One of the perks to producing audio in the digital era is accessibility. In other words, you have the freedom to record, produce, mix and distribute content in virtually any setting or space. And with DIY home setups picking up a ton of momentum for recording purposes, it’s essential to maximize your equipment to meet those resourceful standards.
Regardless of the directions that the recording process may go in as far as approachability is concerned, you’d be foolish to make audio magic happen without the right gear. The Samson Satellite USB Broadcast Microphone translates perfectly to the modern-day recording setup, with high-definition audio and computer connectivity in mind.

As a producer, I can tell you right now that being able to take any part of your rig on-the-go is vital with the way artists, musicians and engineers choose to work these days. While state-of-the-art studios and larger-than-life production houses are still quite prevalent for broadcast/music/advertising/film purposes, the actual practice of capturing audio and getting it to sound professional is no longer an exclusive (or mind-numbingly expensive) art.
Just on size alone, the Samson Satellite is unbelievably convenient. As alluded to above, it’s important to understand the significance of working remotely in our current production era. With varying schedules, improved work-from-home possibilities and simpler setups, content creators find themselves operating out of more than just one “mothership” recording space.
If you’re in charge of a podcast, for example, you may find yourself sitting around a table with a panel of esteemed guests (or just your siblings who kept begging to be on an episode). If this session is being done at your co-host’s crib across town, rest assured that this microphone will like a glove into most backpacks or bags for your travel purposes. Once on the table, the Samson Satellite can be easily connected to your laptop or smart phone via USB, offering plug-and-play efficiency. With 24-bit/96kHz audio, three selectable pickup patterns and a patented fold-back leg design, this microphone can go anywhere you need it to and deliver stellar-sounding audio.

Exceptionally Versatile

Whether you’re trying to capture an array of personalities as described above, record a one-on-one conversation or even just document yourself talking, you have polar options. Users will have the luxury of using and experimenting with three selectable pickup patterns: cardioid, bidirectional and omnidirectional. If I were sitting down next to you, ready to record and make some audio magic happen as a team, I’d suggest the following:

  • Cardioid setting: vocal performances, streaming, single hosts, Skype, video narration

  • Bidirectional setting: two person interviews, host and co-host for podcasts

  • Omnidirectional: conference calls, multi-person interviews, round-table podcasts

Incredible Sound

Two premium 16mm condenser capsules in the Satellite are designed to embrace vocal warmth and clarity with a smooth-as-butter frequency response. An internal shock-mount is crafted to minimize any outside noise, distracting vibrations and rumbling from table-bashing during political debates. With a flat response of 20Hz-20kHz, you’ll get the most from any vocal timbre in any capacity.
An issue I’ve personally had in the past with portable microphones, and even some high-grade audio interfaces, is latency. Nothing has made me want to pull my hair out in the past more than that frustrating delay rendering my takes unusable and off-time. The Samson Satellite all but ensures zero-latency direct monitoring from its 1/8” (3.5mm) headphone jack, so there won’t be delay between what you’re recording and what you’re hearing. This comes in handy particularly when laying down sweet lead vocals for your original music, which this mic is more than equipped to handle. Belt it, rockstar!
