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.

I first began using the AT4050 back in 1997, and nearly 20 years later, it still has a prominent place in my mic locker, probably racking up more overall use than any other single microphone I have. Talk about reliability! Not only reliable, but it's a flexible mic as well - It has served me incredibly well on snare, drum overheads, room, cabs, vocals, acoustic guitars, and just about anything else you can think of. The 3 polar patterns, pad, and bass roll off add to its flexibility. It absolutely is the best all-around condenser mic that I have.
Sometimes, being good at many things can translate to being GREAT at nothing, but this is NOT the case with the 4050. When choosing mics for specific clients/situations, the 4050 regularly wins out as the best sounding mic, even when compared to more expensive mics.
This is great for dynamic vocals, unbelievably good when mic'ing the bottom of a snare, full and warm on acoustic guitars, and incredibly detailed as a drum overhead.
The frequency response of this mic is not hyped - it instead captures sound with a very honest quality. At the same time, you can run it through a good mic preamp and add a little "air" with a good EQ and it will hold its own with many of the expensive tube mics on the market.
If you are going into a session "blind" and can only take one mic with you, for me that mic is always that AT4050.
Pros Piano, Vocals, Ambience, Guitar Amp, Brass, Bass Amp, Voiceover/Dialog, Woodwinds, Harmonica, Strings, Guitar, Drums
Cons the only con is that i don't own more of them...

why does my microphone make clicking sounds as i record

when i record my vocals i hear clicking sounds like it clicks the more i start singing is there a way it can be removed or reduced?
could be any number of things... could actually be mouth noise - most people don't realize how much noise they make. It could also be that your preamp has a problem. Without a little more understanding of your signal path and an audio sample, its hard to really say...
