  • Excerpt: This is the first time it’s happened. As I was packing up the loaner 4047 to send back to Audio-Technica I got kinda sad. I’d been using this $500 beauty on everything — guitar amps, vocals, drums — you name it, it sounded great. I could set it up as a room mic for drums in spots where other mics have failed in the past, and it sounded clear and bright. On vocals there’s a breathy sort of intimacy that sits in the track perfectly for certain tunes.

  • Excerpt: 4047- a great mic. I love Hard rock/heavy guitar sounds like Sevendust, Korn, Vai, Buckethead, Zakk, Satriani. This mic is flat out awesome in this area. I put it right up 1" from the grill and receive a slammin' sound with very little work on mic placement. It gives the combination of clarity and brutality that is so hard to find in distorted g...

  • Excerpt: I used the AT4047 / SV in many situations all over Vachard each other, and gave the results may simply fantastic, especially on voices, though, like all high-end sensors, it is more at ease with some other singers. This microphone is perfectly at ease as the lead voice on the chorus. On several recordings I spent leveling, and I have used a mini...

  • Excerpt: I use it for 6 months especially on voice, rock mainly. A few days ago I used it on a woman's voice clear and powerful and there ... slap! Presence and sweetness that I never even had an AT4050 through the same preamp (AU LA610SE) and yet I am a fan of AT4050 on vocals! Edit: It's been 2 years that I work with this microph...
