AT4040 Review


With the Sam Ash ASH ROCK rock group program, I record a lot of original music with the student bands. I'm always trying out different microphones, and just did a couple of projects with the AT4040 to record vocals. The signal was absolutely incredible, capturing all the dynamics low to high, soft to loud, from singers that varied greatly in style and vocal delivery. There was no noise whatsoever in the track, just crystal clear vocals. With my recording setup, I'm plugging the mics directly into an M-Audio interface, and not using high end processors...so microphone quality is very important, and this one delivered better than ones comparably priced. Highly recommend!

AAAH! Get. This. Mic.


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.
