CEntrance Inc. AxePort Pro overview

  • 1Description

The AxePort Pro from CEntrance is a professional USB direct box for use with electric guitars and basses, and features true plug-and-play installation. The unit is very compact and enables instant computer recording to any audio software running under Windows XP/Vista or Mac OSX.

A rugged chassis allows the unit to be used in virtually any environment, while the AxePort Pro's low-noise circuitry will preserve high-quality audio sources. The 1/8" stereo mini headphone output can power most headphones, features a dedicated volume control, and delivers zero-latency monitoring via a direct circuit.

Setup is virtually non-existent, allowing the user to create a mobile recording situation anywhere a computer is available. Native Instruments' Guitar Combos modeling software enhances the usefulness of the product, especially for the on-the-go musician that needs high quality recording with minimal headaches.

Compact, USB based direct box for electric guitar and bass with 24-bit/96kHz performance
Low-noise with input level control knob
High quality analog to digital (A/D) conversion
Loud headphone amp with output level control knob
Universal driver for use of multiple simultaneous units (including MicPort Pro)

    CEntrance Inc. AxePort Pro reviews

    AxePort Pro - Guitar/Bass USB Direct Box is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great idea...wish it worked with my G5 I bought this hoping to use it as a DI for guitar and bass into my computer. The info online describing the product as compatible with Mac systems had me thinking it would work as a USB input I could use with ProTools HD. Unfortunately, this is not the case (digidesign issue apparently, not AxePort), also no matter how much I futzed with control panels, I could not get the AxePort to play thru the computer so I could at least take the optical outs of the G5 and run them to my ProTools interface. Frustrating.It does work with no problem into my MacBook running Garage Band, and also as advertised as a practice device with headphones. ....It is well built and attractive. Other than my audio issue which may be OS related, I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works right out of the box - No Driver Worked great with the asio drivers. Even worked in a pinch on a friends laptop without having the driver available.
