Gearank Recommendation

The G-Track Pro appeared on our recommended list for USB Microphones from April 2019 until March 2021 when it was replaced by mics with higher ratings.

Overview

Perhaps the most unique feature about the Samson G-track Pro is that it isn't just a microphone - it also doubles as an audio interface with a standard 1/4" input for recording line level signals like guitar, bass, keyboard.

One creative use noted on the Samson website is patching in a mono output from a separate mixer to include a mono submix: perfect for recording additional speaking hosts, guests or instruments.

Notable features include a 1/4" instrument input for connecting guitars or line level devices, built in mixer function, selectable polar patterns and zero latency monitoring.

If you operate from a stationary setup and require a separate mix for line level instruments, or even a separate mixer for guests, the G-track Pro is an excellent choice.

Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best USB Mics.
