Characteristic of all N/DYM microphones is the outstanding neodymium-iron-boron magnetic structure. This structure provides greater sensitivity for exceptional signal-to-noise ratio and improved recording quality. Combining the N/DYM magnetic structure with a large, reinforced diaphragm results in a transducer manifesting a warm, open, and transparent sound quality normally found in studio-quality microphones. The N/D468 also includes a highly effective humbucking coil that reduces hum interference from lighting and other electrical power sources.
N/DYM microphones feature EV's AcoustiDYM shock-mount system. This unique vibration isolating system works as a multistage device. At low frequencies, a rear sound wave cancels the diaphragm motion while, at high frequencies, the specially designed rubber shock mount isolates the transducer from motion. Combined with the windscreen bumper, the shock mount forms an advanced technology, vibration-isolating system that dramatically reduces all forms of handling noise for the most demanding situations.
To ensure superior gain-before-feedback in live performance and acoustic isolation in recording studio environments, the N/D468 is constructed with a supercardioid polar pattern. The supercardioid pattern yields greater rejection and acoustic isolation to off-axis sounds than the typical heart-shaped cardioid pattern. For enhanced clarity, the polar response is also unusually uniform with frequency. The impact of the supercardioid polar design is to reduce the likelihood of feedback in live performance conditions, particularly with typical monitor speaker placements.
The N/D468 pop filters unique design utilizes a specially processed Acoustifoam filter to minimize wind noise and vocal pops. This design makes the pop filter an integral part of the microphones removable front grille assembly, allowing easy cleaning for continued top performance.
The N/D468s low-frequency response varies with the distance of the sound source to the microphone. This is known as proximity effect. Maximum bass response is produced in close-up use with the microphone 1/4-inch from the sound source. Minimal bass response is experienced at distances greater than 24 inches. By working closer to the microphone, the instrument will sound more robust. The pivoting yoke designed for the N/D468 allows this type of versatile microphone placement.
Close miking will also reduce the potential for feedback from a PA sound system. This benefit is in addition to the feedback-reducing supercardioid polar pattern. When close-talked, the substantial bass boost provides an increase in overall microphone out-put level. The mixer gain may be proportionately reduced, resulting in a reduction of the systems sensitivity to feedback caused by sound entering the microphone from the loudspeakers.
The dynamic element of the N/D468 will provide reliable operation in extreme temperature, humidity, and other adverse conditions that would render typical condenser microphones useless. These N/D468 features will provide years of trouble-free operation.
