Samson G-Track Pro USB Mic & Interface Review / Test November 29, 2019 100 By Kailee Schamberger CategoryArticles BlogTagsaudio Audio Interface bandrew condenser Demo G-Track mic microphone podcast podcastage pro review samson scott sound studio Test USB 100 Comments Clinchin 2k says: February 15, 2018 at 3:43 am I just bought this mic but I think its defected because I sound deeper than I usually do this is very frustrating because it was new I did many test on audacity and voice recording aslo I have to unplug and plug in to make things sound normal if I don't unplug and plug in any audio I hear will sound deep or heavy Reply PumpkinSeed17 says: February 16, 2018 at 1:44 am Wow, what a wonderful review, especially when compared to your prior review of the original G-Track GM1U. This one sounds much richerdeeper (the original has a thin sound), more sensitivelouder, and has a much quieter preamp! Too bad the omni pattern sounds badweird and the bi-polar drops some of the richness. Great job Samson, and Great job, Podcastage! Thank you! 🙂 Subscribed 😉 Reply pickle jar says: March 1, 2018 at 8:14 pm where is the serial number on the mic Reply czdaniel1 says: March 6, 2018 at 4:11 am 5:08 — That sounds like a surprisingly good Room-Mic Reply yourmomjay says: March 8, 2018 at 1:05 am I cant find the serial number on mine :/ Reply Vorp says: March 9, 2018 at 3:29 am Hey bro can you recommend me a cheap boom arm that can hold this and a good pop filter pls. I was gonna go with the blue yeti but I think this is better. It will cost me alot more but it would be my first mic ever so if you have a better recommendation for an upcoming youtuber and streamer that would be great. Thank you and i love your videos Reply Lionheart Roar says: March 16, 2018 at 8:16 am Good review..its a clear mic but i find it a bit tinny..almost no bottom end. Reply illestmuzik says: March 17, 2018 at 3:40 pm hi please answer. is the instrument jack on the back of this a stereo input and when recording in 2 track mode does it record mic track 1 in mono and and inst track 2 in stereo for a total of 3 channels? thank you Reply Rj Aks says: March 20, 2018 at 11:24 am Hello I am using behringer c1 u and also watch your tutorial about that but I still have low volume issue and pop although I am using pop filter Reply أبو الزبير الأحمدي says: March 21, 2018 at 8:56 am Thank you, Nice ReviewPlease, Can you tell what is the bestRode NT-USBor G-Track ProAlso, What is main difference between them? Reply EntropicRussian says: March 22, 2018 at 3:55 am @podcastage I was wondering how this mic stacks up against studio grade microphones such as the Rode nt1a? I like the price and versatility of this product but I would like to have a top notch product if I am putting money and time into it. For professional use am I being too cheap, or can I get away with this without it sounding budget? Reply Carstati says: March 27, 2018 at 9:25 pm I found my mic! Thanks for always making great reviews! I was back and forth between not spending a lot on the Neewer NW-3U or investing in this and getting better audio. After listening to them both side-by-side I decided this is the mic for me! Everything about it just screams "YES!" 😀 Reply Riki LivingRoom says: March 31, 2018 at 5:19 am Has anyone been able to find a shock mount that fits the Samson G-Track Pro? I've tried out a few from Samson, and the G Track Pro is too wide for all of them. Reply Krystal Marie says: April 3, 2018 at 10:00 am Which is better for vocals? Samson G-track Pro or Audio Technica AT2035 Reply ed man says: April 11, 2018 at 4:01 pm Can you use the LINE IN input for other external inputs ( Dynamic Mic, Mixers, Aux, etc…) ? Reply GentlemanNietzsche says: April 26, 2018 at 10:23 pm Can't find a serial number with the mic, rendering the software it is bundled with useless. Reply Honk Honkler says: May 2, 2018 at 5:11 am Almost everything Samson makes is great for the price. I bought a pair of their studio reference headphones fully expecting to be disappointed. I wasn't. Best cans I've heard south of $150. They only cost $30. Their dynamic mic with the interchangeable capsules is fucking awesome at $40 as well. Reply Robin B. says: June 9, 2018 at 5:25 pm Blue Yeti Pro vs. G-Track Pro. Which one is better if the price is same? Reply Tree Trim says: June 17, 2018 at 6:58 pm I bought the G track Pro it didn't come with the microphone stand bracket only came with the desktop stand am I missing something Reply One Flame says: June 20, 2018 at 1:51 am According to Samson's email reply to me today – this microphone is NOT actually a 24bit / 96kHz microphone. On the off chance that this is a technical support training issue, could you please confirm (in windows sound) that it is actually being detected at 24bit / 96kHz, either single or two channel? There also do not appear to be any kernel mode drivers. Reply Serendipity Seeker says: June 27, 2018 at 6:28 am Thank you for this review,I gifted this ,I was looking for something all in one and easy to use. This helped me.I would recommend this.The sticker is on the box outside. Reply PenguinoPlays304 says: June 27, 2018 at 6:38 am this helped me with my keyboard noise problem 😀 Reply Anto says: July 6, 2018 at 1:59 pm Damn, that was very helpfull. Thanks alot!!! Reply