The C-1U is a digital home recording 
or podcasting enthusiast’s dream come 
true. This professional quality condenser 
microphone is identical to the acclaimed 
BEHRINGER C-1 mic with one awesome 
diff erence: it’s has a built-in USB interface 
so you can be ready to record faster than 
ever, and with minimal preparation and 
equipment. Just plug it into your computer 
and start recording!
What is a USB Condenser Microphone?
The primary type of microphone 
used in recording studios and radio 
stations, condenser microphones are 
the ideal choice for capturing vocals and 
acoustic instruments. Unlike a dynamic 
microphone, a condenser microphone 
collects sound from throughout an 
environment such as a room, rather 
than only picking up what’s happening 
directly in front of it. It is capable of much 
capturing much more detail with wider, 
fl atter frequency response. 
Trouble is, conventional condenser 
microphones aren’t made to interface 
with a computer — you have to provide 
a microphone preamplifi er and an 
analog-to-USB interface.
But the C-1U has a built-in USB interface 
that derives the needed power directly 
from your computer’s USB input and 
requires no special drivers. Just plug in and 
start recording your masterpiece!
Does Awesome Sound Come Any Easier?
The short answer is no. Unlike most 
other USB microphones, you won’t need to 
download any additional drivers to begin 
using the C-1U right out of the box—it even 
works with Vista! 
You also get an extensive software 
package with Audacity for recording, 
Kristal Audio Engine for editing and
