Chicago, IL - August 22nd, 2007 - CEntrance, Inc., for years a leading design consultancy for today's top pro audio manufacturers, announced that MicPort Pro has begun shipping to authorized CEntrance resellers. MicPort Pro is the first model in a new line of portable USB products from CEntrance, the MicPort™ Series. List price for MicPort Pro is $149.95 in the U.S. with a MAP of $124.95.

MicPort Pro is a portable, low noise USB mic preamp featuring 24-bit/96kHz performance, 48V phantom power, zero latency monitoring, loud headphone output, and knobs for input and output level. MicPort Pro offers driverless, "wizard-free" installation and lets users record with most Windows™ XP/Vista and Mac OS X™ audio applications. MicPort Pro ships with a 6' USB cable and a carrying pouch. Users can download free software tools for recording and mixing from the CEntrance website.

MicPort Pro plugs into any XLR microphone and instantly transforms it into a recording device, and is ideal for recording vocals, sampling instruments, creating podcasts, and conducting interviews. Housed in a rugged aluminum chassis, MicPort Pro is especially useful on the road for portable recording and broadcasting use. MicPort is powered from the USB cable and generates 48V phantom power internally, requiring no additional power for condenser microphones even when using a laptop.

Stereo and multi-track recording is also possible with MicPort Pro thanks to the CEntrance Universal Driver™ that aggregates input from multiple MicPort Pro units with the lowest latency on the market at less than 6 milliseconds, free for MicPort customers.

"The MicPort Series serves the unmet market need for portable, high-quality USB preamps, leveraging our many years of pro audio design experience," notes Michael Goodman, Managing Director of CEntrance. "CEntrance will continue to grow its consulting business, helping clients develop breakthrough audio technology, and this product line showcases the innovation we bring to the table."

MicPort Pro is sold through a global network of authorized CEntrance channel partners, a complete list of which can be found on the CEntrance website at http://www.centrance.com/products/mp/buy.shtml.
