Audio-Technica AT5040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone at a Glance:
State-of-the-art diaphragm delivers high definition sound
Using recent breakthroughs in sound-capture technology, Audio-Technica has developed a four-part rectangular element for the AT5040. These four matched ultra-thin diaphragms function as a single unit (with outputs proprietarily summed) and provide a surface area that is twice the size of a standard 1" diaphragm. By using four diaphragms in a single capsule you get all the benefits of an extra-large element with an extremely low noise floor. The cardioid polar pattern of the Audio-Technica AT5040 rejects unwanted sound from the sides and back of the mic, making it perfect for recording in the studio.
Internal shockmount keeps unwanted noise away
Audio-Technica has gone to great lengths to make sure the AT5040 delivers only the purest of sounds. An internal shockmount decouples the capsule from the body. This cuts down any handling noise and extraneous vibrational noise that can creep into your take. The included AT8480 shockmount further cuts down any vibrations.
Transparent highs, rich lows and low noise
The AT5040 produces transparent highs and mids balanced by rich low-end qualities, while its advanced acoustic engineering guarantees extensive performance capabilities and highest quality. The Audio-Technica AT5040's condenser design offers a remarkably musical performance, with a profound realism and depth that you have to hear to believe. Ideal for studio vocals, this mic gives you a wide dynamic range with exceptionally low noise.
Precision-built diaphragm and electronics
The Audio-Technica AT5040's 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragm is just the beginning of this amazing mic's sound. Only carefully selected discreet components are used in the AT5040 to deliver optimized capsule performance. Each microphone is hand assembled and inspected insuring the the highest quality control available.
