A must-have for anyone that travels and uses a laptop.
The affordable GoMic from Samson
.

Much smaller than your laptops power supply – the GoMic is ready for travel.

With a built-in zero-latency headphone amp along with omni and cardioid electret elements, the GoMic gives a lot of bang for the buck. It won’t replace a studio microphone, but it will deliver surprisingly good results as a substitute for your laptops built-in mic. Many people are even using the GoMic to record acoustic guitar and piano.

Keep in mind that I purposely left the GoMic levels low. A USB mic will require normalization and processing on the back end. Keeping levels conservative during USB recording helps guard against flat-topping.

Have a look and listen to the little mic that delivers on value.

The small mic that thinks it’s big. The GoMic from Samson.

The amazingly portable LITTLE electret mic that can slip in your shirt pocket!

I’ve been calling (and bugging) people on Skype all week with this gem. We have a very cool interview coming up in the next few days with a radio/voiceover legend. I thought; why not do the interview on Skype using the GoMic?

Coming very soon…

Shure PG42USB Microphone

The Shure PG42USB vocal microphone.

A few weeks ago, I tried the Shure PG27USB and was very impressed. Not only did it sound great, but the 27USB marked the first time I felt comfortable creating content on a USB mic.

Of course, I was curious to try out the big brother to the 27USB – the PG42USB. Would it sound better, worse or just the same?

The PG42USB comes standard with a solid, Shure-branded flight case and a custom shock mount. Nice touch. As well, you’ll find a generous (almost 10′) length USB cable.

What sets the 42USB apart from the rest is the sound. Just the right amount of ‘air’ in the highs, mid-range articulation and a smooth low-end come together, making the 42USB a great choice for voice over and vocals.

The audience has been asking for an unprocessed demo, …and here it is! Have a look, listen and let me know what you think.

Street Price at Post Time: $249
