Modular flexibility The MMC4015 capsule is part of the flexible DPA Reference Standard series. The 4015A with the MMP-Apreamplifier suits acoustic instruments and voices with rich and open sound, where the 4015C with the MMP-C compact preamplifier is an excellent spot mic as a fill-in between an omni and a cardioid - and easier to position.
Expand your horizon with a wider pattern If you are already a DPA 4011 devotee, you will discover an exciting alternative in our wide cardioid microphones. The MMC4015 wide cardioidcapsule differs in its polar pattern and is the perfect fill-in between an omni and a more directionalmicrophone.
Sometimes a conventional cardioid pattern just isn't quite open enough, such as when recording instruments with complex radiation patterns. In those instances, the generous polar pattern of our wide cardioids allows you to pick up a broader sound field and more accurately capture the full breadth of a stirring performance.
