CEntrance announces AxePort USB Direct Box 10/01/08
Centrance manufacturer of the USB mic preamp, MicPort Pro, have announced a new CEntrance hardware product, the AxePort Pro USB Direct Box, which they say is ideal for all guitar and bass players who want to record at home or on the road - and sound great. AxePort Pro will be available for demonstration with MicPort Pro at NAMM in CEntrance 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. Centrance believe that AxePort Pro is the complete package for recording with almost any DAW on Windows(tm) VP/Vista and Mac OSX(tm), they say that you can simply plug a 1/4-inch cord into AxePort from your electric guitar or bass - or acoustic with built-in pick-up - and start recording immediately.
Musicians recording on the road will especially appreciate AxePort Pro's compact size, rugged aluminum chassis and USB bus power drawn straight from a computer, even laptops (no wall warts or batteries). AxePort Pro features the same loud headphone preamp and knobs for input and output level as sister product designed for XLR microphones, MicPort Pro.
AxePort Pro is also bundled with Guitar Combos amp emulation software from Native Instruments, the CEntrance ASIO/GSIF Universal Driver, a handy belt clip, 3-foot guitar cable, 6-foot USB cable, and a velvet carrying pouch. Pricing and Availability:
