****** Page 1 ****** AT8022 X/Y Stereo Microphone Features Designed for video camera-mount use as well as for stereo field recording, interviews and home recording Compact, lightweight design is perfect for use with handheld digital recording devices Operates on battery or phantom power—for use with pro or consumer equipment Innovative coincident capsule configuration produces accurate stereo image in smaller housing Includes two cables: one balanced (two 3-pin XLRM-type connectors at output); one unbalanced (3.5 mm TRS at output) Switchable 80 Hz high-pass filter minimizes pickup of undesired low-frequency sounds Description The AT8022 is a fixed-charge condenser microphone with an X/Y stereo polar pattern. It is designed for broadcast, recording and field use. The microphone requires 11 V to 52V phantom power or a 1.5V AA battery for operation. A battery need not be in place for phantom power operation. The microphone offers an innovative coincident capsule configuration. This allows for a smaller housing while producing an X/Y stereo image with the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field. The microphone includes two cables: a 2 m (6.5′) balanced cable terminating in a 5-pin XLRF-type and two 3-pin XLRM-type connectors; a 0.6 m unbalanced cable terminating in a 5-pin XLRF-type and a 3.5 mm TRS connectors. The output of the microphone is a 5-pin XLRM-type connector. A switch permits choice of flat response or low-frequency roll-off (via integral 80 Hz 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 windscreen, a battery and a soft protective pouch are also included. Operation and Maintenance The AT8022 requires 11 V to 52V phantom power or a 1.5V AA battery for operation. A battery need not be in place for phantom power operation. To install the battery, unscrew the lower section of the microphone body to reveal the battery compartment. Insert a fresh 1.5V AA battery in the handle compartment ( “+” end up), then reassemble the microphone. Alkaline batteries are recommended for longest life. Remove the Oaudio-technica broadcast & production microphones battery during long-term storage. Battery switch must be on for battery operation. Turn off when not in use to preserve battery life. Battery switch has no effect on phantom power operation. Note: Use battery power only when connecting the AT8022 to an unbalanced input. Output for each stereo channel is low impedance (Lo-Z) balanced. The balanced signals appear across Pins 2 and 3 for the left channel, Pins 4 and 5 for the right channel. Pin 1 is ground (shield) for both channels. Output is ” Pins 2 and 4 hot”— positive acoustic pressure produces positive voltage at Pins 2 and 4. The end of the grille should be aimed at the sound source with the top of the microphone facing up (the top of the microphone is indicated by the left-right stereo image printed on the housing), so the stereo image matches the sound source. Locating the microphone nearer the sound source enhances the width of the stereo image, while decreasing room ambience. Conversely, as the mic position moves away from the sound source, a narrower left/right stereo image results and more of the “room sound” is noted. An integral 80 Hz high-pass filter provides easy switching from a flat frequency response to a low-end roll-off. The roll-off position reduces the pickup of low-frequency ambient noise (such as traffic, air-handling systems, etc.), room reverberation and mechanically coupled vibrations. To engage the high-pass filter, slide the switch toward to “bent” line. Avoid leaving the microphone in the open sun or in areas where temperatures exceed 1100 F (430 C) for extended periods. Extremely high humidity should also be avoided.
