The Audio Technica AT4040 Condenser Microphone with Preamp & Cable Kit from B&H features an AT4040 large-diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone, a Focusrite ISA One microphone preamp, and a premium XLRF-to-XLRM microphone cable. The kit has everything you need for vocal recordings and is also suitable for recording instruments such as pianos, guitars, strings, and more.

The AT4040's side-address condenser mic has a large diaphragm that is tuned to provide a smooth, natural sonic characteristic. Its cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis signal, which reduces ambient and residual noise, and offers a wider dynamic range and high-SPL capability.

The ISA One microphone preamplifier with a Lundahl input transformer, (essentially the same circuit as the ISA110), has been used for 30 years and imparts a character to the sound that is ideal for use with classic microphones. In addition, four carefully selected impedances allow you to match the microphone to input sources in different ways that bring out more distinctiveness.

Audio-Technica AT4040 - Cardioid Large Diaphragm Studio Condenser Capacitor Microphone

The Audio-Technica AT4040 is a large-diaphragm, cardioid capacitor microphone designed for use in the most demanding recording applications. Intended for vocal and general instrument recording (piano, guitars, string instruments, etc.), the microphone's cardioid polar pattern minimizes off-axis signal, reducing ambient and residual noise, and delivers pristine low-noise recordings. The AT4040 has an integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter which provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The high-pass position reduces the microphone's sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. It also reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation, and mechanically-coupled vibrations.

Cardioid Polar Pattern

The cardioid polar pattern effectively minimizes off-axis signal, reducing residual noise caused by instruments, ambience, etc.

Quality Element and Baffle

The Audio-Technica AT 4040 features a gold-plated element and nickel-plated brass element baffle, providing pristine audio fidelity with a very low noise floor.

Transformerless Circuitry

In addition to the element, the transformerless design ensures even less noise and best possible presence.

Shockmount

The AT 4040 features the AT 8449 spring-loaded shockmount, providing maximum protection against noise caused by shock and handling of the microphone and stand.

Focusrite ISA ONE - Microphone Preamp

The ISA One from Focusrite is a single-channel, transformer-based microphone preamp, based on the original ISA 110 preamp that formed the cornerstone of each channel of the legendary Forte console. It features classic vintage topology and includes the Lundahl L1538 transformer and a custom Zobel network.

In addition to switchable input impedance settings for the microphone preamp, the unit includes a line input on XLR and 1/4" TRS phone jacks. An independent DI channel features a dedicated gain control, active or passive impedance switch, a 1/4" TRS output for routing to an amplifier, and an independent XLR output on the rear.

The ISA One features an insert point should the need arise to place extra signal processing between the preamp or DI, and the optional analog-to-digital converter. Phantom power, phase reverse and a 75 Hz, 18 dB/octave high-pass filter are also available from the angled front fascia.

Independent input metering for both channels is provided by a moving coil VU meter with variable calibration to suit analog and digital recording media, alongside two six-LED peak meters. Inputs can be metered either pre- or post-insert. The meter calibrations utilize the same reference points as Digidesign's Pro Tools HD systems, allowing effortless integration with Pro Tools.

Classic single-channel Focusrite microphone preamp with Independent DI
Ideal for both engineers and demanding performers alike, featuring independent gain control, an output for routing to an amp, an independent XLR output on the rear and routing to the optional ADC
Four, carefully selected, switchable input-impedance levels (including the original ISA 110 setting), to match or enhance the performance of any microphone
Headphone output with volume control can feed either a sum of the two inputs to the headphones output, or an external stereo cue mix (such as a stereo mix feed from an interface) via two TRS Jack inputs on the rear of the unit
Optional stereo 192 kHz analog-to-digital conversion card utilizes cutting-edge conversion technology and Focusrite analog circuitry to deliver the highest A/D performance with a dynamic range of 119 dB
Dedicated insert point allows the user to place extra processing such as an EQ or compressor, between the preamplifier or DI and the optional converter

Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20', Black)

The black Kopul Premium Performance 3000 Series XLR Male to XLR Female Microphone Cable (20') is designed to be an extremely quiet and flexible cable that is ideal for the most demanding live sound and performance applications. The cable is engineered to be durable and provide protection against EMI, RFI, and static noise. While the cable's color-coding affords the ability to quickly differentiate between multiple connections on stage, it provides a pleasant aesthetic quality at the same time.

Premium Performance 3000 Series cables are made from 24-AWG OFC copper wire that's wrapped with PE insulation and a conductive PVC inner shield. A cotton-yarn inner layer helps reduce electrostatic and microphonic noise. The 95% dual-spiral shielding makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrik XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

95% dual-spiral shielding offers protection from EMI and RFI noise
Twin conductive PVC inner shielding provides 100% coverage of the core conductor. It helps keep the cable's signal from radiating and affecting nearby cables and helps prevents external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core
24-AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity
