Chicago, IL - January 9th, 2008 - CEntrance, Inc., for years a leading pro audio design consultancy, and manufacturer of the hit USB mic preamp, MicPort™ Pro, today announced a new CEntrance hardware product: the AxePort™ Pro USB Direct Box, 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. AxePort Pro is the complete package for recording with almost any DAW on Windows™ VP/Vista and Mac OSX™. 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 your 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. For more information, visit www.AxePort.com.
Available now from dealers and distributors worldwide, MicPort Pro is a portable, Class A USB mic preamp that transforms any mic into a USB mic with 24-bit/96kHz performance, thanks to high-quality A/D conversion. 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 the lowest latency on the market (less than 6 milliseconds).

Both AxePort Pro and MicPort Pro will be demonstrated in CEntrance booth #201-25, Level 2 (in the balcony) at Winter NAMM from January 17-20, 2008.
