Try this:
Control Panel > Sound Audio Device > go to Voice Tab > check your drop down list for Voice Recording and make sure you put on Samson C01U then test your hardware and see you get any pick up. I had to research on what to do.

Now my problem is why the mic is only picking up on the left side of the ear instead of the right. =/

    ACtually, after that step, that I told you, go to the samsontech site, and download Samson SoftPre, install it then go double the program, you'll see some adjusting volume scroll, and put it up as high as you want then you'll hear from 2 ears stereo sound, no need to change to mono.

    You should only be recording the Left channel, as it says in the manual, not stereo.

I have a samson c01u and using audacity. i set the input level in the control panel to 100 and also in audacity, but the the volume is still too low. i can barely hear my voice. what do i do?


1. Did you select Left channel only in Audacity for the track you're recording?
2. Maybe it's a defective mic. Try it on another computer/software/USB cable/USB port and if it still doesn't work get Samson to replace it.

I connected the microphone on my computer and the system rec.ognized the microphone but I don't know how to use it with the computer to bring out sound


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...

I use the samson C01U usb microphone on my macbook pro for almost 4 years. Now I recently updated to mac os 10.6.6 (latest update) and Samson soft pre won't start up anymore. I can't configure the mic...


1. Try reinstalling the softpre software.
2. Read through their FAQ at: http://samsontech.com/products/productFAQs.cfm?prodID=1810&brandID=2
3. Contact samson directly at audio@samsontech.com with your problem.
Good luck!

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!

After i record my voice with the microphone, it comes out 1 side


The Samson C01U records in mono, not stereo. This is why you hear sound coming only out of one (the left) channel.

C01u PROBLEM PLS HELP ?!


That's the way it's supposed to work. It's a mono microphone, so there's only one signal to record.

Set up your recording software so that it only records the Left channel. It describes how to do this on the Samson FAQ page and in the Owner's Manual:

"In your digital audio workstation (DAW), create a mono audio track, and set it to the Left channel of the C01U (the Right channel should be ignored). Arm the track for recording, and adjust the input gain by using the software control in your computer's operating system"

Don't try to alter the pan so both sides are the same; that will just screw up the levels and noise.
