Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020USBi Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone:
This mic is a good mic with exceptional sound quality,lightweight,and versatile in the sense that you can use it with an iphone/ipad. However the proprietary connector on the mic can not be found anywhere else and if by chance it breaks then you can not get any third party connectors anywhere. Audio technica should have included two pairs of connectors in the occasion that one breaks.Also be aware that this mic does not include a port to monitor your audio. Unless you are a die hard apple phone user and need a better mic then I would recommend some of audio technicas other mics.

Q:Will the lightning connector work with an older model at2020 USB microphone? If so, how can I get the lightning cable?
Q:What is the best shock mount for the usb AT2020?
Q:Do you have a similar product that has stereo? It's not clear whether this is a mono or stereo microphone. Basically I'm looking for a stereo "kit" to attach to a Windows or Mac laptop to record recitations in a small room.
A:We don't have a stereo USB mic, but you might want to look at the AT2022, which is a stereo mic that terminates in a 3.5mm connection.
Q:If using the AT2020USBi in a Windows PC environment for voice capture, will the 24bit sampling rate be used? or does it convert to 16bit?
A:The Windows USB Audio Driver generally uses the highest bit-depth and sample rate it is capable of when using any Audio-Technica USB products. This is also relative to the highest bit-depth and sample rate the USB audio product is capable of. This is why the AT2020USBi lists "up to 96k" for its sample rate. Most computers today support 24bit, so the microphone should default to 24 bit.
Q:How do I connect my USB mic to Pro Tools 10 Aggregate?
A:When you plug the AT2020USBi microphone into the USB connection of the computer, it will be recognized as an external soundcard. Within your software (if applicable) you will select the AT2020USBi (external USB CODEC) as your input device.
Q:Hi, I'd like to know what kind of cable the USB one is. Mine broke and I need a replacement but I don't know which to buy.
A:Please contact our Parts Department at (330) 686-2600 ext 5002 or at Parts@atus.com for assistance with this.
Q:Hi, i just saw a youtube video about usbi and the guy said the 24bit/96khz sampling rate will work for ios/mac and if connected to windows, it will do 16bit/44-48khz, is that true? i was going to order the usb+ as a windows user, but i saw the new usbi, is it gonna sound any better compared to the usb+? or should i just order the usb+ now? since i found the headphone monitoring extremely useful.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. If you need or want headphone monitoring I suggest buying the USB + version.
Q:Will this mic work while recording video on an iPhone with the built-in camera app?
A:Yes, as long as the phone has the lightning type connector on it.
Q:Live Inpur Monitoring on iOS Devices
A:No, the limitation is the power provided by iDevices.
Q:Why no headphone jack?
A:Because there is not enough current available from the lightning connector to power a headphone amplifier.
