The Samson C01U lets you record studio quality audio directly into your computer¿s USB input and digital recording software! Some very clever Samson engineers managed to build the entire USB audio interface into the barrel of their best selling C01 Studio Condenser mic so high-quality vocals and acoustic instruments can be recorded directly into ANY USB equipped computer with just a USB cable (and Samson even supplies a 10ft USB cable with the mic). Mac driver software is a free download at Samson’s website. PCs recognize the mic with no additional driver necessary. The C01U USB Studio Condenser Mic is the first affordable studio condenser mic with a direct USB output. For the first time ever, musicians who record music on computers have a simple, affordable way to capture high-quality vocal and acoustic instrument performances. Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio condenser microphone that can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable. The C01U condenser microphone is based on our wildly successful C01. It features a 19mm internal shock mounted diaphragm with a cardioid pick up pattern ensuring pristine studio quality recordings. The C01U works perfectly on any computer, Mac or PC, and with any DAW software program. It immediately solves a huge problem for users of many laptops, many of which have no other input method for audio devices. Its price is also well within the price range of DAW hobbyists and beginners. It¿s a must for any musician on the road or in the project studio, but the C01U is going to offer solutions to more than just musicians. The mic opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio¿from Podcasters, journalists, students, and business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.The C01U USB Studio Condenser Mic is an affordable studio condenser mic with a USB interface, granting musicians who record music on computers a simple, affordable way to capture high-quality vocal and acoustic instrument performances.
