The MicPort Pro from CEntrance is a professional USB microphone preamp featuring true plug-and-play installation. The unit is very compact and enables instant computer recording to any audio software running under Windows or Mac. The preamp supports the use of condenser microphones with the inclusion of 48V phantom power.

    MicPort Pro USB Microphone Preamp is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from What a great little piece of gear! I am a voice over artist and am currently building a mobile studio package. I couldn't believe such a small piece of equipment could replace a traditional audio interface unit. Well, let me tell you it does the job to perfection! Sounds fabulous, and I love that I can adjust both the gain and headphones separately. One of my favorite things about the preamp is how easy it was to install. It was literally plug n play - NO learning curve whatsoever! I haven't played with it enough to find out things that aren't so great about it. All I can say is I love it so much, I have been using it in my home studio instead of my audio interface unit. I may get a second for my mobile studio kit.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid product for XLR Mic direct to USB So far this product has been absolutely rock solid. I've been using this with a Sennheiser MKH416 mic for VO work directly into Garageband on my MBP. plenty of headroom on the gain and was truly plug-and-play. The only reason I dropped the star is that after only a month of use, the USB connection is already a little loose. I am very careful with my gear so it may just be there is too much flex (or weak metal) used on this connector. Overall... highly recommended though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An absolute winner. I've been looking for a TRULY portable audio interface to record vocal for so long and I finally found the micport pro. I didn't expect much from such a tiny piece of equipment, but the recording quality turned out to be surprisingly good. The mic preamp is clean and provides more than enough gain, and the headphone level is ample. And you can adjust the sampling rate (44.1k / 48k / 96k) easily using the universal driver control panel. I mainly use it for vocal overdubbing and it works perfectly for that purpose. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great B&H Service Excellent! I host a weekly podcast and needed a way to power my professional hand microphones. Easy to order on B & H website and, as usual, their service was excellent. Product was delivered in 2 days. It worked great, right out of the box. Easy to set up. I was recording my podcast in just minutes. Love the headphone jack, and the preamp boosts the power in my microphone providing me with broadcast quality sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-quality, big features, small package I love the built-in zero-latency monitor and that this unit is SOOOO tiny. Great for use in the studio, but oh-so convenient to pack for the road. Very versatile. Can use with my high-quality studio mic or a stage mic on the road. Extremely high-quality A/D converter. Extremely high-quality anodized aluminum barrel design.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplicity perfected Plugged into my USB port and it worked...no bothering with software, no calling tech support to get it ready...it simply worked the first time and every time since. It has produced flawless sound for my lectures that I produce into flash movies. My only complaint is that it requires the receiver for a wireless lav mic, and that means its portability is less than I had hoped for; however, that is not the microport's fault...just the ancillary technology of the lav mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jackpot! I was under the gun to have a really good mic working at a session the day after I ordered the Micport Pro. I hadn't had this mic working before the date and I had paid a lot of money for it. The MicPort pro solved issues I had previously experienced and not had time to trouble shoot. The preamp and USB adapter was, as advertised, plug-n-play and it worked beautifully. I loved the volume control on the unit and it came in handy for light adjustments. Thanks B&H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, Nice Price I use this with a Mac Book Pro and FCP. I use a Schoops mic for doing VOs on the road. Works great for me. Small unit , easy to travel with. Be sure to use a good pair of headphones. Mac Book saw it right away. No problems.
