STC 4136 condenser mic

Phantom Powered Condenser microphone Reviews

The Rode NTG-2 is a condenser shotgun microphone designed for professional audio capturing in the field or indoors. With a history of manufacturing quality studio microphones, Rode has implemented low noise output electronics and wide bandwidth, both of which attribute to the NTG-2's broadcast sound quality.

The super-cardioid polar pattern and line plus gradient acoustic principle effectively minimize audio and noise at the off-axis (sides) of the microphone, while the front of the capsule accurately reproduces incoming audio signal. The result is greater intelligibility and signal-to-noise ratio when using the NTG-2 in noisy environments.

The NTG-2 is powered with an internal 1.5V AA size battery or an external +48 Volt phantom power source. The output is a standard 3-pin XLR male connector.

The microphone features a rugged, all metal, lightweight enclosure that is ideal for camera mounting yet durable enough to withstand the rigors of heavy road use. The Rode NTG-2 is packaged with a microphone stand mount and windscreen.

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)
