Earlier this year, Audio-Technica exhibited at the Audio Engineering Society’s Pro Audio convention in New York City. Our team was excited to debut a variety of new professional audio equipment, including four streaming/podcasting bundles. These content creation bundles were designed with podcasters, YouTubers, live-streamers, videographers, and content creators of all kinds in mind, providing turnkey audio solutions for content creation. Continue reading to learn about each of the new streaming/podcasting packs and their unique features.
Comprised of an AT2020 cardioid condenser microphone, a pair of ATH-M20x professional monitor headphones, and a studio boom arm threaded with an XLR cable, the AT2020PK pack was created with streamers’ needs in mind.
The AT2020 side-address studio condenser microphone’s low-mass diaphragm sets it apart from similar microphones. With a dynamic range that can handle high SPLs easily, the AT2020 offers the ability to extend frequency response and deliver high quality transient response, resulting in excellent voice reproduction. The boom’s arm can securely attach to surfaces up to 55 mm (2.2″) thick, and it includes a 5/8″-27 thread to easily attach to the included pivoting microphone stand mount, as well as an internally threaded XLR cable. Lastly, the bundle includes the ATH-M20x pro headphones. Equipped with 40 mm drivers, the ATH-M20x headphones are tuned for enhanced low-frequency performance in the studio. Ideal for streamers who record long sessions, the M20x headphones are both comfortable and durable.
Equipped with the same boom arm and ATH-M20x headphones as the AT2020PK bundle, the AT2020USB+PK also includes the AT2020USB+ cardioid condenser USB microphone. Designed specifically for capturing vocals using software for recording, the AT2020USB+PK bundle is perfect for musicians, recording artists, and home studio recorders. The microphone’s built-in headphone jack allows users to easily control the volume and monitor its signal instantaneously. The AT2020USB+ microphone’s cardioid pickup pattern also delivers industry standard off-axis rejection, while the A/D converter – with a 16-bit, 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate – guarantees high quality audio, making the AT2020USB+PK bundle any streamer or podcaster’s dream.
The AT2035 studio condenser microphone delivers exceptional clarity and low noise when recording. Equipped with a switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter and 10 dB pad, the AT2035 provides professional-quality, high-sound pressure levels. The microphone also comes with an AT8458 shock mount to reduce any unwanted noise, shock, or vibration that the boom may be causing. Lastly, the analog XLR output connects easily to a digital converter or mixer to make editing easier than ever.
The AT2005USBPK vocal microphone pack offers content creators a versatile, easy-to-install, easy-to-adjust boom microphone setup. The pack features the AT2005USB cardioid dynamic USB/XLR microphone, a studio boom arm, and ATH-M20x headphones from A-T’s critically acclaimed M-Series line.
The AT2005USB microphone’s cardioid polar pattern specializes in reducing the pickup of unwanted background noise while recording to deliver the highest quality audio for creators. The AT2005USBPK pack’s boom can easily be attached to its microphone stand clamp, as it comes equipped with a standard 5/8″-27 thread. Capable of a full 360° rotation, the boom arm can also be quickly repositioned while recording. Lastly, the ATH-M20x offer users the highest quality of audio courtesy of a comfortable pair of sound-isolating professional headphones.
