DPA Microphones will use the upcoming Prolight + Sound exhibiton to demonstrate its award-winning d:facto Vocal Microphone range.
Launched just three years ago, the d:facto Vocal Microphone is now a firm favourite with artists such as Steve Wonder, Sting, Ellie Goulding and Paloma Faith. The microphone has also proved popular with FOH engineers who appreciate its clarity, superior gain before feedback and extreme SPL handling.
At Prolight + Sound 2015, DPA will demonstrate the flexibility of the d:facto range by highlighting the modular nature of its design. The same microphone head can be employed for both wired and wireless use, which means performers are free to choose the configuration that best suits their needs. They can also choose their preferred wireless system because DPA's state of the art adapters allow d:facto to integrate seamlessly with brands such as Sony, Lectrosonics, Shure, Wisycom and Sennheiser.
DPA has also added to the range with the launch of the d:facto Interview Microphone, a broadcast-quality microphone for presenters and reporters who want voice clarity, linearity and low noise characteristics. This handheld microphone features the new d:facto 2006V omnidirectional capsule, a specially adapted version of DPA's popular 2006 capsule that has been adjusted to suit typical interview microphone levels.
"We have altered the capsule's sensitivity so that it is 12 dB less than its basis," says DPA product specialist Mikkel Nymand. "This, plus the fact that the capsule is omnidirectional, makes it more suited to broadcast interview situations where freedom of use is more important than pointing precision. We have also lowered handling noise by incorporating a rubber suspension mount, which is built into the d:facto head. Finally, the d:facto Interview has the lowest mic generated wind noise of any interview mics on the market, straight out of the box, with no additional foam or fur needed."
DPA's entire d:facto range will be on show at Prolight + Sound 2015, booth 8:B70, and visitors will have the oportunity to A/B its performance against other microphones.
