The AT4050ST is a side-address condenser with cardioid and figure-of-eight elements configured in a Mid-Side arrangement.

This innovative stereo condenser allows sound recordists the choice of selecting a left-right stereo output or choosing discrete Mid-Side signals for later manipulation, a remarkable flexibility.

The microphone's dual-diaphragm capsules maintain precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range.

Its transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion.

Features:
*Innovative side-address Mid-Side stereo microphone engineered for professional recording, broadcast and sound reinforcement
*Independent cardioid and figure-of-eight condenser elements
*Switch selection of Mid-Side mode and two internally matrixed stereo modes
*Dual-diaphragm capsules maintain precise polar pattern definition across the full frequency range of the microphone
*Transformerless circuitry virtually eliminates low-frequency distortion and provides superior correlation of high-speed transients
*The 2-micron-thick, vapor-deposited gold diaphragms undergo a five-step aging process so that the optimum characteristics remain constant over years of use
*Open acoustical environment of the symmetrical housing assembly minimizes unwanted internal reflections
*Integral 80 Hz high-pass filter switch and 10 dB pad switch
*State-of-the-art design and manufacturing techniques ensure compliance with A-T's stringent consistency and reliability standards
*Custom shock mount provides superior isolation

Magazine Reviews
Sound on Sound, November 2010 "Building upon the sonic success of the standard AT4050, the new ST version expands its capabilities radically, with only modest performance compromises, to deliver an impressively detailed stereo sound‑stage from a single side‑address microphone body." http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/nov10/articles/at4050.htm Recording Mag, May 2012 "It's hard to argue with the sound of a modern legend, and now you can have that sound in stereo -- which is just awesome, and for slightly less than the cost of two mono 4050s." https://www.recordingmag.com/productreviews/2012/05/63.html
