4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 4 Mar. 2011

This review is from: Samson G Track GM1U USB Condenser Microphone with Cakewalk Sonar (Electronics)
I'm having great results with this microphone so far. It's perfect for anyone who is setting up a home studio but does not have the budget or space for all the pro equipment. Not only is it a mic but it works as an audio interface so it really is a plug in and go piece of kit. Very simple to grasp. The audio interface feature also means you can plug in compatible instruments directly... things like electric guitars. You'll even get all the cables you need for this included in the box.

I use the mic with Logic Express and get very professional sounding results. I use mostly for vocals but have also plugged my electroacoustic guitar into the instrument line with promising results. It's just as sensitive as any compressor mic... in that it will annoyingly pick up random sounds such as licking your lips. Although, a plus for me is that it doesn't really pick up much ambience from outside. I also record in the same room as my computer and that doesn't seem to notice on my tracks either... which is good!

Pretty much if you're looking for professional sounding vocals but don't have much need to invest in an interface you will get great results from this piece of equipment. I'm a singer/songwriter that works primarily with a midi keyboard and very few live instruments and it's perfect for that. So particularly great for those making popular music. I would definitely recommend getting the shock mount to go with it though (and a pop shield if you don't already have one). Obviously, for the better results decent recording software is a must...
