The Samson Q1UCW is a handheld USB microphone for plug-and-play operation with Windows and Mac based computers. The C1UCW utilizes a dynamic, neodymium element for maximum detail and quality without external power. The USB port provides audio directly to computers without additional hardware and power is supplied from the computer USB port.
The Windows SoftPre applet software provides added features that include remote operation over volume control, high-pass filter and phase switch. Its hypercardioid polar pattern greatly reduces signal at the off-axis (indirect) sections of the capsule, reducing ambient noise and providing high gain before feed back. The microphone also includes Cakewalk's Music Creator 5 software, allowing even inexperienced artists to craft, refine and publish tracks with ease. The Q1UCW is an ideal solution for desktop producers, musicians and Podcasters.
