This looks like it could be interesting for people doing voice overs and podcasts.
MicPort Pro is a portable, low noise USB mic preamp featuring 24-bit/96kHz performance, 48V phantom power, zero latency monitoring, loud headphone output, and knobs for input and output level. MicPort Pro offers driverless, “wizard-free” installation and lets users record with most Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X audio applications. MicPort Pro ships with a 6′ USB cable and a carrying pouch. Users can download free software tools for recording and mixing from the CEntrance website.
MicPort Pro plugs into any XLR microphone and instantly transforms it into a recording device, and is ideal for recording vocals, sampling instruments, creating podcasts, and conducting interviews. Housed in a rugged aluminum chassis, MicPort Pro is especially useful on the road for portable recording and broadcasting use. MicPort Pro is powered from the USB cable and generates 48V phantom power internally, requiring no additional power for condenser microphones even when using a laptop.
Stereo and multi-track recording is also possible with MicPort Pro thanks to the CEntrance Universal Driver(tm) that aggregates input from multiple MicPort Pro units with the lowest latency on the market at less than 6 milliseconds, free for MicPort customers.
