I am doing some research for my studio/work place and have wanted to upgrade audio for a while. I use a Neewer audio condenser and it has slight issues with my cloud power so I looked around. I have SEVERAL USB ports on my computer and to switch to USB rather then switching the motherboard just to add an extra port is just quite annoying. Is it possible to connect my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 through the USB to XLR and put it through the phantom power?

your post is incoherent and doesnt make sense. i suggest rewording it.

by this title it sounds like if you're asking if you can hook up the 2i2 to an existing 48v phantom power adapter by using a usb to xlr cable to power the unit froma 48v adapter. no, of course not.

okay, we can certainly try to answer some questions.
I use a Neewer audio condenser
i'm guessing you mean you have a neewer brand condenser microphone?
and it has slight issues with my cloud power
what do you mean by cloud power?
so I looked around. I have SEVERAL USB ports on my computer and to switch to USB rather then switching the motherboard just to add an extra port is just quite annoying.
what? it sounds like you have usb ports yet have to change motherboards to get more usb ports?

so you want to feed a device which uses 12v from usb 48v from a phantom power adapter? thats not going to work.
the scarlett 2i2 is meant to hook up to your computer via a free usb port. in this way it gets both power and can communicate with your pc. the front jacks support both 1/4" and xlr style microphone connectors to use with such microphones. it provides 48v phantom power to xlr microphones requiring this.

now i'm not sure about which neewer microphone you have however most of those that i've seen under $50 seem to be powered via the 3.5mm microphone jack on your computer and are not 48v.

i would suggeset rewriting your question in a way that is understandable as well as listing what equipment you want to use (what mic for instance) as well as what problems you are currently having.
