Comments about Audio-Technica ATR2100-USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone:
- Microphone has 3.5mm jack allowing you to monitor with 0 latency - great function
- Design is sleek, simple and made of metal, feels heavy and of quality
- Sound quality is great, the range may not be that wide (50-15 000 Hz) but is ample at an amateur / hobby level
- Overall great value, comes with a stand, zero latency is great function, price is good.
- Some cheapo carrying pouch / case would have been nice
- Have heard of quality issues with the USB / Headphone jack such as breaking. Could be resolved if you minimise the number of unnecessary insertion / removal of USB / headphone cable
- Amateur / hobby singers recording covers
- Podcaster / Youtube / Voice over
- Value for money
- Upgrade from cheapo PC mic / inbuilt microphones

Q:I am using this mic plugged into a Mac using Garageband. When I have headphones plugged into the mic, and the mic plugged into the Mac via USB, I can barely hear my voice in the headphones. The volume is turned all the way up in the mic and on the Mac.
A:Thank you for your inquiry.
Q:The recording level is very low... how do I fix this?
A:Make certain that your microphone cables are XLR female to XLR male type cables, so you are connecting the mics to the MIC level XLR section of the XLR /1/4" combo jacks on your interface. The level WILL be very low if you are using XLR female to 1/4" male type cables and connecting the mics to the 1/4" LINE level section of the combo jacks. This is because the 1/4" section of the jack is expecting a LINE level signal coming into it. A microphone signal is considerably lower in level.

Q:Is my Audio-Technica ATR2100 usb compatible with a video camera?
A:There are 3.5 mm to USB adapters (from source to detination), but I am not aware of USB to 3.5 mm adapters. Such an adapter would have to change the signal from a digital (USB) type signal to an analog (3.5 mm) type signal, and it would have to supply 5 volts DC bus power to the microphone. It is more feasible to go from the XLR output connector on the microphone to the 3.5 mm Microphone jack on a camera. This type jack today is typically a STEREO jack. With the appropritate XLR to 3.5 mm adapter cable you can get microphone audio (which is mono) on both the left and right sides of a stereo jack. Following is a link to such a cable.
Q:Does this output simultaneously to USB (computer) & XLR (mixer), thus allowing recording on two devices?
A:Yes it does.
Q:Is ATR2100 affected by phantom power when mic is turned off?
A:The ATR2100USB and AT2005USB are dynamic microphones, so Phantom Power should not effect them. HOWEVER, it is best to leave phantom power turned off if it is not being used.
Q:Mic not found
