Prestigious Award Recognizes Innovation in the 24/96 USB Mic Preamp
Chicago, IL – November 19, 2008 –
CEntrance Inc. announced today that its flagship product, the MicPort Pro(tm) has won Mac|Life Magazine’s Editor’s Choice Award. The compact USB Mic Preamp is the winner in the audio products category. The prestigious award recognizes MicPort’s innovative feature set and pristine audio quality required by demanding professional applications.
MicPort Pro packs a digital recording studio inside a cigar-sized tube. It plugs into the back of any professional microphone and instantly converts it into a 24-bit/96kHz USB recording microphone, ready for use with any modern Mac or PC – no drivers are needed.
Mac|Life’s review, in its December issue, states: “The biggest headaches we get trying to capture that elusive, magic moment, be it during rehearsal with our band or in an interview with a profile subject, always stem from fear of a poor recording. The CEntrance MicPort Pro is a permanent cure for that headache.”
MicPort Pro offers true 48V phantom power and device aggregation, allowing to record in stereo with two units. The built-in headphone amp provides the means for monitoring recorded material, a feature popular with musicians, voice over artists and journalists. Used on location by the BBC, CNN, NBC, and independent broadcasters worldwide, MicPort Pro saves time, space and setup headaches for anyone who needs to record high-quality audio on the go. MicPort Pro’s SMAART v.6 compatibility also makes it a popular tool for acoustical measurements. MicPort Pro is compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 and above, Windows XP and Vista, and LINUX.
Michael Goodman, Managing Director of CEntrance said: “We are proud to see our years of computer audio R&D recognized by the publication we love. Mac Life joins thousands of satisfied customers around the globe who found a permanent place for the MicPort Pro in their computer bags and in their hearts.”
