The AT4040 side-address condenser microphone features an advanced large diaphragm tensioned specifically to provide smooth, natural sonic characteristics. A marriage of technical precision and artistic inspiration, the AT4040 offers exceptionally low noise, wide dynamic range and high-SPL capability for greatest versatility. This ultra-consistent microphone may be used with confidence in a wide variety of studio and live miking applications, even under the stringent demands of digital recording systems. The AT4040’s low-noise circuitry is symmetrical and transformerless, resulting in exceptional transient response and clean output signals for transparent reproduction of even the most troublesome of instruments and sound effects.

Sonically, the audio is crisp, it also has...
The AT4040 has been a workhorse in my project studio for years. I've used them on just about everything - horns, upright bass, grand piano, acoustic guitar, guitar cabs, and (my favorite) as drum overheads.
I find that the AT4040 subdues some of the mid and high-mid frequencies in voices. For...
I've been holding off writing this review for quite some time. Reason being, I'm at school for eng and I wanted a year or so of education and experience under my belt before I pretend to know what I'm talking about.
