I am a singer/songwriter and I bought this mic for use with my Edirol R09 to put down some tracks for my album. The stereo seperation is very clean and well defined. Mic placement is critical to accomplish this. I have used this mic to record guitar and vocals simeltaneously, and I am very pleased with the results. If you don't want to spend money or time placing two mics to record in stereo, get this one you will not be disappointed. Another feature of this mic that makes it particularly applealing is the switch to switch between high and low and i believe stereo to mono.
My friend and I have used this on many live applications and this mic is amamzing! It is so clear it's unbelievable.
Worked great for live drum overhead (Had an SM57 on the snare and a Beyer M88 on the kick). Also dynamite for live concert recording (from the audience). Crisp highs, chesty lows, good stereo imaging.
I have used the AT822 for a little over a year now with a Canon GL-2 camcorder. I made orchestral recordings, and recordings of a large professional men's chorus on european and american tours with it. If you can place the mic to cover your subject within 120 degrees, it will do a professional job with great fidelity. It requires AT's camera shoe shock mount to eliminate handling noise if camera mounted. The only negative comment I must make is that it comes with two cables running from the single XLR connector at the mic terminating in 1/4" unbalanced low impedance connectors, or one small one terminating in a single 1/8" stereo plug. This means that long runs through extended cable to the camcorder risk picking up noise, or will need line transformers which result in less than optimum gain when channeled through some mixers. I have,however (knowing better), successfully experimented with 4 - 20' stereo headphone extention cables (with 1/8" connectors) connected together to place the mic 80' away. It worked surprisinglly well. Increasing the number to 5 cables injected a local radio station signal. The AT825, costing over $*** more, has XLR connectors, but will not match camcorder inputs. Nady has a new mic which seems to be an attempt to compete with the AT822 at half the price. I would be surprised if it equals the AT.I have participated with the choral group in making several professional recordings including one Grammy nominated CD, and have been privileged to use some very fine equipment. Yet, I am making some CDs and DVDs with the 16 bit audio I get from performances recorded with the GL-2 and the AT822. The quality of sound is phenomenal.
