I am working on exactly the same thing.  From what I can tell, the usb mic is powered by +5v DC supplied by the usb cable, whereas a conventional condenser mic would typically be powered by +48v Phantom power (which is technically DC as well).  The problem with this is that the +48v and the +5v are supplied in different ways, and the phantom power (needed to boost the signal to a point that it can be heard by the mixing board or amplifier) is too strong for the components of  the usb mic.  I am currently looking into the possibility of replacing the circuit board but I am not very optimistic.  I’m sure it can be done but I’m not sure if it’s worth this much time and effort.
