    Default Samson G-Track USB mic doesn't work in DAW

    The other day I bought a Samson G-Track GM1U USB microphone. I connected it to my computer and Windows XP immediately recognized and installed it. It works in Windows, I can use the Windows recorder to record and playback.
    But of course, that's not what I bought it for. I use Cubase SX to record, but Cubase does not recognize the USB device at all. It is just not listed in Device Setup - VST Inputs, only my soundcard is there.

    I use ASIO4ALL as ASIO driver in Cubase. The USB device is recognized by ASIO4ALL and is listed as 'running' in the panel. However, when I start up Cubase and check the ASIO4ALL panel again, the device's status is changed to 'beyond logic' (meaning it doesn't work). When I close Cubase, it's listed as 'running' again.
    Also Cubase freezes frequently.

    I really have no clue what could be the problem.. anyone?

    Why are you using ASIO4ALL with Cubase? Just curious. Are you the stock soundcard?

    I'd ditch ASIO4ALL first and see if Cubase will work with the Samson G-Track. Then go from there.

    I've never used a USB mic before so really I'm just guessing.

    I was using ASIO4ALL because I had some problems with latency with the default ASIO driver.
    I switched to back to the default ASIO driver, was able to enable the USB device and now it works. So thanks!

    The first question is: Does Windows pick it up? If so, you should be able to add it under Devices. Then you'll need to press F4 to route it properly.

    As JB mentioned a few days ago, TaylorMade offered THP the opportunity to do a long term review of its new discount golf R9 irons(ishiner). I was lucky enough to be the one selected to do the testing.
