I bought a Rode NT4 last year, encouraged by a well known blogger, for use in improving interviews - one mic each for the subject, and for me, but can see now why my success has been limited!
Does it work well as an on camera mic?

"HOWEVER: I was thinking that in a pinch, one could use the AT 822 Stereo for an interview if you had two people placed at the correct L/R angles to the mic. One person feeding mostly into chan 1 and the other mostly into chan 2, setting the pan appropriately of coarse, also allowing for some leeway in post."

Jonathan,

Test your surmises into the theoretical as you will. At some point, sooner than later, you'll find that you also need a theoretical van and theoretical production assistant to carry all of your theoretical possibilities.

The practical world is different. When I'm hired to do sound, I don't show up with every piece of gear I own. I ask what the job is, what the circumstances are and bring what's needed with a little backup.

Carry on!

Hi Ty,

Theoretically clients should be willing to pay to have things done right. I know that having the right crew would be life in the production world at it's most awesome.

BTW- I just ordered your book "Audio Bootcamp Field Guide". I look forward to digging into that once I finish and review Jay Rose's book.

Thanks.

Jonathan
