CEntrance has launched a new version of the MixerFace R4R, mobile interface that now offers built-in audio recording. The new model retains all the features of its parent MixerFace R4, but adds ‘one-button record’ stereo micro-SD card recorder for in-the-field flexibility and recording redundancy.

CEntrance MixerFace R4RThe original MixerFace R4 turns a smartphone into a portable DAW for capturing musical ideas, interviews or live events at a remote location. Intended for podcasting, video blogging, newsgathering, live streaming, songwriting and other mobile recording uses, the passport-sized mobile recording interface makes it easy to record professional-quality audio anywhere. An internal, long-lasting rechargeable battery sets it apart from other portable audio interfaces, while two high-quality mic preamps with 48V phantom power support the use of condenser microphones for recording. Neutrik Combo input jacks with the Hi-Z feature allow plugging in electric guitars and basses.

The SD card recorder in the R4R enhances those applications as it captures audio immediately, without waiting for the phone. An extra benefit is the ability to stream audio via the phone, while recording a local copy to the SD card, a level of flexibility unmatched by existing field recorders.

The tripod-mountable device may also be used by video bloggers and DSLR videographers, offering better quality than typical on-camera audio. R4R will also add redundancy to live streaming events, allowing music sessions to be streamed online via the smartphone. R4R can simultaneously record a safety copy to the internal micro-SD card recorder, creating a professional backup.

‘With MixerFace we have made professional location recording accessible anywhere. These handheld, travel-friendly units fit in a gig bag and sound great, lasting for a whole session on a full charge,’ says CEntrance CEO, Michael Goodman. ‘The internal world-class A/D converters are protected by the lightweight, aircraft aluminium chassis and deliver professional sound quality in a small package. This portable marvel will liberate recording from the confines of the studio and let you find inspiration anywhere.’