Walter Liao says: July 8, 2018 at 4:34 pm Hi, would you please tell me where the mic is made, in China? Thanks! Reply chateau920 says: July 8, 2018 at 11:27 pm Do you know where to find the serial number on the G Track Pro…. Cant find it……Cant download software without serial number… Please help. Thank you. Reply Chris Ruston says: July 22, 2018 at 10:06 am #Podcastage Does it have a high pass filter in it or does it comes with any software ? Reply diaxx says: August 2, 2018 at 2:54 pm Any shock mounts you know for this microphone? Reply Javier Fernandez says: August 5, 2018 at 12:59 am Would this work well for miking an Amp? Reply gunshy31 says: August 27, 2018 at 5:05 pm I really like your review.. people are considering that I should do an ASMR videos … and with this review I'm considering purchasing this mic.. Also are you a Greenday fan? lol.. your playing guitar and vocal singing has a similarity to them.. I like it. Thanks again. Reply m0nTyy says: August 30, 2018 at 8:34 am Hi I purchased this microphone and expected the adaptor to put it on a boom arm in the box but sadly it didn’t not come supplied. Any information at all on what adaptor I need to purchase as I cannot find the information anywhere? Cheers Reply Tesfall Gaming says: September 12, 2018 at 11:47 pm Lol. He almost fell over 1:09 Reply Crete23 says: October 2, 2018 at 2:09 am Can it work with an iPad for recording guitar? Reply HansVGinkel says: October 2, 2018 at 2:36 pm There is no adapter for a normal microphone stand in the box.Some websites have a picture of it, but it's not in de box and I can't find a shop where to buy it. Reply Thinking Mom says: October 4, 2018 at 1:49 am How do I connect Samson G-Track Pro to the Lumix DMC G85M? Please respond. Reply Submittress TheCamModel says: October 8, 2018 at 2:55 am I just bought this and was so lost on how to use it. Thank you! Reply drrobotnikmeanbeanma says: October 15, 2018 at 4:57 am Can a 5 volt phone charger cut this mic on so you can hear it ? Reply MrAnimater says: October 18, 2018 at 2:10 am Mine didn't come with a Motu card but the box says it's included WTF so how do I use it!!! Reply Mike Clark says: October 20, 2018 at 4:02 am I was trying to evaluate this microphone at Best Buy and could not decide if I should spring for it, but your review prompted me to go ahead and go for it. Wow! The audio quality is much better than I was expecting! You know how Amazon usually has a better price than the store? Well in this case Amazon wanted about $40 more that Best Buy, so I got it at BB for $99.99. Thanks for your review, which was excellent! Subscribed! Reply Reicter says: November 2, 2018 at 9:23 am Hey! I need some big help! I got that microfone, but the holder for micstands wasnt included, where can I get one for the G-Track pro? Reply Firestickthatshit says: November 3, 2018 at 7:57 am I don't like the treble boost. Is there a mic you can recommend that gives a richer sound? I am used to using a handheld mic while emceeing, so this is definitely a different sound. I want a desk mic with gain control that sounds full, not tinny & has a usb interface. I'm looking for something like an old Turner +3 desk mic with a manual key, like what I used to use for HAM radio…anyone? Reply Qurry says: November 19, 2018 at 10:16 pm Почему название на русском? Reply Qurry says: November 19, 2018 at 10:21 pm Why russian? Do you know russian? Sorry me, i am rassian man and bad know english Reply Fabulously Terrifying says: November 22, 2018 at 10:35 pm I want this mic so bad. Reply Latvian National Socialist says: November 23, 2018 at 2:20 am What is the monitoring for? Reply Jeremy McCant says: November 27, 2018 at 4:17 pm This, the audio technica at2020, or Rode Nt usb? I'm really looking for an upgrade from my blue snowball mic. Reply Frank Samet says: December 2, 2018 at 8:09 pm I’m interested in getting one for music and vocals. While this video shows a microphone stand adaptor is included, reviews of those purchasing them find they are not. Reply Asrar Chowdhury says: December 4, 2018 at 4:29 pm Thanks. Nice educative review. Love from Bangladesh. Reply SammyVOfficial says: December 22, 2018 at 7:58 am Is the instrument input stereo or mono only? Reply tomZvoices says: December 24, 2018 at 2:33 pm Never had a problem with my Audio Technica 2500. But beware the Samson G track pro. I just bought it, and I'm pretty confused. The stand that comes with it does not adjust for height, and if you use a different one, it could fall over cuz it's real heavy. If you try singing to a background track, everything sounds all slowed down, and your clipping light on the Mic will go off like crazy while recording on Audacity. Any suggestions on how to fix this, or should I just take it back to Best Buy? Reply deadhearts official says: December 29, 2018 at 1:52 am i have this mic, and it feels like i really need a pop filter compared to this video? Am i using the mic wrong? I can really really hear the air and everything Reply Its Shaba says: January 1, 2019 at 6:18 am Mine did not come with a mount, I don't want to use a shock mount as I use mine for streaming and that would interfere with visuals. Can't find one online to replace it and don't know what size the threads are to buy one aftermarket. Any help would be great!

