Audio-Technica AT4050 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone Multi-Pattern
The Audio-Technica AT4050 is a phantom-powered bidirectional ribbon microphone. With the groundbreaking AT4080, Audio-Technica achieves the coveted ribbon microphone sound while solving the problems of fragility and low output that have historically plagued ribbon microphones. Delivering the warm, smooth sound of a classic ribbon microphone, Audio-Technica’s handcrafted AT4080 Ribbon Microphone offers a robust build for long-lasting, reliable performance and higher output for maximum compatibility with microphone preamplifiers. Equally at home in recording studios and live-sound settings, the microphone features Audio-Technica’s innovative MicroLinear™ ribbon imprint, which protects the dual ribbons from lateral flexing and distortion. Utilizing six new patents, Audio-Technica’s innovative ribbon transducer advances the evolution of ribbon microphone design. Experience the difference.
