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 capturing much more 
detail with a wider, fl atter frequency response. 
But conventional condenser microphones 
aren’t designed to interface with a computer 
– you also have to provide a microphone 
preamplifi er and an analog-to-USB interface. 
The C-1U features 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!
