Question about Audio Technica Audio-Technica AT4040 Professional Microphone

1 Answer

Microphone distorted i have an at4040 hooked up to a firewire solo, and i'm using pro tools. i have recorded with this set up all the time.but yesterday i started to speak into the microphone and my voice was all distorted and mest up. i have never dropped the mic and i always had the dust cover on it. and its never left my studio. so i thought it might be the cable so i grabbed my voltimeter and checked the xlr cable and it checked out fine. my audio interface outputs to my speakers and headset fine.....so i'm thinkin that not the culprit......so my question is do u think its the mic? and how much am i lookin at to get it repaird?

You are over driving the recorder because the input level is too high. There should be a volume or gain control on the recorder to cut down on the level.

Sounds like the device is not set as the default.

Step 1. Right click on the Speaker icon in your taskbar (lower right of your Windows Desktop)

Step 2. Click Properties and then find Playback devices and make sure that your device is selected.

While recording through firewire solo cannot hear input but hear


  1. What version of Audition?
  2. What version of Windows - or other OS?
  3. Edit View and/or Multi-Track view issue?
  4. Are you recording in Multitrack view, then listening in Edit view?  Each has its own hardware setup..
My best guess is that one of these thigns are true:
  1. You have not enabled monitoring
  2. In multitrack view, I believe you have to send each signal to the master, and then enable monitoring for the Master... but I can't remember for sure.

Taking recordings from mixing desk


As the Fastrack can only receive one audio signal at a time you would have to record each track seperatly into Pro Tools.

I'm guessing your mixer is a multitrack recorder.

Solo track 1 on the multitracker and playback from there into the Fastrack, with track 1 on Pro Tools set to record. Repeat this for each or your tracks on the multitracker.

When you've finished you'll need to align all the tracks in Pro Tools so they all playback in time with each other.

Low Freq Pulsing on Audio Technica AT4040 Microphone


That is a condenser mic and I bet the others you are trying are dynamic. Does your unit supply phantom power? It should. Or look for a power injector as a separate box.
