Audio-Technica has announced two limited-edition versions of its AT2020 Cardioid Condenser Microphone – the AT2020V (standard) and the AT2020USB+V (USB model).

Audio-Technica AT2020V Cardioid Condenser MicrophoneThe visually striking reflective silver finish is meant not only to celebrate the mic’s sound quality but ‘to mirror the creative force of its user, making these mics well suited to use by YouTubers, livestreamers and other content creators’.

These rugged side-address condensers are equipped with low-mass diaphragms custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. The mics’ cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of target sound source. All models in the AT2020 mic line – the price/performance standard in side-address studio condenser microphone technology – offer a wide dynamic range and handle high SPLs. Both of the limited edition V models come with AT8458a shock mounts to attenuate any noise, shock, or vibration transmitted through a mic stand, boom or mount.

The AT2020V is optimised for vocal pickup in personal studio applications and features an analogue XLR output for connection to a digital converter or mixer. The AT2020USB+V is aimed at podcasting, streaming, home studio recording and voiceover use, with the convenience of plug-and-play USB operation. The AT2020USB+V features a built-in high-output headphone amplifier with volume control that allows direct monitoring of the microphone signal with no delay. It also offers a mix control that blends microphone and pre-recorded audio. The microphone’s A/D converter supports up to 44.1/48kHz, 16-bit sampling. A 10ft (3.1m) USB cable is included.

The limited edition AT2020V and AT2020USB+V are currently available at US$149 (AT2020V)and US $199 (AT2020USB+).
