Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone
Hey, my Samson CO1U records at a very low level, it sounds foggy, like the sound is underwater. I have tried to adjust the sound level in the System Preferences, but it still sounds horrible.
What do I do? Any advice?
IMac 2.66 GH Intel Core 2 Duo
Os X 10.5.6
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.
