C01U USB Studio Condenser Microphone
The C01U USB Studio Condenser Mic is the first affordable studio condenser mic with a USB interface.
First and still the best
This classic USB microphone bridges the gap between mid-level USB audio adapters and pro-line products that require additional drivers, special software, and/or excess cabling. The C01U is USB compatible with any Mac or PC, as well as most DAW software programs, including GarageBand. Its supreme ability to produce pristine audio recordings with ease and mobility, along with a desktop mic stand, mic clip, USB cable and carry pouch also included, makes the C01U a most valuable addition to any studio.
For musicians, the convergence of computer and audio technologies has established the home/mobile studio as an alternative to the professional recording facility. Whether you're touring the country or experimenting in your project studio, the C01U sets the standard for integrating your computer into your recording experience. Use the cardioid pickup pattern to record vocals or close-mic an acoustic instrument at a pro-level directly to your computer. The C01U is perfect for recording music on-the-go or in limited spaces, allowing all musicians tremendous freedom to create.
The evolution of podcasting has created a need for high-quality production capabilities that are also attainable by everyone. Satisfying these criteria, the C01U is a podcaster's dream come true. Given a simple USB connection straight into your computer, it provides your podcasts with unparalleled quality in audio recording. With the C01U affordable for all, the voices of web journalists are empowered to establish a real identity in the congested world of podcasting.
Samson offers a collection of pro-level accessories (all sold separately) that can be used to further enhance the recording experience of the C01U, including the PS01 microphone pop filter and the SP01 spider mount. The PS01's nylon mesh screen will reduce vocal popping and sibilance from affecting the performance of your C01U. It also comes equipped with a universal mic stand mounting bracket and a flexible metal gooseneck for convenient placement. Lastly, the SP01 provides the C01U with a reliable shockmount system to absorb unwanted vibrations and disturbances.
