Not to be rude....For 75.00, you can replace it with a new one. It would cost more to have someone fix it. Obviously the drop has damaged it to the point where it doesn't work. Unless you are apt to take it apart and view all of the internal parts/wires what have you. I do not advise though if you are not comfortable doing so.

SOURCE: tips on Using the Samson C01U with Cakewalk Pro Audio 9

Try this:
Control Panel > Sound Audio Device > go to Voice Tab > check your drop down list for Voice Recording and make sure you put on Samson C01U then test your hardware and see you get any pick up. I had to research on what to do.

Now my problem is why the mic is only picking up on the left side of the ear instead of the right. =/

SOURCE: whistling background noise with Samson C01U USB condenser mic

Welcome to the world of STUDIO microphones. Super quality BUT you must have a studio to use them. You can't have any local speaker playing into them. You often use headphones lest your monitor speakers will feedback. At the high frequency capability of these mics, you can fry your amps with oscillations above what you can hear!

the usb mic can't be used with the m box, it can be used as a source in your audio software however. When you assign your audio sources look for USB Codec in the choices. I have a USB mic and it works great

C01u PROBLEM PLS HELP ?!


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.

Switched from a g4 PowerPC to a g5 Intel Imac and now Mic has a lot of digital hiss


the Samson C01U picks up the noises running inside the computer, or laptop whichever you have. You can't change that. But if you want to get rid of it. I use Cool Edit Pro. There's this effect we have for Noise Reduction. I won't go further on unless you have this program, or something similar. But basically it takes out any unwanted static
