The d:facto 4018VL brings true studio sound to the live stage and broadcasting studio. These mics are available in an extremely linear version as well as in a version with a high-end boost. The modular nature of the d:facto series allows you to switch the capsule as well as the adapter, making it the most flexible vocal microphone available on the market.

Engineered especially for vocal performances onstage, the d:facto holds a supercardioid capsule that is designed to reproduce every nuance of the human voice transparently, consistently and thrillingly. There are two versions available. The d:facto Linear Vocal Microphone (4018VL) is extremely linear. The d:facto Vocal Microphone (4018V) is linear but with a high-end boost. The 4018V is often chosen because it 'cuts through' on a broadcasting set, where the content typically ends up transmitted to built-in television speakers with limited audio quality.

Besides the linearity / boost, these mics are identical. Both feature an isolation-optimized supercardioid polar pattern. This directional characteristic offers the best of two worlds - from cardioid and supercardioid patterns. These mics can handle loud vocals with three-step pop-protection grid and best-in-class low handling noise. They also offer excellent sonic reproduction with all the detail and balanced linear phase and frequency response users have grown to trust for DPA Microphones.
