I'm trying to record through a samson gtrack usb mic on my hewlit packard compaq notebook. I'm getting crackles and pops all the time, more so when I;m making noise but still when it is just on. There is also a high pitched electrical surge sound(i think thats the best way to decribe it) that comes through every 5 secs or so. Help me obe1, your my only hope...Kenny from Ausralia

The thing is that the Samson C01U was not designed for live applications. Your solution, if you like delayed sound, is to use Virtual Audio Cable. Otherwise, I would get either a Samson GTrack, or invest in a cheap but functional mixer with a good mic. If you want to record however, you go into your audio recording settings and select the C01U as the recording mic. If you record and hear little sound, go into sound manager... Click on properties and select on Samson C01U. A one channel volume control will pop out. change the volume and record. BTW, a good audio program is Audacity... It's free. I hope that I have helped you...
Disagree with previous post. The GTrack is designed to record vocals and a mono insrtument at the same time. That's its main selling point. It should also allow monitoring of both the vocals and guitar alongside the playback from the computer. In your computer's Control Panel, go to sound preferences, select the usb microphone and click on advanced tab. It is likely yours is set up to record 1 channel at CD quality - this is how many ship for some reason. Set it to 2 Channels CD quality. In Sonar, set your track input as USB Left for the vocals, and USB Right for your guitar.
I dunno if yur using pc or mac but with a mac yu need to adjust the mic settings on the comp. For the static its probably your set up or as i said in another guys problem, the usb cable given with it is **** so try using another one from a printer or wtv to see if that makes a difference for you. Also if you are recording just through the mic i find that it seems to only work well when the input is on line and not inst/mic. Hope this can be of some help. Its a great piece of kit once you get it working well..
Just stick the mic in front of the guitar amp :) That easy really. Even though it is a cheap amp, you will still get results(probably better than you expect.. In the studio thats how all guitars are recorded. If you have any more questions, happy to answer. Cheers
