CEntrance has announced that their MixerFace R4B – a high-end recording solution for Mobile Broadcasting – is now shipping.
The mobile recording interface comes with a pair of XY stereo microphones, PivotMics PM1, and a built-in 24-bit SD card recorder, creating a completely stand-alone recording device. It has been designed as a mobile solution for remote broadcasting or news gathering, podcasting, and interviews, as well as for field recording, concert taping, band rehearsals, live performance streaming, capturing audio from the FOH mixing position at concerts, and much more.
Features include a long-lasting rechargeable battery and two built-in high-quality mic preamps with true 48V phantom power. Neutrik Combo input jacks with the Hi-Z feature allow plugging in electric guitars and basses, which also means that MixerFace R4B can double up a music practice tool, idea pad, or on-the-gig mixer. This also means it can turn a smartphone into a streaming device or portable DAW, ideal for capturing professional sounding audio anywhere.
The microphones offer a flat frequency response, high SPL capability, and low noise, making them ideal for both spoken word and music recordings. The condenser capsules in the left and right microphones are each mounted at a 45-degree angle, forming a 90-degree XY stereo pair. Optionally, the microphones could be inserted into the opposite input channels, facing outwards and transforming MixerFace into an interactive field interview tool, ideal for reporters and podcasters who interview their guests on-the-go.
The built-in 24-bit/48kHz stereo SD card recorder offers “One-Button Record” and captures audio immediately, without waiting to connect a smartphone or tablet. It prints a safety copy of the mix and allows streaming audio via the phone while recording a local copy to the SD card.
The MixerFace R4B is available now at $499.99 USD. The new CEntrance PivotMics are also shipping separately at $179.99 for a pair.
