Basically...when I record.....it only records into one side of the speakers..for example....all the sound of my voice recording comes out the left speakers...but is very quiet out of the right..it doesn't seem to change when I hold the mic different ways...Any suggestions as to why this would be happening?...Some weird setting I need to change maybe...or the way I'm using the samson to record?
You first 3 people are idiots... maybe if you had worked with the hardware you would know how the mic works because its obvious you don't. The 4th person is correct because this is exactly how i use the mic and it captures sound in stereo format beautiful when set up rite. Using it in mono, whether use keep on one channel or two drastically reduces the crisp sound that this mic can record.
As explained by the honourable people before me, this Mic is not Stereo. Make sure you create a MONO track when recording vocals in your Nuendo/Ableton Live/Cubase with your Samson and when at play back, it should come out from both speakers equally. Cheers Cass www.surek.co.uk

Re: Samson co1u recording issue
The microphone is not a stereo device, so the fact that it is recording OK on one channel actually confirms that it is operating OK. I would look to the settings in your recording software that is panned to one side. Or to the software you are using for playback to be sure that it is not panned(balance control) to one side. Hope this helps. If not, get back to me and we can get into it further
Microphones are not stereo! There's only one channel because there's only one mic.
Don't touch the pan control. You
should only be recording from the left channel and then playing it back
in stereo to hear the same thing in both speakers. When you set up the
mic for recording, choose "mono mode" or "left channel only".

To avoid feeback whilst recording, make sure all speakers and monitors are turned off while you record. Otherwise the microphone will pick up both the sound of your voice from your mouth as well as the sound of your voice coming out of the speakers, causing an endless loop of nasty feedback! So just make sure speakers (incl. computer speakers if those are what you are using to listen) are muted whilst recording!
This is because the G Track's Mic signal is on the Left channel and the Instrument signal is on the Right channel. You are making a stereo recording when you should be making 2 mono recordings. Does Nicecast have an option to set the track to mono Left channel? Traktor should, but I haven't used it so I can't tell you where the option is. There's probably a Track Input drop-down or something like that.
Hello Mithmar hi, try setting the volume for your microphone, (i'm assuming you are using X P) to do this right click the speaker icon (or the mixer icon) on the lower right side of your screen, you will go to the volume controls section, goto options, then properties, select recording. check the microphone, then click apply/ok. On the mixer there is now the microphone slider. Test your microphone by loading the sound recorder program (start, all programs, accessories, entertainment, sound recorder, press the red button) then shout to the microphone, you should see wave patterns on the recorder, your microphone is working fine. at this point let me know your progress.
Most laptops do have Microphones built in. I do not know for definate that your laptop does, but you can easily test it to find out.
1. Go to the volume control (double click the speaker icon near the clock on the taskbar), go to recording properties and select microphone as the recording source and set the slider to about 80%.
2. Bring up microsoft sound recorder (its in the start menu somewhere) and click record... when you speak you should see a voice print appear in the sound recorder window.
If you do not see a voiceprint, then you probably dont have a built in microphone, but if you do see a voiceprint as you speak then you do have a microphone built in and you can record into your powerpoint shows to your hearts content.
The G-Track is a mono-microphone, but your computer recognizes it as a 2 channel device because of the input connector on the side. You need to go into your computer's sound control panel, locate the G-Track microphone and change it to a 1 channel device. Alternatively, you can use advanced recording software to take the left channel input and manipulate it however you want.
I have written a guide on How to convert Records and Tapes to CD. I have found that when someone asks me a question like yours here is what I tell them. Go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Download the program Audacity. It is a completely free program. It works great for many audio applications. It does not have spware or adware or anything like that attached to it. In fact many studios use this program. Click on the Download Audacity 1.2.6 link to download the program. Install the program and open the main window. In the middle of the window you will see a field that is labeled Microphone. If the field is not set to Microphone then change it by clicking on the drop down menu. There are two slider controls to the left and right of the small microphone icon. Click on the sliders and set them at about 1/2. These 2 controls are your microphone input level and your Audacity main volume control. Now simply click on the round red record button. Talk into your microphone. If your mic is recording you should see recorded sound waves in the middle of the window. Click on the square stop button and then click on the rewind button. Next click on the green play button. Make sure your computer speakers are turned up. If this doesn't work your sound card may not have recording capabilities or you may have your mic plugged into the wrong connection on your tower. You can move the mic to a different connection and try recording again. Just don't plug into your speaker connection this could damage the microphone. You can check to see if your sound card has recording capabilities by competing the following On your desktop click on start - control panel - sound, speech, and audio devices then click on sound and audio devices. When the small Sound and Audio Device Window opens, click on the audio tab. Under the title sound recording, you should have a sound card listed in that field. For example my card is a SoundMaxDigital Audio. The field is right next to the small microphone icon. If there is no card listed you can buy a cheap one online or even at Wal - Mart. They are very easy to install. You just find an empty slot on *********** board and your computer should recognize the card.
