Azden is showcasing some new wares at this year’s NAB convention, aimed directly at on-site recording. The SGM-250 shotgun mic employs a metal-alloy body with a newly designed microphone element aimed at doing what you want a good shotgun mic to do: provide a wide frequency response with low noise and high SPL handling, all while rejecting side image, all while operating on either phantom power or a single battery. The company has also unveiled an update to its popular FMX-42 with the FMX-42u, which now features analog-to-digital conversion for providing backups.

In broadcasting, it seems there is always a debate as to what kind of microphone is best to use—dynamic or condenser. Both have a list of pros and cons for any given broadcast application, and with the newly announced BP40 Large Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, it appears Audio-Technica is looking to combine the best of both worlds into a dynamic package. The mic sports a large (for a dynamic mic) 37.5mm diaphragm that provides some condenser-like articulation without betraying the low-end oomph of a dynamic. If you do need to tame that low end because of a rumbling room or extra-boomy voice, the mic does have a selectable high-pass filter. Also featured in the video is a look at the new AT2020USBi, a refresh to their popular USB mic that sees no changes to the capsule or sound capture quality, but an increase of its maximum sampling rate to 24-bit/96 kHz and the inclusion of both USB and Lightning connectors for hooking directly up to your iOS devices. Please check back for pricing and availability.
