Product Description

Details

The d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone is acclaimed for its close-miking excellence and hi-SPL handling. Optimized for onstage use, it has been used on many stages as well as recording sessions. It exhibits a previously unheard blend of clarity, richness and dynamic range.

The off-axis response is linear but in a smaller frequency bandwidth. This makes stage separation and gain-to-feedback higher. The mic level is easier to control.

The microphone capsule

Inside this capsule, two opposite-facing miniature capsules are custom rebuilt. They are placed into a double-diaphragm, one-capsule composition. This combines the advantages of small capsules with the lower inherent noise achieved from a larger diaphragm area. These capsules provide fast impulse response and large frequency bandwidth.

The capsules are loaded to the supreme d:dicate™ Microphone series preamplifiers instead of the tiny miniature FET ones. This gives the sound more air and precision.

Comparisons with its big brother, the iconic MMC4011 capsule, are inevitable. The relationship between the two can be clearly heard. The MMC2000 series performs as well as more exclusive microphones. It is a premium-class mic capsule and redefines the term value for money.

Please read this note about the acoustic center of the d:dicate™ MMC2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone Capsule.

A truly flexible range

The d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone is part of the flexible d:dicate™ Microphones Series. It combines the MMC2011 Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Capsule with the MMP-A preamplifier. This combination is for the true audiophile. It offers low distortion and totally accurate and faithful sound.

Another option, the d:dicate™ 2011C Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone, Compact offers a subtle character alteration with a bit more “body” to the low end than the d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone.

At any time, and with no tools needed, it is possible to transform the d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone into a new configuration. You can combine it with another d:dicate™ or d:facto™ Microphone Capsule or Preamplifier.

The d:dicate™ 2011A Twin Diaphragm Cardioid Microphone is available as a sensitivity-selected stereo pair, ST2011A.
