      Excellent Quality and Value

      My background: Audiophile since my teen years in the 1970s, professional broadcaster since 1978. I've spent many years talking on and listening to mics. I'll be the first to admit that my hearing's high end isn't what it used to be, but I can still recognize that this mic provides excellent sound quality and is a great value. I produce a weekly podcast of sorts, and I've been using a voice booth at the TV station where I work to do the raw recording, then take the file home for editing. That's rather inconvenient, so I got to thinking that I should buy a USB mic to use at home. The reason I picked this model is because it is available for local pickup, was on sale at $129, it has a headphone output, and it looks nice. Now that I've brought it home, I can add to the list that it has great build quality, and excellent sound. I'm sure that true audiophiles could pick at real or imagined flaws all day long, but for basic, clean vocal recording into a PC, it does an impressive job at a low price. I recorded several voice samples at home, and compared them to some recordings from the TV station voiceover booth. Although there is a slightly different coloration in the frequency response, the Samson G-Track Pro compares quite favorably. In fact, if I were not doing A-B tests, and you just walked up to me one day and presented me with a recording without telling me which mic it was from, I probably could not reliably identify the source. Clean, wide-range sound, reasonably low preamp noise, and surprisingly good shock isolation. The built-in headphone amp sounds very good and can drive low-impedance headphones to a very loud level. I didn't test the instrument input. I am confident that for any home, or even some professional voice recording scenarios, this mic will do an excellent job at a very attractive price point. I wish they had stuff like this at this price when I was cutting my audio teeth over 40 years ago!

      Great sound quality, but too many design (IMO).

      First of all, the sound quality of this microphone definitely exceeded my expectations. It’s crystal clear, crisp and blocks out unwanted noise quite well. It is definitely well built, and very durable — perhaps, a bit too much though, as I’d probably lose a few toes if the mic ever came loose. The software is great! That is, if you are able to work with it. I have used Adobe Premier and OSX Final Cut without a single problem. This software is the only one I have ever had with any. Maybe it’s over my head? If so, then I’m sure it would be over the vast majority of others — leaving it to those who are very savvy with the program in specific to benefit from it. And I highly doubt they will be using a 20-pound, $150 mic, which could basically be used as a weapon; is extremely limited in terms of inputs/outputs, connects via USB B (of all things?!), and will likely require a $300 microphone stand to hold this behemoth in place. On the other hand, it works great for voice dictation, voiceovers, podcasts and other stationary tasks.

      Falsely / Wrongly Advertised

      Posted
      bestone

      - According to the Samson tech support reply to me today, the Samson G-Track Pro is not actually a 24bit 96kHz Microphone, neither single channel or two. I have spent weeks waiting for a response from Samson Tech Support, only to find out it will not work at 24bit @ 48kHz, but will only at 16bit @ 96kHZ, (dual channel), or 24bit @ 48kHz. But, even at 16bit, I feel that a low latency kernel mode driver should have been provided. - There are no kernel mode low latency drivers. - The Serial Number for the product is on the outside of the box, (for other people to unlock the software), and it takes a few tech support calls to actually get the software that is supposed to come with it. - Warranty registration, etc., online support, etc., feels very hacked together, (which is probably how the serial numbers - on the outside of the boxes), may have been used by others to unlock the software before you buy it, (or probably through a website brute force attack). All of these issues have been raised with Samson tech support, but nothing at all appears to have changed. Regardless of the quality of the mic - (which I haven't even gotten around to testing because of this issue), I do not recommend it - because of the business practices alone.

      This is an excellent mic for USB, Id put it up with the Rode/Shure in terms of sound quality via USB. If your local sales associates try selling you on a Blue Yeti instead, tell them to take a walk. This mic has a better noise floor, does a better job cutting out unwanted noise without using 3rd party software, and offers the same different recording types for different uses. (Cardioid, Omni-directional, figure-8 etc.) It also includes a 1/4" headphone out for zero latency monitoring, and one of my favorites, a 1/4" line in which can be used for instruments or playing audio off a separate source (such as a phone with an 1/8" to 1/4" adapter). The mic monitor out sounds surprisingly good for being off a usb mic, and pushes enough power to drive the power hungry Senn. HD650's, just dont expect it to be as good as an amplified signal. LED with red peak indicator is a nice addition for setting your mic volume when not using the monitor line. Definitely would buy again, and is a perfect mic for anyone wanting sound quality without spending the money on a higher end xlr to usb interface/mixer and mic.

      Great Mic for Musicians

      This microphone sounds great and it's very easy to set up. It's a quick plug and play. I would recommend this if you're a musician because you can use it as an audio interface as well. It has a direct input which allows you to record two separate tracks for your vocals and instrument. There's a microphone gain knob and headphone monitoring input. It's a pretty sturdy and heavy mic, so it's not ideal if you're looking for something portable and lightweight. It works well with my PC, but it does NOT work with my iPhone 7 or iPad. There's an error that states the microphone "uses too much power", which is why I didn't give it five stars.

      Runs on USB Power Only

      This is a great mic when it's working like it's supposed to. There are times when the mic acts up because it's running on USB power which means you really need to plug this in directly to your machine. If plugged into a hub, make sure it's a powered hub and you have this device plugged into the port that provides power. This is important otherwise you will have probblems with this mic. Other than that, it's a fairly decent mic. Sound is good coming in my videos when using this mic. So i would say this is a slightly above average mic. I do like the hardware buttons on the mic itself to mute and change the type of mic that it is. Overall, im happy with my purchase.

      This microphone is a "sleeper" ....

      Right off the top, one disadvantage is that it's not an XLR microphone. You need the computer to make it work. It's on a table mount. It's a great microphone - it's well tempered in noisy rooms and sounds great. I need this thing "mouth level" for a vocalist - it works great as a desk microphone, but wow, I am impressed. The cons - I couldn't use this live. Too many weird problems. All the problems are typical of those talked about with USB microphones - no better or worse--nature of the thing. A similar setup without these issues would be $75 for an audio interface, and AT LEAST $350 for a microphone that performs well in unique environments.

      Works Really Well for Narration

      My intent on this microphone was to better record voices for narration for movies or short videos for my church. This is a great microphone that worked right out of the box with my mac. It is super heavy and feels like a real quality piece of equipment. I've tried using the three types of recording (Omni, etc) and all seem to work really well. I have not used the supplied software or really tried to edit the recording in post-production. This would work really well for podcasting, interviews, etc. I would recommend!
