Q:I'm sure I am not the first Court Stenographer who has asked about this product. We have microphones in our courtroom, but they are not connected to any audio system that records the person speaking. They are only to amplify their voices. There are always too many people speaking at one time and their voices seem to get scrambled and inaudible at times. We are the type of professionals who try to get every word said as spoken. I saw one of these microphones owned by another reporter placed on top of the Judge's podium, but I'm not sure what the quality of audio is. I have a Sony IC digital recorder with a USB port. Am I able to connect this microphone to my recorder? I would just like something that I could move away from where I am seated to get better quality audio from others located away from me in the courtroom. Any help with types of microphones or other devices for my purposes would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
A:This microphone does not have a USB connection. Check out the AT2020USB+ as this would plug directly into your recorder and give you great sound!
Q:can I link tow pro44 together into 1 microphone input
A:To provide you with the best possible answer/support, please contact the Audio-Technica division for your world area:
Q:Mic a piano
A:Boundary Microphones are a popular alternative for micing a piano. However, using Boundary microphones on a piano can be quite challenging. For starters, mounting can be an issue. Typically, Gaffer (Gaff) Tape would be more commonly used to keep the boundary microphone in place. Do NOT use Duct Tape! The other challenge is microphone placement. For this, you will need to experiment until you get the sound you are looking to accomplish. A good place to start would be approximately 8" from the hammers, and use two microphones (one to cover the higher notes, another to cover the lower notes). Apart from using the 3:1 Rule of Microphone Placement, most of the time, it is best to move the microphones around and stop when they sound good to you.
Q:what would you recommend for a ceiling mount microphone
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that connecting any microphone directly into a DVR may be problematic because the DVR may be expecting a "Line Level" input. Also, the microphone requires phantom power. You may need a preamp or mixer to boost the output of the microphone as well as provide phantom power. Another choice for a ceiling microphone would be the ES945. Please note you would still have the same issues as described above, but the form factor may better suit your need.
Q:how is it powered..and can it be plugged in via rca type ends to dvr?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. The microphone requires phantom power from a mixer or other audio device. It cannot be connected directly to a DVR via RCA connectors.
Q:Adjustments to amplifier?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. You almost always need to make adjustments with any microphone. Such things as volume and EQ need to be set to get the sound you are looking for based on the room accoustics.
Q:Is the Pro 44 useful for theatrical sound reinforcement?
A:thank you for your inquiry. We have many customers using the Pro 44 in this application.
Q:How does this mic compare with ES961 performance and RFI
A:The ES961 is a mic better microphone and includes our UniGuard technology for filtering and resisting RFI. The Pro44, while being a nice microphone, does not have the UniGuard technology.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. A good rule of thumb is one microphone for every 2 people.
Q:can I install it on the ceiling and using it to pick up sound from people sitting down? is the sound going be some how good ? how it's powered?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Even though the microphone has keyhole slots on the bottom to hold it down, I would not mount it on a ceiling because I would be afraid that it could fall and that would be safety issue.
