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.

    AT4040 Studio Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most impressive I use a pair of these mics to record a grand piano. The sensitivity and range can make it challenging to find the right placement, especially with a piano that can make a lot of extraneous noise like an older action or loud damper release, but once you find the sweet spot these are really great. I've also used one for VOs in documentary work I do as a filmmaker and it's surprisingly good with a decent pre. Super good construction and shock mount, case, etc. Overall, I think these are the best deal going in a low price condenser mic and are a steal at the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality predictable studio mic This mic fits the bill for the all around studio mic. I purchased it for voice over work but it sounds great on guitars and other acoustic applications. I believe it is the best large diaphram condenser in this price range.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great for small budget great mic for a small budget. has a nice crisp sound on the vocal, but its not always clear as far as your voice goes. i thought it may have been my room and setting or maybe just me. i tested it against other mics i had and it was just this mic.. when it seems to be working well the mic does sound great but if your trying to avoid a little hassle i say choose another mic. if you don't mind a little hassle then i say go for it. i also returned this item.
