For the first time ever, musicians who record music on computers have a simple, affordable way to capture high-quality vocal and acoustic instrument performances.
Seamless integration was the idea, and it was obtained by creating a studio condenser microphone that can be plugged into any computer with no in/out boxes, no expensive computer pre-amps, just a USB cable.
The C01U condenser microphone is based on our wildly successful C01. It features a 19mm internal shock mounted diaphragm with a cardioid pick up pattern ensuring pristine studio quality recordings.
The C01U works perfectly on any computer, Mac or PC, and with any DAW software program. It immediately solves a huge problem for users of many laptops, many of which have no other input method for audio devices.
It's a must for any musician on the road or in the project studio, but the C01U is going to offer solutions to more than just musicians. The mic opens up possibilities for anyone who records audio—from Podcasters, journalists, students, and business people adding audio files to websites and multimedia presentations.

Here are two of the most recent Web reviews on the mic: "Samson C01U: The Ultimate Podcasting Mic?" This is by noted Mac guru Derrick Story at the O'Reilly.com, a premier Web destination for Mac users:
Another review just came in from Macintouch.com, another big Mac destination Website. Ric Ford, the reviewer concluded by saying this:
"The C01U seems ideal for podcasters, and it's a very professional, useful and flexible answer for many other Mac recording tasks at a price low enough to make it a certified bargain."
