Onboard Digital Processing

Customise the AT2020USB-XP to you and your environment – no software required. Select between three levels of noise reduction to account for any unwanted room noise and activate the automatic gain control to maintain consistent output levels – no matter how loud or soft your voice.

Enduring Legacy of Sound

The AT2020USB-XP exemplifies the innovation of the 20 Series – the microphone line that made professional-quality sound accessible to all creators.

Simple to Silence

A simple touch of the capacitive mute button immediately silences the microphone. The mic’s LED ring changes from blue to red indicating that the audio is muted.

24-bit/192 kHz Sampling Rate

The microphone’s advanced analogue-to-digital converter supports multiple sampling rates, with recording resolution up to 24-bit/192 kHz for extremely clear, natural sound reproduction.

Zero Latency Monitoring

A headphone jack with volume control allows you to monitor audio directly from the microphone, while the mix control allows you to blend your microphone signal with computer audio.

Included Accessories

The included desk stand provides a stable base to securely set up the microphone on any flat surface while the custom pop filter provides added protection against plosives.
