulates and provides voltage to the capsule, and has impedance balancing. It also has a push switch positioned at the XLR connector to give a 20dB attenuation. The total length of the 2011A is 198mm.
The 2011C, with a maximum SPL of 146dB, combines the same twin diaphragm capsule with the more compact MMP-C preamplifier to give a total length of 92mm. This preamplifier does not have an attenuation switch.

The 2011ER has the 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed, rear-entry cable with a 3-pin male XLR.
The 2011ES has the 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed, side-entry cable with a 3-pin male XLR.

The ST2011A kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 2011A microphones and includes a Peli case.
The ST2011C kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 2011C microphones and includes a Peli case.

4006A, 4006C, 4006ER, 4006ES

Like the 2011, the 4006 pre-polarised, condenser microphone has four variants that share the same omnidirectional MMC4006 capsule. With a frequency response of 10Hz - 20kHz, +/-2dB, and a high sensitivity of 40mV/Pa, these are often used for vocals, close positioning to acoustic instruments and in stereo pairs for symphonic concert hall sound capture. The ER and ES versions include the SM4000 suspension mount allowing the microphone to be hung from the ceiling for spot pick-up.

The 4006A, as with the 2011A, combines the 4006A capsule with the MMP-A preamplifier to supply and regulate the voltage to the capsule.
The 4006C, like the 2011C, combines the 4006A capsule with the MMP-C compact preamplifier.

The 4006ER combines the 4006A with the 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed, rear-entry cable with a 3-pin male XLR.
The 4006ES has the 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed, side-entry cable with a 3-pin male XLR.

The ST4006A kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4006A microphones and includes a Peli case.
The ST4006C kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4006C microphones and includes a Peli case.

4011A, 4011C, 4011ER, 4011ES

This range of pre-polarised condenser microphones uses the MMC4011 cardioid capsule, and can be used for close positioning to acoustic guitar, grand piano, percussion, wind instruments, vocals, orchestral overheads, or orchestral spot pick-up. A frequency response of 40Hz - 20kHz at 30cm and a dynamic range of 121dB, typically, ensure smooth reproduction, while maximum SPLs of 159 (4011A), 152 (4011C), 144 (4011ER/4011ES) lessen the chance of distortion. The ER and ES versions include the SM4000 suspension mount allowing the microphone to be hung from the ceiling for spot pick-up.

The 4011A uses the MMP-A preamplifier with 20dB attenuation switch.
The 4011C has the shorter MMP-C preamplifier.

The 4011ER has the miniature 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed cable terminating with 3-pin XLR.
The 4011ES has the 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with a fixed, side-entry cable with a 3-pin male XLR.

The ST4011A kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4011A microphones and includes a Peli case.
The ST4011C kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4011C microphones and includes a Peli case.

4015A, 4015C

The DPA 4015 pre-polarised condenser microphones have been designed for recording acoustic instruments such as grand piano, guitar, marimba or percussion, however they are equally useful for spot pick-up or speech. The internal MMC4015 capsule has a wide cardioid pickup pattern with linear response from 40Hz - 20kHz at 60cm, +/- 2dB. A dynamic range of 121dB, typically, and a maximum SPL of 159dB (4015A)/152dB (4015C) offer plenty scope for high quality audio capture.

The 4015A uses the MMP-A preamplifier with 20dB attenuation switch.
The 4015C has the shorter MMP-C preamplifier.

The ST4015A kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4015A microphones and includes a Peli case.
The ST4015C kit contains a stereo, matched pair of 4015C microphones and includes a Peli case..

4017B, 4017C, 4017ER, 4017ES

The pre-polarised condenser 4017 shotgun microphones have a 'highly-directional' pickup pattern due to the combination of the supercardioid design and an interference tube to provide off-axis rejection. Because of this, the 4017 microphones are often used for broadcast ENG or film on booms, or fixed in sports arenas.

The 4017B has two on-board filters, activated by twisting two rings on the microphone body, to add a high frequency boost of 4dB at 8kHz to compensate for the loss incurred with windjammers. Frequencies below 120Hz can be reduced with a switched, first-order (6dB reduction per octave), filter to remove unwanted handling and wind noise. A third order (24dB reduction per octave) filter, set at 50Hz, is permanently in effect to eliminate the lowest handling noise. The 4017B weighs 68g and is 210mm in length.
The 4017C does not have these filters, is 154mm in length and weighs 70g.

The 4017ER does not have the filters, is 125mm long and weighs 121g including the 3m cable and 3-pin XLR connector.
The 4017ES also does not have the filters, is 125mm long and weighs 121g including the 3m cable and 3-pin XLR connector.

The 4017B-R is as the 4017B,and includes a Rycote suspension and windshield kit.
The 4017C-R is as the 4017C,and includes a Rycote suspension and windshield kit.

4018A, 4018C, 4018ER, 4018ES

With a supercardioid pickup-pattern, the pre-polarised 4018 condenser microphones have been designed for broadcast, ENG, film and long distance pick-up situations. Use with a boom is common practice and the microphones also prove popular for interview, spot and table use. They have a frequency response of 40Hz - 18kHz at 300mm +/-2dB and a dynamic range of 121dB, typically. A signal to noise ratio of 78dB(A) typical is the same across all 4018 microphones.

The 4018A uses the MMP-A preamplifier with 20dB attenuation switch, and a maximum SPL of 156dB.
The 4018C has the shorter MMP-C preamplifier, and a maximum SPL is 150dB.

The 4018ER has the miniature 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with fixed cable terminating with 3-pin XLR. The maximum level is 142dB SPL.
The 4018ES model has the miniature 12mm MMP-E preamplifier with fixed cable terminating with 3-pin XLR. The maximum level is 142dB SPL.
