Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone

Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more!

Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone Details

The Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone is the studio condenser that captures every nuance. With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050 exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity.

The Audio Technica AT4050 Multi-Pattern Microphone is ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, acoustic guitars, and more.

Polar Patterns

The omnidirectional polar pattern is sensitive to sound coming from all directions. Select the omni pattern to pick up several voices or instruments on the same microphone, to diminish proximity effect, and to preserve the locationâ??s ambient sound.

The cardioid polar pattern is more sensitive to sound originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in controlling feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers.

The figure-of-eight polar pattern is more sensitive to sound originating in the front and back of the microphone, rejecting sounds from the sides. It is often used in conjunction with advanced stereo miking techniques.

AT4050 Features and Provisions

The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. The microphone is equipped with a switchable 10 dB pad and a switch that permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz high-pass filter).

The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8449 shock mount provides superior isolation and permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A dust cover and a protective

carrying case are also included.
