    Ok, finally it's happened.
    I don't know when, or where, or even HOW, but it has.
    There are too many kids on here, who are BROKE.
    They know they need a condenser, but can't afford the pre, AND the soundcard.

    Well bitches, Samson has you covered.

    Introducing -insert the classic DUN DUN DUN-

    Samson CO1usb condenser mic.
    http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/C01usb/

    $79.97

    Needs NO pre-amp, you just plug it into your USB port and go.

    Goddamnit...this is going to make shit too easy.

    The more I think about this, the more mad I get.
    You can spend $99 on an E-Mu 0404, $79.97 on this mic, and get a set of headphones, and make music.
    Even bums on the street can hustle for change for a year, and start rappin...wtf lol.

    Oh well....-sigh-

    -runs out to buy one- lmao

    I'd say it will be worth the price, nothing more, the old CO1 wasn't that great, but this is powered by USB...how the fuck lol.

    I've been eyeing this mic. Should be pretty decent. I mean Benefit recorded on $17 equipment and it turned out pretty damn good.

    When is the release date?

    Can't tell you, because it's not actually out right now.
    Ever used a C01? Thats the same shit, but powered by USB, unless they changed something.

    oh and this also solves the problem for broke mc's with a laptop...

    they dont have to buy an expensive usb soundcard, they can just plug the mic right in usb.

    Yea, for the price, it's ok, which is sub $100, but comparing it to a KSM 32? No way, compare it to a Studio Projects B1, it's better than the MXL990 though.
