4015A WIDE CARDIOID MICROPHONE

Our wide cardioid microphones are capable of handling extremely high sound pressure levels before clipping occurs. The d:dicate™ 4015A Wide Cardioid Microphone even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to prevent overloading of the mic amplifier.
If you are already a d:dicate™ 4011 Series devotee, you will discover an exciting alternative in our wide cardioid microphones. It differs in its polar pattern and is the perfect fill-in between an omnidirectional and a more directional microphone.
 
The microphone capsule

The off-axis characteristics of the MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule are totally linear, a unique quality when it comes to authentic sound reproduction. Any leakage that occurs from off-axis sound sources is still a faithful reproduction of these sounds, just softly attenuated.

Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern just isn’t quite open enough. Recording orchestras or other ensembles sometimes requires a compromise between blending in the room reverberation and a more precise localization. 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 often 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.
 
A truly flexible range

This mic is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphone Series. At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 4015A Wide Cardioid Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.

The MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule coupled with the MMP-A Preamplifier suits acoustic instruments and voices with rich and open sound. For another option, match the MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier for 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.

The d:dicate™ 4015A Wide Cardioid Microphone is also available as a stereo pair (ST4015A).
