Samson's downloadable SoftPre gives you extra software controls.
The C01U condenser microphone is based on Samson's wildly successful C01. It features a 19mm internal shockmounted diaphragm with a cardioid pickup 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. Record straight away, without the need for in/out boxes, expensive preamps--just a USB cable.
The C01U is ideal for most anyone who records audio--from podcasters, journalists and students to business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.
The Samson C03U is designed to be fully functional without installing additional drivers. But for those who would like a little something extra, Samson offers its downloadable SoftPre software applet, which gives you an Input Level Meter, Volume control, High-pass filter and Phase Switch, for Mac or Windows.
