Click here for details.</b></a><br/>Audio-Technica’s stringent quality and consistency standards set the AT2020 apart from other mics in its class. Its low-mass diaphragm is custom-engineered for extended frequency response and superior transient response. With rugged construction for durable performance, the microphone offers a wide dynamic range and handles high SPLs with ease. The AT2020: the new standard for affordable side-address studio condensers.
 

Cable selection

I recently purchased an AT2020 XLR mic and a Steinberg UR22 Audio interface. I also have an old Army Air Corps Dynamic mic. I just received my 6 ft. XLR 3 pin mic cable.
The cable fits both mics but does not fit the UR22. What cable will work for the mics and the UR22? I have seen the question asked about cable selection but only answers for what will NOT work. Would you please tell me what will work for my situation. I am a new voice over artist and am trying to set up a home studio. I use a pc and Sound Forge Audio Studio.
The Steinberg UR22 features an "XLR COMBO JACK". This means you can use a standard XLR connection, or a 1/4" connection.

The AT2020 (XLR Version) WILL interface with the Steinberg UR22. We are 100% positive of this. You will need to make certain 48v Phantom Power are enabled.

Please watch the following videos, which show that an XLR connector can be plugged into a UR22:

Computer will not recognize usb driver

My computer will not automatically recognize the driver for at2020 usb for windows 7. I bought it refurbished but i only plugged it in once to test it and it worked fine, but now it's not recognizing the usb at all the blue light is on so I know its getting power.
Since your item was purchased as a "refurb", it will be best to contact the dealer you purchased from, and inquire of an exchange.

However, to troubleshoot a USB Audio Device with Windows 7:

Important Notes:
• Any USB audio device will not work unless it is properly configured to your computer (i.e. Control Panel or System Preferences – your internal settings).
• A “Driver” is a component that an operating-system uses to provide I/O (in/out) services for interaction with an underlying device (in this case, communication with a USB Audio Device).
• USB Audio Drivers (in the form of a Codec) are provided by the computer’s operating-system. This driver is supplied with/by the operating system and/or the hardware (soundcard) manufacturer. This is why you can use nearly any USB Audio Device with nearly any computer.

To troubleshoot a USB Audio Device, please try all of the following:
1. Try a different USB port.
2. Try a different USB cable. If a different cable works, please let us know.
3. Try a different computer to verify. If it works on another computer, then you will have to contact your other computer’s manufacturer for tech support.
4. Make certain your USB Audio Device is configured using both the Operating System (OS) and the Program you are using. Please consult your Owner’s Manual for both.
5. Make certain your computer is fully up-to-date. This includes your OS, your drivers, and any subsequent programs/software.
6. Avoid USB 3.0 ports, USB Hubs, and USB inputs on computer monitors (excluding the iMac). All are known to have issues with USB Audio Devices.
7. For the AT2020USB, AT2020USB+, and ATR2500USB, please address the microphone from the "front", where the blue light is.
8. Also, if you are using Windows, please try Microsoft FixIt Support: http://support.microsoft.com/mats/h...

If you are missing the driver, you must contact technical support of the manufacturer of your computer and/or OS for additional troubleshooting options. Because the USB Audio Device should work on the USB Audio Driver supplied by the computer’s operating system, Audio-Technica does not manufacture or supply any drivers.

Audio-Technica does not sell directly to endusers, so we do not offer returns or exchanges.

If you observe ALL of the above, and your issue is not resolved, then you will have two options:
1. If within 30 Days of Purchase: Exchange through the dealer you purchased from (quickest option).
2. If over 30 Days from the date Purchase: Send the microphone to the ATUS Service Department for evaluation (www.audio-technica.com/service).

If you have any further questions or for any correspondence, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team and include your original question and this response, at:
audio-solutions@atus.com

The ATR2100-USB is designed to take you from the stage to the studio and beyond. This rugged handheld microphone offers two outputs, USB output for digital recording, and an XLR output that connects with a sound system’s conventional microphone input for use in live performance. The microphone plugs right into your computer’s USB port, and functions seamlessly with your favorite recording software. The ATR2100-USB also offers a quality analog-to-digital converter for excellent fidelity, and a headphone output with level control for monitoring. Its cardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sounds from the sides and rear. The microphone is ideal for live performance, podcasting, home studio recording, field recording, and voiceover use.
 

Is ATR2100 affected by phantom power when mic is turned off?

My mixer supplies phantom power to all inputs when phantom power is turned on. If I have an ATR2100 and ATR2005 plugged into the mixer while phantom power is on, BUT THE MICROPHONES ARE NOT TURNED ON, will this be OK?

I would NOT turn the microphones on until phantom power is turned off. However, I don't know if I would be damaging the microphones even if they are turned off while phantom power is on.
The ATR2100USB and AT2005USB are dynamic microphones, so Phantom Power should not effect them. HOWEVER, it is best to leave phantom power turned off if it is not being used.

