Microphone Review: Samson C01UPRO

I just replaced my Blue Snowball microphone with this Samson C01UPRO microphone. First of all, I’ve been very impressed with the quality of this mic. Most noteworthy, it cost less than my previous Blue mic coming in at under $100. Since sound design in game development can really make a difference and like video production, it is is often overlooked and can consequently result in an inferior game experience.
