SM58: How to connect the mic to a computer?
Answer:

You’ll need a special soundcard that features XLR inputs or an audio interface such as the MVi or X2U. These are plug and play devices and don’t need any additional drivers to be installed. Note that the MVi can also be used to make a connection to iDevices like iPads.
