By PSW Staff • January 28, 2013 The new Audio-Technica AT2020USB+ cardioid condenser microphone Audio-Technica has introduced the new AT2020USB+ cardioid condenser microphone. Equipped with a USB output, it is designed for digitally capturing music or any acoustic audio source employing recording software. The AT2020USB+ features a built-in headphone jack with volume control that allows users to directly monitor their microphone signal in real time, and a built-in high-output internal headphone amplifier. The microphone also offers mix control that can blend the microphone’s signal with pre-recorded audio. The unit’s cardioid pickup pattern delivers excellent off-axis rejection, while its A/D converter, with a 16-bit 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate, ensures articulate sound reproduction. The microphone is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP and 2000, and Mac OS X. It is powered from a USB bus and includes a tripod desk stand, stand mount, USB cable and soft protective carrying pouch. The AT2020USB+ will be available February 2013 with a U.S. MSRP of $279.
