An Ideal Stereo Mic for Location Recording

If you want to capture quality stereo recordings on the go, look no further than the Audio Technica 2022. Dual condenser capsules can pivot to give you control over the width of your stereo recording, perfect for on-location recording sessions where needs can change at a moment's notice. And the AT2022 is ideal for recording in the field - the electret design gives you condenser mic quality without the need for phantom power, making the AT2022 easy to use with just about any recorder. And because the condenser capsules fold down for storage the AT2022 is easy to pack along with your recording device or camcorder.

A good stereo recording is deep and lifelike, and the AT2022 makes it as easy as setting up one microphone. Don't go through the hassle of setting up a pair of condenser mics, a pair of mic stands, and a recorder - just use one single mic, the AT2022, for great stereo recordings every time.

Audio-Technica AT2022 Features at a Glance:
  • Dual capsules pivot for greater control over your stereo width
  • Permanently charged capsule eliminates the need for phantom power, great for location recording
  • Stereo mini-jack output is compatible with virtually any video camera

Great in the field and auditorium

Awesome attached to my camcorder with incredible results. I shoot lots of marching band video and auditorium concerts. The frequency response really picks up bass drums on the low end and the cleanest symbols on the high end. Well balanced sound. I really wish they also had an XLR dual 3-pin version to plug into both XLR sockets on my my camera. This is incredible sound for the money.

Great mic for near-field voice recording

I'm doing some voiceover work for a documentary film and needed a mic to do some preliminary timing takes from home, sending them to the sound editor via the internet. The original plan was for me to travel to a recording studio to do the final recording, but the sound editor was so impressed with the audio quality from this mic that we scrapped the studio work. He was shocked when I told him what mic I used at home! I've also used it to record acoustic guitar, and the sound quality and stereo imaging are really amazing.

Output Format is Limiting

I bought this mic for use with a Sony handheld recorder, which has an 1/8" TRS input for stereo mics like this one. So as long as I'm using it for that, it's great, aside from the fact that the supplied cord is way too short to be practical (I'm planning on buying a 1/8" TRS female-male to extend the length). But when I wanted to use it with an audio interface, I had what I thought was a simple problem of going from a single XLR output to two XLR inputs (one for each mic capsule). But it's way more complicated than that: a simple splitter doesn't separate the signal, so you end up getting the same signal in both channels rather than a stereo signal, and flipping the phase doesn't help. On top of that the signal was very quiet, and you have to make sure you have switchable phantom power, because I was told over and over that if I send phantom power to it it will fry the mic and void the warantee. One more issue, and this one is for field recording. After I set the capsules to 90 or 120 degrees, putting the windscreen on without changing their angle is very tricky. It ends up being a very painstaking operation, and by the time you get it (although it's difficult to even know if you've done it right), the thing you were trying to record has probably already flown south for the winter. If I were to do it again, I'd bite the bullet and go for the Rode NT4, which has both dual XLR and stereo mini outputs, can accept phantom, and has fixed capsules.
