Question about Samson G-TRACK USB RECORDING MICROPHONE Microphone
I found this on the Apple Website...
This may fix it for you...
Ok, I may have found a solution. (Leopard 10.5.5, fwiw)
The problem, according to some people in a different forum, may be related to the clock source of the USB box.
To fix this, I went into Apps/Utilities/Audio Midi Setup. In the Audiomenu there is an entry "Open Aggregate Device Editor". Click that.
In the dialog, click the + button at the bottom of the list, which was empty on my machine.
It will add a new device and in the bottom pane all the sound devicesin your computer will show up. Only check the ones you want to use (USBaudio). Then use the Clock radio button and select one of the USBdevices as the clock source (I used the output).
Now set your default input and output to "Aggregate Device".
That fixed it for me. YMMV, as always.

It is being suggested in Apple Support forum that the static is the result of problems with Apple Core Audio software, rather than the G-Track mic. People using any variety of mics, mixers, interfaces are running into loud static when using their macs with 3rd party audio equipment. I would not abandon the G-track immediately, but try out your set up with other equipment (preferably another USB mic) and see if the static is still there.

I had the same problem intermittently with two different ones so I say no more.

Go ahead and use the usb just for power, but try to plug it in to something other than your mac, like a usb power supply or a PC, and then run a 1/8" audio cable from the headphone jack on the right side of the mic to your audio input on your mac. If you still want to monitor as you record, you can buy a splitter for the headphone jack and run both a set of headphones AND your 1/8" audio cable from that. I've given it some thought, and I think it's better than the alternative of returning it and buying a pre-amp, a good quality mic, and a mixer for $300+

Gtrack doesnt work really well with mac..
it does with PC
you can restart your mac, and MAYBE it would fix the static noise, but JUST MAYBE. most of the time, it just doesn't do any good..
and if it does.. the noise will come back soon..
so, i'd say this Gtrack is not for mac..
