SOURCE: Samson co1u recording issue

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".

SOURCE: Problem with Samson CO1U

Of course it's going to be quiet if you don't turn up the volume.

You don't need SoftPre. Just increase the gain of the mic using the normal gain control. Go to Control Panel --> Sounds and Audio Devices --> Audio tab. Select Samson C01U as the Sound recording device and then press the Volume button. Slide the slider more near the top.

SOURCE: 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.

I can't hear myself while recording. I can only hear what I have recorded AFTER the fact. During recording I cannot hear anything at all. Is there a solution to this problem when using the Samson CO1U?


Depending on what audio production program you are using you will need to have the monitoring function engaged. Comment with what program and I can walk you through it. Good Luck, Cody J.

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!

Cant get any sound from mic!!!!


Go into Play control on your computer. Click on options then properties. Look at your settings for playback and recording. Check play control and your source eg. microphone. To reach this double click on the speaker icon in your toolbar or you can find it under sounds and devices in your control panel.

SAMSON CO1U USB MIC FAILURE


Your first issue is vista... it just sucks. I would have to be there to figure this one out but im going to state the obvious, does it have an installation cd you didnt use? does it have online drivers you can find? Try looking around in your control panel and messing around with some of the options, good luck.

Samson co1u recording issue


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.
