Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone
Basically...when I record.....it only records into one side of the speakers..for example....all the sound of my voice recording comes out the left speakers...but is very quiet out of the right..it doesn't seem to change when I hold the mic different ways...Any suggestions as to why this would be happening?...Some weird setting I need to change maybe...or the way I'm using the samson to record?
any help would be appreciated..thanks
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.

As explained by the honourable people before me, this Mic is not Stereo.
Make sure you create a MONO track when recording vocals in your Nuendo/Ableton Live/Cubase with your Samson and when at play back, it should come out from both speakers equally.

The microphone is not a stereo device, so the fact that it is recording OK on one channel actually confirms that it is operating OK. I would look to the settings in your recording software that is panned to one side. Or to the software you are using for playback to be sure that it is not panned(balance control) to one side. Hope this helps. If not, get back to me and we can get into it further

Use Sound Forge 9 to record. There u see the channels in the right. Right click on each channel and set it to RIGHT. This solved my problem

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".
