DPA Microphones’ d:dicate Microphone Series Goes Wireless
Already a sought-after microphone brand in the music and recording industry, DPA Microphones furthers its reach with the introduction of the GSM4000 gooseneck shock mount accessory and MMP-G modular active cable for MicroDot. These new accessories for the d:dicate microphone series gives users the ability to create a completely wireless microphone setup, while maintaining high-quality audio during performances.
The MMP-G modular active cable is an ultra-transparent preamplifier with active drive for impedance balancing to reject frequency interference. It permits the modular d:dicate capsules to connect to wireless systems with its fixed MicroDot connector that works with the wide range of DPA adapters suited for all professional wireless systems. The many d:dicate capsules, ranging from the legendary omnidirectional 4006 to the 4017 shotgun, can easily be mounted on the MMP-G and present an elegant and discreet solution. The MMP-G is available in two variations, MMP-GR with the cable extending from the rear or MMP-GS with the cable extending from the side.
The GSM4000 gooseneck shock mount accessory has an elegant clip at the end where the d:dicate capsule can easily be mounted with a preamp connected to it. Depending on the situation, the user is able to use the new MMP-G modular active cable for wireless or the MMP-E modular active cable for wired solutions. The GSM4000 has an integrated shock mount solution ensuring the perfect sound is not affected by, for example, handling noise. The GSM4000 is available in black, has a length of 11.5cm (4.5in) and allows the microphone to be set up in a variety of different positions.
The GSM4000 has the same diameter as the already renowned d:vote 4099 instrument microphones gooseneck. This means that the d:dicate solution can be used with the instrument mounts and clips that have gained success with musicians, who mount the mic on their instrument so that they can enjoy the freedom of movement while playing.
“Traditionally, musicians and sound engineers bought the legendary d:dicate microphones like the d:dicate 4006A omnidirectional microphone or the d:dicate 4011A cardioid microphone because they wanted the highest-end recording microphones available on the market,” says Anne Berggrein, VP of marketing at DPA Microphones. “Now these new accessories give them wireless freedom. The mics can easily be used on several instruments – and taken on the road with no issues. No other microphone brands have wireless microphones with sound quality and specifications as high as the d:dicate series, so this is a completely unique solution on the market. With our wide range of mic capsules, goosenecks and instrument mounts and clips, all musicians – from classical piano players to rock drummers, can choose precisely the solution that best meets their needs.
“We are thrilled to be able to present multiple miking options to sound engineers,” adds Berggrein. “It is our goal to provide our customers with unparalleled products and offer solutions for a range of needs. Our d:dicate microphone series now offers the user numerous opportunities to bring their unique sounds to the forefront.”
The flexible d:dicate microphone series incorporates modular capsules acclaimed for their exceptional linear frequency responses, high SPL and superior gain before feedback. These high-quality mics provide accurate, colourless sound and are perfect for close-miking situations. With several modular preamplifier solutions to connect to, there is a microphone configuration for all needs.
The new GSM4000 gooseneck shock mount and MMP-G preamplifier will be available in Summer 2016.
