    AT2035 Cardioid Condenser Microphone 5 5 3 3
    The Best Mic for it's Price! 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! November 23, 2013
    Excellent value!!! 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. May 11, 2012
    Of Highest Quality at A Great Price 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. October 27, 2011

    Getting the Microphone Hooked Up

    I recently purchased and AT2035 and a separate XLR cable. I was wondering if there was any way to connect the microphone to the computer without connecting it to a preamplifier?

    Answer: 
    That's not possible actually because the mic needs phantom power which can be found only in preamps and audio interfaces. Good luck.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. You will need some type of USB or Firewire audio interface to connect to the computer. Make sure that the interface provides phantom power for the microphone. There are just too many available to suggest one. An internet search should help you find one with the features and price point that you need.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. The AT2035 cannot be connected directly to any computer. It needs phantom power to operate. You will need a USB audio interface to connect it to a computer.

    Answer: 
    Hi there, I'm not sure with that but I don't think shock-mount would be a problem with the AT2035 because a custom shock-mount is included with the purchase of AT2035.

    Answer: 
    No actually. Because the mic requires phantom power to power up and normal PC don't have that. You will need an audio interface to inter-connect with the mic and computer.

    Answer: 
    Like all condenser element type microphones, the AT2035 requires power to operate. Specifically, phantom power ranging from as little as 12 to as much as 48 volts. Install an in-line phantom power supply between the microphone and your XLR Female to USB adapter cable. Use a balanced XLR Female to XLR Male type microphone cable to connect the microphone to the in-line phantom power supply (such as our AT8801 or equivalent), then use your XLR Female to USB adapter cable to connect the phantom power supply to the recorder.

    Answer: 
    Hi there, in order to connect the mic, you will need an audio interface. Look up the internet for a good audio interface that provides phantom power which most interface does. AT2035 is a condenser mic. Condenser mic's need phantom power. So simply said, you will have to hook the computer with the audio interface and the mic to the audio interface. Youtube has a lot of videos on this. Good luck. Hope I was helpful.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your inquiry. In order to connect this to a computer you would need some type of USB audio interface that provides phantom power. There are many available and start at around $100 and upward. You may want to consider the AT202OUSB+. It is ready to plug into the USB port of your computer.
