Audio Technica Stereo Condenser Microphone AT4050ST

Audio Technica Stereo Condenser Microphone AT4050ST AUDIO SYSTEM

Specification
    • Innovative side-address Mid-Side stereo microphone engineered for professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
    • Independent cardioid and figure-of-eight condenser elements
    • Switch selection of Mid-Side mode and two internally matrixed stereo modes
    • Dual-diaphragm capsules maintain precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
    • Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
    • The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics remain constant over years of use
    • Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
    • Integral 80 Hz high-pass filter switch and 10 dB pad switch
    • State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T’s stringent consistency and reliability standards
    • Custom shock mount provides superior isolation
    • Certified by the METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technology Alliance)
