Audio-Technica AT4050 overview

  • 1Description

The AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone from Audio-Technica is a large-diaphragm side-address externally polarized condenser microphone with three switchable polar patterns: cardioid, omnidirectional, and figure-8. It can be used to capture audio for broadcast, studio, and sound reinforcement applications.

The AT4050 is powered by 48V phantom power and built with a 3-pin XLR output connector. It is equipped with a -10 dB pad that lowers the microphone sensitivity and provides higher SPL capability. This makes it applicable in a wide range of applications like vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, and guitar amp capture. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, high-quality performance.

Furthermore, a precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides solid element stability and maximum sensitivity. The AT4050 includes a shockmount, a microphone dust cover, and a protective carrying case.

Transparent uppers/mids balanced by rich low-end qualities combine with advanced acoustic engineering for extensive performance capabilities and high quality
Dual-diaphragm capsule design maintains precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process, allowing the optimum characteristics achieved to remain constant over years of use
Three switchable polar patterns: omni, cardioid, and figure 8
Transformerless circuitry minimizes low-frequency distortion and improves correlation of high-speed transients
State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics are compliant with Audio-Technica's consistency and reliability standards
Switchable 80 Hz hi-pass filter and 10 dB pad
Custom shockmount provides superior isolation
Includes protective carrying case and microphone dust cover

    Audio-Technica AT4050 reviews

    AT4050 Multi-Pattern Condenser Microphone is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Bang For Your Buck The AT4050 microphone is a great product. It gives an honest representation of sound whether you are recording vocals, flutes, or stringed instruments. I am a multi-instrumentalist and am very pleased with its capabilities in capturing the sonic qualities straight across the spectrum of musical instruments in numerous settings. The multi-pattern features are a huge bonus, along with the low cut and -10 dB pad switch. All I can say is that at the end of the day you got one heck of a good microphone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Nice! I've had the AT4050 for less than a month and today I did some very fine recording with it. I was impressed and decided to write here. It is a very good mic, very professional sounding, no compromise kind of mic. No surprise it is the best selling mic in its price range. Buy with confidence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good for the money Its not a neumann but is a VERY good mic!! Ive done some recordings for the university and it works great recording almost everything, from vibe to flute to saxophone to timpany... Ive used to record a flute in my new CD, if anyone wanna hear the sound, go to myspace - rafaeldelima, the music to listen is GAIA. we use a neumann u87 on sax, AKG c414 on guitar and acustic bass, neumann km184 on cello and 10 string guitar, just to number a few. If you compare the sound, the flute with the at4050 just sound very good side with this (well known) more expensive mics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile Mic Great mic, pattern options add for versatility. You may want to consider two mics for half this price though depending what you're doing.
    Date published: 2011-03-07
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Very good mic, with lots of details, very clean, accurate and transparent. On voice, you can ear each breath of the singer. I didn't give 5 stars because I was Expecting more gain (than the shure ksm32)but it give just the same output level. But sound is lots better!
