People have different dreams, and this is a good thing as if we did not the world would be a very different and boring place! All of these differing dreams require very different pieces of equipment to make them happen, and one of the most versatile pieces of equipment out there is the humble microphone. There are a lot of different types out there which can all be used in a variety of ways, but the one we will be taking a look at today is the Audio Technica AT2035 to see exactly what it can do for you. This is a large diaphragm studio condenser microphone which is perfect to use in a variety of scenarios, so let’s see what it can do!
Tell me what features it has?
This microphone is a must have for a home studio, and this is reflected in the number of top quality features that it has. The cordioid polar pattern that is included within the package of the microphone will reduce the picking up of sounds from the side and rear, which in turn improves the isolation of the desired sound source. The large design of the diaphragm ensures smooth, natural sound and it even means that this microphone works well in low noise situations. The pop filter helps to eliminate the sometimes annoying plosives from your recordings, and the long 10 meter cable is plenty to suit most environments.
Sum up the positives for me.
The sound quality you get from this microphone is its biggest positive. It uses a variety of technology to ensure that the end result you get is a high as is possible, and you will likely be very pleased to hear this! The dynamics that you get from the Audio Technica are very good, it is incredibly good at the rejection of room and outside noise, it is very durable, and it is less sensitive to humidity than some other mics. One of the other major positives to consider with this microphone though is how it handles both plosive and sibilant sounds, as it deals with both very well and this is reflected in the high quality of the recordings you’ll get from it.
Better sum up the negatives too.
There are no real negative points to discuss when it comes to this microphone. The only minute thing that a couple of customers have mentioned is the fact that the microphone is not as stable as it could be. There is however a very simple way to solve this, and that is to go and grab a separate microphone stand!
What’s the conclusion?
If you are looking for a very solid microphone that will serve a purpose in almost all scenarios then this is the one for you. It is particularly good at picking up vocals, but it does not really matter what you want to use it for, it will excel! What are you waiting for? Let’s start your recording career today!
