CEntrance has announced that its new MixerFace R4 mobile recording interface for songwriters, podcasters and vloggers is now in production and expected to ship in July 2018.
The handheld four-channel device turns a smartphone into a DAW, making it quick to capture musical ideas, remote interviews and field recordings using the smart phone or tablet as a recording medium. The built-in mic preamps feature 48V power, so users can choose their favourite microphone for recording. An internal, long-lasting rechargeable battery sets MixerFace R4 apart from other portable interfaces and makes it the ideal companion for the road. MixerFace R4 also features studio monitor outputs so it can double up as a recording interface in a project studio.
MixerFace R4 is compatible with most smartphones, tablets and laptops, including Android and Apple iOS, macOS and Windows-based machines
"MixerFace R4 represents a sea change in the recording process," explained Michael Goodman, CEntrance CEO. "Now multi-track recording and editing can be done on a phone or a tablet, so you can work from anywhere. Our new mic pres are great for instruments and vocals. Now it's super easy to send in your voiceovers, vocal and instrument overdubs from the road, using just a phone."
MixerFace R4 is set to ship in July 2018, with a US MSRP of $349.99.
MixerFace R4 features: Adjustable zero latency monitor control for dialing in the mix; AUX input to add in a stereo source for practice or performance; AmpExtreme Headphone amp for loudness and clarity; balanced and unbalanced outputs for speaker monitoring; and high-capacity Li-Po battery for longer sessions without recharge.
