The C03U is essential for any level of musician, but its versatility can be applied to create audio solutions for anyone who records audio, particularly podcasters, educators, and business professionals. For musicians, the convergence of computer and audio technologies has established the home/mobile studio as an alternative to the professional recording facility. Whether youre touring the country or experimenting in your project studio, the C03U sets the standard for integrating your computer into your recording experience. Use the super-cardioid pickup pattern to record a single vocalist/instrumentalist or the omnidirectional configuration to harness an entire ensemble with ambient room miking at a pro-level directly to your computer. The C03U is perfect for recording music on-the-go or in limited spaces, allowing all musicians tremendous freedom to create. The evolution of podcasting has created a need for high-quality production capabilities that are also attainable by everyone. Satisfying these criteria, the C03U is a podcasters dream come true. Given a simple USB connection straight into your computer, it provides your podcasts with unparalleled quality in audio recording. With the C03Us multi-pattern pickup abilities, the voices of individual web journalists (super-cardioid), as well as discussion groups (omnidirectional) and interviewers (bi-directional), everywhere are empowered to establish a real identity in the congested world of podcasting. With computer-based technology becoming more steadily incorporated into educational protocols, useful functions for the C03U among students, professors and administrators are also on the rise. In addition to podcasting, the C03U can expand the educational applications for Skype, VoIP, screen capture software like Camtasia Studio and voice recognition software like Dragon Naturally Speaking. These applications, all of which can be used to teach, study or catalogue academic materials, are made easy with the superior degree of audio recording delivered by the C03U. So, whether youre teaching an online course, reviewing a past lecture or studying for a big exam across multiple computers, the C03U helps to make education a more accessible and interactive experience.
