Question about Samson G-TRACK USB RECORDING MICROPHONE Microphone

1 Answer

Can not set device input level in system preferences for MAC

I tried to set up the G-Track as described in the manual on both my Intel iMac with OSX 10.5.6 and my G4 Powerbook with OSX 10.4.11. On both systems I was NOT able to set the Input Volume because the system just did not recognize the device is able to use this feature. Instead there is the message >device does not support input level control< (translated from the german system, sorry for inaccuracies). Nevertheless the G-Tracks seems to be installed correctly because it is working more or less in all programms BUT recorded audio levels are very low despite setting the controler on the G-Track to MAX.
Does anyone know why this happens? Or have a solution for the system pref. error?

That's correct. There's no other input volume control besides the analog knobs on the front.

The level's still too low with the knob turned to max? What are you trying to record?

It sounds like you have done everything right. It would be a good idea to check both the mic and Protools system separately. If you can, verify that the mic works using another device such as a mixer. Also try getting a level into Protools using another mic, preferably a dynamic which doesn't require phantom power. If you are trying to use an original MBOX under Windows 7 or the latest version of OSX then it may not work at all.

I have imac. and i want to change his operating


Yes it is very easy to do as you are running a Mac with Intel Processor. You have Mac OSx Leopard with updates 1,2, & 3. To upgrade to Mac OSx Snow Leopard you must buy the upgrade. Go here: http://www.apple.com/macosx/ On the top right click (Buy Now) You will have to pay $29 which is a bargain. Once you get the upgrade on CD simply follow the directions for the simple upgrade. I did the same thing when Snow Leopard came out. It is well worth the $29.

Have an apple imac with built in mic but is not working


Check input settings. Apple in the top left > System Preferences > Sound > Input. Make sure it's actually set to the built-in mic.
Reset the PRAM. See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1379
Try recording in PhotoBooth or GarageBand.

SAMSON CO1U recordings sound like they're underwater on my MAC


The behavior you describe suggests that the mic is not getting power. Since it is a condenser mic, it requires what is usually called "phantom power". This should be provided thru the USB port. Check to be sure that the USB port is supplying that power. Check with another port for example. If that fails, you may have a defective mic.

Keep us posted.

Sound is controlled in the Systems Preferences. Go to the Apple icon (top left on top menu bar), then Systems Preferences > Sound. Check the Input Output configurations, making sure that mute is off and volume is on appropriately. I would think the "Built In" choices would be appropriate. I hope this helps.
