The AT2040USB is an ideal microphone for creators, featuring a dynamic design for excellent voice capture with added USB functionality. Combining the broadcast-quality performance of the AT2040 dynamic podcast microphone with plug-and-play USB functionality makes this the ideal microphone for podcasters, streamers, and other content creators to achieve professional results.
When live streaming, outstanding sound is just as important as interesting content and high-quality video. The AT2040USB microphone ensures a natural frequency response with rich, powerful lows and crystal-clear studio sound, making it easy for YouTubers looking to increase their viewership and streamers wanting to gain a professional edge.
This dynamic microphone also touts its quality with a highly directional, hypercardioid pickup pattern that helps eliminate common ambient noise, like the hum of a computer fan. With a narrower pickup angle than a cardioid design, the AT2040USB provides focused vocal capture, which is ideal and super effective for creators and gamers who stream and chat with followers.
Additionally, the microphone’s robust metal body includes an integrated shock mount to minimize unwanted noise and vibration, while its internal pop filter protects against harsh spoken sounds. For added noise, shock, and vibration cancellation that may be transmitted through a mic stand, boom, or mount, users can purchase the AT8458a shock mount separately.
The AT2040USB is equipped with a built-in headphone jack for real-time audio monitoring with no delay. It also features a quick muting function, with the silent touch-sensitive capacitive mute button to quickly and easily mute audio at the microphone and a two-state LED indicator ring displays a blue light when the mic is on and ready to capture audio and indicates red when it is muted.
