    C01U - USB Condenser Microphone

    The C01U USB Studio Condenser Mic is the first affordable studio condenser mic with a USB interface.

    For the first time ever, musicians who record music on computers have a simple, affordable way to capture high-quality vocal and acoustic instrument performances.

    Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio condenser microphone that can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable.

    The C01U condenser microphone is based on our wildly successful C01. It features a 19mm internal shock mounted diaphragm with a cardioid pick up 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.

    It’s a must for any musician on the road or in the project studio, but the C01U is going to offer solutions to more than just musicians. The mic opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio—from Podcasters, journalists, students, and business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.

    Be sure to check the FAQs for the latest info on how to integrate the C01U with your recording software.

    FAV, just a couple of posts above yours is a link to a site that reviews the mic. If you click on that link, you will find a review. It explains what the mic is. It also has links to other websites that feature the mic.

    Otherwise, there's always Google.

    Approximate street price for this mic is around 80 USD. My guess is that this will be most likely retailed locally at approximately P4K-5K should Audiophile carry this model. If this is made in China, chances are we'll be seeing this soon in local stores.

    Where can this mic be purchased?

    Has anybody tried this already?

    What are other good brands/models of mics?

    This particular model is not stereo.

    Re: *** SAMSON Studio Mic ***

    Tarkuz, I've been looking for information if it's possible to connect 2 or more C01U mics at the same time to the computer and record simultaneously. Would you happen to have any information or source about this? Thanks!

    Hi, tarkus! Is this still available? I mean, are there stocks available locally. I happened to be in the US now. I'm thinking whether to buy it in the Philippines or here in the USA. Philippine price is cheaper, by the way.
