CEntrance MicPort Pro review [Mono & Stereo]
CEntrance links to some other good reviews online on their product page. Highlights:
- Craig Anderton writes a detailed review for Harmony Central and in March did a short round-up of “fun stuff to plug into your USB bus.”
- Steve Fortner at Keyboard is quite fond of the thing.
- MusicTech gives it a perfect score, even though I’m always suspicious of perfect scores and, well, scores in general.
- Chris Breen likes it at Macworld, as does Joshua Topolsky for Engadget
So, there’s a round-up of people I know and like. I’m still sticking to a dedicated interface, at least until someone makes one of these that doubles as a standalone mic pre. (CEntrance, you listening? I’d even add a little bulk for that, honestly.) Interestingly, one commenter points out that while I didn’t like the lack of a headphone jack for direct monitoring, some people might prefer to listen through the host, so that keeps Blue’s offering in the running.
Certainly, to anyone who thought an XLR-to-USB mic pre wouldn’t appeal to anyone, this proves otherwise.
