Question about CAD Microphones GXL2200 Professional Microphone
The easiest way to do it properly would be to use a small mixer, with an adapter cable from the outputs (usually 1/4") to the line-in of the laptop (usually 3.5mm stereo).

But John is forgetting one VERY important thing .... Your laptop does not supply the 48 volts 'phantom power' that the microphone needs to work. You have two options: 1) buy a "Phantom Power Supply" from someplace such as Amazon.com and get an appropriate 'XLR female to mini-phone plug adapter' to plug into your computer .... or 2) Buy a USB Preamp that plugs into your laptop and the preamp will supply the 48 volts for the microphone. I use an M-Audio preamp for mine. There are lots of different models of preamps to choose from. Just make sure the description says it is able to supply 'phantom power'.
Once you have the mic plugged into the preamp, and the preamp plugged into a USB port on your computer, then you need to startup your favorite recoding program (I use Sound Studio on my Apple Macintosh) and open the Preferences, or the Audio Control Panel, and select the USB preamp as your sound source.
In other words ... that microphone cannot be plugged directly into your laptop through the factory supplied jack and have it work. It MUST have the 48 volts 'phantom power' to operate.
