Chicago, IL — January 17, 2019 — CEntrance today announced the launch of MicPort Pro 2, a follow up to their award-winning, and hugely popular mobile recording interface. The new version of the acclaimed mobile recording interface incorporates all of the sonic improvements developed for the company’s Mixerface product, and like MixerFace, comes with a built-in rechargeable battery. MicPort Pro 2 uses the company’s critically acclaimed Jasmine™ Mic Preamp that features 20dB more gain and less noise than the original. Its analog-to-digital converters operate at 24-bit/192kHz and feature broadcast-ready performance. MicPort Pro 2 is designed for artists on the move. It features a single, high-quality input and a stereo headphone/line output. Smaller than a microphone, the interface is lightweight and was designed with frequent travelers in mind. The new MicPort Pro 2 has an MSRP of $249.99 USD.
The product will be handy for voiceover actors, podcasters and broadcasters, but also for touring musicians, who need to record overdubs in studio quality, on-the-spot. The built-in high-quality mic preamp, featuring a Neutrik Combo jack and true 48V phantom power, lets users choose their favorite microphones. Its Hi-Z feature allows directly plugging in electric guitars and basses, making MicPort Pro 2 an ideal practice tool, idea pad, or streaming interface for the phone.
MicPort Pro 2 turns a smartphone into a portable DAW, ideal for capturing interviews, musical ideas, instrument overdubs, or live events at a remote location. Invaluable for podcasting, video blogging, newsgathering, live streaming, songwriting, and other mobile recording uses, the hand-held recording interface makes it easy to record professional-quality audio anywhere. An internal, long-lasting rechargeable battery sets the CEntrance product apart from other portable audio interfaces and makes it the ideal companion for the road.
The tripod-mountable device will be also appealing to video bloggers. Paired with a smartphone or a video camera, the product improves audio quality over typical on-camera audio, dramatically raising production values of semi-professional video shoots.
“With MicPort Pro we have made professional location recording accessible anywhere. With its built-in battery, the updated model does not rely on the laptop and is designed for the modern digital nomad who travels only with a phone. These hand-held, road-friendly units fit in a mic bag—and sound great, lasting for a whole recording session on a full charge,” said Michael Goodman, CEntrance CEO. “The internal world-class D/A converters were borrowed from our award-winning Hi-Fi products. They are protected by the lightweight but sturdy, aircraft aluminum chassis, and deliver professional sound quality in a small package. This portable marvel will liberate recording from the confines of the studio and let you find inspiration anywhere.”
“I’ve had a vision of ‘personal audio’ and the tiny MicPort Pro 2 fits right in. It puts real professional recording in your pocket, right next to your phone—and there is still room for your keys,” added Goodman.
The new MicPort Pro 2 has an MSRP of $249.99 USD, ship date TBA. CEntrance is currently shipping two models of MixerFace: “R4” and “R4R” (with the onboard SD-Card recorder) with MSRP of $349.99 and $449.99 USD respectively.
