You know me, I'm always looking for the best deal on the best quality products, and this is dang near the best USB and XLR microphone you can get for such a low price. This is my review and test of the Audio Technica ATR2100 microphone. As always the link to the best price on Amazon for this mic will be in the description below. In the box you have the ATR2100 microphone, a mini tripod desk stand, a threaded stand clamp, a USB cable, and an XLR cable. Let's do a quick overview of the mic then we'll do a sound quality test comparison. This is a dynamic microphone that is a great option for people who want to do voiceovers, podcasts, or even singing. Its versatility and build quality are outstanding. It's made of a nice looking and durable silver metal. It can either be held in the hand or put in the clamp and attached to any standard mic stand. It is one of the few microphones that has both USB and XLR connections. This is super convenient because it can be plugged into any computer (Windows or Mac) via the USB connection and start recording right away. Then if you ever upgrade to a mixer or need to use it on any other analog equipment you can use the XLR connection and not have to purchase a new mic. Some of the key features include the built-in headphone jack for live audio monitoring, a low mass diaphragm providing excellent frequency response, and the cardioid pattern reduces pickup of unwanted sound in the background. All of these qualities result in a smooth high-quality sound recording. So far the audio in this video has been recorded with the ATR2100 mic so now I want to show you a comparison between the ATR2100 and my webcam's microphone. I'm now recording with my webcam's mic and you can probably already tell a huge difference in quality. Let's go ahead and switch back to the ATR2100. Now I'm back on the ATR2100, thank goodness. One thing I would recommend when you order the this mic is to also get this foam wind screen. It's only a couple dollars, and I'll leave a link to this in the description as well. This slips right onto the ATR2100 mic and will improve the recording quality by eliminating the pops from your P's and S's. so you can get a clean crisp audio recoding every time. So that is my review and test of the Audio Technica ATR2100 microphone. Obviously one of the best budget microphones, and arguably one of the best microphones overall. Again the link to the best price on Amazon will be in the description below. Make sure you give this video a thumbs up if it helped you out, and subscribe to my channel for more tech reviews. Thanks for watching. Keep having fun out there, and I'll talk to you later.

Audio Technica ATR2100 USB/XLR Microphone Review + Test
"Blown Away" by Kevin MacLeod (http://incompetech.com)
This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.
Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.
YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.
YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
