Description

The D 112 has earned a well-deserved reputation worldwide as the best kick drum microphone ever made. Heavy-footed drummers won’t faze it, because the D 112 handles up to 160 dB SPL with no audible distortion.

A specially engineered diaphragm with a very low resonance frequency maintains solid and powerful response below 100 Hz, while a narrow band presence rise at 4 kHz punches through dense mixes with little or no added EQ.

The result is a kick drum sound that ideally balances precise definition and forceful impact. The D 112 is also an excellent choice for use with bass cabinets, trombones, etc.

Built in windscreen, SA 60 stand adapter included.


ARCHITECTS AND ENGINEERS SPECIFICATIONS:

The microphone shall be of the dynamic type operating on the moving coil principle and the polar pattern of the microphone shall be cardioid. The capsule shall be VLM Type B. The nominal output impedance shall be equal to 150 ohms at 1 kHz. The microphone shall have a sensitivity of 1.5 mV / Pa at 1 kHz and a sound pressure level 140 dB. The microphone body and grill shall be of die cast zinc alloy. The overall dimensions shall be 23 mm in diameter at the base, 37.5 mm at the top, and 141.5 mm in length. The microphone shall be the Audix i5.


OPERATION:

The i5 is a low impedance microphone and should be plugged into a “mic level” input on your console, mixer, or recording device. Please note that your microphone does not require phantom power and will not be effected in any way by phantom power should it be running simultaneously when the microphone is in operation. Avoid plugging or unplugging the microphone from the PA system unless the channel is muted or the volume of the system turned down. Failure to do so may result in a loud “popping” noise which could seriously damage the speakers in the PA system.


USER TIPS:

The i5 has a tight (cardioid) pick-up pattern in order to help eliminate sound from other instruments on stage from “bleeding” into the microphone. For this reason, it the i5 is exceptionally effective for drums and percussion in be able to capture the sound of each component of the kit.


Snare: Start with the i5 about 2 inches above the head and aimed towards the center of the drum. For more “rim” effect, the i5 can be aimed less towards the center and more towards the rim. It is not uncommon for engineers to place the mic practically right on the drum head to achieve a very tight, cracking sensation.


Toms, congas: Similar to snare. For tighter sound and more attack place, the mic closer to the head. For more decay and overtones pull the mic further away from the head.


Guitar cabs: The i5 can be placed within 1-2 inches of the grill cover at a 90 degree angle pointing directly into the speaker. If the mic is placed closer to the edge of the speaker, you will minimize the higher frequencies and get a warmer, fatter tone. To capture more highs, move the mic closer towards the center of the speaker, but avoid the middle of the speaker.


Horns: Place the mic within 1-3 inches of the bell, especially when on a stage with drums, bass, guitar, etc. For jazz, classical, and music where the stage volume is lower, the mic can be placed further away for a richer, fuller, sound.


Allow a distance of 2-3 feet between microphones to avoid phase cancellation issues.
