Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone

2 Answers

Switched from a g4 PowerPC to a g5 Intel Imac and now Mic has a lot of digital hiss

Anyone have this experience? It sounded incredibly clear on the g4 tower, the only noise it picked up was from the incredible loud computer. Now I have a really quiet Imac running osx 5 and there is a ton of digital hiss.  

If I turn the input level in Apple MIDI Setup all the way down the hiss still exists. Its definitely not picking up any external sound like a fan or anything like that.  Is this a USB power issue? Is this some other sort of issue? I am incredible disappointed that the quality is so incredibly downgraded now.
Can anyone help, it would be greatly appreciated.

The Samson C01U picks up the noises running inside the computer, or laptop whichever you have. You can't change that. But if you want to get rid of it. I use Cool Edit Pro. There's this effect we have for Noise Reduction. I won't go further on unless you have this program, or something similar. But basically it takes out any unwanted static

Can't print from HP 2540 aio to my Imac PowerPc G5 OS X 10.5.8 The Imac keeps telling that the printer is offline.


A quick look at the HP web site for this printer shows that it only supports Max OS X 10.6 and later. These versions only support the intel processor based macs. Your PowerPC mac is, unfortunately, obsolete as far as Apple and the peripheral manufacturers are concerned and is not supported.

My Nancy Drew computer game won't work


Hi longview924,

Unfortunately there is no way to make that game run on your mac. Your mac uses the older powerPC architecture (all G3, G4 and G5 macintosh machines use this architecture) but the game requires that you have a mac using the newer intel architecture.

I found the details of the system requirements here:
http://www.buzz99.com/1167/nancy-drew-trail-of-the-twister-system-requirements/

Intel and PowerPC processors are very different in how they work (Intel chips are CISC chips and powerPC chips are RISC chips), which is why there is no way around it. This is also the reason why apple dropped support for the powerPC architecture in mac OS 10.6 upwards.

Without meaning to sound harsh, it may be time to consider an upgrade - macs are very expensive but the intel macbooks are leaps and bounds faster than the powerPC range :)

Sims 3 won't install on my imac G4. I have Leopard 10.8 so I have the correct system requirements. When I click on install it keeps coming up Not supported on this architecture?


If you read the system requirements of Sims 3, it says that you need at least an Intel Core Duo processor, which the iMac G4 does not have. The iMac G4 has a PowerPC processor.

Connecting external microphone to imac g5


Get yourself a great little gadget called iMic. It's a usb connector that adapts to let you used your headset mic and the mac system os will recognize it very well. Works good .

Booting an iMac g5 for the first time with out the system disc.


There are several reasons why you could be having this problem. You first need to know a little about the various "flavors" of Apple computers and operating systems.
There are two brands of processors: PowerPC (this is what you have) and Intel (what Apple switched to after your model).
There are also different types of system install disks: Specific Version (this is what would have came with the iMac originally and contains only the drivers for that model). Retail Version contains drivers and "Universal" processor code for all of the supported models and both types of processors.
Intel Macs format their drives differently than PowerPC macs. So, if the used drive was formatted for Intel you wouldn't be able to mount it, if the install disk that was used was Specific Model type rather than Retail type when the system was installed on your used disk, you wouldn't be able to mount it either.
The drive you have must be formatted for PowerPC and system installed from either the Specific Version or Retail install disc in order for you to mount it.
