CEntrance MixerFace R4 enables cellphones to act as a portable DAW.
CEntrance has announced its new MixerFace R4, a highly portable four-channel broadcast-quality recording interface for smartphones and tablets.
CEntrance said the R4, due to ship in July, turns a portable device into a DAW, allowing it to do remote interviews and field recordings using the smart phone or tablet as a recording medium.
The built-in high-quality mic preamps feature true 48V phantom power with Neutrik combo XLR jacks. An internal, long-lasting Li-Po rechargeable battery sets MixerFace R4 apart from other portable interfaces and makes it the ideal companion for the road.
The mixer can be used for recording, broadcasting, as well as live streaming from location. It also features studio monitor outputs so it can double up as a recording interface in a project studio. An AmpExtreme headphone amplifier ensures extra loudness and clarity.
MixerFace R4 is compatible with most smart phones, tablets and laptops, including Apple iOS, macOS, Android and Windows-based machines. About the footprint of a smart phone, the four-input mobile recording interface is designed to easily make recordings and share digital projects online, all while delivering professional results.
"MixerFace R4 represents a sea change in the recording process," said Michael Goodman, CEO of CEntrance. "Now multi-track recording and editing can be done on a phone or a tablet so users can work from anywhere. Now it's easy to send in voiceovers, vocal and instrument overdubs from the road, using just a phone."
MixerFace R4 is set to ship in July 2018, with a retail price of $349.99.
