    Comments about Audio Technica AT4040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I actually bought this from a brick-and-mortar Sam Ash store, having messed around with cheap mics before for vocals. No more. About to be a broke college student, I rounded up the last bits of my expendable income and threw down for a Steinberg CI2 (Also awesome) and this guy. BOY was it worth it. As the sales rep told me, "This is one of the flattest mics we've got." And it is. Beautiful accurate representation. The best part? It's danged quiet. Enough that, in a room of fans and AC vents, background noise was indistinguishable on my vocal track. Absolutely terrific, entirely recommended.

      Comments about Audio Technica AT4040 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

      I love my AT4040! I use it with a Presonus EUREKA and the sound is just immaculate. I gave it a 4.5 because I want to see how well it holds up to a rigorious recording schedule.
