what do you use as an audio interface? most good audio interfaces have the phantom power built in. a cheap preamp you can get is a audiobuddy but if you can spare some more you will probably find better stuff on craigslist.org

yeh dont have one,will probably just buy a cheaper one for starters,seen ones in the 30-70$ range..then when got a bit more cash will get 200-300$ preamp.

you can find preamps that have phantom power

we rock a Firebox, which is a preamp and has phantom power supply with it

looks something like this

if you don't really know to much about the equipment or how it works and your wanting to work your way into the whole game of equipment you can get a blue icicle http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Microphones-Icicle-Converter-Preamp/dp/B001EW5YQS they are relatively cheap and allow you to straight use your usb. this could be something that interests you like i said if your new to equipment and how everything works and just want a quick cheap fix for now until you learn more about shit.

i would assume that the icicle would work. my mic is an audio-technica 4040 http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/wired_mics/9b6aac05c5aca887/index.html and they work fine together. if that helps lol.

What i've found is that i'll need a preamp and to make things easier a Preamp that connects to my computer via USB,otherwise i'm thinking i'll need certain cables to connect the preamp to my computer.Any help on this would be appreciated(info,cheap preamps etc)
