Product ID MMC4018V
This modular microphone capsule is part of the flexible d:facto™ Vocal Microphone series. Equally at home in sound reinforcement and recording applications, the d:facto™ Vocal Microphone is a high quality stage vocal microphone with extraordinary natural sound, high separation from distant sound sources and extreme sound level handling.

The d:facto™ MMC4018V Supercardioid Capsule features an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern. It is specifically designed to augment the human vocal range. The mic uses directional characteristics from the best of two worlds – both cardioid and supercardioid patterns. The capsule’s directional pattern and definition gives high separation and true sound color onstage. It is ideal for PA amplification and recording. Frequency response and phase, both on- and off-axis, is linear. 

We recommend using the d:facto™ MMC4018V Supercardioid Microphone Capsule for stage applications. It offers an applicable opening angle around the center axis comparable to a cardioid. This means that a pleasant tolerance around the center axis is obtained for the singer. Concurrently, the rear rejection is higher than other supercardioids. The rear lobe opening normally seen on supercardioids at 180° angle is extremely uniform and controlled on the d:facto™ MMC4018V Supercardioid Microphone Capsule.

For more distant placements or applications acquiring a more open characteristic, such as interviewing or certain studio performances, our d:dicate™ MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule or d:dicate™ MMC4015 Wide Cardioid Microphone Capsule can be chosen.

You can combine the d:facto™ MMC4018V Supercardioid Microphone Capsule with any of the d:facto™ adapters for wireless systems or the d:facto™ handle for wired use.
