Question about Samson C01U - USB Studio Condenser Microphone Consumer Microphone

1 Answer

When I started my computer (Windows 7 64 bit) my microphone (Samson C01u) was muted (like you change microphone volume from 100 to 10). I always had volume set on 50 and there wasn't a problem but now I barely hear myself on 100. I didn't changed anything before shutting down computer. I also tried to restart computer, plug and unplug usb to microphone but still same. Hope you can give me some advies what can I do with it. Thanks.

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...

How do you bring the volume up on the c01u microphone beacause i barely hear myself when i talk


Since it's probably going through some form of electronics I would think that is where your volume control would be. Name it.

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!

Problem with Samson CO1U


Here are some instructions relayed from someone who was able to fix a similar problme with help from Samson tech support:

The C01U is a WAV device. Therefore, adjusting the slider for your default MIC input level on the volume control applet does not adjust the gain on the C01U. You access the actual volume control for the C01U as follows:

Start, Settings, Control Panel, Sounds and Audio Devices
Click on Audio tab.

Under "Sound Recording", insure that Default Device is selected as Samson C01U.

Once Samson C01U is selected as Default Recording Device, click on the Volume button just below the name. A new window will pop up, with a vertical slider. This window will be labelled "WAVE IN", however it actually does control the MIC volume for the C01U.

The key here seems to be that the USB device that represents the Microphone input (as far as Windows is concerned) is not a traditional microphone, but (as mentioned above) a WAV-IN device.
