Vocal/Instrument Condenser

Instrument Condenser microphone

Affordable pressure gradient condenser mic with cardioid polar pattern and large dynamic range.

The MXL 910 Voice/Insrument Condenser Microphone gives you topnotch condenser sound without the high-end price tag. Part of MXL's 900 Series mics, affordable mics ideal for home studios, the side-address 910 is a medium diaphragm condenser mic versatile enough to handle guitars, drums, and even vocals thanks to its cardioid polar pattern, and gold-sputtered, 6 micron diaphragm. The 910 boasts a generous 30Hz—20kHz frequency range which is remarkably smooth and consistent between 50Hz through 1kHz, with a slight rise between the two, and a presence peak between 5K and 10K with a drop-off after 10K.

OK, so does this mic and mics like it...

Need an external pre-amp and/or mixing board, or would an XLR to 1/8" to iMic work. What are the pros & cons of phantom powered vs the type of direct-into-USB type mic that is available for $35-100. I mean I understand that the quality of the large condenser mic is inherently much more sensitive an instrument, but am I losing that quality by taking it directly into the computer? I'm running a Mac G3 B&W Tower running 10.3.6, and planning on using GarageBand to record, mix, burn and/or send voiceover work. I don't have the budget right now for any real hardware apart from more memory, maybe an iMic, maybemaybe good microphone (can borrow decent video XLR in the meantime)
