Samson - 'Q2U'
Recording and Podcasting Pack
USB/XLR Dynamic Microphone
with Accessories Samson’s ‘Q2U’ marries together the ease of use of digital and analogue audio capture into one, sleek and highly versatile microphone. Featuring both XLR and USB outputs, the Q2U is the perfect choice for home/studio and mobile recording, alongside stage performance. Samson’s ‘Q2U’ is wonderfully easy to setup and outperforms microphones which cost more than double the price. The ‘Q2U’ ships with a mic clip, desktop tripod stand with extension piece, windscreen, XLR cable and USB cable.
The ‘Q2U’ delivers all the tools you need to start creating your audio projects, right out of the box.
• Outstanding vocal mic for podcasting
• Desktop stand turns any surface into a studio
• Die-cast construction and metal grille stand up to punishment
• USB and XLR operation allows you to use the mic with a mixer or plug into your DAW
usb/xlr - your choiceOverall, the Q2U provides significantly improved audio over a headset or your computer's internal microphone. The Q2U can be connected directly to your computer or mobile device via USB, or plugged directly into a mixer or audio interface with an XLR cable.
You can also utilize both connections simultaneously for recording a live event or performance.
3.5mm headphone outIf you're looking to start a new podcast, the Q2U is the best choice for creating a production studio on a budget. Whether you're recording a solo broadcast on your laptop or multi-person interviews through a mixing desk, the Q2U delivers high-quality audio effortlessly with minimal setup.
It even has a 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone output to monitor the audio you're capturing, as well as the audio from your computer.
A Stud in the Studio
perfect for vocalsThe Q2U is a great mic for home recording. Its dynamic capsule is great for miking vocals, instruments and amplifiers. Onboard, high-quality analogue-to-digital converters provide excellent audio reproduction.
The Q2U's cardioid (unidirectional) polar pattern picks up sound from in front of the mic, while rejecting unwanted sound from the rear and sides. This minimizes the amount of ambient/room noise that is captured on your recordings.
50W A/B ampEach driver has its own dedicated amplifier. The 50W A/B amp is responsible for the X-ART tweeter, whilst the midwoofer is being powered by a 100W PWM amp. The front panel has a power switch and a control for the volume that maintains the volume setting independently from the on/off switch.
On the back panel you’ll find extra controls: gain for the high frequencies (± 4dB) and two shelf filters for high and low frequencies.
all the tools you need
to create pro podcastsFor convenient placement in front of your computer, the Q2U comes with a desktop tripod stand and extension piece. For use with this desktop stand or with any standard microphone stand, a mic clip is also included. A windscreen is also provided to minimize wind noise and plosives such as P-Pops. A 2.25m USB cable and 3m XLR cable complete the Q2U Recording and Podcasting Pack, including everything you need to get started on your next project.
