Comprising Audio-Technica’s perennially popular AT2035 large diaphragm cardioid condenser mic and ATH-M40x studio monitor headphones, the Essential Studio Kit is completed by Audient’s outstanding iD4 Black USB audio interface.
The interface is the ideal partner for Audio-Technica’s versatile, natural-sounding AT2035, a cornerstone of the company’s studio-oriented 20 Series. Its high SPL handling, 80Hz high-pass filter and 10dB pad make it well suited to a wide variety of instrument and vocal applications, while the supplied custom shock-mount provides superior isolation from knocks – critical in the studio and on location.
The ATH-M40x headphones deliver excellent performance in both tracking and mixing situations and share the same sonic signature as Audio-Technica’s legendary M50x and M70x flagship headphones. A flat response curve ensures great tonal accuracy via 40mm drivers, with professional grade earcups guaranteeing comfort throughout long sessions.
Featuring a renowned Audient mic preamp, the 2-in/2-out iD4 Black boasts class-leading converter technology, JFET DI and the company’s ScrollControl virtual scroll wheel technology.
The Essential Studio Kit delivers a significant saving on the RRP of the individual components when bought separately – and also includes no less than £500 of Audient curated free plug-ins, production tools and training (available on registration of the iD4 Black on Audient’s ARC webpage), comprising Eventide’s Ultrachannel and Ultraverb plug-ins, Cubase LE and Cubasis LE2 (for iOS), ten free LANDR masters and two free courses and £20 voucher for online audio educators Producertech.
Audio-Technica marketing manager professional audio EMEA Tim Page said, “We’re delighted to have teamed up with Audient for the AT2035-Studio Essential Studio Kit. It’s great to be able to offer three highly respected products in the kit, ideal for a young producer’s first project studio set-up and as a compact mobile rig for hotel room demos, location recording and more.
“With the included software downloads, the AT2035-Studio offers everything needed to start recording – and the bundle’s two-year warranty also allows users real peace of mind.”
Andy Allen, Audient marketing manager added, “We are really pleased to have partnered with Audio Technica on the AT2035 Essential Studio Kit and believe the AT2035 mic and ATH-M40x are the perfect partners for iD4 Black in both quality and reputation. Alongside the creative tools provided through our software hub ARC, we’re confident producers and musicians will have everything they need to make a professional recording from the start.”
