Q:I'd like to know if I can send mono summed to an xlr-m? Effectively, is like to use this with a straight xlr, not Y-cable, and have the signal serve as the side in an m/s array. Would I be better served with a figure-8 microphone?
A:Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that even though this microphone has a 3 pin XLR output connecter it is not wired the same as a standard XLR. Also note that this microphone has two elements aligned in an X/Y configuration. In a Mid side set up you use a cardioid center mic along with a figure of eight mic with two outputs (one inverted). Also, when summing two outputs, a proper summing configuration is necessary.
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.
