In this video for Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey shows us around the new AT2035 Studio bundle from Audio Technica and Audient. This package features everything you need to get working on your next hit song. Just add creativity.
What's In The Box?
The AT2035 Studio is pretty music everything you need to start recording your music. The hub of the system is the stunning iD4 USB audio interface from Audient. James reviewed the iD4 back just over a year ago back in September 2016 and to date, it is one of his favourite small form factor audio interfaces. You can watch his video review of the iD4 in the video below.
To capture all your lovely audio the AT2035 Studio includes the Audio Technica 2035 large diaphragm fixed pattern condenser microphone. The 2035 was designed with the home and project studio in mind, but it is just as at home live on stage. The AT2035 delivers exceptional detail and low noise. With its extended low-frequency response, the AT2035 provides rich, full sound reproduction and handles extremely high sound pressure levels with ease. It even comes with a shock mount and badded bad for safe keeping.
The final hardware component of the package is the Audio Technica ATHM40x Headphones. The M-Series ATH-M40x professional monitor headphones are tuned flat for incredibly accurate audio monitoring across an extended frequency range. The studio experience is enhanced with superior sound isolation and swiveling earcups for convenient one-ear monitoring. Engineered with pro-grade materials and robust construction, the M40x excels in professional studio tracking and mixing, as well as DJ monitoring.
The AT2035 Studio also includes all the cables and extra bits that get forgotten about when we buy (or someone else buys) our first recording gear. The only thing missing in my book would be a basic pop shied but you can pick these up quite cheap or even make one out of a pair of tights (NEW) and a wire coat-hanger.
The final jewels in this box set are access to Audient's ACR Creative Hub to get you loads of free software and plug-ins as well as training and free Landr masters. Once registered you will also get access to the Audient Tutorial Hub with hundreds of hours of free tutorials from top-flight industry professionals to help you improve on your recording, mixing and mastering.
Just In Time For Christmas
It's no surprise that the AT2035 Studio is appearing just about now in stores as this could be the best Christmas gift you give any audio professional and with a street price of around £300 UK Pounds you are going to have a couple of quid left over for drinks on Boxing Day as well.
