Audio-Technica has introduced the AT2020USB+ Cardioid Condenser Microphone. They say that, equipped with a USB output, this microphone is designed for digitally capturing music or any acoustic audio source employing users' favorite recording software. They tell us that the AT2020USB+ offers studio-quality articulation and intelligibility perfect for home studio recording, field recording, podcasting and voiceover use.
A spokesperson told Sonic State, "The AT2020USB+ features a built-in headphone jack with volume control that allows users to directly monitor their microphone signal in real time, and a built-in high-output internal headphone amplifier that delivers superior clarity. The microphone also offers mix control that can blend the microphone's signal with pre-recorded audio (perfect for DJ/karaoke use). The unit's cardioid pickup pattern delivers excellent off-axis rejection, while its A/D converter, with a 16-bit 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate, ensures extremely articulate sound reproduction."
The microphone is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000, and Mac OS X. It is powered from a USB Bus and includes a tripod desk stand, stand mount, USB cable and soft protective carrying pouch.
Pricing and Availability:
The AT2020USB+ will be available February 2013 with a U.S. MSRP of $279.00.
