Original USB Studio Condenser Mic Reigns Supreme in Popularity and Versatility
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. It also comes with Cakewalk's Sonar LE digital audio workstation software. 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. Musicians, podcasters, educators, business people and many more applicable users can continue to rely on Samson to provide the highest standard of simple, affordable, and mobile USB studio condenser microphone technology: The C01U.
The C01U features a large 19mm shock mounted diaphragm.
The cardioid pickup pattern provides a smooth, flat frequency response.
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.
Great for Business and Academic Applications
With computer-based technology becoming more steadily incorporated into educational protocols, useful functions for the C01U among students, professors and administrators are also on the rise. So, whether you're teaching an online course, reviewing a past lecture or studying for a big exam across multiple computers, the C01U helps to make education a more accessible and interactive experience. Additionally, the C01U provides answers for those business professionals in need of revitalizing their corporate communications. Ideal for rich media on websites, in multimedia presentations, company meetings or corporate events, the C01U's features allow for easy, cost-effective recording of studio-quality audio clips to make your communications more impactful and your presentations come to life.
Loves to Accessorize
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.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I've noticed many, if not most, of the reviews complain about the stand that comes with the mike. I know it looks cheap but I've found it to be perfectly stable on my desktop so that is not a problem for me.
As far as the CakeWalk software that comes with it is concerned, I found it incomprehensible So I'll just continue to use the open source freeware Audacity. One warning, I routinely back up my hard drive (using Clonezilla) before installing new software because you never know. I'm glad I did this with CakeWalk because when I uninstalled it, it still left a bunch of files and directories on my machine. So, just to be safe, I used the backup to restore my machine to its pre-CakeWalk state.
