About MXL 4000

The MXL 4000 Multi-Pattern is a condenser microphone designed around a Class-A. Multiple (3) polar patterns in the microphone make it versatile and work on various conditions in various ways after some adjustments. The MXL 4000 microphone is widely used for pop, rapping, hip-hop recordings, and acoustics as well. You can use this microphone for voiceover instruments, podcasting, interviews, and much more.

The MXL 4000 mid has a 25mm large-diaphragm capsule which makes the warmth and richness in the sound with nice clarity. The sound is a bit boosted in the microphones that’s why it is best for hip hop, rapping, and instruments: piano, guitar, and bass guitar, etc. If you are singing or recording vocals and want to give your voice some natural warmth and thickness you need to use a good preamp to boost the low ends.

The MXL 4000 mic has a frequency response of 20Hz to 20KHz which is very good for any condenser microphone. It has a max SPL of 130dB which is perfect to handle any instrumental. For the connectivity of the microphone, you need a standard XLR microphone cable and to require a phantom power supply of 48v.
