Detailed Information
The AT4050 is one of Sweetwater’s best-selling vocal mics, and for good reason! Utilizing a low-noise transformerless design and multiple polar patterns, the AT4050 is ideal for use in the most demanding recording situations. It uses dual gold-plated, aged, large-diaphragm condenser elements for extended frequency response, while floating construction elements provide isolation from noise and vibration. Transparent highs, rich lows and low noise The AT4050 produces transparent highs and mids balanced by rich low-end qualities, while its advanced acoustic engineering guarantees extensive performance capabilities and highest quality. The AT4050’s transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients. Multiple polar patterns for versatility Adding to the AT4050’s value are the three polar patterns. You can select from cardioid, figure-8 or omnidirectional settings to tailor the AT4050 to any source you’re recording. In addition, a switchable 80Ha highpass filter and a 10dB pad allow even more flexibility in capturing a multitude of sources. This mic can stand up to high SPLs and still deliver transparent sound! Precision-built diaphragm and state-of-the-art electronics The AT4050’s 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics achieved remain constant over years of use. State-of-the-art surface-mount electronics make the AT4050 another of A-T’s incredibly consistent and reliable microphones!
