CEntrance MixerFace

MixerFace connects professional microphones with smartphones, tablets and laptops. The small, battery-powered mobile device includes two studio-grade microphone preamps and rich digital connectivity options, enabling professional-quality recording on the go.

The new product comes on the heels of CEntrance’s successful “HiFi-M8″ (pronounced HiFi-Mate) portable DAC and headphone amp for the audiophile listening community. MixerFace integrates the smart phone into the audio production workflow, creating mobile recording capability for the modern, on-the-go musician, broadcaster and VO artist.

MixerFace features

  • Each input features a Neutrik combo XLR jack with mic / line inputs and a wide-range gain control. Inputs can accommodate a guitar pedal board, as well as keyboards and other XLR or 1/4″ audio sources.
  • A Hi-Z input has been requested and may be added.
  • Two LED level indicators per channel (green for signal present, red for peak)
  • 48V phantom power for using professional condenser microphones. Switchable per channel.
  • 24-bit / 192kHz A/D and D/A converters.
  • An innovative monitoring and mixing section that allows to pan each channel and control the dry/wet signal mix in the headphones.
  • Loud headphone amplifier with digital volume control.
  • Fully portable operation. Fits right underneath the phone, straps right to it and serves as a cradle, forming one device to hold.
  • Works with old 30-pin iPhones and new lightning connector-based iPhones. Shorter cable options will be available as well.

The Indiegogo campaign aims to raise $52,000 USD by January 31, 2014 (11:59pm PT).

MixerFace is set for release in April 2014 and will be priced at $599 USD, while Indiegogo contributors can save a significant amount and be the first to receive the new product well in advance of stores.

Alto Professional launches Black Series wireless mobile speakers

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 11, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Alto Professional has announced the availability of its Black Series line of top-level loudspeakers and subwoofers with wireless capability and inbuilt power.

Alto Professional Black Series

Alto Professional’s all-new active Black Series collectively comprises three two-way loudspeaker models — namely, the Black 10, Black 12, and Black 15 (which, as implied by name, feature 10-, 12-, and 15-inch low-frequency drivers, respectively, alongside a 1.75-inch high-frequency driver, and are optimised with a 90° x 60° coverage field and an extensively tested high-frequency waveguide) — and two subwoofers — namely, the appropriately-named Black 15 Sub and Black 18 Sub (with 15-, and 18-inch low-frequency, long-excursion drivers, respectively).

All are designed and tuned to exacting standards in the USA with premium, purpose-matched components, and come complete with wireless technology. To be sure, all are remote-controllable via the Live Drive speaker app for iPhone and iPad, available for free from the App Store in December — level-match, adjust EQ, time-align, and more from anywhere in a room to nimbly adapt the speakers to suit new venues or performances! Pronounces Alto Professional Director of Engineering Bernard Werner: “Wireless control is incredibly useful, especially when the speakers are suspended or hard to get to. The Live Drive functionality lets you leave the normal mix position to tweak and fine-tune speaker settings via DSP so your system sounds perfect.”

Perfecting that system sound is helpfully boosted by the impressive inbuilt 2,400W peak (1,200W continuous) Class D power provided by each member of the Black Series family. For Jay Schlabs, Executive Director of Sales at Alto Professional, it’s a no- brainer. “We’ll put the Black Series up against any other speaker — and we have,” he touts. “The results in our live shootouts, every time, are unanimous. These speakers perform at an unrivalled level. People are blown away.”

The Black Series speakers are now available from Alto Professional dealers, priced at MSRP (including 20% VAT):

  • Black 10 – 799.99 EUR/£669.99 GBP
  • Black 12 – 899.99 EUR/£749.99 GBP
  • Black 15 – 999.99 EUR/£849.99 GBP
  • Black 15 Sub – 1,099.99 EUR/£919.99 GBP
  • Black 18 Sub – 1,299.99 EUR/£1,089.99 GBP
