Chicago, IL - March 20th, 2007 - CEntrance, Inc., for years a leading design consultancy to the biggest pro audio manufacturers today announced a CEntrance-branded hardware product: MicPort™ 24/96 USB Mic Preamp. MicPort is the first in new a line of portable USB products from CEntrance. The tubular device plugs into any XLR microphone and instantly transforms it into a recording device. MicPort is ideal for recording podcasts, vocals or musical instruments in the home studio, or on the road. Developed also for portable use, MicPort is housed in a rugged aluminum chassis and offers high-end pro audio features such as a low-noise preamp, 48V phantom power, zero-latency monitoring, and a stereo headphone jack.

MicPort's high-quality A/D converter delivers 24-bit 96-kHz performance under OS X™ and Windows™, including Vista. No driver installation is required - the product is ready to record in just seconds after being plugged into the computer. Analog controls are available for microphone gain and stereo headphone level, making MicPort the smallest and most convenient 24-bit 96-kHz professional-quality USB recording interface.

"CEntrance understands microphones with several of us having worked at Shure, Inc.," notes Sean Parnell, Director of Marketing at CEntrance. "We combined our pro audio USB expertise with our knowledge of microphone technology to make MicPort a professional recording solution for the home studio and the road."

The device is powered from USB and does not require an external power supply or batteries. Because it uses standard USB software drivers, MicPort is compatible with most popular recording software such as Apple's GarageBand for Mac and Cakewalk's Sonar for Windows.
