or podcasting enthusiast’s dream come 
true. This professional quality condenser 
microphone is identical to the acclaimed 
BEHRINGER C-1 mic with one awesome 
difference: 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, 
flatter frequency response. 
Trouble is, conventional condenser 
microphones aren’t made to interface 
with a computer — you have to provide 
a microphone preamplifier 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 
multitracking, Podifier uploading software 
and PodNova downloading software. 
It works like this: Connect the mic to 
your PC or Mac. Load Audacity and save 
your recording onto your hard drive.
