The AT4060 is a large-diaphragm side-address vacuum tube condenser
microphone with a cardioid polar pattern. It is designed for use in the
most demanding studio applications.
Each hand-selected tube is individually aged and tested, then employed
in a uniquely congured circuit for enhanced tube performance. Specially
tuned elements improve dynamic range and the ability to handle high SPLs
without sacricing high-frequency characteristics. Floating-construction
mounting of the elements provides isolation from noise and vibration.
The microphone operates in conjunction with the included power supply,
which has low-impedance output and a ground-lift switch.
The cardioid polar pattern of the microphone is more sensitive to sound
originating directly in front of the element, making it useful in controlling
feedback, reducing pickup of unwanted sounds and providing isolation
between performers.
The microphone includes a 10 m (32.8') output cable terminating in 6-pin
XLR-type connectors for use between microphone and power supply.
The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8447
shock mount provides superior isolation and permits mounting on any
microphone stand with
"-27 threads. A power supply, an AC power
cable, rack-mount adapters for power supply and a protective carrying
case are also included.
Operation & Maintenance
The AT4060 does not require phantom power but operates in conjunction
with the included power supply. The power supply has low-impedance
balanced output (3-pin XLRM-type connector) and a ground-lift switch,
which allows removal of hum caused by ground loops. The signal appears
across Pins 2 and 3; Pin 1 is ground (shield). Output phase is “Pin 2
hot” positive acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pin 2.
To avoid phase cancellation and poor sound, all mic cables must be wired
consistently: Pin 1-to-Pin 1, etc.
The microphone includes an AT8447 shock mount to provide mechanical
isolation and secure mounting. This effective shock mount ts
threaded stands. To use, slide the microphone into the shock mount
basket and tighten the thumb screw to secure the microphone.
To set up the microphone with the power supply:
1) Make certain the power supply is turned off.
2) Plug the included 6-pin cable (female connector) into the
microphone; then plug the other end of the cable (male connector)
into the power supply.
3) Connect the output of the power supply into your mixer or other
audio interface (using your 3-pin XLR-XLR cable — not included). Do
not turn on the phantom power.
4) Plug the included IEC power cord into an AC wall outlet.
5) Turn on the power supply.
Important: Always turn the power supply off when connecting or
disconnecting any cables.
As with any sophisticated vacuum tube equipment, the AT4060 requires
a period of warm-up time before use. Allow at least 15 minutes after
switching on the power supply for the unit’s electronics to stabilize.
A raised Audio-Technica emblem is on the front of the microphone.
Position this side of the microphone toward the sound source.
In use, secure the cable to the mic stand or boom, leaving a slack loop
at the mic. This will ensure the most effective shock isolation and reduce
the possibility of accidentally pulling the microphone out of its mount.
Avoid leaving the microphone in the open sun or in areas where
temperatures exceed 110° F (43° C) for extended periods. Extremely high
humidity should also be avoided.

This manual is encoded in PDF file format

The PDF (Portable Document Format) was created in the early 1990’s as a brand new way for computer users to share documents between each other, especially if one person has a PC and the other a Mac. The shared PDF will display exactly the same on both computers.

PDF was created by Adobe and is no maintained by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO). It is a very interactive format and can contain buttons, links, audio, video, form fields, business logic and even electronic signatures. It can capture fonts, images as well as document texts and can also format documents from many different programs.

Most PDF viewers or the software used to view the PDF is provided free of charge. There are many options available including Scribus, pdfTex, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator as well as Google Docs. The most popular however is Acrobat Reader DC.

Why we provide Audio-Technica Microphone manuals in PDF?:

  • · PDF’s are incredibly convenient and are easy to open and read by everyone, regardless of whether they have a PC or Mac.
  • · A PDF can be compressed into a file size that is easy to email while still maintaining the quality of the images.
  • · A PDF file can be made incredibly secure as you can set up passwords, digital signatures and even watermarks.
  • · A PDF allows you input many different types of content including images, animations, 3D models, hyperlinks and buttons.

PDF’s do have their drawbacks such as:

  • · PDF’s can often be difficult to edit or to extract information from as it’s original intention was to make the exchange of documents easier.
  • · There are different types of PDF’s, especially when searching or extracting information.

If you have a document that you would like to convert into a PDF, there are many sites online that will do the conversion for you for free and very quickly. The same is true if you are looking to convert from PDF format into a different format. This is often a much easier way to edit a PDF.
