XY Clip

Sale price $17.50 Regular price $22.50

This clip holds two SDC (Small Diaphragm Condenser) microphones in an 90 degree XY mic'ing formation.

What is XY Micing? XY Mic'ing is a coincident stereo mic'ing technique that relies on directionality of audio source over time arrival differences, since the capsules are so close together. The benefits of XY mic'ing are that phase issues are negligible between the two microphones, and it has a very good mono compatibility - on top of that XY mic'ing provides a realistic image and sounds great!

Now you can get a perfect XY setup in a matter of seconds and save valuable floor real-estate by reducing the need to setup an additional mic stand. In addition, testing different positions for your XY mic setup becomes a breeze as the two microphones are joined as a single unit. No more fumbling with multiple mic stands just to audition a few positions for your XY mic'ing setup!

This clip will facilitate the XY arrangement of the following microphones:
