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.
