Technology that works is such a treat and here's a little gem. The Samson G-Track combines a condenser microphone with a USB audio interface. But it's not just a USB microphone... the G-track also provides line and instrument level input to the PC with a headphone/line output. It ships with a stand and a copy of Sonar LE... neat. There are some great USB microphones available but by including a line input and headphone out in one unit the G-Track is pretty unique. An ideal choice for laptop recordists, podcasters and practising musicians. Cruchgear has a useful review or check it out on the Samson website.
