Samson Meteor Overview

Convenience is key with this microphone: its all-zinc, white body sits on fold-back legs designed to sit on your desktop in the optimal position for your recording application.

Should you want to use your own mic stand, you can use the mic's built-in mic-stand adapter. You'll find the mic delivers a solid audio quality while minimizing effects of the room, thanks to its cardioid polar pattern. You'll be able to monitor you audio without latency over the 3.5mm headphone jack.

question

As this is a Studio Stereo Mic. Does that mean that, when wearing headphones, you can hear the sound from either side of your head? E.g. If I click my fingers on the right hand side of the mic, I'll hear the click in my right ear, not my left or visa versa?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Meteor Mic is a mono microphone with no separation between right and left.

Is the mic compatible with Windows 7 right out of the box with no driver?
Asked by: MJ
No, the Samson Meteor USB Mic does require installation of universal drivers which enable compatibility with Windows 7. The drivers will install the first time you plug the Meteor Mic into the USB port on your computer while connected to the internet.

Using a USB 2.0 mini b 5 pin to mini b 5 pin ...

Using a USB 2.0 mini b 5 pin to mini b 5 pin male/male cable could you connect the meteor mic to a Tascam DR-40 and record audio into the Tascam?
Asked by: Sean
This USB microphone only works when directly connected to a computer, you can not connect to a audio recorder such as the Tascam DR-40, the recorder has a usb on the side however that's only to transfer files to a computer or power the unit with a battery pack It's not a usb microphone input.
