  • Excerpt: Here we have a nice large diaphragm condenser mic from Audio Technica. It connects with a standard XLR mic cable. It does require phantom power from your preamp to work. The mic comes in a nice padded box and also comes with an elastic mounted shock absorber. The mic has a 10dB pad switch.

  • Summary: Das AT4040 klingt hart. Die Präsenzanhebung in den Höhen ist deutlich wahrnehmbar. Die Betonung liegt im 5-8kHz-Bereich, der Zischlaute besonders scharf, direkt und für manche Ohren unangenehm klingen lässt; das Mikrofon klingt "kompakt" bzw. eng, weswegen diese Zischlaute stark herausstechen.
