In this video review for Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey takes a look at the new Audio Technica 5045 single rectangular diaphragm condenser microphone.
As part of an event that Audio Technica held to launch the new AT5047, James was invited to the legendary Real World studios to see and hear the mics in action. Much of the musical footage comes from this event.
AT5045 is Audio-Technica’s premier condenser instrument microphone, offering the performance of a large-diaphragm, side-address condenser in a convenient "stick-type" body.
Despite the space limitations imposed by its type of housing, the AT5045 has Audio-Technica’s largest single diaphragm. The instrument microphone’s circuitry has been cut down to the essentials, allowing the AT5045 to achieve an unprecedented dynamic range. The AT5045 is available as a single mic or as a stereo pair in their own flight-case.
