Samson Q2U Recording and Podcasting Pack with USB/XLR Microphone

The Samson Q2U Recordings Pack includes a USB / XLR handheld dynamic microphone and monitoring headphones. The Q2U Recording Pack is a cost-effective solution for the stage, rehearsal studios and project recording applications. The microphone features both XLR and USB outputs that enable flexible digital recording to any Mac and Windows based computer workstation, while simultaneously connected to any analog mixer, preamplifier or PA system.

An on/off switch controls the signal at the XLR output and its cardioid polar pattern eliminates noise and feedback at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The Q2U Recording Pack delivers pristine audio quality with a wide frequency response and 44.1 / 48kHz, 16-bit resolution. The microphone is completely plug-and-play and there are no drivers to load.

One Mic for Stage, Studio and On the Go

Samson's Q2U combines the convenience of digital and analog audio capture into one dynamic microphone. With XLR and USB outputs, the Q2U is the first choice for home/studio and mobile recording, as well as stage performance. The Q2U is simple to setup and outshines microphones that cost more than twice the price. It comes with a mic clip, desktop tripod stand with extension piece, windscreen, XLR cable and USB cable... A package with everything you need.

Make Connections

Overall, 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.

Podcast Perfection

If 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

The Q2U is a great mic for home recording. Its dynamic capsule is great for miking vocals, instruments and amplifiers. Onboard, high-quality analog-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.

Go Mobile

Taking your podcast or recording on the road? The Q2U can be used with iPhones and iPads via Apple's Lightning to USB Camera Adapter or Android devices via a Host OTG cable. In addition, the Q2U's rugged handheld body is perfect for capturing interviews at press conferences, live events or on the street.

Accessories Included

For 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.

Samson Sound Deck Software

Available as a paid download, the Samson Sound Deck Noise Cancellation Software brings noise cancellation technology for enhanced VoIP communication and computer recording to your Q2U. Sound Deck uses Digital Noise Reduction algorithms to minimize recurring background noise from loud environments, ensuring only clean, natural sounding vocals are received by your family, friends or business associates.
