– Assumed from Audio-Technica AT4040

Good microphone for a relatively small budget

BenjaminW, 18.12.2009
The Audio Technica AT 4040 is a large membrane condensation microphone, which is optically delivered in matte black & thus at first sight simple, but still good looks.

The directional characteristic is kidney / cardioid, which means that the sound coming from the rear is very much attenuated (off axis) and it is thus possible to fight noise in the room / studio well. At the rear there is a PAD switch (-10 dB pre-attenuation) & a lowcut, which works at 80 Hz with a strength of 12 dB / octave - so it is possible to filter low frequencies or sound already from the signal before this Into the sequencer.

The input signal can be strong according to manufacturer up to 145 dB SPL (without activation of the pad switch 155 dB SPL), at 1% THD (measured at 1 kHz, of course). Thus, it is also possible to take louder sound pressure levels without noticeable distortions, such as a bassdrum, although other microphones are certainly more predestined.

If one looks at the frequency response of the microphone, it is noticeable that this is not quite linear. However, this does not pose a problem, a boost at 5-8 kHz & at 10-15 kHz miss the AT 4040 a brilliant high resolution & acceptable passivity still supported by the minimum boost in the 2 kHz range.

How does that sound? I can tell from my experience that the vocals always had a warm sound character, BUT, and that is different from intonation to intonation & artist, I often had to do with a certain hiss in the recordings. This is, however, not a stumbling block, but can be combated with targeted microphoneing also without problems.

All in all a microphone, which is worth its price.

– Assumed from Audio-Technica AT4040

With one of the best in its price class

M.BausA., 05.11.2009
An all-round microphone for vocals, wind instruments, piano, acoustic guitars, eGitarre as well as under the snare or as a room micro! The AT4040 covers surprisingly many areas and has its own charm. Vocals sound fresh and chrisp in the treble with a suitable preamp, while wind players, like trumpets and trombones, do not sound too high in the treble.

The spider, which seems quite robust and has so far experienced many upgrades and dismantals without being able to escape. -10db pad and an impact sound filter are also available. If you use the microphone on loud instruments (eg under the snare), it is recommended to have a PAD in the preamp again.

If you manage with a kidney characteristic, you get little else for your money elsewhere. The next league then starts at> 700EUR. If you want to be even more flexible, the AT4050 should look more closely.
