    The AT2020USB-XP is designed to give podcasters, streamers, and other creators the award-winning sound of the original AT2020 with plug-and-play USB-C operation and powerful digital processing.

    The microphone’s directional pickup (cardioid) keeps the focus on your voice or other chosen sound source, while its high-resolution A/D converter (up to 24-bit/192 kHz sampling rate) ensures extremely clear, natural sound reproduction. The sound may also be digitally controlled by using onboard noise reduction and automatic gain control settings. Both functions are selectable with switches on the base of the microphone, and LEDs on the body clearly indicate the status of each function.

    In addition, the AT2020USB-XP includes a built-in headphone jack with volume control to let you directly monitor the microphone signal with no delay. It also offers a mix control to let you blend the microphone’s audio with audio from your computer, and has a silent touch-sensitive mute button to quickly and easily mute audio at the microphone.

    The microphone comes with a custom desk stand and AT8175 clip-on pop filter, ⅜"-16 to ⅝"-27 threaded adapter, and 2.0m USB-C to USB-A cable with a USB-A to USB-C adapter.
