Audio-Technica AT4040 overview

  • 1Description

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 - Studio 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 microphones 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 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, ambiance 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.
    Shock Mount
    The AT 4040 features the AT 8449 spring loaded shock-mount 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 75Hz, 18dB/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 192kHz 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 119dB
    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 Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable - 20' (6.1 m), Black

    The Kopul Studio Elite 4000 Series XLR M to XLR F Microphone Cable (20') is a studio-quality cable for connecting mics to mixers, preamps, audio interfaces and recorders; or to be used in any other application where XLR connectivity is required. The cable is engineered to be both quiet and durable, and is well-suited for critical recording and broadcast situations.

    Studio Elite 4000 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. A 98% braided outer shield makes the cable resistant to EMI and RFI noise. The Neutrix XX silver connectors provide a high level of connectivity, and all the solder connections are shrink-wrapped for protection.

    98% braided shield 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 also helps prevent external EMI from penetrating to the cable's core.
    24 AWG oxygen-free stranded copper inner core provides the best possible conductivity.
    Cotton yarn reduces electrostatic and microphonic noise.
    All solder points shrink-wrapped for protection.
    Neutrik XX silver connectors offer high conductivity.
    Cast zinc shell and chuck style strain relief.
