DPA d:dicate™ 4018F Podium Mic

With its highly directional supercardioid polar pattern, the d:dicate™ 4018F has excellent off axis rejection with a smooth, uniform frequency response both on- and off axis.

Modular like the rest of the d:dicate™ range, the 4018F combines the MMP-F podium boom with the 4018 small diaphragm condenser capsule. The MMP-F boom is available in various lengths, so you can install the perfect podium mic solution for any situation.

Where to buy

Product Description

Due to its modular nature, the d:dicate™ 4018F Supercardioid Microphone is available with different lengths of podium booms – 15, 30 or 45 cm (6, 12 or 18 in). If longer booms are needed for floor standing applications, long booms at 75 or 120 cm (30 or 48 in) are also available.

The d:dicate™ 4018F’s Capsule:

The 4018 capsule’s supercardioid polar pattern is frequency independent, securing an identical sound colour anywhere around the microphone. The prominent rear lobe common for most supercardioids is minimised on the 4018 capsule, making the 4018F’s pickup much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips.

MMP-F Boom Lengths:

The d:dicate™ 4018F is available in five different lengths, in two styles:

  • 20cm (8 in), 32cm (13in) and 47cm (18 in) booms for podium use
  • 77cm (30 in) and 122cm (48 in) for floor stand applications

Main features of the d:dicate 4018F

  • Incredibly low self noise
  • Highly directional for better voice isolation
  • Smooth, uniform frequency response
  • Modular flexibility
