(Dave Molter | Posted 2011-04-18)
Offering a cool retro '50s "capsule" architecture, Samson’s new Meteor Mic is now available nationwide at Best Buy and other retailers for less than $100.
Meteor Mic is the universal solution for recording music on your computer. Perfect for your home studio, Meteor Mic is also ideal for Skype, iChat, voice recognition software and is compatible with iPad’s GarageBand. Affordably priced, Meteor Mic is available for $99.
Featuring a large condenser and all chrome-plated body, Meteor Mic’s fold-back leg design allows for the optimal positioning for any recording application from acoustic guitars to speech. Meteor Mic comes equipped with a stereo 1/8-inch headphone output for no latency monitoring and a headphone volume control. In addition, a microphone mute switch gives you audio privacy while video conferencing.
Since there are no drivers required, you can start recording with your Meteor Mic right out of the box. The mic can be directly connected to any computer and is compatible with most computer-based digital audio software. A USB cable and protective carrying pouch are included.
“The response to Meteor Mic has been terrific,” says Scott Goodman, President of Samson. “We’re looking forward to musicians having a lot of fun recording with it, especially now that Apple has introduced GarageBand as an app for the iPad.”
Samson began 30 years ago as an audio technology company designing wireless microphone systems. Today, we are an industry leader with three distinct brands: Samson, Hartke and Zoom. Over 250 products designed and distributed by Samson are sold in 130 countries throughout the world.
