Samson’s Q2U Brings Digital and Analog Together in One Microphone

January 25, 2009 by Mobile Beat

Hauppauge, NY – Samson has designed the Q2U as a high-quality microphone to meet all live sound and digital recording needs. A dynamic handheld that features both an XLR output and a USB I/O, the Q2U can plug directly into a live sound console or any computer with a USB input.

Take the Q2U to a gig for an exceptional live performance then take it home to record some new ideas right to a computer. And the microphone’s on/off switch controls the XLR output, allowing anyone to perform in a live setting and record to a nearby computer or laptop simultaneously.

“Whether your passion is recording or performing, this mic has you covered,” says Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson Technologies. “And it sounds great in either application. It’s also compatible with any computer based digital audio workstation, so your recordings can be developed with additional control. It may just be the only mic you’ll ever need.”

This revolutionary microphone also features a built-in 3.5mm stereo headphone jack output with volume control for no-latency monitoring during recording. Plus, a cardioid pickup pattern and a high-quality A/D converter with a 16-bit, 48kHz sampling rate ensure the sound reproduction in both live and recording applications is clear, detailed and accurate. The Q2U includes USB and XLR cables, a mic clip and Cakewalk® Music Creator.

“The Q2U really takes versatility to a new level,” says Wilder. “It brings the worlds of live performance and digital recording together in one exceptional microphone.” See the new Q2U at South Hall 4 35528.
