Samson changed the way the world records audio with the C01U USB Studio Condenser microphone; the first studio quality condenser microphone with a USB output for seamless direct-to computer recording of vocals and acoustic instruments. Now Samson is proud to introduce the C03U USB 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. No more need for expensive converter boxes or pre-amps. The C03U plugs right into your USB jack on any machine running Mac OS X or Windows XP and records pristine audio right into any postproduction or audio recording software such as GarageBand®. Record vocals, acoustic instruments, nature sounds in the field—anything, anywhere with studio-quality sound.
The C03U features dual 19mm internally shock mounted diaphragms with switchable omni, cardioid, and figure-8 pick-up patterns. 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 perfectly on almost any USB compliant computer, and with most DAW software programs without having to install any extra software or drivers.
The C03U lists for $389.99.
