A great mic for male voiceovers as wel las taming harsh sources

Matti H, 05.06.2017
The AtoMic is a cardioid only FET condenser microphone with a lot of character. It has a particularly dark sound along with fairly smooth, recessed highs. Its low end pickup is excellent, proving useful for male voices in particular, whether sung or spoken. This is by no means a workhorse microphone, as it colors the original source with a stroke of warmth and smoothness that otherwise isn't there, but that's exactly why I like it.

You get very few extras in the box. Namely, a user's manual, a warranty registration card and a mic clip for holding the microphone. While a shockmount would have been nice, I'm confident that cutting costs on that end only let Violet Design put more money into the microphone itself, and it shows when you listen to it. The build is quite good with a single layer headbasket (this microphone is thus quite sensitive to pops) and a - seemingly - all metal construction. The body itself has a luxurious, textured finish in violet and with gold text. Also, this microphone is significantly smaller than I initially realized, so keep that in mind.

Ingenious microphone with soft sound!

FabManDo, 13.07.2015
I recently ordered The AtoMic to listen to it as compared to my previous Oktava MK220. I'm excited!! It strikes the octava by lengths. Despite the smaller 21mm diaphragm, it has a low noise level and is louder in the level around 3-4dB than the Oktava. While I would describe the sound of the MK220 as a bit mid-nasal with audible distortions in the treble, the AtoMic is much more balanced in the frequency range, it sounds very warm and round, has a stress in the lower mids and a subtle increase in the range of presence (7kHz ). A very successful microphone, which I can recommend for voice, acoustic instruments and many more.
