The Acoustic Pressure Equalizer Ball for d:dicate™ 4006A Omnidirectional Microphone is a sphere shaped Acoustic Pressure Equalizer. It comes in three sizes and can be used for the microphone or the stereo kit.
Depending on the size of the Acoustic Pressure Equalizer Ball your microphone will impact your recording differently. The Acoustic Pressure Equalizer Ball comes in three sizes; 30mm, 40mm and 50mm.
APE50RS - The Acoustic Pressure Equalizer, 50 mm Ball
The APE50RS, a Ø50 mm sphere, offers a stronger on-axis boost and off-axis attenuation than the smaller APEs (Ø40 mm and Ø30 mm). Its larger dimensions accentuate the on-axis boost at lower frequencies and allow off-axis sources to be strongly attenuated above 1 kHz. This will give your recordings a more intense sensation of source clarity and presence and a marked increase in brightness. It will also extend the effective reach of your microphones.
You will also find that the APE50RS is particular useful for making recordings under reverberant conditions.
These accessories substitutes the former L30B, L40B and L50B, suitable for d:dicate™ 4003 and d:dicate™ 4006A and their stereo kits. The L30B, L40B and L50B cannot be used with the modular d:dicate Series but the APE30RS, APE40RS and APE50RS is backwards compatible.
