|The Audio Technica AT2020USB+ is one of the best and most popular USB microphones available on the market for recording audio into your favourite editing software.
Don't be fooled by its looks, it may appear to be a conventional microphone that you'd expect to be terminated in a 3 pin XLR but this model is provided with USB connectivity. The quality of audio reproduced by this microphone is second to none and is better than others on the market. The ability to mount the microphone using the integral mic stand fitment, shock mount or adjustable tripod stand makes perfect placement in the studio very easy to achieve.
The analogue to digital conversion results in superb audio thanks to the 16 bit 44.1/48kHz sample rate. Other features include a headphone connection to allow you to monitor the signal without any delay and a mix control gives the opportunity to blend the microphone signal with pre-recorded audio feeds.
The unit boasts an extended, but smooth, response that lends itself perfectly to podcasting, voiceover use, recording and home studio applications.
