    Is that the one they are touting as a digital reference mic? Haven't tried it but it sure smells like their AT2020 mic to me.

    Based on it being hand held with a ball end windscreen and its limited frequency response and impedance rating, must be a dynamic. The AT2020 is a side address condenser, with 20-20k frequency response and most likely an impedance between 150-250 ohms.

    Clearly not the same mic then. AT has a mic out there that looks strikingly like the 2020 they are touting as a reference mic. I saw them walking through GC today.

    I've been curious about the 2020's.....I have a few different AT's and am very happy with all of them. I'd be curious to know what constitues a digital reference mic, since digital bandwidth goes down to about 5Hz :shock: Not much good as far as ears are concerend, but might be an interesting substitute for a high fiber diet..............

    I appreciate your response very much, but I wish I could understand it :lol: I really dont know much of the subject, but would that mean its an ok mic? a crap mic? All we would need out of it is some decent recording quality (im using a desk mic as of now so that should let you know what my standards are :wink: ) and an ok live sound as well.

    Thanks again!
