USB/iOS Broadcast Microphone
Samson - 'Satellite'
Broadcasting PerfectionThe Samson Satellite is a broadcast-quality USB/iOS microphone built for recording high-quality audio on your computer, iPhone or iPad. As an vital part to any streamer, podcaster or content creator's recording setup.
The Satellite has plug-and-play operation so it is quick and easy to set up. Including 24-bit/96kHz audio, three selectable pickups patterns and a fold-back leg design in an easily transportable package.
• Selectable cardioid (unidirectional), bidirectional and omnidirectional pickup pattern
• Ideal for streaming, podcasting, gaming, VoIP, voiceover work and recording music
• 1/8" stereo headphone output with level control for zero-latency monitoring
• Plugs directly into Mac, PC, iPhone or iPad
Encapsulate The Sound
Astonishing ClarityThe Samson Satellite USB Broadcast microphone features two premium 16mm condenser capsules that record vocal warmth and clarity with a smooth, precise frequency response. An internal shockmount isolates the capsules from the body of the microphone, meaning handling noise or sounds caused by vibrations and table rumble are no longer an issue.
Versatile RecordingWith a choice of three selectable pickup patterns, this mic is ideal for handling a range of recording needs. The cardioid setting is perfect for streaming, vocal performances, single host podcasts or Skype.
The omnidirectional setting is best suited for conference calls or multi-person interviews where many people are speaking from different directions. The figure-8 (bidirectional) setting is perfect for 2-person interviews where they are facing each other.
Direct MonitoringThe Samson Satellite offers zero-latency direct monitoring from its 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone jack. There is no delay between the audio you recording and the audio you hearing. The Monitor switch lets you turn off direct monitoring whilst allowing you to hear the audio back from your computer.
