The Samson Q1U is the very first dynamic handheld USB microphone, which remains the most affordable choice for simple, versatile handheld dynamic miking capabilities.
The Q1U delivers pristine audio quality and convenience with high-quality components, handheld design and USB interface. This unit is USB compatible with any Mac or PC, as well as most DAW software programs, including GarageBand. It also comes with Cakewalk’s Music Creator LE digital audio workstation software. Its supreme ability to produce pristine audio recordings with ease and moblity, along with a desktop mic stand, mic clip, USB cable and carry pouch also included, makes the Q1U a most valueable addition to any studio, classroom, or office.
The Q1U features a smooth sounding neodymium element, capable of handling high SPL, cleverly interfaced to an on-board high quality microphone pre-amp, high-quality A/D converter and USB output. The supercardioid pickup pattern provides smooth, flat frequency and a fast transient response, insuring a precise reproduction with linear characteristics from bottom to top. Capturing audio at 16-bit resolution up to 48kHz sampling rate, the Q1U offers the accuracy you need to be sure that what you hear is what you get.
The Q1U is perfect for any computer recording application, but its handheld functionality offers additional solutions for anyone who records audio, particularly musicians, podcasters, academic groups, and business professionals.
For musicians, the convergence of computer and audio technologies has established the home/mobile studio as an alternative to the professional recording facility. Whether you’re touring the country or experimenting in your project studio, the Q1U sets the standard for integrating your computer into your recording experience. The supercardioid pickup pattern faithfully reproduces vocals and acoustic instruments, and can handle high SPL found on drums or in front of loud guitar amps. The Q1U is ideal for recording music on-the-go or in limited spaces, allowing all musicians tremendous freedom to create.
The evolution of podcasting has created a need for high-quality production capabilities that are also attainable by everyone. Satisfying these criteria, particularly in field interviewing, the Q1U is a podcaster's dream come true. Given a simple USB connection straight into your computer, it provides your location recordings with unparalleled quality in audio recording. As the Q1U is universally web-handy, the voices of web journalists are empowered to establish a real identity in the congested world of podcasting.
With computer-based technology becoming more steadily incorporated into educational protocols, useful functions for the Q1U among students, professors and administrators are also on the rise. In addition to podcasting, the Q1U can expand the educational applications for Skype, VoIP, screen capture software like Camtasia Studio and voice recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking. These applications, all of which can be used to teach, study or catalogue academic materials, are made easy with the superior degree of handy audio recording delivered by the Q1U. So, whether you’re recording notes, interviews, lectures or projects, the Q1U helps make education a more accessible and interactive experience.
Whether mounted or handheld, the Q1U provides answers for those business professionals in need of revitalizing their corporate communications. Ideal for rich media on websites, in multimedia presentations, company meetings or corporate events, the Q1U’s features allow for easy recording of studio-quality audio clips to make communications more impactful and your presentations come to life. Additionally, the mobility of the Q1U greatly factors into its attractiveness among business professionals. Its handheld design and USB interface make the Q1U easily transported and utilized en route to that next meeting.
Samson offers a collection of pro-level accessories (all sold separately) that can be used to further enhance the recording experience of the Q1U, including the PS01 microphone pop filter and the BL3 ultra-light boom stand. The PS01’s nylon mesh screen will reduce vocal popping and sibilance from affecting the performance of your Q1U. It also comes equipped with a universal mic stand mounting bracket and a flexible metal gooseneck for convenient placement. Lastly, the BL3 combines the crucial elements of lightweight durability with an attractive and functional design. This collapsible tripod boom stand has a sturdy die-cast and steel construction that offers superior resiliency with great flexibility of positioning, so it's always convenient and never conspicuous.
