Yeah, I saw the remote cabling earlier. The 4018 (non-V) version is a pleasant surprise though. No graphs/specs on either edition posted yet.

This is huge for DPA. The lack of a hyper option was close to the only reason I sold mine.

I sent them an email about it a year or so ago and they said it was on the drawing board, but behind other projects which they wouldn't talk about. The remote cables and this can be construed as those projects.

But that's a good reminder, I should poke them and see if they will consider it again.

Looks to me like a hybrid short gun, like the 4017, only made for the vocal mic preamp body, like podium and boom mounts.

That IS a 4017.  The press release is somewhat confusing since the first photo near the top shows the 4017 and the photo of the 4018 is farther down.

This is the 4018-
[edit- removed the image link plucked from the press release since the image was massive.  It looks just like a MMC4011 with with MMC4018 printed on it.]

As I read it, there is a 4018 and 4018V. Like the schoeps mk4 and mk40.

Without graphs, I can't confirm either way.

Slightly different press release with photo of the d:dicate modular line- http://www.dpamicrophones.com/en/news/archive/press%20releases/dpa-microphones-introduces-the-new-d-dicate-recording-microphone-range.aspx.  There is a 4018 page on the DPA site but no data or images there yet.



The 'V' variant is the d:facto vocal mic version.  Presumably the identical capsule with a different windscreen housing and connnector. The vocal cap housing & windbasket might change response slightly compared to the d:dicate version.  A Google search for DPA 4018 turned up DPA FA4018VSL1B d:facto™ II Vocal Microphone at vendors..

B&H-


The Pro-Sound site hosts the capsule image, specs and graphs below-



Note:  All specifications measured with the DPA d:facto II Adapter
Directional pattern:  Supercardioid
Frequency range, ± 2 dB, at 12 cm (4.7 in):  100 Hz - 16 kHz with 3 dB soft boost at 12 kHz. Permanent 3rd order low-cut filter (-3 dB at 80 Hz).
Sensitivity, nominal, ± 2 dB at 1 kHz:  5 mV/Pa; -46 dB re. 1 V/Pa
Equivalent noise level, A-weighted:  Typ. 19 dB(A) re. 20 μPa (max. 21 dB(A))
S/N ratio (A-weighted), re. 1 kHz at 1 Pa (94 dB SPL):  Typ. 75 dB(A)
Dynamic range:  Typ. 120 dB
Max. SPL, peak before clipping:  160 dB
Power supply (for full specifications):  48 V Phantom power (± 4 V)

OOoo. That is an attractive hyper pattern though...

I knew of the vocal variant and housing, but didn't know they had posted diagrams of it yet.

So the MMP-E active cable is designed for use with the MMP-C pre and the all the MMC caps? Even the 2011's? I've been on the fence about the ST2011C set since January. These active cables and hyper caps make it more attractive. Although the 4018's will probably be around $1300 per cap. Maybe a 2018 twin D hyper? :P
