Comments about Audio-Technica AT2020USB Side-Address Cardioid Condenser USB Microphone:
So this is the same great AT-2020 Condenser microphone with a built-in AD converter for USB recording. GREAT option for recording yourself playing through an amp at home or in the studio with a computer. It's a big big step up from any built in microphone on a camera or phone, and the price is not bad. You can often find this on sale for the same price as it's non-USB version.
It features its own volume control as well as a headphone jack and built in headphone amp with its own volume control, allowing for monitoring of the signal outside of the computer you're recording on.
Sound wise this is a very nice mic. Clean, articulate, and sensitive. It's sturdily built and feels substantial in your hand. I use it to record and compare various amps, tubes, guitars, pickups.
There's only one teeny tiny negative and that's that the tripod is a bit off-center and easily tips over if you don't arrange to have one leg sticking out directly under the microphone. Not even worth taking off a star though as it's rarely a real problem.
