The Samson C01U is essential for any level of musician, but its versatility can be applied to create audio solutions for anyone who records audio, particularly podcasters, educators, and business professionals

Samson presents the USB studio condenser microphone that started it all: The C01U.
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 moblity, along with a desktop mic stand, mic clip, USB cable and carry pouch also included, makes the C01U a most valueable addition to any studio.

Once drawing inspiration from the wildly successful C01 unit, the C01U is now the foundation and best-seller of Samson’s extensive line of USB microphones. The C01U features a large 19mm shockmounted diaphragm efficient in reproducing both low- and high-volume sounds with equal articulation. The cardioid pickup pattern provides a smooth, flat frequency response. Capturing audio at 16-bit resolution up to a 48kHz sampling rate, the C01U offers the accuracy you need to be sure that what you hear is what you get.

The C01U is essential for any level of musician, but its versatility can be applied to create audio solutions for anyone who records audio, particularly podcasters, educators, and business professionals.

Music Manager
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.

Podcaster’s Producer
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.

Academic Advisor
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. In addition to podcasting, the C01U can expand the educational applications for Skype, VoIP, screen capture software like Camtasia Studio and voice recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking. These applications, all of which can be used to teach, study or catalogue academic materials, are made easy with the superior degree of audio recording delivered by the C01U. 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.

Business Partner
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 impacting and your presentations come to life. The mobility factor surrounding the C01U is also attractive to business professionals, as it can travel with you as easy as a laptop or briefcase to that next meeting.

      Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Microphone (with Cakewalk Recording Software):

      I use the Samson CO1U with Adobe Audition as a producer/engineer for mainly Hip Hop/R&B and i must say that if you are someone who is starting out with limited money, the Samson CO1U is the way to go! The quality is good if not better for the price. When put with Audition (and my good mixing/mastering skill) it rivals DAW's costing hundreds of dollars more...my tracks sound like Pro Tools! Also it is great for traveling, you can easily put the mic in your gig bag and set up in no more than 5 minutes!! Awesome product....

        Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Microphone (with Cakewalk Recording Software):

        This microphone has been great to me. I've been using it for 4 years and still working LIKE NEW. Laptop friendly, so If you want to record outdoors, this is the right microphone for you! If you are a singer, only record MONO through the right channel, then adjust the volume by the PC/MAC. Perfect for Acoustic Guitars and Vocals! A MUST if money is an issue!

        Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Microphone (with Cakewalk Recording Software):

        For what I use it for, just singing karaoke on the computer, it does a great job. My voice is a low baritone, so not sure what it would be like under a higher pitch. For the price it is a great little mic.

        Comments about Samson C01U USB Condenser Microphone (with Cakewalk Recording Software):

        It was great when I first started using it due to the first few songs I was recording were wery low and mellow. But when I tryed to record strong, high vocals, it distorted the recording. This is a real problem for me becuase it sounded terrible. It makes acoustic guitar sound pretty good though.
