DPA Microphones previewed a new addition to its microphone lineup, the 4097 CORE Supercardioid Choir Microphone at InfoComm 2019. Ideal for house of worship and choir applications, the 4097 provides the same sonic qualities as the brand’s d:vote CORE 4099 Instrument Microphone but was designed specifically to capture dynamic choir sound, with both wireless or wired configurations.
The new 4097 Choir Mic also features DPA’s famous flat off-axis supercardioid pattern and, like all DPA microphones, has been designed to be one of the most natural-sounding solutions available. As a result, the microphone has a very high-gain-before-feedback and due to the off-axis characteristic that DPA is renowned for, it makes the entire choir sound natural — not just on axis — but from all angles. This makes using multiple mics on the choir easy for the sound engineer as he can easily mix the various parts of the choir and blend it all together without having to fight the artifacts created from uneven mic pattern pick-up.
Configured with a MicroDot connector and a DPA adapter for wired or wireless, the 4097 allows the user to go wireless, which allows for great flexibility on stage when there are multiple uses of the same space.
Here are all the details.
