CEntrance Adds SD Card Recorder to MixerFace R4

CEntrance announces the MixerFace R4R, a new version of its mobile recording interface that now comes with a built-in audio recorder.

The MixerFace R4R retains all the features of its parent MixerFace R4, (released in July, 2018), but adds a built-in, "one-button record," stereo micro-SD card recorder.

The original MixerFace R4 is passport-sized mobile recording interface that turns a smartphone into a portable DAW. It is ideal for capturing interviews or live events at a remote location. It has an internal, long-lasting rechargeable battery, making it a mobile companion.

Two built-in mic preamps have true 48V phantom power. The built-in SD card recorder in the R4R enhances those applications as it captures audio immediately, without waiting for the phone. An extra benefit of the built-in SD Card recorder is the ability to stream audio via the phone, while recording a local copy to the SD card.

The tripod-mountable device also appeals to DSLR videographers. Paired with a smartphone or a video camera, the product improves audio quality over typical on-camera audio, dramatically improving production values of semi-professional video shoots.

The MixerFace R4R is priced at $449.99. The original "MixerFace R4" model is priced at $349.99.
