      Comments about Audio-Technica ATR1100 Unidirectional Dynamic Handheld Microphone:

      I picked this up on impulse at a local pawn shop, like new in box. We wanted a mic for the kids to sing into and this was a cheap "karaoke" mic. It works fine for that. Very light for the kids, picks up their voices accurately.

      Down side is that you have to practically eat the mic to get good pick up, it's not very sensitive. Also very poppy. For a kid's karaoke mic that will see some abuse, this is an ok purchase. If you want to do anything else....well.....you get what you pay for.

      • Q:

        I can't get sound from this mic. I plug it into my pedal with the 1/4" adapter then to my amp and no sound comes through. Also tried straight into the amp and still nothing. Now I try it in my computer and no sound comes through. I have the mic switched to ON. Am I missing something? Does it need a battery somewhere?

        Is this compatible with macs?

        I am using a macbook pro. I have tried using both the built-in and a secondary USB audio port, and even rerouting to a virtual device. I cannot get any sound from this mic. Do I need a driver?

          Thank you for your inquiry. I assume that you are using some type of USB audio interface. The microphone cannot connect directly to a Mac.

        Using ATR 1100 with a MacBook Pro Laptop

        I've tried plugging the mic into the Line-In input on my Apple MacBook Pro and recording my voice (using Garage Band software), but it does not record my voice. I've checked all the settings on my Mac and they are all set to accept the "built-in Line-In" but still no sound. Can the microphone be used as such? Am I doing something wrong?

          Thank you for your inquiry. Please that Mac computer inputs are line level. A microphone cannot drive a line level input. One option is to use our ATR2USB interface and plug in via the USB port.

          Thank you for your inquiry. This will work with your computer providing that it has a microphone level input. Please note that some have line level inputs in which case you will need a preamp.

        Classroom Microphone

        I would like to use the ATR 1100 microphone (or any one you suggest) in a classroom. I have a Bose 2.1 stereo system connected to a laptop computer and i would like to use the mic with this system. There is a 3.5mm input port on the Bose system for MP3 players, etc. Do I need a phantom power source to make this all work?
        Asked on 3/5/2012 by AstroFan from Houston, TX, USA

        1 answer

        • A:

          Thank you for your inquiry. You do not need a phantom power source, but the mic will not work well on this system for 2 reasons. First, your input is stereo and the mic is mono. Secondly, this is a line level input which expects a very strong signal. The microphone puts out "mic level" which is a very weak output and will not drive the input. We do not make line level microphones, although there are third party folks you make preamps, but they can be costly.
