WNAMM12: Mic Features Dual Connectivity


Audio-Technica unveiled the new AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone at Winter NAMM 2012. They say that, ideal for recording instruments and vocals, this handheld dynamic microphone has both USB and XLR connections, enabling its use either with a computer or with a P.A. system. Here's more of what A-T has to say about it...
Its durable metal construction provides long-lasting performance. Its low-mass diaphragm and smooth, extended frequency response make the microphone ideally suited for podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, voiceover and live performance use.
The AT2005USB features a convenient headphone output with volume control that allows the user to monitor the audio signal right from the microphone. The mic's USB operation is compatible with both Windows- and Mac-based hardware and software. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the user's desired sound source.
