I got a Shure WL185 lavalier for xmas to record voice on videos. It has a TA4F female connector. My Focusrite 2i2 only has the standard XLR and 1/4" inputs to accept a male connector (like most all other audio interfaces. Is there one connector I can buy for this? Been searching around and can't seem to find one. Any else hooking a TA4F 4 pin mini connector to their setup?

I think you need Shure's little phantom power box?

Power Requirements:
Regulated nominal +5 Vdc (1.5 Vdc to 10
Vdc) provided at microphone connector pin 2 relative to pin 1 of a
Shure wireless microphone transmitter.

This might work, too?

Thanks loudboy but this has female connectors on both ends. And the unit I bought has a female end for the mini connector already.

This mic needs a preamp with it? Holy smokes this unit you linked is $84! The mic was $100 or so. Do all lavalier style miss require their own preamp outside of what's in the Scarlett 2i2?

It's a lav designed for a wireless belt pack. What are you planning on recording with it? This may not be the best answer. Yes it needs a preamp more specific than what's in the Scarlett

Sorry to be the grinch, but why get a lav to do voiceovers?
Unless you have another plan for the mic. I'd say you'd be better served by a large diaphragm condenser mic on a stand.
If $100 was your budget, I still think there's plenty of choices.

Looks like yours has what I know as a Lemo connector, yes for a wireless, so you may be overcomplicating the basic plan.

hmmm...it may be headed for a return. I already have a large diaphragm condenser that is decent enough. I will experiment with that.
