The Se 2200a IIC is a large diaphragm cardioid condenser microphone. We have 2 of these microphones in studio storage and multiple throughout the production spaces around the department. This mic is versatile and can be used for vocals, acoustic guitar, hand percussion, electric guitar amps, etc.
Rotating Anechoic Voice
The Se2200a IIC mic was placed about 6 inches from the monitor. While the male voice file was being recorded, the mic was slowly rotated 360º. With this test we can hear the effects of the mic’s polar pattern on its off axis frequency response as well as its attenuation at different points around the mic.

For this sample I played trombone with the Se 2200a IIC placed directly on axis with the bell. There are various scales, and notes being played.
