    ATR1300 Unidirectional Dynamic Vocal/Instrument Microphone 5 5 1 1
    Excellent microphone for the price I like this microphone, because of how clearly it picks up my voice compared to other PC oriented microphones that I've had. I'm not sure how well it compares to the more expensive models, but all I needed was something to start singing with. The quality far surpassed my expectations for it's price. It's build quality is also quite nice. I've fumbled it around quite a few times, and I haven't noticed any decrease in performance. This microphone is excellent at keeping background noises down if you keep it very close to your mouth. For use with a computer, I find that using a small pre-amplifier helps a lot. While it's not necessary it does help when you use it for casual talking or for recording instruments. Pretty much for when you don't need to kiss the microphone. While recording on computer without an amplifier, you must get very close to the microphone to get a good sound. I have to touch my lips to the microphone while talking quite loudly to get a good level of sound out of it. Later I can amplify the recording a bit to get a good volume, and the recording will still be very clean and crisp. I've tested it on a few amplified speaker cabinets, and it does work very well for that. Nice crisp and clean sound. October 6, 2013

    Microphone barely works

    I am trying to use my new ATR-1300 with my laptop computer. I am replacing an oplder mic that worked well on this computer (until my dog chewed the cord).
    I have to nearly yell into it to get it to pick up my voice.
    Is the mic defective? or could it be another issue?

    Please contact the Audio-Solutions Department at

    audio-solutions@atus.com

    Please provide the type of computer you are trying to connect to, as this information will be essential to informing you how to connect your microphone to your computer. Depending on which type of computer you have, you might need an additional USB adapter for proper connection. In either case, the microphone will need to be properly configured. Doing so is dependent upon what type of computer you are using, and what your Operating System is.

    Thanks!

    Answer: 
    The ATR1300 Microphone does not require any power for operation. If you are using the provided XLR to 1/4 inch plug cable to connect the microphone to your amplifier, make certain the input you are connecting it to is marked MICROPHONE, not marked INSTRUMENT or LINE. If the amplifier does not have a MICROPHONE input, you can connect it to the INSTRUMENT or the LINE input with the aid of an inline impedance matching transformer. Our CP8201 is such a transformer. Note that this transformer has a 3-pin female XLR input connector. You will need to use a balanced XLR female to XLR male microphone cable between the microphone and the transformer. The output connector on the transformer is a 1/4 plug and can be connected directly to the INSTRUMENT or LINE input jack on the amplifier.

    ATR1300

    I purchased this mic to use with my guitar amp. Though my guitar and iPod work great with the system, the mic did not work at all. I tried it on various other devises however it did not work on those either. Am I missing the power supply or is it just the cord it came with?

    Mic clamp and manual

    Hi,

    Will the mic clamp on the ATR1300 thread onto a On Stage DS7200 desk stand? The thread is 5/8"-27 and I'm assuming that is industry standard. Also, when I search for the manual nothing is found, why?

    Tnx,

    Mike

    Answers

    Answer: 
    Typically speaking, microphones do not come with directions/instructions. This is because they are considered the accessory to the input device. If your device is specified to have a microphone-input (not to be confused with a Headphone Output, or a Line-Level input), then it should have instructions on how to connect and configure a/an (external) microphone.

    The ATR1300 comes with an adjustable microphone stand clamp, that should be able to screw onto the On Stage DS7200, because both are 5/8 - 27 thread compatible.

    Thanks!

    ATR1300 in RF environment

    Hi,

    I'm planning on using the ATR1300 in an Amateur Radio environment. Does the ATR1300 have any shielding to prevent RF feedback?

    Answer: 
    Because the ATR1300 is a dynamic element type microphone and contains no active circuitry, radio frequency interference is not a concern.
