What is a Cardioid Condenser?

A Condenser microphone such as the AT2020 contains a delicate diaphragm that captures the vibrations of the sounds you’re wanting to record. This diaphragm is so delicate that it requires powering through the XLR cable*, ensuring every aspect of your instrument or voice is captured in crisp detail.

Audio-Technica cardioid microphones have heart — figuratively and literally — thanks to the shape of the sound capture area. Cardioid microphones capture what’s in front of them in a rough heart shape, from the pinnacle of sound capture at the front of the microphone to the graduated capture off to the sides. This cardioid pattern improves isolation of any desired sound source for rich and accurate recording.

Japanese Engineering with Creators in Mind

Developed from over half a century of Japanese audio engineering, the AT2020 has been created to bring professional-level audio capturing to anyone wanting to explore the world of sound recording. Whether it’s voice-overs, podcasting, singing vocals or live instrument recording, the A2020 is the critically acclaimed and iconic cardioid condenser designed around you — and your budget.

Part of the Family

The AT2020 has a sibling with the AT2020-USB, which provides out of the box PC/Mac plug and play audio recording — providing you have 48V of phantom power, this may be a great option if you’re wanting to record directly to digital. While the AT2020 does not have USB, it features an XLR connector, making it the perfect match for most audio and sound pickup devices compatible with this type of adaptor.

The AT2020 cardioid condenser microphone is also part of the 20 series family of microphones. These microphones have all been designed to bring professional sound recording to creators, professionals and home-users alike.
