G-Tracking from Concept to Creation

Samson's G-Track is the total solution for taking you from inspiration to finished tracks. As the world's first USB condenser microphone with a built-in audio interface and mixer, G-Track allows for simultaneous stereo input and gain control of vocals and guitar, bass, or keyboard while also providing switchable stereo, mono, and computer monitoring through an on board headphone output. In addition, G-Track features a large 19mm diaphragm configured in a supercardioid pickup pattern to provide a smooth, flat frequency response.

G-Track is fully USB bus-powered and compliant with any Mac or PC computer. The unit works brilliantly with any DAW software program and even comes with Cakewalk's Sonar LE digital audio workstation software. For additional adaptability and convenience, G-Track is bundled with a heavy-duty mic stand, as well as Audio I/O and USB cables.

Though ideal for the traveling musician or the project studio, G-Track's versatile functionality can be applied to create ideal solutions for anyone who records audio, particularly podcasters, educators and business professionals.

Record Vocals and Instruments at Once
For musicians, the convergence of computer and audio technologies has established the home/mobile studio as a credible alternative to the traditional recording facility. G-Track allows you to record vocals like a standard USB mic, or two mono instruments through the line/instrument input or a mix of one mono instrument and vocal. Now singer/songwriters can directly record vocals and instruments quickly and easily with one device, making G-Track a must have for any songwriter's home studio. And its ease of use and portability allows you to take it anywhere inspiration may strike you.

Perfect Your Podcasts
As podcasting has evolved, a need for impeccable communication quality and production convenience has been established. Proven in satisfying these criteria, the all-in-one G-Track USB condenser microphone is a podcaster's dream come true. Given a simple USB connection straight into your Mac or PC computer, it provides your podcasts with unparalleled performance in audio recording, as well as extreme ease of data mixing, transfer and broadcast. Use the included desktop stand to provide your broadcast studio with a more professional aesthetic. With G-Track affordable for all, the voices of millions of web journalists are empowered to establish a discernable identity in the congested world of podcasting.

Gets an A+ for Adaptability
With computer-based technology becoming a vital part of education, G-Track is a must among students, professors and administrators. In addition to podcasting, G-Track can elevate the educational values of Skype, VoIP and screen capture-type software programs like Camtasia Studio and NaturallySpeaking. These applications, all of which can be used to teach, study, and/or catalogue academic materials in-person or from afar, are dependent upon the superior degree of audio capture delivered by G-Track. So, whether you're teaching an online course, reviewing a past lecture or studying for a big exam, G-Track helps to make education a more accessible and interactive experience.

G-Track Means Business
G-Track provides answers for those business professionals in need of revitalizing their corporate communications. Regardless of the specific application (web design, multimedia presentations, company meetings, corporate events, etc.), G-Track's features allow for the easy, cost-effective recording of studio-quality audio clips to be used to invoke interest among internal stakeholders or event attendees.

Add It On
Samson offers a collection of pro-level accessories (all sold separately) that can be used to further enhance the recording experience of the G-Track USB condenser microphone, including the PS01 microphone pop filter and the SP04 optical shockmount. The PS01's nylon mesh screen will reduce vocal popping and sibilance from affecting the performance of your G-Track. It also comes equipped with a universal mic stand mounting bracket and a flexible metal gooseneck for convenient placement. Lastly, the SP04 provides G-Track with a reliable shockmount system to absorb unwanted vibrations and disturbances.

Polar Patterns
The polar pattern of a microphone determines how sensitive it is to receiving sounds as they arrive at different angles.
Cardioid
Transducer Type
The transducer type is the manner in which the audio signal is converted into an electrical signal.
Condenser
Address
The configuration of the capsule determining on which side the microphone is sung or spoken into.
Side
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
20 - 16000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
40 ± 3 dB/Pa dB
Signal-to-Noise Ratio
This spec compares the strength of the signal to the level of background noise. A higher value indicates less background noise.
not specified by manufacturer
Maximum Sound Pressure Level
This is the maximum sound pressure level that the microphone is capable of accepting and transferring into an electrical signal.
132 dB
Output Impedance
This is the amount of impedance that the microphone allows.
Digital
Connection Type
This is the manner in which the microphone connects to the source unit. For wired microphones, this is the connector that directly connects the microphone to the mixer (or other input source unit).
