“Music is the common thread that connects people in the city of Nashville,” says Christopher Spahr, VP of Marketing and Sales, DPA Microphones, Inc. “All genres of music are celebrated and represented, which makes Summer NAMM a great show for us to display the versatile d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone. The d:vote 4099 is already the recognized standard for live sound instrument microphones and the CORE version adds another layer of sound quality that further distances this mic from its competitors. Any musician or live sound engineer that is looking to capture the clarity, nuance and natural sound of an instrument should strongly consider CORE by DPA. We are excited to see our mics in use during the Scarlett Sessions, as it is a testiment to how great they sound.”
The d:vote CORE 4099 line is designed for use with every woodwind and acoustical instrument, the most popular being guitar, violin, cello and trumpet/saxophone. Known for its discreet size and versatile mounting/clip options, the d:vote CORE 4099 mic is a great fit for live performances as well as in the studio and theater, and is one of the most natural-sounding instrument microphone solutions available today.
DPA developed the CORE by DPA amplification technology to create an even clearer sound from the ‘highest of the highs’ to the ‘lowest of the lows,’ and in doing so has minimized distortion and expanded the dynamic range. With the new d:vote CORE 4099, DPA is introducing a streamlined design that features a more distinguished foam cover and helps decrease vulnerability to wind or movement during a performance.
DPA will also be showcasing its d:facto 4018 Vocal Microphone series that brings studio sound to the live stage. The d:facto mics are available in an extremely linear version as well as in a version with a high-end boost. The modular nature of the d:facto series allows users to switch the capsule as well as the adapter, making it the most flexible vocal microphone on the market.
Featuring a capsule with an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern that is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range, the d:facto™ 4018VL Linear Vocal Microphone combines the best cardioid and supercardioid characteristics. This ensures complete focus on the sound source with minimum bleed, resulting in high separation, natural sound and SPL handling up to 160dB. The d:facto 4018VL mic gives sound engineers the perfect opportunity to capture isolated and precise sound during all types of vocal performances and is ideal for PA amplification.
