The side-address Audio-Technica AT4050ST Stereo Condenser Microphone is externally polarized (DC bias). Its independent cardioid and figure-eight elements are configured in a mid-side arrangement with switch-selectable internal matrixing.
Select from either a left-right stereo output (wide 127° or narrow 90°) via the microphone’s internal matrixing system, or choose discrete mid-side signals for later manipulation. The Audio-Technica 4050ST mic is designed to meet the most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement. The AT4050ST microphone includes a 5.0m (16.5’) dual output cable terminating in a 5-pin XLRF-type to 2 standard 3-pin XLRM-type connectors. The microphone output is a 5-pin XLRM-type connector. The AT4050ST microphone is equipped with a switchable 10 dB pad and a switch selects flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80Hz high-pass filter).
Audio-Technica encloses the AT4050 microphone in a rugged housing. The included AT8449 shock mount provides superior isolation and permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A dust cover and a protective carrying case are also included.
- Innovative side-address Mid-Side stereo microphone engineered for professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement - Independent cardioid and figure-of-eight condenser elements - Switch selection of Mid-Side mode and two internally matrixed stereo modes - Dual-diaphragm capsules maintain precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone - Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients - The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics remain constant over years of use - Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections - Integral 80Hz high-pass filter switch and 10dB pad switch - State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T’s stringent consistency and reliability standards - Custom shock mount provides superior isolation - Certified by the METAlliance (Music Engineering and Technology Alliance) - Accessories: AT8449 shock mount for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, microphone dust cover, protective carrying case
