The XLR jacks on the 2i4 only accept male plugs. (And then only after a really nice dinner.)

What are you connecting to what???

Your question doesn't make sense unless you specifically mention which devices you want to connect. And once you mention that the answer is fairly obvious if you just look at the devices.

If you want to connect a microphone to the input of an interface and that interface has a dedicated microphone input, you just look at what they look like. It's going to be a "hole" on the input side (interface) and "pins" on the output side (mic). I.e. XLR male/female.

Males are output. Females are input.

Assuming you are connecting the AT2035 which has a "OUTPUT CONNECTOR Integral 3-pin XLRM-type" (from their website) and your Focusrite needs an XLRM input then a standard female to male XLR cable should be fine.

Here for the gear
 

Try not to overthink it...

You simply need an "XLR" cable... also known as "Mic" cable.

This consists of one side being the "male" and the other side being "female".

Like everything else in the world, there are different brands and prices... but for all intents and purposes, an XLR is an XLR.

(unless specifically specified that it is made for something other than microphones and/or audio equipment)

Any XLR microphone cable will do. If you wanna get fancy, get Mogami Gold XLR cables
