Like I said, before spending money, see if you can borrow one and try that. I don't know much about xlr cables myself... even my microphone that I record my vocals with has an 1/4 jack and not an xlr plug.

A good rule of thumb is to use the least amount of adapters as possible.

As far as an interface goes, I know how they work but I could not even begin to help with one having problems or even if they be worth it. I always have recorded direct input and had no problems:

Some people swear by them though, so I will leave that decision up to you as far as getting an interface or USB interface.

Just to let you know, in a very complicated situation that I'm not going to go into, the mics have arrived and the sound is unbelievably better. I record it straight into Ableton live and noise is minimal, only really noticable if you crank the volume. Add some reverb and fiddle with the EQ, it sounds pretty darn good for 45 minutes work.

Thanks for the help with everything though, I really appreciate it.

I've got the Behringer C1, it's not a bad microphone. Searching the web you'll find positive and negative reviews, so the only way to know if its quality is enough for your project, is just testing yourself.

I can tell you that if you don't have a good preamp, this microphone can deliver a huge amount of noise. But,as example, with Alesis Mictube, the final result is very clean. So using a good preamp can really change the mic behaviour.
