Samson G-Track Pro Audio Clipping and audio gets cut out often. Is there anyway to fix it?

I recently bought a Samson G-Track Pro. When I plugged it in and listened to it, it hurts my ears a lot because of too much clipping and I just tried to turning the mic button but it didn't work. Then I pushed the mic button hard against the mic and I could suddenly hear it becomes normal. So now I have tape around the microphone to secure the button from being loosened. If it becomes loosened then it will cause audio clipping for my microphone. And one more thing that I usually gets is that when I chat with my friends, I talk but it doesn't record any of what I say for a while so they didn't hear the part that I was saying.

Your mic still picks up sound when it's unplugged ?
As far as the other prob goes that sounds like howl round ( feedback ), mute the mic when not talking through it or get a mic with a cardioid polar response pattern ( just ask for a cardioid mic, can get a hypercardioid or supercardioid too but a cardioid would be best for your application, point the mic right at your speaking position with the back of the mic pointing at the speakers wich ideally should be behind the mic, this will help cancel out their sound, puting a limiter on the mic and setting it where it only starts picking up sound when you talk directly into it will help too, but the sure fire way to solve the prob is to mute the mic when not speaking into it. What you definitely don't want is an omnidirectional mic, for what you are using a mic for.

SOURCE: Many Problems with Samson G-Track or not?

I bought a SAMSON G Track and had similar problems. It would not record sound unless the mic knob was 90% or more and then the sound would have a lot of background noise/whine. I spent several hours reading the solutions on this site and nothing work so I returned it. They sent me a new one and I no longer have this problem. My advice? Just return or exchange it. I am still having problems recording it and having it play back in stereo though.

I can only hear one side of my headphone with the Samson S-Amp! wheni pull the headphone cable out i can hear on both ears. what kind of connection do i need to listen in stereo?


Are you using a STEREO input cable? Is the source of the audio stereo? The stereo cable will have three connections on the plug... the sleeve, the ring and the tip.

If you only have mono source or using a mono cable you will only get sound in the left headset. Pulling the plug part way out will sometimes contact both connection so you will hear both.

If your source is mon, you will need a special cable that connects the mono signal to both sides of the input plug, that is the ring AND the tip.

I need a manual for the Nordic Track Pro's heart/pulse monitor.


I believe this unit uses a chest strap for monitoring heart rate and the clip you are referring to maybe the safety and the clip attaches to your running apparel. Go to iconfitness.com click on to customer service then parts replacement enter the manufacturer and model name and you should be able to get and manual for this on PDF

Samson G-Track mic does not work with garageband effects


Look man just use the input as a way for your pre-amp's to plug in.... you don't want any of those built in guitar effects anyways... You just need a good multi pedal.. There are many good recording Pre-amps out there that work great and are fully adjustable for easy recording.. You can do what you want but, I think you will like the sound of pre-amp effects pedals in your computer set up....

Thats just a tip

Many Problems with Samson G-Track or not?


Hi.  I dunno if yur using pc or mac but with a mac yu need to adjust the mic settings on the comp. For the static its probably your set up or as i said in another guys problem, the usb cable given with it is **** so try using another one from a printer or wtv to see if that makes a difference for you. Also if you are recording just through the mic i find that it seems to only work well when the input is on line and not inst/mic. Hope this can be of some help. Its a great piece of kit once you get it working well.. Goodluck

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.

It's supposed to only record on the left side. When it's in "INST/MIC" mode the left channel has your mic on it and the right channel has your instrument, so you can mix them separately. Just configure your recording software to put the left channel on one track and the right channel on another track.

Samson G-track - Vista requiring to install USB Audio Codec


If the LED doesn't light when you plug it in, and it doesn't show up in Device Manager ("USB Composite Device" or "USB Audio Device"), then the mic must be defective. Contact Samson for a replacement.
