    I purchased a used AT2020 USB, to set up a home studio. I record vocals and voice overs, and wanted a quality mic. I am totally impressed with the recordings I've made with this mic! Not only is it easy to set up and use, but the sound quality is excellent. Highly recommended!

    Mic is extremely fussy with Audacity on a Windows 7 laptop. Mic works with other applications on the computer, but is almost impossible to use on a Windows 7 machine with audacity. Three of us fiddled with it for hours yesterday and eventually got it to work with the software. Couldn't replicate it again today; after several frustrating hours, it still won't work with Audacity. OTOH, I downloaded Audacity onto a desktop machine with XP and it worked flawlessly.

    The box says the microphone works with Windows 7, but the manual included with the microphone makes no reference to the setup and use of the microphone on a Windows 7 machine.

    I am very disappointed.

              First off, I am not a professional in this field. In fact this is the most expensive microphone that I have ever used. However that means I went into this blind and I have a pretty different perspective in this field. This prouduct was very easy to use. I just plugged it in and it worked. I use the microphone for some YouTube videos and it was very simple to use in every program. Just to test, I I tried it out in the windows camera app as well as some apps like skype and google hangouts. In those programs you're not really going to want to buy a mic this expensive and you may want to go for something cheaper. In the end this is an easy and good sounding mic that is a great choice if your just starting out.

                  Well, let me start by sharing... I owned a Music Store in the late 70s early 80s- We sold Audio Technica products even back then... I'm a Professional Musician, Producer, Multi-Instrumentalist... One has to step back from the instantaneous, social media- bash, dash, "hecto-confusing", gratification/confusion World we now live in... By stepping back... remember what you paid for this mic... It's well worth the admission , the set up ( plug and play), and the ever hanging ways to records music and voice. This , considering it's price, really checks all of the boxes... Enjoy your time, enjoy your music and enjoy LIFE :-) Thx AT- good Mic at this price point!!!

                        I bought this mic, plugged it in and had an afternoon of low-quality, low-level recording issues in Audacity, Ableton Live and then Adobe Audition. A quick lookup on the web revealed that there are a multitude of issues with nearly all USB powered mics since the release of Windows 10. I also note that the mic has been discontinued (without explanation) by audo-technica.

                            This is a great product. I have a daily radio program and this mic is my favorite usb mic. I was using various Blue usb mics and had loads of white noise. None with the AT2020. No need for bulky secondary mixing gear. I replaced the small travel stand with a drum kick mic stand, which works great. I bought an after market foam pop filter. My sound quality rivals what I get on the radio studio pro E.V. voice mics. I also have the xlr version which had to have a mixer. When I travel I use the small stand or take my desk mic stand in two pieces. I do the initial edits in sound studio, an elegant little program that does effective linear editing, then I drop my edits into Logic X. I can get an amazing warm sound with no ad ons! There is no latency in the earphone jack as well.

                                    I use it for video game streaming, and it is perfect, crispy clear. Only bad part about it, is the stand, so small and tight for something heavy. I really love it!
