Following on the success of the C01U, Samson is proud to introduce the C03U, multi-pattern USB studio condenser microphone. Based on the extremely popular C03 studio condenser, the C03U delivers the same pristine audio quality and enhanced capabilities along with a high quality A/D converter and USB output.

The C03U features dual 19mm internal shock mounted diaphragms with switchable omni, supercardioid and figure-8 pickup patternss. Perfect for recording vocals or any acoustic instrument plus the selectable patterns make it ideal for a variety of specialized recording situations, like multiple vocalists, ambient room miking, and even a group of people around a conference table recording a Podcast.

The C03U works seamlessly on any computer running Mac OS X or Windows XP, and with most DAW software programs without having to install any extra software or drivers.

The Samson C03U will work without the SoftPre applet software using the standard drivers included in your computer's operating system. However if you would like added functionality of the Samson SoftPre applet (Input Level Meter, Volume control, High-pass filter and Phase Switch), you may download the appropriate one for your operating system at the SoftPre Page.

Windows Applet Note: The Windows SoftPre applet supports WDM and is designed to work with Windows XP (Service Pack 2). Without the Soft pre applet, Windows should recognize the mic and use the Windows mixer as a volume control if needed.

  • Dual Large 19mm Diaphragm Elements
