Q:My AT2022 came with an xlr to 1/8 in cable, and i've been using it as an external mic with my digital recorder (SONY PCM-M10). But I just got a new digital recorder (TASCAM DR-40) which is xlr capable (as well as 1/8 in), so I was wondering if I could plug my AT2022 into my digital recorder with an xlr cable instead...and if so would there be any advantage to doing that instead of the 1/8 in? (Like might it cut down on noise or anything like that?)
Q:I am wondering if this would be a good choice for drum overheads. Can you use it in one channel of a audio interface? If so, what kind of cable would be required and would it still be in stereo?
A:You may use a standard XLR cable.
Q:Phantom power and 3.5mm to XLR pair
A:Thank you for your inquiry. You would wire the cable like this.
A:After watching demo videos by Audio Technica, showing the mic in use with a DSLR, it seems that this mic is safe to use with a DSLR as they don't provide true phantom power.
Q:What stereo cable do I need for audio to get my PANASONIC DVCPRO HD P2 [ AG-HVX200APJ ] to be compatible w/ my AUDIO TECHNICA AT-2022?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. It appears that your camera has 2 xlr inputs. You will need to purchase or make a cable that has a 3 pin XLRF on the mic end out to 2 XLRM on the other. Please note that if you use such a cable that you cannot pass phantom power to the microphone.
Q:Why can't I record any sound with my AT 2022 when connected to my PANASONIC DVCPRO HD P2 AG HVX200-APJ
A:The AT2022 is a battery operated mic ONLY, which is listed in the Specification Sheet. If Phantom Power was sent to the microphone via an XLR - XLR connection, then the AT2022 is likely damaged. The microphone comes with an XLR to 3.5mm TRS cable for use with 1/8th stereo microphone inputs on a camera or other compatible device.
Q:Is it possible to use this mic with a normal xlr 1ft cable?
A:WARNING: The AT2022 is designed for battery operation only. Do NOT attempt to use when Phantom Power is present as this will permanently damage the microphone and void the warranty.
Q:Is there a cable that terminates XLR?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Yes, it terminates only in a 3.5mm trs.
A:I use this for video use on a Canon HD camcorder with a 1/8" trs input. The sound is fantastic: good signal strength, smooth frequency response, impressive lows, crystal clear high's, and no noticeable peaks or dips. I use it to record full spectrum audio e.g. symphony and opera.
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Your camera will need a 3.5mm stereo, "microphone level" input to work with this microphone.
Q:AT2022 - Extended cable length with standard xlr mic cable?
A:I actually use this mic along with a Canon HD camcorder with a 1/8" trs input and a 50 foot standard XLR cable for extension. Here is what I found related to EMI (and note, it took awhile to troubleshoot this issue).
A:Thank you for your inquiry. I probably would not extend this to 50 feet. This is an unbalanced connection and you will probably pick up EMI noise. You can try it, but my guess is it would be noisy.
