ORFT Mount for the ORTF challenged

I had a new design developed for the DPA 4011C for ORTF. I use the DPA Slim XLR cables, so this is very similar to the Schoeps ORTF bar.

Allround, high quality SDC

Which DPA did you try? They all sound quite different. I am a fan of the 4011c fwiw. The Gefell M295/296 is also a cracker. Or you could find a pair of Neumann KM56s still in good condition. There are still some out there.

The 4011 cardioid. My most recent encounter with them was for the piano riff on a small Steinway grand on this little tune: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uCv2vWXouA

Product Description

Designed to be hidden from view, the diminutive design and high performance of the d:dicate 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact makes it the outstanding choice for unobtrusively miking all types of television, film, theatre, concert and studio performances. When used to spot-mike larger orchestras, these mics are hard to beat. Capable of handling high SPLs without distortion, the d:dicate 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is perfectly tailored for close-miking applications; minimizing bleed from other instruments. In film and TV studios, they are excellent for off-camera voice recording or Foley work. For live on-camera recordings, their matte black finish gives them a classic yet inconspicuous appearance, while for sound reinforcement in concert halls, theatres and houses of worship, they provide clean, natural sound while reducing the noticeable effect of lighting reflection. THE MICROPHONE CAPSULE The principal appeal of the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule is its directional quality and attention to detail. This mic makes everything sounds like the original. The first-order cardioid pickup pattern provides superb separation between sound sources. It is equally suitable for close-up work on acoustic guitar, grand piano, overheads, percussion, wind instruments and vocals as it is for spot-miking symphonies. It can handle incredibly high sound levels and even includes a 20 dB pad switch in the center of the XLR connector to attenuate the output of the microphone. A flat on-axis frequency response and excellent phase response deliver a totally faithful reproduction of the original sound. The off-axis response is similarly smooth so that any leakage is an accurate reflection of the original, though attenuated according to the true first-order cardioid pickup pattern. A TRULY FLEXIBLE RANGE The 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is part of the flexible d:dicate Microphone Series. The MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule coupled with the MMP-C Compact Preamplifier is excellent for compact and precise close-miking of the majority of instruments. When you match the MMC4011 Cardioid Microphone Capsule with the MMP-A Preamplifier it results in the worldwide reference standard for extreme sound level handling. The 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact is also available as a matched stereo pair.Designed to be hidden from view, the diminutive design and high performance of the d:dicate 4011C Cardioid Microphone, Compact makes it the outstanding choice for unobtrusively miking all types of television, film, theatre, concert and studio performances.
