Good starting point - Reviews Samson Technologies G-Track

The Samson G-Track seems to be an all in one solution for recording for someone who is really one a tight budget. It is a large diaphragm condenser microphone with a 3 position switch for mono , stereo and computer monitoring. It is all powered via USB and it comes with a desktop stand. Don’t expect to be able to record high quality stuff that is master ready. You will not get that quality with the G-Track, it is more for demo purpose only. The neat thing about it is, you can switch the interface of the microphone to record instruments or vocals. This is like a home studio’s songwriter and producers dream. It can do a little bit of everything and it comes with Cakewalk Sonar LE so it has everything you need right in the box to start recording your songs right away. Setting it up is very easy and takes no effort at all.


OVERALL OPINION

It does come with a small manual, and you don’t have to use Sonar if you don’t want to it just comes with it, it is a perfect match for Garage Band on a mac too. Or you can use it in any of the DAW’s that you want just like it is a regular microphone. On the face or front of the microphone you have 3 knobs one for volume, one for instrument, and one for microphone. The Samson G-Track is really an all in one solution to recording at home. It only cost 119.99 and cuts out the need to purchase other gear like a mixer or interface because it is a USB microphone. This is a must have for a beginner who is getting into writing songs and recording. You will eventually need to upgrade and get a decent set up to be taken seriously because the quality will not get you to where you want to be, but it’s a great starting point!
