It started out as the evolution of our legendary MicPort Pro, favored by musicians and broadcasters around the world. But as we listened to our customers, evolution became revolution! MixerFace lets you hook any professional audio gear up to your smartphone for recording and playback!


MixerFace integrates your iPhone into the audio production workflow, making mobile recording easy for broadcasters, musicians and VO artists on-the-go. Combined with a long-lasting rechargeable battery, two Neutrik™ combo jacks, headphone monitor and 24-bit/192kHz converters, you get an unbeatable mobile production tool, right in your pocket.


With its unique combination of sound quality, portability, and function, MixerFace sets you apart to record anywhere inspiration strikes you. Reclaim your freedom from the confines of a studio -- record (and produce) anywhere.

     
     
    Fidelity
 

Many apps let you edit, EQ, compress and upload your audio online in minutes. That makes iPhone an amazing audio production tool, but how do you get quality audio into the iPhone in the first place?


That's where MixerFace comes in. It packs two boutique mic preamps with independent gain controls and LED level monitoring, 48V phantom power, Hi-Z input, limiters, and more into a handheld device that fits underneath the iPhone!


MixerFace is the mobile recording interface that transforms your smartphone into a portable recording studio. It lets you capture the world of sounds, using your iPhone, Android or Laptop.

 
 
    Flexibility  
 

MixerFace was funded in part by Indiegogo contributors, who demanded that we included certain features. We agreed and the result is a very flexible audio capture device, useful in a variety of location recording situations.


With Hi-Z inputs for guitar and bass, studio limters and full digital I/O, MixerFace creates an end-to-end mobile recording solution for location recordists, ENG journalists, voiceover artists, and touring musicians.


Record with 24-bit/192kHz sound quality! MixerFace uses state-of the art converters and transfers digital audio to/from iDevices, for purest sound reproduction. The attractive, handheld device is made from tough, road-worthy extruded aluminum and works for an entire shift on a single charge.

 
 
       

 

 
         

Features

         
         

· Made in USA. HiFi-M8 is designed and precision-assembled by skilled craftsmen in America. CEntrance takes pride in the quality of its products. We test every unit before it goes out the door, so you get a great experience.

         
 

 

· Built tough. Lightweight and durable, the extruded aluminum body is styled to please. The curves are smooth on the hand and easy on the eye. Super looks and scratch resistance are given by the laser-engraved anodized finish.

 
         
 

 

· Portable. HiFi-M8 packs a powerful Lithium-Polymer rechargeable battery for the highest amount of power density. That means longer play time between charges. Battery status is conveniently displayed on an LED bargraph.

 
         
 

 

· Versatile. HiFi-M8 is a portable DAC/Amp with iPhone/iPad/iPod and USB inputs. This device does it all! Use your HiFi-M8 with your computer at work and with your iPhone on the way home.

 
         
 

 

· Audiophile. HiFi-M8 supports most headphones on the market. High output level means you never run out of loudness. The built-in gain, impedance and tone-shaping switches allow for dialing the sound just right.

 
         
 

 

· Dual Core. HiFi-M8 uses a dual-core XMOS microprocessor to achieve the dual functionality of a USB DAC and an iPhone Dock. HiFi-M8 runs custom CEntrance code, supporting 24-bit/192kHz, asynchronous USB audio.

 
         
 

 

· Driver Support. HiFi-M8 supports up to 24-bit/192kHz resolution with Macs and PCs. With Macs, no drivers are required. For Windows, CEntrance offers a free download of its world-renowned Unversal Driver.

 
         
 

 

· Worldwide Use. HiFi-M8 is designed for real-world use. The bundled power supply works around the globe and charges both HiFi-M8 and the attached Apple device. HiFi-M8 can also be charged from a car or a boat.
