Stow, OH - Mar 15, 2011 - Audio-Technica is now shipping its AT2022 X/Y stereo condenser microphone. A dual-element condenser microphone designed for stereo recording, the AT2022 features two unidirectional condenser capsules in an X/Y configuration pivot to allow for 90-degree (narrow) or 120-degree (wide) stereo operation. The capsules also fold flat for storage and transportation. It is designed for general stereo recording, as well as field sound capture.
The AT2022 includes a 1.6' (0.5m) cable terminating in a three-pin XLRF-type and a 1/8" (3.5mm) connector. The output of the microphone is a 3-pin XLRM-type connector. The microphone requires a 1.5V AA battery for operation.
A switch permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80Hz high-pass filter) to help control undesired ambient noise. The microphone is enclosed in a rugged housing. The included AT8405a stand clamp permits mounting on any microphone stand with 5/8"-27 threads. A fuzzy windscreen, battery and soft protective pouch are also included.
