    How to get a usb mic converter to monitor?

I already know that the icicle is the input and since it has no output, the computer is the default out. Is there a way to monitor using a usb mic or usb mic converter? Also...

    Extending guitar pickup leads

    Ok so I've read that you can extend guitar pickup leads by twisting the wires together and putting some heat shrink tubing over the top of it to keep it from arc-ing. Do you have to do this with each individual lead or can you just strip all of them bare and twist them together?

    Midiman audio buddy

    Does anyone know if this is a good buy or have any suggestions for a 2 channel external phantom power unit? The pros I saw in this one were that GC has it for 50$ and it functions as a extra gain stage in case more signal is needed.

    Is anyone familiar with the sennheiser e609, I've had mine a little over 3 years and its in good condition. When I last tried to use it to record it sounded like there was a band width inside the mic dedicated to distorted hissing and this just started to happen. Any thoughts?
