Chicago, IL (January 11, 2008)–CEntrance, Inc., pro audio design consultancy and manufacturer of the MicPort Pro USB mic preamp, has announced a new hardware product, the AxePort Pro USB Direct Box, for guitar and bass players who want to record at home or on the road.
AxePort Pro will be available for demonstration with MicPort Pro at the NAMM Show, January 17-20 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA (Booth 201-25, Level 2).
Though more tubular than a traditional direct box, AxePort Pro offers 24-bit/96kHz performance and a USB interface for guitar and bass players. AxePort Pro is compatible with almost any DAW on Windows VP/Vista and Mac OSX.
AxePort Pro is also bundled with Guitar Combos amp emulation software from Native Instruments, the CEntrance ASIO/GSIF Universal Driver, a belt clip, 3-foot guitar cable, 6-foot USB cable, and velvet carrying pouch.
MicPort Pro is a portable, Class A USB mic preamp that transforms any mic into a USB mic with 24-bit/96kHz performance. MicPort Pro features 48V phantom power and zero latency monitoring, and is built on the same platform as AxePort Pro. Stereo and multi-track recording is also possible with MicPort Pro thanks to the complimentary CEntrance Universal Driver that aggregates input from multiple MicPort Pro units with less than 6 milliseconds latency.
