Overview

The Samson Meteor Mic is the universal solution for inputting live audio to your computer. It is perfect for home studio applications, but the Meteor Mic is also ideal for Skype, iChat or voice recognition software. Its cardioid pickup pattern, smooth frequency response and 16-bit, 44.1/48kHz resolution give you professional audio results no matter what the project. Meteor Mic's chrome-plated body includes a fold-back leg design that looks cool on your desktop, and the legs adjust to the optimal position for any application from acoustic guitars to vocals or speech.

Since there's no need for drivers, you can start recording right out of the box on any computer. And Meteor Mic is compatible with most computer-based digital audio workstations. A USB cable and carry pouch are also included.

For singer/songwriters or a band looking to capture a jam session right on a computer, Meteor Mic ensures you get every note. Its cardioid pickup pattern captures pristine vocals or can be used to close-mic an instrument or guitar amplifier. Unlike other USB mics that require a powered USB hub, Meteor Mic plugs right into your iPad with Apple's USB connector.

For multimedia creators, Meteor Mic brings amazing audio quality to voiceovers. If you're adding narration to a company video, or even your home movies, Meteor Mic will give your words clarity and impact. You can even use Meteor Mic to narrate PowerPoint presentations.

Meteor Mic is an all-in-one solution that lets you make great recordings on your computer.

Samson Meteor

By Ryan Baker

from Richmond VA

Comments about Samson Meteor USB Mic:

This is microphone is alright for the price, definitely not ideal for vocal recording in a home studio or in your DAW due to the fact that this mic will pick up many background sounds and also distort with higher volumed vocals. I owned for 7 months which showed the mic a lot of use.. I would say from my experience that the mic definitely loses sound quality over time which is why I have upgraded to a Cardioid condenser microphone.. Good price for a mic if youre on a budget, NOT a permanent recording solution.

Dont Buy without a Warranty

By Tyler Hernandez

from houston

Comments about Samson Meteor USB Mic:

If your gonna buy something for recording at home its alright not the best mic for recording but if your on the road recording stuff or touring with the mic you might need to take in consideration that it is very fragile and the USB port(the micro USB port in the back of the meteor)will become loose and break from just by taking it in and out of its case. Dont waste your $$$ unless you buy the warranty which is very cheap.
