standards
Description
The AT4050 is a large-diaphragm side-address externally polarized
(DC bias) condenser microphone with three switchable polar patterns:
omnidirectional, cardioid, and gure-of-eight. It is designed to meet the
most critical acoustic requirements of professional recording, broadcast
and sound reinforcement.
The microphone requires 48V phantom power for operation.
The omnidirectional polar pattern is sensitive to sound coming from
all directions. Select the omni pattern to pick up several voices or
instruments on the same microphone, to diminish proximity effect, and
to preserve the locations ambient sound.
The cardioid polar pattern is more sensitive to sound originating directly
in front of the element, making it useful in controlling feedback, reducing
pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation between performers.
The gure-of-eight polar pattern is more sensitive to sound originating in
the front and back of the microphone, rejecting sounds from the sides.
It is often used in conjunction with advanced stereo miking techniques.
The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector.
The microphone is equipped with a switchable 10 dB pad and a switch
that permits choice of at response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral
80 Hz high-pass lter).
The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8449
shock mount provides superior isolation and permits mounting on any
microphone stand with
5
/
8
"-27 threads. A dust cover and a protective
carrying case are also included.
Operation and Maintenance
The AT4050 requires 48V phantom power for operation.
Output is low impedance (Lo-Z) balanced. The signal appears across Pins
2 and 3; Pin 1 is ground (shield). Output phase is “Pin 2 hot”— positive
acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pin 2.
To avoid phase cancellation and poor sound, all mic cables must be wired
consistently: Pin 1-to-Pin 1, etc.
A raised Audio-Technica emblem and the pattern-selection switch are on
the front of the microphone. Position this side of the microphone toward
the sound source.
The pattern-selection switch provides user-selection of omnidirectional,
cardioid, and gure-of-eight polar patterns. To select the omnidirectional
polar pattern, slide the switch to the circular polar pattern image. To
select the cardioid polar pattern, slide the switch to the heart-shaped
polar pattern image. To select the gure-of-eight pattern, slide the switch
to the gure-eight shaped polar pattern image.
An integral 80 Hz high-pass lter provides easy switching from a at
frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The roll-off position reduces the
microphone’s sensitivity to popping in close vocal use. It also reduces
the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as trafc, air-handling
systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations.
To engage the high-pass lter, slide the switch toward the “bent” line.
The microphone is also equipped with a switchable 10 dB pad that lowers
the microphone's sensitivity, thus providing higher SPL capability for
exible use with a wide range of users and system congurations. To
engage the 10 dB pad, slide the switch toward the -10 position.
In use, secure the cable to the mic stand or boom, leaving a slack loop at
the mic. This will ensure the most effective shock isolation and reduce
the possibility of accidentally pulling the microphone out of its mount.
Avoid leaving the microphone in the open sun or in areas where
temperatures exceed 110° F (43° C) for extended periods. Extremely high
humidity should also be avoided.
