The DPA d:facto™ Vocal microphone is designed to bring studio-quality sound to the stage without any of the problems studio microphones can usually suffer from in this demanding environment. Using experience gained from building the award-winning DPA 4011 cardioid capsule, DPA has tailored the d:facto’s capsule to give a far more directional pick-up pattern, excellent rejection of feedback and off axis neutrality and attenuation.
The d:facto Vocal is designed specifically to give engineers the power of excellent studio quality sound in almost any environment, and its amazing capsule speaks for itself. The d:facto 4018V capsule blows the competition out of the water with its excellent off-axis rejection, and spill that does enter the capsule sounds totally natural thanks to its directional capsule technology. The d:facto's handling noise has been reduced to virtually null thanks to its innovative capsule mounting system which includes shock absorption between the handle and the capsule. The d:facto Vocal mic features a high boost to accentuate the natural vocal range, though if you want a totally linear response check out the DPA d:facto Linear Vocal mic.
The d:facto Vocal capsule is suspended in a pop-proof housing to optimise handling noise. As well as it’s excellent full-bandwidth frequency response, the d:facto is capable of handling sound pressure levels up to 160dB before clipping. This is definitely not your average vocal microphone and must be heard to be believed.
