Mic offers XLR and USB connections
Samson on Wednesday introduced the Q2U Recording Pack which includes a microphone, HP20 headphones, and other accessories. The Q2U dynamic mic features both XLR and USB outputs, allowing users to simultaneously connect with a computer and other gear for live performances and recording. The mic offers a cardioid pickup pattern and an integrated A/D converter for 16-bit, 48kHz sampling.
The Q2U integrates a 3.5mm headphone jack for zero-latency monitoring during recording, while buttons near the bottom of the mic can be used to control the volume.
The Q2U Recording Pack is now available for $90. Along with the Mic and headphones, the package also includes a mic clip, desktop stand, USB and XLR cables, and Cakewalk Music Creator.
