I just bought a Samson C01U Mic that works in the USB port.so far I've not been able to make it work.  I have a Sound Blaster 24 bit card..  I left the Audiow playback devices at WDM:SB Audigy 2.  and I changed Audio recording devices to : WDM: Samson C01U then I get an

Error Message: Error opening wave input device.  make sure that the sampling frequency and the recording format set in the dialog box that appears clicking on the Setting button on the recording vumeter are supported by the soundcard.

 I think I've got it installed in the computer but does anyone know what I can do or check to get it to work with the system

does the samson have some control panel software where you can adjust the sampling rate and such? maybe the mic defaults to 16-bit/44.1Hz, and you still have n-track set to 24-bit?

Looking at the samson page:
16-bit sample resolution
Supports 8 kHz, 11.025 kHz, 22.05 kHz, 44.1 kHz, and 48 kHz sampling rates
USB low-power device - draws 26 mA => 130 mW. In suspend mode 0.3 mA => 1.5 mW.
Frequency response: 40 Hz to 18 kHz

it works with the standard windos xp drivers, BUT, if you want advanced control over ASIO and WDM, you need to download a software called soft-pre. It is here:
http://www.samsontech.com/software/Samson_SoftPre_Setup_1.0.19.zip

luck!

Are you running Win XP service pack 2? The applet won't work otherwise.

I'm assuming that you have been recording at 24-bit in the past, since you have a 24-bit soundcard. Is that right?

Apparently, the Samson mic is only 16-bit. So, have you changed n-Track to record at 16 bits now instead of 24? You can do that by clicking on the little hammer icon on the Record meter.

Also, the Samson can only record at up to 48kHz, so make sure n-Track is set to 48kHz or 44.1kHz. You can do that under File -> Settings -> Preferences.

Sorry if this is an insultingly simple suggestion, but it's good to make sure about the basics first.

That Mic was reveiwed this month in recording magazine (feb 2006). In the article it said that this mic will not work with any soft ware that requires a propietary audio driver.

I don't think n-Track requires any proprietary drivers.  It works with Delta 1010s, MOTUs, and my Sound Blaster 16!  Although I'm not sure what proprietary driver would mean exactly.  Aren't most drivers "proprietary"?
