“stereo jack to reach everyone”

No more time wasted setting up of a pair of condenser mics, 2 feet and a recorder with phantom power to make a professional stereo sound recording. The AT2022 simply connects to any recorder and achieves a perfect X/Y stereo sound recording.

“spatial realism”

Ideal for general stereo recording and field sound capture, the AT2022 reproduces the spatial impact and realism of a live sound field.

“Gentle filter slope”

With its gentle filter slope of 6 dB / Octave at 150 Hz, low frequencies are monitored very soft and natural way. An integral 150 Hz low-cut 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.


X/Y setup at 90° to 120°

Two unidirectional capsules positioned in an X / Y configuration provide user-selectable 90° to 120° stereo operation for narrow or wide pickup patterns.


Low-cut filter

Switchable Off / Flat / Low-cut positions for better isolation of unwanted noise.


Easy storage

The capsules can be placed at 180° during storage to prevent damage to the unidirectional elements.



Comes with an AT8405a stand clamp for 5/8"-27 threaded stands, a 1.5V AA battery, a fuzzy windscreen, a 0.5 m long jack to XLR (TRS) cable, and a soft protective pouch.
