Samson CO1U is a studio condenser microphone featuring an integral USB Audio Interface. This makes Samson CO1U ideal for streaming audio direct to any computer based recording system, or DAW. C01U also provides a low cost solution for podcasting.
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.
C01U condenser microphone is based on Samson's highly popular C01 studio recording mic. CO1U 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.
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.
Windows Applet Note: The Samson CO1U will work without any software drivers. The Samson Applet when complete will carry with it a small software package that will have its own volume control and high pass filter. Without our Applet, Windows should recognize the mic and use the Windows mixer as a volume control if needed.
