    Samson G-Track reviews

    G-Track USB Recording Microphone is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent overall, great for piano - Superlative value for price - Simple to setup - Fills the bill for high-quality home studio work - Main use: recording piano. The included mic stand works great for this. The stand is simply placed atop the piano (midi grand) facing inward towards the strings. Connects to MAC laptop, recording into Garage Band. Couldn't be easier. The final result is actually better than some mid-range studios I've used for recording piano. Captures the entire sound spectrum of the piano very well, and the tonal range is well balanced. - Controls on the mic are a brilliant touch - Overall build quality seems excellent - What a great product for taking advantage home digital recording on a computer

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Suitable for music demos I evaluated this on the basis of making music demos using a professional DAW (Tracktion 3) on both a laptop and desktop. (I bought it for remote recording with my laptop.) Regarding latency, the built-in audio interface responded to buffer settings in my DAW, with the default setting at 52mS. I was able to reduce the settings to about 20mS, which is still too large for real-time monitoring. However the direct monitor function on the mic worked fine and my DAW compensated the latency and lined the recording up correctly. On my laptop I had to run Tracktion's auto-detect function to set the latency compensation correctly. (You can confirm compensation by holding your monitoring headphones up to the mic to record the sound of your DAW's click track. When you zoom in, the recorded click track should fall within a millisecond or two of the beat markers.) Regarding noise, I recorded myself speaking directly into the mic and compared against my usual recording chain (1 condenser/preamp/24 bit sound card). After matching levels, the G-track's noise measured only about 6 dB higher. However the character of the noise had a high-frequency emphasis which I think is an artifact of some USB mics. So subjectively I think you can expect about 12 dB worse signal to noise ratio compared with a professional condenser mic. The mic is probably not a good choice for recording quiet sources, but is ok for its intended use of close-miked vocals. You probably won't be bothered by noise recording loud instruments like drum or amped guitars. (Also note that the popular Shure SM57 dynamic mic also has significantly higher noise than the studio setup against which this comparison was made.) Sound character was fine, though as with most condenser mics I like to apply a broad EQ peak around 1-2kHz to flatter vocals. The mic was not too sensitive to plosives -- as long as you hold the mic away at least 8. I'd recommend a pop filter or wind screen, homemade or otherwise. I didn't try it on guitar or other instruments, but suspect the high-frequency emphasis would work well for most applications. Anyway I'm a firm believer that a mic's character can easily be changed to suit your needs with EQ plugins. (But don't expect to magically gain the transparency and low distortion of high-end mics.) The various switches and volume knobs are very useful and logical, the headphone jack is well-placed, and the mic has a nice heft and shape which feels comfortable in your hand. Solid little stand too. A surprisingly high-quality kit for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent mic i use this mic for recording acoustic guitar and vocals, just using my macbook and garageband. it is an excellent buy, good price for a high quality piece of equipment. set up was really easy, and the sound quality is very good for a plug-and-play usb mic. i strongly recommend it to any musician looking for a microphone to help with getting a start in recording.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the acoustic performer I use the product for recording myself singing while playing acoustic guitar. The guitar can be connected to GTRACK via the pickup, but I just try recording live while recording only by the mic my voice and the guitar at the same: wow, I'm amazed how to quality is perfect!Naturally, the best way is to record the guitar plugged in, and after record the voice on another track... and the GTRACK permit this also!Just a point about the Cakewalk software shipped with the product: I don't like, I prefer Audacity, much more simple!The GTRACK is shipped with some USB and audio connector, everything is in the box. For the one who is composing music and song at home, this is a professional choice at a very good price.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, versatile mic The mic seems well made and once I figured out how to use the accompanying Sonar software, it is quite capable. The simple volume controls seem a bit too coarse in their resolution, but maybe that's all I can expect in such a self-contained package. I'm still learning how best to adjust the controls to hear tracks and my own playing, but I think the mic will be very good for my intended uses (mostly recording a few tracks and sometimes multiple inputs).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from great microphone for the price I use this microphone mostly for recording voice. First I was disappointed with the quality of the sound, but I was wrong because my computer sound card was really lousy compared with the quality of the microphone. I bought a 24 bit recording sound card. Now I need a good voice editing software. The sonar software that came with it I did not like at all, not user friendly, very hard to use. Useless piece of software, in fact I do not even know if that thing works.. I took one star off for the software that is not user friendly at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This mike will pick up your toe-tapping We use the microphone to record voice-over tracks for online Flash demos. The microphone is plug-and-play as long as you are familiar with audio recording software. If not, the learning curve will be with the software. This microphone does include some controls. Again, very easy to use and understand. Once assembled to the stand, you'll look like Johny Carson and start drumming your pencils on the wire cover. It's a beautiful, sturdy piece of recording equipment suitable for all online needs.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value. Good product. I use it for recording my voice over auditions from my home, with Audacity software. I would recommend getting a pop filter for it. And I bought a clutch mic stand. The table stand it comes with is fine if you prefer to sit, but the instructions are confusing - you have to take out the bolt that is inside before you begin. Good value.
