The microphone I have only has an XLR to 3.5mm cable. The microphone ports on the audiobox do not seem to be normal XLR ports but I am really clueless and need help with which cables I need to buy to get it plugged in to the audiobox and then out to the PC. I am worried I will end up buying cables that are useless and a waste of money due to my own ignorance.

Chris, the audiotex 96 uses what's called a combo jack meaning it will accept both XLR and 1/4". All you need is a regular XLR to XLR.. an XLR to 1/4" won't supply your mic with phantom power. XLR to XLR will
