The CADLive D90 supercardioid dynamic handheld mic is outfitted with a Trueflex diaphragm and PowerGap high- gauss neodymium magnets creating a hot and articulate live performance vocal microphone.
CAD Audio has become well-known for its overachieving products, especially considering its various lines’ relatively low price points. First thriving in the project studio with its Equitek line and now, having ventured into broadcast production and sound reinforcement markets via the broadening of its Equitek and CADLive brands, respectively, CAD provides a broad range of transducer-based solutions to nearly all pro-audio market segments
The CADLive D90 is a straightforward supercardioid dynamic handheld well-suited for a variety of applications in any live, studio or institutional environment where offaxis rejection, relatively smooth frequency response and rugged build quality are necessities. Even in the crowded handheld dynamic marketplace, the D90 has some notable characteristics that help it stand out from the pack.
Beyond the need for a generally flat frequency response to suit a wide range of sound sources, the D90 features a fairly pronounced top-end boost when compared to an array of competing models from other manufacturers. This can be useful when a sound source (usually vocals) must “cut” through a thick mix; this is also particularly useful in many houses-of-worship and other generally acoustically absorbent environments. This same frequency signature sounds great on clean guitar/guitar cabinet, snare drum and other instances where a bit more “bite” is desirable.
