How To Connect XLR Microphone To Your PC

So far we have suggested a lot of amazing Microphones you can use. It always comes down to two different types of Microphones.

1) USB Microphones
If you choose to order a USB microphone then simply once it arrives at your front door all you have to do is plug it into your laptop or computer and you're good to go.

2) XLR Microphones
If you just order a XLR microphone then you might get a shock when it arrives.
I want to explain today what steps you should take if you want to order an XLR microphone and what the main differences will be in quality.

Let's take a look at Markiplier's PGA-27 Microphone as an example.

This really is an AMAZING microphone, if you order it though it won't come with everything you need.

You need to order
1) The Microphone
2) XLR Cable
3) Small Mixer 

Once you have all 3 items then you will successfully be able to connect everything up and record breath taking high quality audio straight onto your PC. Your setup would look something like this.

PGA-27 Mic > XLR Cable > Mixer > Computer
