24-bit/96kHz USB Mic Preamp

No batteries. No latency. No headaches. Just plug in and record.

MicPort Pro from CEntrance is a 24-bit/96kHz broadcast quality USB mic preamp used by the BBC, CNN, NBC, CBS, ABC, and voiceover professionals. MicPort Pro is your mic-to-computer audio interface, compatible with Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X 10.4 and above, and LINUX. MicPort Pro features 48V phantom power, a loud headphone output for zero latency monitoring, and aggregation that allows you to record in stereo with two MicPort Pro units. Even test & measurement guys love it with MicPort Pro’s SMAART v.6 compatibility.

No batteries. No latency. No headaches. Just plug in and record.

Andy Hong in TapeOp

“The biggest headaches we get trying to capture that elusive, magic moment always stem from fear of a poor recording. MicPort Pro is a permanent cure for that headache.”

“If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and very portable mic’ing system with high-quality sound for your laptop or desktop, the MicPort Pro should be on your shortlist…”

Harlan Hogan and Jeffrey Fisher in their book,
Voice Actor’s Guide to Recording at Home

“Now, any mic you own or purchase in the future can be a USB mic. The preamp is clean, clear and natural sounding, and the A/D audio interface is quiet so you record your voice, not the electronics. This is one amazingly handy device at an equally amazing low price.”

Tom Phillips in Post

“I set up a test comparing it [MicPort Pro] to a Grace Design 201 preamp recording into Cakewalk Sonar 6 on my PC, and then replayed the same parts using the same microphones fed through the MicPort Pro and Garage Band. For microphones I used a Neumann U87 (condenser) and a Coles 4038 (ribbon). In general, I would say that the MicPort Pro compared incredibly well. At times it was difficult to hear any difference at all.”

Record Anytime, Anywhere

At home or on the road, MicPort Pro’s compact, USB-powered design offers maximum audio fidelity and minimal system configuration. Protected by a rugged chassis, MicPort Pro’s Class A preamp and low-noise circuitry preserves high-quality audio.

The onboard headphone jack delivers zero-latency monitoring via direct circuit. Mic gain and headphone volume adjustment couldn’t be easier with MicPort Pro’s two conveniently located rotary controls.

MicPort Pro A/D and D/A Converters

MicPort Pro uses high performance 24-bit A/D and D/A converters. The ADC has an Enhanced Dual Bit architecture with wide dynamic range. The DAC uses the newly developed Advanced Multi Bit architecture and achieves low noise and high jitter tolerance by use of SCF (switched capacitor filter) techniques.
