Does Phantom Power Improve Your Condenser Mics Audio?

WARNING: I no longer recommend using a USB soundcard to connect a microphone to your computer. It has become too unreliable due to manufacturers altering the components used in their products as well as alterations to operating systems causing additional problems. The only method of connecting a microphone to your computer that I recommend is with a USB AUDIO INTERFACE that is designed specifically for that use case.

Hi Podcastage, what do you recommend to provide phantom power to a mic such as the Antlion Modmic? They recommend using a USB adapter, but I’d like to hear your thoughts on that.

Watch out when buying a Neewer interface. There are ones with XLR to 3.5mm output which are crap. At least get the one with the USB output.
