Accurately captures sound

The innovative large diaphragm capsule within the AT4040 condenser microphone has a cardioid polar pattern. Cardioid polar patterns are perfect for a huge range of applications - with more sensitivity at the front of the microphone and significantly less at the sides and rear, a cardioid pattern reduces the capture of ambient noise and unwanted sound sources. This powerful pattern is ideal for live performances and studio recording, be it spoken-word, vocals, instrumentation and more. The narrow angle of sensitivity minimizes bleed from other sources, capturing only what you want to be heard.

Best possible performance

When you've invested into creating the ultimate recording system, the last thing you want is noise making its way into your signal path and ruining your recordings or performance. That's what makes the AT4040 a perfect choice no matter what you intend to capture - the ultra-low operating noise of the mic ensures you get the best quality sonic performance out of your rig. Whether your setup is sophisticated or straightforward, the Audio Technica AT4040 seamlessly integrates into your workflow without adding unwanted colouration to your sound.
