I have a sE Electronics ProMic Laser microphone that I've mounted on top of a monitor with the goal of using it with a laptop to record videos. Currently, it's connected to the laptop, but I'd like to ask the community, how much difference would connecting this microphone to an audio interface make audio quality wise?
If an audio interface would make a significant difference, which audio interface would allow for the full potential of the microphone to be utilized? Would Focusrite Scarlett 4i4 (3rd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools be too much? By too much, I mean is the audio quality that the audio interface can provide way higher than what the microphone can offer? And how can someone determine that anyway?
The microphone specs are:
Directional Pattern: Hyper Cardioid
Frequency range: 20 Hz - 20 kHz

Preattenuation Pad: -10 dB