UHF (655-680 MHz) active unity-gain antenna distribution system provides two "1-in, 4-out" RF channels; connects a pair of antennas to as many as four diversity receivers; cascade output provided as a directional coupler. AC pass-through allows daisy-chain AC hookup. Defeatable antenna power. Metal receiver chassis with reinforced mounting ears and rear rack mount capability. Includes detachable IEC power cable, IEC pass-through cable, ten RF cables, front-mount antenna cables and connectors, and four DC power cables. Mounts in a single 19" rack space.
 

Regarding the cascade feature, is it possible to cascade the signal from a ATW-A49 to AEW-DA660D through a AEW-DA550C or vice-versa?

I have 18 channels of AEW-5000 & AEW-4000 rigs(HH & BP) but am considering buying a few of the ATW-A49 antennas for use when I have larger rentals. Thank you in advance. -Lee
PLEASE REVIEW THE BELOW INFORMATION BOTH CAREFULLY AND THOROUGHLY!

NOTE: There are strict limitations to cascading antenna distributions. Contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio-Solutions Team for specific instructions related to antenna distribution for any given wireless setup.

- An ATW-DA49 can feed a DA550C, or a DA660D.

- An AEW-DA660D can only feed another DA660D or a DA49, but cannot feed an AEW-DA550C.

- An AEW-DA5500C can only feed another DA550C or a DA49, but cannot feed an AEW-DA660D.

PLEASE NOTE THE BELOW IMPORTANT SETUP INFORMATION:

- BECAUSE ANTENNA DISTRIBUTION IS SPECIALIZED, it is highly recommended that you contact the ATUS Audio Solutions Team regarding the setup regarding any advanced wireless setup (such as multi-system setup or antenna distribution), to ensure that you have the proper components, and that you are setting up your system properly. If the system is not setup properly, you will experience adverse results, as there are strict requirements for setting up any distribution or multiple wireless setup, no matter who the manufacturer of the wireless system is.

Therefore, to be certain that you are properly configuring your Antenna Distribution System, or if you have any further questions or correspondence, please contact the Audio-Technica United States (ATUS) Audio Solutions Team and include your original question and this response, at:

They come with three sizes of flexible earpieces and universal-fit foam tips for a custom fit, increased isolation and long-wearing listening comfort.
 

How do you fit and wear the headphones?

Where is the best place to attach the ambient mic?
We assume you are referencing an M2 or M3 IEM System with the AM3 Ambient Microphone? If so, the best place to position the ambient microphone is to be determined by the user. We advise experimenting until you get the sound you want.

Offering highly intelligible individual voice reproduction, the comfortable, lightweight PRO 8HEx is ideal for guitarists, keyboard players, drummers and others who need the use of their hands during performance. Its low-visibility headband and cushioned support pads provide a stable, comfortable fit. Designed for professional quality vocal pickup with hands-free operation, the PRO 8HEx features a pivot-mounted flexible mic boom that descends from either the left or right side.
 

How can I repair my PRO 8HEx Microphone

I think the diaphragm needs to be replaced. It sounds like I am talking through and old mega-phone.
To have your microphone repaired, since you are located in the United States, the product can only be repaired at the ATUS (Audio-Technica United States) Service Department. For information on how to obtain Service with ATUS, please visit www.audio-technica.com/service.

Meet the studio condenser that captures every nuance. With three switchable polar patterns, the large-diaphragm Audio-Technica AT4050 exhibits a remarkable combination of qualities: high-SPL capability with transparent and airy uppers/mids complemented by rich low-end qualities. Its dual large diaphragms are gold-vaporized and aged for consistent, outstanding performance. A precision-machined, nickel-plated brass acoustic element baffle provides rock-solid element stability and exceptional sensitivity.<br/><a href="http://www.audio-technica.com/cms//eb7732ab91615cca/index.html" target="_blank"><b>Check out audio samples and interior views of the AT4050 and other 40 Series side-address condensers</b></a><br/>Ideal for studio use and live sound productions with vocals, piano, strings, drum overheads, guitar amps, and more.<br/>Audio-Technica’s AT4050. For performance that legends are made of.<br/>
 

Is there a significant difference in sound quality between the AT4050/CM5 and the newer AT4050?

It's used for recording vocals to ProTools 11.
The AT4050 (current) is the same microphone as the AT4050/CM5 (discontinued). Some minor updates were made to meet lead free solder regulations (RoHS Compliant) and a different shockmount is currently used (current shockmount is the AT8449). Other than that, the microphones are the same.

A unique foldable swivel mechanism enables a custom fit and easy storage. The result is a pro-grade listening experience, in a compact and highly portable design.
 

Earpad compatibility

Hello. I am a recent purchaser of these fantastic headphones ATH-ES700ES. I love the sound quality of these, however I notice after an hour or two of use, my ears get sore from the smaller sized earpads. Is there a way I can get a larger earpad to change out?
Unfortunately, there is no larger earpad available for the ES700BK.
