Will this work in my MXL 990? If not what will? If you have an mxl 990 please also tell me what you use

This is what i have (i think)

It will not work. There is no phantom power supplied by that cable, it absolutely will not work. You should buy an interface, not a usb cable. It'll sound a thousand times better and reduce latency considerably.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

Nope, as stated, no phantom power with that cable.
Don't cheap out...find yourself a M-Audio Fast Track MKII interface.
This offers nice adjustable preamps and a phantom power source.
You'll just need an XLR cable to attach the mic to it.

The MXL990 is a nice mic to capture an overall sound mix though so I'd stick with that. The new interface will give ya a much better recording quality anyways.
