Lewitt DTP 640 REX Product Overview by GAK
A dual-capsule Kick Drum Mic from Lewitt, the DTP 640 combines a dynamic and a condenser capsule in one housing, allowing you to uniquely record and shape the sound of your kick drum.
The dynamic mic helps to capture the kick drums attack, where as the Condenser mic makes sure you capture all the low end rumble. Each microphone has its own dedicated output though, so it's possible to blend the two depending how you want your kick to sound.
The DTP 640 REX has 3 onboard sound shaping modes; Linear, Dynamic Enhanced Frequency Response and Dual Enhanced Frequency Response.
Lewitt Product Overview
The DTP 640 REX features an innovative dual element design, that combines a dynamic and a condenser capsule in one housing. Switchable frequency responses make for kick-drum sounds that are rich and intense or flat and neutral. In order to ensure full control over the two elements, each has a dedicated output.
Two perfectly phase aligned microphones in one housing. This enables you to shape the kick drum sound in unique ways. The dynamic element ensures accurate reproduction of kick drum attack, while the condenser element captures the drum's low end. Each element has a dedicated output.
Thanks to its Dual-Element Technology and fine-tuned frequency responses the DTP 640 REX offers unparalleled, powerful sound that will impress drummers and sound engineers alike. The DTP 640 REX is equipped with a high-quality dynamic element and a condenser element – the dynamic element ensures accurate reproduction of the bass drum kick, while the condenser element captures the rich low frequency sound of the drum’s shell. In order to guarantee full control over the two elements, they can be mixed, each using its own channel. The DTP 640 REX provides 3 sound-shaping modes: "Linear" captures the sound in a natural way. "Dynamic Enhanced Frequency Response" has the dynamic element boosts frequencies between 3 and 5 kHz while the condenser stays neutral. "Dual Enhanced Frequency Response" delivers the ultimate full-bodied sound by having the dynamic element focuses on the 3 and 5 kHz-range while the condenser element focuses on frequencies from 70 to 150 Hz to deliver full body sound. Each element has its output! Combining these features with the comprehensive tonal freedom of Dual-Element Technology opens up a wide range of use, turning the DTP 640 REX into a universal tool for bass-heavy applications.
