Thank you for this video. I found it very helpful in setting up my new Logitech webcam 920. I also have the Samson Go mic which works perfectly with it. 🙂 YaY! Now I can see and hear my autoharp when I record. 🙂

TheLTGamer says:

Hey dude I know it was a while ago but can you help me with my Samson go mic. I don’t have a Mac and the levels on my windows pc no matter what I do I can hear some sort of noise in the background kind of like a constant SH in the back. Please please help me I really need to know what to do. Here in Australia this mic is 73 bucks and I can’t find any mic for cheaper.

Nitin Shukla says:

Best comparison in such 6:30 time limit

PB32/NL16 says:

The Hidden Hand says:

IT’s obvious this guy is shilling for Samson. All 3 of the USB mic test vids I’ve watched he has the Samson beating out all including the Audio Technica & MXL’s. Not believable.
