How in the world did they make this mic sound so good. I was skeptical and almost bought the AT2020 instead, but my goodness. This mic sounds like a mic that cost thousands. Especially when you turn on the high pass filter on with the 8 pattern at 0 setting. Its sooo warm. Like wait, why use xlr again? I really am serious not trying to sell this thing, but my goodness I'm super impressed.

A great USB Mic!

I chose this mic initially because my mixer was wearing out, and the idea of simply plugging into any USB port on any computer was irresistible! I was a little behind in my projects, so I didn't get to use it right away. But when I did.......Man! The other mic I have has it's own set of parameters which needed to be setup on the mixer whenever it was used (smaller mixer), and I was able to get some good sound through it. The first take I recorded on the Samson C03U was so n-i-i-i-i-i-i-c-e that ideas for more vocal songs and projects began tumbling into my head! I love being inspired in my music! And this inspires me! If there were only more hours in a day! All my recording buddies got the same call from me....."You gotta go hear this thing!" They were impressed with what I told them! Now, I did run into a couple of snags when using it with ASIO. but that was resolved quickly. Plug it in, and go! If only there were more hours in a day!
