Audix DP8 8 Piece Drum Microphone Package

The DP Elite 8, as the name implies, is the ultimate combination of 8 microphones needed to mike up a 5 piece drum kit. All mics perform equally well whether it be on a live stage or in the studio.

Included in the DP Elite 8 drum mic package is the D6, Audix's flagship kick drum mic, two- D2's for rack toms, one D4 for floor tom, the i5 for snare, a pair of SCX1C's for overhead miking, and the SCX1-HC for high-hat. Also included are four D-Vice rim mount clips for the snare and tom mics, and three heavy duty tension fit mic clips for the SCX1 microphones. Everything is conveniently packaged in a foam-lined aluminum carrying case road case for safe keeping when the mics are not in use.

D6 - Kick Drum

The D6 has a frequency response of 30Hz-15kHz and is characterized with a cardioid pick-up pattern. The D6 is designed to sound good in any position and it is not dependent on finding the "sweet spot" of the drum. The D6 capsule features the same legendary VLM technology that has made the D series percussion and instrument microphones very popular for today's live stages and recording studios.

i5 - Snare

The i5 has the ability to capture the rich, deep resonance of the snare along with the attack necessary to cut through the mix. The i5's cardioid polar pattern allows it to focus on the specific instrument that is being miked while rejecting other instruments or ambient noise on stage. With a smooth and uniform frequency response of 50 Hz-16 kHz and an ability to handle sound pressure levels in excess of 140 dB, the i5 can be also used for a wide variety of instrument applications including percussion, guitar cabs, and vocals.

D2(two) - Rack Toms

For bringing out the real, dynamic sound of toms or congas, the D2 cannot be beat. The D2 accurately reproduces the warmth and overtones of the instrument without sounded harsh or boomy. The D2, which is very natural and articulate, requires very little (if any) EQ, and because of the tight hypercardioid polar pattern, no gating is needed.

D4 - Floor Tom

The D4, which provides an additional octave of low end response beyond the D2, is the perfect companion for large toms and other instruments characterized with extended bass frequencies. In fact, the D4 responds down to below 40 Hz, a remarkable feat for a microphone of the this size and performance. versatility. The D4 is characterized witha flat linear response from 40 Hz - 18 kHz making it the most versatile of all the D-series microphones.

SCX1-C (two) - Overheads

The SCX1-C, a pencil condenser requiring 48-52 Volts phantom power, is a highly sensitive microphones that will provide imagining and audio detail beyond your expectations. Characterized with a cardioid pickup pattern and a smooth uniform response over a frequency range of 40Hz-20kHz, the SCX1-C has been a secret weapon for many sound engineers who have become envious for their drum sound.

SCX1HC - High Hat

The SCX1-HC is considered by a growing number of sound engineers and artists as the very best possible choice for high-hat, providing a level of detail and realism that is astonishing. Characterized with a hypercardioid pickup for isolation and feedback control, the SCX1HC features a machined brass body, low noise electronics, and black e-coat finish, and modular threaded capsule.

Polar Patterns
The polar pattern of a microphone determines how sensitive it is to receiving sounds as they arrive at different angles.
Not specified by manufacturer
Transducer Type
The transducer type is the manner in which the audio signal is converted into an electrical signal.
Not specified by manufacturer
Address
The configuration of the capsule determining on which side the microphone is sung or spoken into.
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
Not specified by manufacturer
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
Not specified by manufacturer
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
Not specified by manufacturer
Maximum Sound Pressure Level
This is the maximum sound pressure level that the microphone is capable of accepting and transferring into an electrical signal.
Not specified by manufacturer
Pad(s)
A pad is a term used for built in attenuation in a microphone or pro audio channel strip.
Roll Off Filter
A low frequency filter found on microphones commonly expressed with a threshold in Hz and a slope in -dB/Octave.
Power Requirement
Condenser microphones require an external power source to operate. Typically a +48v DC charge commonly refereed to as Phantom Power.
Length
The overall length of the microphone.
Diameter (inches)
A straight line running from one side of a circle or other rounded geometric figure through the center to the other side, or the length of this line
