NAMM 2014: Samson’s Go Mic Direct -
Go Mic Direct is the ideal computer-based solution for capturing stunning audio on-the-go. Perfect for podcasting, recording music and sound for YouTube videos, Go Mic Direct’s range of functionality also compliments Skype, FaceTime and voice recognition software applications.
Go Mic Direct offers convenient plug-and-play operation, as its custom, ultra-compact design plugs directly into your Mac/PC’s USB port. The mic can even be a permanent fixture on your computer, as it won’t block any other USB ports. In addition, Go Mic Direct is compatible with iPads and iPhones (4S and later) using Apple’s Lightning USB Camera Adapter or Camera Connection Kit (30-pin), making it a great tool for mobile podcasts, popular speech to text software and field recording.
Go Mic Direct can be used with Samson’s Sound Deck audio software, available as a free download from Samson’s website. Sound Deck expands the functionality of the Go Mic Direct by enabling incredible features, including digital noise reduction to eliminate unwanted repetitive background noises from your recordings and communication. The software allows the Go Mic Direct to switch from an omnidirectional pickup pattern to a Figure-8 (bidirectional) pickup pattern, which is ideal for cancelling out disruptive noises such as typing and computer fan buzz. This paves the way for high quality VoIP communication.
In addition, Go Mic Direct utilizes two microphone capsules for increased sound coverage. Plus, with an impressive 20Hz–18kHz frequency response and high quality 16-bit/44.1kHz resolution, you can be sure you’re getting professional audio specs in a design small enough to fit comfortably in your pocket.