Reply noe roman says: January 29, 2019 at 1:43 am Hey I’m having problems with mine. I just got mine yesterday and I set everything up but it’s lagging really bad. There’s like a delay between when I talk and what I hear in the headphones. I need help. Reply Bozo Alex says: February 9, 2019 at 9:30 pm Does anyone know of a boom arm/ shock mount that is compatible with the weight and other specs of this g track pro mic? Reply Bruh Moment says: February 19, 2019 at 3:51 am My soul left my body when he said 'doobly-doo' Reply Arved Bohn says: February 23, 2019 at 10:23 am Short question: Could this microphone handle extreme vocals like throat singing/screaming/growling?

Reply james gayler says: March 31, 2019 at 2:11 am I bought this before watching the review. Glad I did. More features than the yeti's I saw at best buy. Reply Zephyr Vibez says: April 5, 2019 at 4:49 am is anyone having an issue with fuzzy static that is super loud? Reply Brian Farndon says: April 8, 2019 at 6:40 am This mic sounds great. Shame it’s just USB. And the Preamp is a bit noisy. Reply burntby hellfire says: May 1, 2019 at 3:08 pm if a line-in is plugged into the 1/4" input, can it be heard through the headphone jack?.. for example, i have a surround sound headphone device.. could i plug that into the 1/4" input and hear the game audio through the headphone interface on the mic?.. if i can do that, since im also looking for a headphone amp.. then sold Reply LIL REAPER says: May 5, 2019 at 11:11 pm Is there an audio interface input? Reply Luke says: May 21, 2019 at 1:53 pm Damn… I just want something that's USB, has good background noise cancelling (for keyboards, mice etc) and that has a mute button, how hard could that be eh? Freaking impossible…. >_< Reply Glaudefrans says: June 8, 2019 at 2:27 pm Thank you Sir! Reply Coyote Man says: June 8, 2019 at 9:59 pm Trying to see if I should get this or the AT2020 for streaming/videos Reply PacSmacks says: June 18, 2019 at 4:28 am I’m trying to find a good streaming mic that won’t pick up my fan/ac noise in the background. The fan is usually set to low but my ac I have no control over its noise. It gets super hot in my room so it’s a no no to turn any of this off. I wanted to get this mic but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to adjust it so it’s less sensitive while streaming. Any tips or advice would be very appreciated Reply PacSmacks says: June 18, 2019 at 4:38 am You should do a fan test in the background to show how well it can limit noises like that and how far away stuff like that is what worries me especially when your spending money on it. Reply c1rcu1tn3rd says: June 22, 2019 at 5:32 am Mine did not come with a microphone mount for a stand. Reply Adam Bischoff says: June 23, 2019 at 9:13 pm People who are defending the Yeti are not paying attention to Samsons specs. Compare the two ans Gtrack wins.Samson records with better tones and its great for singing. Reply Maclarens says: June 26, 2019 at 8:25 am thx for subtitles and great job!

Really like this mic, and your videos are very thorough. This mic has a very nice sound quality I like better than the yeti, it is very present and crisp when you speak close to it. My only concern is the background noise. I have an open room. What would be a better mic in terms of background noise cancellation? I want an all-around mic for making videos, gaming on discord, possible music in the future. I also want to be able to stand it on my table and not let all the keystrokes go through while gaming. I also move around a bit while sitting at my desk. If desk standing is not good, then what arm would you recommend for this mic? Reply Flamesphere says: September 28, 2019 at 4:29 pm is there a need for pop filter? Reply Mr Yellow says: October 6, 2019 at 7:56 am What is your record program? Reply Michael Lara says: October 12, 2019 at 5:57 am At 1:10–1:14 you sound like a tv commercial ad on rick and Morty with that line. Hey, does the Gtrack pro fit in a samson sp01 shock mount? Also, if i will just be using the mic for speaking (ex: livestreaming games while speaking/commenting) do i need a specific setting for the instrument knob? Hope for your response. Reply Jaiden FTL says: October 16, 2019 at 10:24 pm does anyone know if we can use this to record music ?

The cable doesn't go all the way into the port so if I don't have it just right, anyone I talk to sounds like Berry White. I used it for a show yesterday and I sounded really deep. It's a shame I might have to exchange it cause it's a nice mic. Reply Jack B says: November 14, 2019 at 9:29 pm Thank you for this review of this mic. This is by far the most thorough evaluation I have seen thus far on YouTube and I appreciate your due diligence on showing different scenarios. I am planning on doing streaming playing music and now I have a really good idea of how things sound with this mic.
