Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone
I've recently purchased a Samson C01U USB Condenser Mic and I'm already having problems with it. My main problem is:
When I try to record using Cool Edit Pro 2.1, it will only pick up the on the left side and barely or not even at all on the right side of the ear like it's totally panned out. Same goes with the useless CD that came with the package, Sonar Le Cakewalk program. I've done all editing to make the C01U to be the primary mic to use, it's just the vocals only picks up for the left side, not the right. Any clues? It would be greatfull thanks
That's the way it's supposed to work. It's a mono microphone, so there's only one signal to record.
Set up your recording software so that it only records the Left channel. It describes how to do this on the Samson FAQ page and in the Owner's Manual:
"In your digital audio workstation (DAW), create a mono audio track, and set it to the Left channel of the C01U (the Right channel should be ignored). Arm the track for recording, and adjust the input gain by using the software control in your computer's operating system"
Don't try to alter the pan so both sides are the same; that will just screw up the levels and noise.
