    Great mic!! Nothing better under $200......

    By 

    from Milwaukee, WI

    Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

    I use this mic in a home recording studio for Rap & RnB.... Good clean sound...the 10 db pad helps to pull out alot of the background noise and the 80hz low end filter pullout the hum and rumble noise. Makes for less work in post production. Im sure there are higher end mics out there with better sound quality but they probably cost alot more.... In the $200 range this is def A-1.

          This is a step up from the AT2020 ... comes with a shockmount (that you have to use, since its the only mic mount that is delivered with it...no threads), a rolloff switch and a 10db pad. The shockmount is snug enough to allow many positions for the side address mic and the LC capsule is very good for the bargain price.

            Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

            I'm a rapper and producer from Malaysia.
            Previously I was using the M-Audio Nova condenser mic. I wouldn't say that It was bad but I wasn't satisfied with the quality I got from it. So when i decided to change to another mic, I came across the AT2035 and purchased it. I must say I was more than amazed! Such quality and clarity! If you're really familiar with EQ's and compression, there's no doubt that you can get the sound want from the AT2035. I'm more than satisfied! Amazing mic! Amazing price!

            I'll do another review post soon with link to the video of my song recorded through AT2035.

            Till then, great job Audio-Technica! Wonderful product!

              I have used many studio mics over the years and never come across a mic that costs so little and sounds so great! I have A-B'd it against my TLM-103 and much prefer the sound of the AT-2035 to the Neumann. Considering I purchased three of them for less than a third the cost of one TLM-103, I am thoroughly satisfied!!!

              You won't find a better deal.

                Comments about Audio-Technica AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone:

                About a year ago, while researching equipment for setting up my first small, home-recording studio, I settled on the AT2035, and this was simply because it provided the virtual flat, truly accurate response I was hoping to record, especially when attempting to capture the wonderful sound of my 1938 Gibson L00.

                Since I purchased two (for stereo recording), and since I've just now started using them, I've never been more satisfied with the professional quality of their construction as well as in their ease of use, especially when I add any other instrument (including voice# to the mix.

                If anyone was trying to do the same as me #especially with a limited budget), I know they would be fully content with the performance of the AT2035 - they are worth every penny.

                • Q:

                  My microphone (an AT-2035) doesn't appear to be working; I have it plugged in properly and have it in a safe place where it won't fall but it doesn't seem to want to work. It doesn't record a single noise and I have no idea what is the issue. I've tried restarting my recording software, unplugging and replugging but it doesn't work regardless.

                • Q:

                  Will this mic work with the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Recording Audio Interface? I know this has been asked before but i need to make sure. This interface features a high quality XLR 1/4" TRS Jack Combo, so i know it has the right connections. My concern is here: The phantom power requirements for the mic is 11-52V DC, 3.8 mA typical, but i see the Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Recording Audio Interface has a 48V Phantom power switch. So is this mic compatible? and if not, what usb interface is recommended?

                    A:

                    Yes, you may use the listed interface with the microphone. Use an XLR connection on both ends of the cable connecting the microphone and interface to travel the phantom power.

                    A:

                    I'm guessing you are using an audio interface to connect to your computer and the sample rate is not matching between the interface and the computer. You may troubleshoot the microphone on an analog source.
