Step up to Pro Sound! I’ll be brief. This Audio Technica 2020USB Plus is the bomb! I have a Blue Snowball I was using before I got this Audio Technica 2020USB Plus – and the Snowball is not even close, no comparison at all. Now, it’s a rolling paper weight. You wanna record direct to your computer USB style but you also want true studio sound? Don’t make a rash buy just because something’s cheaper – it may not be nearly as good. Save a couple of bucks, watch for this on sale here on Amazon, and buy this mic. If I worked at Guitar Center, I’d steer everyone wanting a USB mic to this unit. The stand isn’t great, so I use the stand I got with my Snowball – but I’m not reviewing the stand. This mic is the real deal. I’m a singer-songwriter. I’m not a producer. I’m not an engineer. I’m not a gear head – but I know a useful product and great sound when I hear it. I used an AT2020 on two of my tracks from The Cape Fear Sessions here on Amazon in a professional studio – Sweet Salvation and Rat On A Wheel. Now I’ve…

Great USB Microphone – Super Easy Set-up! Great microphone! People used to have so much trouble hearing me on Skype/video calls using my webcam. This mic have changed it completely – also sounds so much better in videos.I paired it with the AT8458 shockmount and Rode PSA1 stand, and the whole set-up works wonderfully. Also using the WindTech PopGard which works well, though in hindsight, could have just gone for a clip on filter.

Firmware is messed up but it still works great. Edit:I am editing this review to show my dissatisfaction with AT support. I have been using this mic successfully even though the USB driver in the mic died just a little after the first 40 days ( barely past the return window. Recently I tried using it with JamKazam. The problem is that JamKazam says that the rates don’t match for input and output. There is also no way to force it to work.The turn around time for getting the mic repaired is about 10 days after AT gets the mic. This does not include shipping. If you ship it UPS next days they repair it faster and ship it back Next Day, but by the time I pay for that kind of shipping I might as well put that money into a new mic like a Rode, or go back to using a Yeti. Even though the Yeti didn’t have the same quality sound, it was like a brick and went through 2 years of every day usage before the USB controller failed. (It’s also cheaper).Original Review:Why did I not give this 5 stars? There is only one…
