  • Overview


    The new Artist Series vocal condenser microphone is tailored for exacting detail and high-fidelity vocal reproduction. With a condenser design for studio-quality performance, the ATM710 delivers remarkable clarity. The microphone is equipped with an integral 80 Hz hi-pass filter that provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off position that reduces the microphone's sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. The ATM710 is also equipped with a switchable 10 dB pad that lowers the microphone's sensitivity, providing higher SPL capability. The microphone’s cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear, improving isolation of the desired sound source.

    Unfortunately the prior response didn't really answer my question. I know the basics of how to avoid feedback.

    PA Speakers are aboout 6 feet in front of the performer. Stage monitor is about 3 feet in front of the performer

    We are currently using SM 58s. A performer has to be right on top of the mic. My primary reason for considering the ATM710 is the desire to have a microphone that is a little more forgiving i.e. you don't have to be right on top of it.

    Compared to a dynamic mic like the SM 58, how susestible is the ATM710 to feedback? Same? A little more? Much more.

    Thank you

    Answer: 
    This mike is WAY more sensitive than an SM58 - amazingly so.

    This means you can sing a lower level and stand back further from he mic, but it also means you are more likely to run into feedback problems.

    If you have a good engineer, you can set this up to have high sensitive and low feedback, however I would not call it forgiving. (worth the effort though)

    One note - on my voice this mic sounds both fuller and crisper than an SM58 even after adjusting the mix to minimise feedback.

    Considering the ATM710 Mic for use on stage in singer songwriter venue with PA and Stage Monitor. How susceptible is the mic to feedback? Have read some good reviews about live sound but none addressed feedback issue.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. Feedback, also known as the Larsen effect, occurs when the amplified sound from any loudspeaker reenters the sound system through an open microphone and is amplified again and again, causing a loop. We often tell customers that feedback is not the fault of the microphone because any microphone will feed back given the right conditions (or maybe in this context, wrong conditions). However, there are some steps that you can take to avoid or lessen the likelihood of feedback. Try some of these:

    •Keep the microphone behind the main loudspeakers to minimize the sound that can reenter the microphone. If the microphone is in front of the speakers, then feedback is nearly guaranteed. You may notice this when a performer or presenter steps out into the crowd and finds themselves in front of the speakers. More often than not the result is that loud, ugly, screeching sound.
    • This cardioid microphone has its maximum sound rejection at the rear of the mic. Keep monitors or loudspeakers aimed at this area of maximum rejection
    •Place the microphone close to the sound source. When you reduce the distance between the sound source and the microphone by half, you double the sound pressure level at the microphone. This is an application of the inverse square law. It increases your gain before feedback (i.e., it allows your sound system to produce more SPL before reaching a level that would induce feedback). In other, simpler words, if you move the microphone closer to the sound source (your mouth, for example) the sound will be louder, so you can turn down the volume at your mixer. This will greatly reduce the likelihood of feedback.
    •Feedback will occur at different frequencies at different volumes. Use an equalizer or the EQ section of your mixer to find the offending frequency and cut back that frequency. There are commercially available feedback eliminators that automatically dampen the frequencies where feedback is occurring. You have to be careful when using these because sometimes they can go too far and notch out frequencies too deeply and make you sound a bit hollow.
    • The ATM710 has a 10 dB pad. By engaging this pad you make the microphone less sensitive, which may help. Please note you will need to compensate at the PA.

    Following these steps should help you avoid feedback. But if you continue to run into feedback issues while using your A-T mic, please contact our Audio Solutions Department so we can troubleshoot the problem
