Some USB interfaces that do provide phantom power (like this) cost not much more than your phantom power source. I think the overall quality may be better than using just a phantom power source and the built-in audio interface of your computer. If it is not a computer where you want to plug in your mic, check if it does not provide phantom power on its own. ...

These two things traditionally don't achieve the same goals; but most audio interfaces allow you to use phantom power (usually with a wall-wart adapter). One is for powering a microphone (for use live, radio, anytime a microphone is needed, etc.) and the other is for recording input from a microphone. If you get a USB audio interface you'll kill a few ...

Of course, with a USB (or other) interface you also put down a wad of money for a particular quality you are then tied into. My own approach would be to get a good ...

This question has a long ,complex, and somewhat incomplete answer. All the items you mentioned matter. Trivial example, open and stopped organ pipes. An open pipe generates a fundamental wavelength equal the length of the pipe; there is a node at each end (that is, the air is still at each end.) A stopped pipe generates a fundamental with wavelength half ...
