I feel in love with this microphone while listening to the Duet Sessions from Tony Bennett where most of my music heroes were using this microphone. Dae Bennett gave an interview to Sound on Sound on Recording Tony Bennett's'One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)'. Here is an excerpt about the mic. My vocal setup for the recordings with the quartet consisted of two Audio-Technica AT4047 mics, going into a Neve 1073 and then a [Urei] 1176.
I normally like to use the classic Neumann U47 for recording vocals, but they would have picked up too much of the room. The AT4047s have a tighter cardioid pattern and also sound very good. This is was one of the main reasons why I chose this mic. It is great on untreated rooms and places that have a bit of white/ambient noise.Perfect for a home studio! The rich, warm sound takes you back to the classic F. But there s nothing remotely old-fashioned about the technology behind that vintage sound.
