CEntrance Introduces the MicPort Pro 2 Mobile Recording Interface

CEntrance has announced the MicPort Pro 2, a follow-up to their original mobile recording interface. The new, smaller one-channel version of the mobile recording interface incorporates all of the sonic improvements developed for the company’s Mixerface product comes with a built-in rechargeable battery.

CEntrance’s MicPort Pro 2 uses a 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. It records to iOS, Android, Mac or Windows phones and computers.

MicPort Pro 2 features a single, high-quality microphone 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 is priced at $249.99 and will ship soon. It is added to two channel models introduced earlier, some with internal audio recorders.

The product was designed for broadcasters, voiceover artists, podcasters and musicians. The built-in high-quality mic preamp, featuring a Neutrik combo jack and true 48V phantom power, allows users to 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 a smartphone.

An internal, long-lasting rechargeable battery makes the device portable for the road. Paired with a smartphone or a video camera, it improves audio quality over typical on-camera audio, dramatically raising production values of semi-professional video shoots.

A high pass filter helps cut wind noise during location recording. An adjustable zero latency monitor control allows dialing in the perfect headphone mix. An AmpExtreme headphone amp adds extra loudness and clarity, with no distortion.

“The internal world-class D/A converters are protected by the lightweight but sturdy, aircraft aluminum chassis, and deliver professional sound quality in a small package,“ said Michael Goodman, CEntrance CEO. “This portable marvel will liberate recording from the confines of the studio and let you find inspiration anywhere.”
