I am a podcaster. I bought the Samson C01U microphone last year as I was told at that time it was the best in the entry-level for someone that was considering podcasting. There's an applet that is offered by Samson that allows Input Level Meter, Volume control, High-pass filter and Phase Switch. Every recording sounded great when I combine this applet with GarageBand. Recently, I switched to Leopard and the applet doesn't work anywore. Worse, recording audio with that mic gives me radically inferior quality. When I asked Samson about that matter, the support tech guy told me that there was no intention on porting this software on the new operating system, with the following: I've googled the matter several times with no one else noticing the matter but myself. Anyone else in a similar situation?
