LAS VEGAS, JUNE 15, 2012 – DPA Microphones
, the manufacturer of high-level reference and headset microphones, is featuring its handheld
d:factoâ„¢ vocal mic
at InfoComm 2012 (Booth C9850). Building on the success of the DPA reference standard cardioid 4011 microphone, the company has pooled its years of expertise and resources to bring the eagerly awaited, high-quality vocal condenser mic to the live performance market.
With the d:facto, DPA has identified what its users love about the reference standard cardioid 4011 and tailored those qualities to a handheld design specified for live performance purposes. The result is a supercardioid mic with superb definition, excellent separation, breathtakingly natural sound and extreme SPL handling. The d:facto boasts a rugged design for professional use, and has an optimized proximity effect specifically designed for vocal use.
Similar to all DPA mics, d:facto features superior gain before feedback, while the robust three-stage pop-protection grid built into the microphone effectively removes unwanted noise. Designed to last, d:facto boasts exceptional isolation from handling noise, as well as the ability to accommodate extreme sound levels. The microphone head can be used on the DPA wired handle and can also be unscrewed for mounting onto a Wisycom wireless microphone system, offering a high degree of flexibility.
“For many years, the live sound market has been requesting that the high sound quality of DPA’s legendary 4011 mic be made available for a myriad of live performance and recording needs,” says DPA’s CEO, Christian Poulsen. “As a result of the innovative partnership with Wisycom, we have developed the d:facto vocal mic to fulfill those requests. The option of wired and wireless modes, combined with DPA’s proven technology, has resulted in a live performance vocal mic that encapsulates flexibility and unsurpassed sound quality; key elements for equipment of the future.”
With the d:facto, DPA has made a handheld microphone that inspires the same feeling a musician gets from a handbuilt instrument. It makes the user of the mic feel more confident and perform better.
