Designed for a broad range of long-distance broadcast, ENG and film miking applications, such as booming, dialogue, interview and table or podium use, the 4018 Supercardioid Microphone offers superb flexibility through modular accessories.
This microphone is part of the flexible d:dicate Microphones series. It has a highly-directional supercardioid pickup pattern with a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response.
The supercardioid shape is frequency independent, securing an identical sound color around the microphone. The usual rear lobe heard on most supercardioids is minimized on this capsule. This makes it much more isolated without sudden frequency dependent peaks and dips.
At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the 4018 Supercardioid Microphone Capsule into a new configuration.
Ideal for unobtrusive or distant miking applications such as desktop or hanging use, the 4018ER/ES Supercardioid Microphone is an ultra-compact supercardioid microphone. With a length of only 35 mm, the low-key appearance of the mic is as unique as its highly-directional supercardioid pickup pattern with a smooth and uniform off-axis frequency response.
The 4018ER/ES Supercardioid Microphone combines the MMC4018 Supercardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-ER/ES Modular Active Cable, XLR, an integrated cable solution with either side (4018ES) or rear (4018ER) cable entry.
It is designed for a broad range of music recording and broadcast / ENG / film long-distance miking applications. It is ideal for use as spot or hanging mic for orchestra recording situations when used with the SM4000-C Suspension Mount, which is included in the package. This allows the 4018E to be hung from the ceiling and create precision spot miking of orchestra sections or ambience atmosphere.
