USB microphones have steadily become more and more popular, and the idea is cool in and of itself, but unfortunately, most of these mics pretty much suck. You see, the problem is that people who are into recording and know the first thing about recording tend to own regular mics and standard audio interfaces, whereas the people interested in USB mics don't tend to know much about either recording or sound quality - and so there's little enough market for a great sounding USB mic. But you still can't argue against the ease and convenience of a USB mic. The solution: the MicPort Pro by CEntrance. The USB bus-powered MicPort Pro instantly turns any microphone (even condensers) into a USB microphone, offering you the quality you've come to expect from your favorite mics and the convenience of plug-and-play USB microphone recording. And there's more the the MicPort Pro than just USB input. The MicPort Pro is actually an ultra-small format USB interface, with a headphone jack for monitoring and rotary headphone and mic gain controls. Anywhere, anytime, anything - if you've got a laptop, a mic, and a MicPort Pro, then you're ready to record.
