Product Description

The G-Track is a total solution capable of taking you from your musical inspiration to your finished tracks. Samson's G-Track is the world's first USB condenser microphone with a built-in audio interface and mixer, allowing simultaneous input of vocals and guitar, bass, or keyboard while also providing monitoring through an on board headphone output.

The G-Track allows you to record vocals like a standard USB mic, or two mono instruments through the line/instrument input, or a mix of one mono instrument and vocal. Now singer/songwriters can directly record vocals and instruments quickly and easily with one device, making the G-Track a must have for any songwriter's home studio. And its ease of use and portability allows you to take it anywhere inspiration may strike you.

Ideal for the traveling musician or the project studio, the G-Track ships with a desktop mic stand, swivel stand mount, USB cable and all the cables needed to connect any musical instrument with a standard 1/4" or RCA output. The G-Track ships with Cakewalk's Sonar LE and works brilliantly with Apple's GarageBand.

Features:

- Large-diaphragm condenser microphone with built-in audio interface and USB digital output
- Compatible with most any Mac and PC based Digital Audio Workstation
- The microphone's 19mm capsule with 3-micron diaphragm is extremely detailed and the supercardioid pickup pattern makes it ideal for recording vocals, acoustic instruments and just about any other sound source
- Onboard headphone amp with level control allows you to listen to the inputs and mix directly from the microphone, plus you can use the output to connect active studio monitors
- A direct monitor mixer, with mono or stereo modes, is provided for zero-latency monitoring
- The microphone includes a stereo line input for connecting electric guitar and bass, plus keyboards, drum machines, MP3 players and just about any other line level signal
- The Instrument and Mic input gain controls with Peak LED make it easy to set the proper clean signal when recording with the mic or line inputs
- On-board 48 kHz/16-bit AD converters
- On the road, in the studio or in a fixed installation, the solid die-cast construction make the microphone a reliable audio tool from venue to venue, day in and night out
- A complete cable set with guitar cable, headphone extension, stereo line with RCA adapters, and 10-foot USB cable is included
- A cast base desk stand and metal swivel adapter are included to easily position the microphone right out of the box
- Optional shockmount available (SP04)

"Rockin' with an occasional a rollin'"
Sound: Sounds pretty good. I rock pretty hard. I do a lot of yelping, screaming, and howling and the microphone seems to take it pretty well. My voice comes in actually pretty clearly without clipping which is pretty cool. Absolutely no self noise problems, that I heard that other USB mic's had. However, I don't like that you have to be really close for this to sound the way I would like it. I purchased a pop filter and a shockmount. Which I now feel might have been unnecessary purchases. I would get very close to the mic and pop as many P's as possible and I didn't get any sound pops. Unless your gonna be dancing with the mic in your hand and recording at the same time I don't think the shockmount is a must, which I purchased directly from Samson. Feature: I absolutely hate the fact that when you record vocals on one track it records it solely panned to the left side of the track. Yes, welcome to Suck City. If this weren't the problem it would be an almost flawless mic. Of course you can fix this problem with any DAW program. It would of been cool if there were a mono option for recording vocals from the mic. Some features that save this mic from me returning it are the ability to connect your instrument and/or headphones directly to the mic. Awesome feature. Ease of Use: It's really easy to use. Quality: The quality is good. It's a fairly heavy mic. If I were to hit it with a bat it might break. If I were to throw it at the wall it might not. Seemingly well built, sturdy. The volume knobs I think will be the the first to give. Value: I say it's worth it. The instrument in line and headphone connect really increase the value. Manufacturer Support: I haven't called them yet. The Wow Factor: It looks really cool and professional looking. I fell for it's charm. Overall: I purchased it for the better or for the worse and so far it's been for the better.

"Sound quality and integrated package outweighs the slight background noise for me"
Sound: A lot of people have commented on the background noise level on this mic. The thing I found is that this is affected by what USB cable you use with it. With the cable I was using at first, it was pretty bad. When I switched to a higher quality cable, it made a substantial improvement. The noise is still detectable in some circumstances, but for a lot of what I do (vocals), the noise is not noticeable. What you do notice is how great the mic sounds. A lot of presence, with both highs and lows clearly present without being overblown. Even using it without a pop filter, pops haven't been a problem for me. In a side by side comparison with Samson's C01U, this mic clearly sounded better, mainly I think because the rolled off the way they are with the C01U. The audio interface is also quite good in quality. Working with headphones, the audio output is noticeably better than plugging the headphones directly into my MacBook. Feature: I had decided that I wanted a high quality USB-based microphone. The extra features this Mic was not important to me when making my purchase. However, I've since found the built-in mixer and headphone monitoring capabilities invaluable. It's great to have the mic gain control directly on the microphone, as opposed to having to load up a special driver on the computer to control this. Ease of Use: Simply plugged it into the USB port on my Macbook, and it worked immediately. No need to install any drivers or do anything special. The controls on the mic itself are simple and intuitive to use. Quality: Excellent build quality. This mic feels very substantial; not at all plasticy. However, the one problem I've had is that sometimes partway through a recording the audio switches from being clear to being all garbled and distorted. Unplugging and re-plugging in the Mic resolves this, but it's definitely disappointing. Value: What you get is in line with what you pay for it. A separate condenser mic and external audio interface would be more expensive, but I understand this would avoid the low level background noise issue that people have discussed with this mic. For me, that background noise is minor enough to not outweigh having everything in one package that is provided with this mic. The Wow Factor: As mentioned above, it's very solid feeling, doesn't look at all like a toy. Overall: Aside from the slight background noise, it sounds fantastic. The convenience of having everything integrated into one package - no need for separate external audio interface and mixer boxes if you just need to record a single mic and optionally a single additional instrument. It's not intended for everyone, and many people will still want the flexibility and benefits of separate audio interface, mics, etc. However, for a singer-songwriter, electronic music person, or someone wanting a recording studio on-the-go, it's hard to beat this product.
