on both xlr connection, you can see numbers on the plug from the out side and the inside. number 1,2 and three. 1 is for the ground, 2 for the hot wire and 3 is for the return, just match numbers. if you switch them, it will not work. just make sure one to one and so forth. good luck

Pin 1= ground/shield, Pin 2= hot(+ve), Pin 3= cold(-ve). Just remember if you make a cord like this you can expect some signal loss.

Professional condensor type mikes require a phantom power source to work. That will be a balanced (read XLR) connection from source to preamp and the preamp must be capable of supplying the power. These units cannot be used in an unbalanced circuit (like 1/4" or computer mini-pin). Your best bet for the setup would be to get an external power supply box that can also convert the signal from balanced to unbalanced. That would be what the mike plugs into and then that plugs into the computer. You're probably looking at about 50-100 for even a cheap one that will work well. Companies like Sweetwater and B&H should be able to steer you toward a decent basic unit. If you happen to have a mixer (which is why you bought the good mike) then it may have phantom power for some of its mike inputs.
